Why Comic Con Preview Night 2011 is Already Sold Out

Like usual, the first 15,000 tickets to San Diego Comic Con 2011 come with a pass to attend Preview Night (a four hour block full of retailers and presenters that takes place on Wednesday night, the day before the con opens).  Those 15,000 full weekend tickets go on sale during Comic Con, and last year they sold out in October.

This year, they were gone by the end of the weekend.  Wondering why?  We decided to take a look at some movie schedules.

The weekend before Comic Con 2011:

  • The Last Harry Potter Movie

The weekend of Comic Con 2011:

  • Captain America

The weekend after Comic Con 2011:

  • Cowboys & Aliens

Movies coming out in 2011 after Comic Con 2011:

  • The Smurfs
  • Underworld 4
  • Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1
  • Mission: Impossible IV
  • Sherlock Holmes 2
  • The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn
  • The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made

Movies that Will Be Coming out in 2012, before Comic Con 2012 (production will have begun, if not finished):

  • The Avengers
  • Men in Black III
  • Star Trek 2
  • The Spider-Man Reboot
  • Batman 3

Soooo, yeah.  We can see why next year’s preview night might have some gems.
