If you don’t know what San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) is, then have a look at Wikipedia here which will give you the run down of the biggest movie convention in the world. It takes place at the San Diego Convention Center and last year, clocked in somewhere in the region of 126 000 people.

The 2010 SDCC kicks off on tomorrow but already San Diego is buzzing with excitement for the movies that are coming out in the coming months. One that we’re all very excited for is Scott Pilgrim vs. The World which stars Michael Cera and is directed by Egdar Wright. Scott Pilgrim has it’s own Comic-Con twitter feed called @SPvsCC. It’s worth following as they’ve already tweeted a couple of images which shows a gigantic Scot Pilgrim banner which is engulfing the Hilton Hotel and another image for a movie called Skyline which I’ve not heard of until today.

I’ve done a little bit of research and it would appear to be a movie from Black Monday Film Services with a plot-line that goes something like this (Thanks to IMDb):

After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.

Skyline stars Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, David Zayas, Donald Faison, Brittany Daniel, Crystal Reed, Neil Hopkins and is co-directed by brothers, Colin Strause and Greg Strause.

Universal Pictures have also released information on where you can find all the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Goodness at the event in a press release which i’ve placed below for your viewing pleasure.
