Is San Diego the new Hollywood? Sylvester Stallone says so, and Arnold Schwarzenegger agrees.
The two action stars unveiled their latest film Escape Plan at Comic-Con, saying they were drawn by the passionate fans who attend the pop-culture extravaganza.
Arnie characterised the Comic-Con crowd as "the most dedicated fans and the most passionate about the movie business".
While Sly said San Diego is "a real movie town," referring to it as "the new Hollywood".
Escape Plan centres on two ageing prison-escape artists who are locked away in what is called the world's most secure prison. The film opens in October.
