Comic-Con 2014 is full of upcoming comic book adaptations, but one of the more unique movies based on an existing title may be Mark Millar's Kingsman: The Secret Service, which finds a rough and tumble street kid being groomed for a super-secret spy organization. Kingsman showed up at Hall H, and we have interview with the entire cast, including Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Sophie Cookson, writer Dave Gibbons and creator Mark Millar all making an appearance on the convention floor.
Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Super Hero Hype
We got to see some extremely fun new footage from Matthew Vaughn's upcoming spy thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service. The footage included a ridiculously action-packed scene that involved a secret agent trying to interrogate a character in the film played by Mark Hamill (Star Wars). It was really cool to see Hamill up on the big screen again. It got me even more excited to see him in Star Wars: Episode VII.
Unfortunately, the clip hasn't been released online yet, but we do have a photo of Hamill with the films' star Colin Firth, who's obviously not very happy with him. I've included a few other photos for you to check out as well.

Yes, what you see above is indeed how Mark Hamill meets his maker in the pretty amusing opening to The Secret Service comic book. However, the still above confirms that the Star Wars Episode VII actor will indead be playing Doctor Arnold. There do seem to be some similarities between the two (in that he's kidnapped), but even if his character does go out the same way, the fact that he's no longer playing himself indicates a very different tone and perhaps some major changes to the plot. We'll just have to wait and see. Either way, it's good to see Hamill doing something which isn't Luke Skywalker or Joker related, wouldn't you agree? Sound off with your thoughts below. Starring Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson, and Mark Strong, Kingsman: The Secret Service is set to be released on October 24th, 2014. »
Yesterday, Christopher Nolan and star Matthew McConaughey surprised Hall H with an appearance, arriving to show off the latest Interstellar trailer and talk about this mysterious sci-fi movie. The event marked director Christopher Nolan's first appearance at the San Diego convention center, and now we have video, which offers some insight into this epic adventure, while also keeping it shrouded in mystery. Take a look at the two in action.
The trailer shown won't debut online for quite some time, but according to a description from ScreenRant, this footage reinforces the theme from the previous trailers that Earth is running out of resources, which leads to this mission to explore other planets. It is also revealed that Jessica Chastain's character is actually the daughter of Matthew McConaughey's Cooper, who continues to age while Cooper remains the same, possibly as a result of some sort of time travel paradox. »
Yesterday, Comic-Con attendees were wowed by the surprise appearance of Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey, both making their Con debuts, at the panel for this fall’s highly anticipated Interstellar. More than 6,000 people were in attendance for the panel, which took place in Comic-Con’s fabled Hall H.
After some enigmatic small talk, Nolan cut to the chase and unveiled new footage from Interstellar, which isn’t intended to hit the web for a while. According to attendees, the footage was impressive and shows off a lot of the stunning space locations that the director shot for Interstellar.
Though multiple trailers have been released for the movie already, Nolan has done a solid job of keeping plot details under wraps. What do we know so far? Interstellar is set in a near-future version of Earth where climate change has made the planet increasingly inhospitable for humankind. In hopes of mastering »

On Thursday afternoon at Comic Con, director Christopher Nolan and actor Matthew McConaughey made a surprise appearance and brought along the new trailer for one of 2014′s most anticipated films, Interstellar. It was also the first time either of them had ever been to the yearly convention.
Nolan told the crowd in Hall H, “I wanted to see what the fuss was all about.”
Variety reported that during the Q&A, McConaughey explained his character:
“Cooper is a pilot, an engineer, and a widowed pilot of two children where civilization is just sustaining. There’s food, clean water, but they don’t need any explorers, no new bright ideas. Then something happens and the dream of being a pilot again knocks on his door.” The chance becomes “the greatest mission” he’s ever taken on. »

Earlier this week, we ran down The 10 Best Male Characters In Woody Allen's Films, and one of them was Michael Caine's terrific turn in one of the director's best films, "Hannah And Her Sisters." But as always, history could've played out differently as Allen revealed on a recent podcast with Sad Happy Confused, in a discussion about the great actors he's never had a chance to work with. "I have called [Robert] De Niro, I've spoken on the phone to Dustin Hoffman and Jack Nicholson. Nicholson was going to do 'Hannah and Her Sisters' — I wasn't thinking of Michael Caine at the time as I wasn't thinking of an English guy. It would never have occurred to me," he said. ""Now I am working with Joaquin Phoenix, who is a great actor, and Sean Penn [but] I just haven't had the opportunity to work with some of our greatest — Pacino, »

With two Academy Awards under his belt as well as unforgettable performances in films like Alfie, The Dark Knight, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Hannah and Her Sisters, Michael Caine is a living legend of cinema. So it's about damn time he teamed up with one of contemporary cinema's greatest odes to star power, Vin Diesel. That's right. Summit Entertainment is proud to announce that Michael Caine has joined the cast The Last Witch Hunter opposite Vin Diesel and Game of Thrones's Rose Leslie. Described as a supernatural action film, The Last Witch Hunter will star Diesel as an immortal witch hunter (naturally) who is seeking to stop a current NYC coven from unleashing a devastating plague on mankind. But he can't do it alone, and so must team up with his natural enemy, a female witch played by Rose Leslie. No mention is made in this press release what »
While doing press for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel, confirmed that the long-gestating project XXX: The Return of Xander Cage is finally happening. However, it won't materialize right away, since the actor will next move on to The Last Witch Hunter alongside Rose Leslie and Michael Caine for director Breck Eisner, and then Universal's Kojak before the XXX sequel, which will be partially shot in the Philippines.
Here's what Vin Diesel had to say about his upcoming slate of projects.
"I'm about to do a movie with Breck Eisner called The Last Witch Hunter where I play a 700-year-old New Yorker, which should be a lot of fun. Working opposite Michael Caine will be a blast. I've always wanted to work with Michael Caine so it'll be the first time I get to work with Michael Caine. Rose Leslie is also gonna be opposite me, she's amazing in Game of Thrones. »
Since making the wise and profitable move of returning to the Fast And Furious franchise, Vin Diesel has re-established a foothold on the box office following the disappointments of The Chronicles Of Riddick and, most notoriously, Babylon A.D. The third lower key Riddick instalment was played exactly right and with an upcoming voice role in Guardians Of The Galaxy Diesel is now in a position to branch out a bit. Could he fumble the ball again or might the dice tumble in his favour?
The Last Witch Hunter is a high profile project that could answer that question. Already featuring the pumped-up, Droopy-esque one and rising star Rose Leslie (Game Of Thrones, Utopia), the movie has added Michael Caine to the Satanic antics, or “Satantics” if you will. Details on Caine’s role are sketchy, but he will join Diesel’s immortal crone crusher in a fight to prevent the »

It was smart choices that led Matthew McConaughey's McConaissance, and he's going to keep going down that path. We'll see him on the big screen later this year in Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," he's gearing up to shoot Gus Van Sant's "Sea Of Tress" and now it appears he's lining up "The Company Man." The Black List script by Andrew Cypiot tells the true story of CIA agent Edwin Wilson who "went behind enemy lines to secure a weapons contract and report information back to the CIA shortly after the Cold War. He had a meteoric rise until company policies changed and he was unceremoniously fired. Even after, he continued to operate as a man without a country and became public enemy No. 1 to the U.S. Attorney’s office." This project is in the process of finding a director, before it will be shopped around, so it's »
