Comic-Con Wrap: Winners and Losers (Hiddleston video)

So who came out ahead? Here's my list of winners and losers of Comic-Con.
13

1. Legendary's "The Seventh Son," directed by Sergei Bodrov and starring a grizzled Jeff Bridges with an impenetrable accent as the last Exorcist demon witch hunter; "Game of Thrones" star Kit Harington seemed embarrassed to be in the movie, which also stars Ben Barnes and a lot of over-sized ugly flying hulking CG demons. These creatures turn up in a lot of movies these days.

2. Stuart Beattie's "I, Frankenstein," starring Aaron Eckhart as the Mary Shelley creature 200 years later, scars mostly healed, reimagined as a superhero. I kid you not. "Underworld" creator Kevin Grevioux, who decided to write this as a graphic novel, was also on the Lionsgate panel. The same demons and creatures show up here. 

3. Cassandra Clare's "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" (WB, August 21)  is yet another young adult fantasy series turned into a movie, directed by Harold Swartz and starring recent Snow White Lily Collins and Jamie Bower as Buffy-like demon hunters. More hideous CG creatures. Enough already.

4. "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2." Snooze.
