Fox Movie Studio Pulls Out of Comic-Con Main Event Over Piracy Fears (Exclusive)

“Studio feels it cannot protect exclusive footage in their annual San Diego showcase, insider tells TheWrap

20th Century Fox will not showcase its upcoming movie releases in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

The studio feels it cannot prevent the piracy of custom trailers and exclusive footage routinely screened for fans in attendance, an individual familiar with the decision told TheWrap. 

A representative for Fox declined to comment. SDCC was not immediately available for comment…

…The first individual added that Walt Disney was considering pulling out of their regular showcase inside the San Diego Convention Center’s grand hall as well, though a rep for Disney denied the claim. The studio would not disclose its Comic-Con plans.”
