Episode 423 - SDCC Movie Special: Frankenweenie, Oz the Great and Powerful, Iron Man 3!

Jimmy covered the press conferences for Frankenweenie, Oz the Great and Powerful, and Iron Man 3 at San Diego Comic Con. Frankenweenie had  director Tim Burton, executive producer Don Hahn, producer Allison Abbate and voice actor Atticus Shaffer. Jimmy manages to get a question in but Tim dances around it for some reason. Hmmm. Oz the Great and Powerful had director Sam Raimi, actresses Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis, and producer Joe Roth in attendance. Really great talk about the upcoming movie and its relation to Baum's original world. And Michelle Williams even answers the Dawson's Creek movie question! Finally, the Iron Man 3 press conference had stars Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle along with director Shane Black and producer Kevin Feige. Big announcements and a great final quote from RDJ himself! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
