MTV: Sony's Comic-Con Panel

SAN DIEGO — Sony hit San Diego Comic-Con's Hall H with guns blazing this year. Literally. We saw Joseph Gordon-Levitt blasting hapless, hooded victims with shotguns and Jessica Biel aiming pistols at futuristic hovercrafts. Then there was Milla Jovovich firing off rounds while spin-kicking enemies and Matt Damon brutally sticking it to the "haves" in a dystopian future.

Blood was spilled and bullets flew, with the future (and the apocalypse) a consistent theme, as stars and filmmakers presented previously unseen footage from the similarly themed sci-fi epics "Resident Evil: Apocalypse," "Total Recall," "Elysium" and "Looper." CLICK HERE to read about 10 things we learned at the Sony panel.
