Comic-Con 2015: 10 Must-See Panels

3 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For one weekend every year, film, TV, and comic book studios descend upon San Diego to present and preview some of their biggest and/or most exciting upcoming projects. Comic-Con is where Marvel first announced the title Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s where Zack Snyder took the stage to reveal that the Man of Steel follow-up would be a “Batman vs. Superman” movie, and it’s where Tom Hiddleston entered Hall H in character as Loki and bent thousands of people to his will. But Comic-Con is host to more than just panels previewing blockbusters. Last year David Fincher took part in a small panel looking back on Fight Club, and this year Joss Whedon gets the Hall H stage all to himself to do…something. With the Collider staff set to embark on our trip to San Diego next week where we’ll be bringing you recaps, interviews, »

3 July 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Illustrator Andy Park has given us a peek at some of his early concept designs for the titular villain in Marvel’s blockbuster sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, posting the following images to his Facebook page…

 

“These are some initial passes done for the big baddie, Ultron. What a crazy fun project to work on,” states Park. “I don’t get to do the more robotic designs that often here given our resident robot experts in Ryan Meinerding, Phil Saunders, along with Josh Nizzi and Josh Herman. But when I do get a chance I just savor the moment. Too much fun!”

Avengers: Age of Ultron is out now and sees Joss Whedon directing a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill »

Firefly, Ep. 1.04: “Shindig”: Like sheep walking on their hind legs

1 July 2015 9:47 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Firefly, Season 1, Episode 4, “Shindig”

Written by Joss Whedon and Jane Espenson

Directed by Vern Gillum

Aired November 1st, 2002 on Fox

Welcome to Sound on Sight’s summer look back at Firefly, the beloved yet short-lived series that aired on Fox during the 2002-2003 TV season. Every Thursday, we will revisit an episode at a time of the show’s one and only season, in the order that they were meant to be seen. The correct sequence is accurately reflected on most, if not all, streaming services that currently have the show, but for those watching via other methods, the accurate order can be found here. Now, without further ado, time to spend some time with the most entertaining group of grifters in The ‘Verse.

Another episode that aired out of order during the original run (it aired sixth, when it is fourth in the natural order), “Shindig” is an episode »

DrDoom Revises: Avengers - Age Of Ultron

1 July 2015 9:20 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Launched earlier this year, Avengers: Age of Ultron was a landmark release for Marvel Studios. It featured a staggering cast of characters, and scored big at the box office and with a majority of the fanbase. While critical reviews overall were positive, they weren't as unanimous in their praise as they were with the first installment, citing issues with certain plot elements and the overall structure of the movie. Still, being able to incorporate such a huge cast of characters and also tell a story that was well balanced, paced and thought out is quite the task, and director Joss Whedon made no secret how stressful a film it was to make. He's done quite a bit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I think that most people are happy with the fact that the Russo Brothers are taking over for the Infinity War films. While of course Whedon should »

Watch the Terminator Genisys Cast and Filmmakers Play “Save or Kill”

1 July 2015 4:22 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Over the past few months I’ve played a lot of “Save or Kill” with actors and directors. Usually they turn out pretty good. Obviously some are better than others. But the one you’re about to watch with the cast and filmmakers of Terminator Genisys might be the best one yet. And it’s not just due to Emilia Clarke making some crazy faces trying to answer my questions. If you haven’t seen “Save or Kill” yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value. Han Solo or Indiana Jones – if you were told you could only save one and the other would be erased from existence forever, who would you pick? Finally, as I have said a few times, I really enjoyed Terminator Genisys. It’s easily the 3rd best in the franchise behind Terminator and Terminator »

Peyton Reed “Would Love” To Make Ant-Man 2

30 June 2015 9:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it isn’t currently on Marvel’s release calendar, a sequel to this year’s Ant-Man is certainly in the cards, assuming the first film does well. Marvel isn’t really in the business of making standalone movies (in fact, of the core Avengers, only the Hulk is waiting for his sequel greenlight), so as long as the bite-sized hero fares well at the box office and is met with enough praise (reactions from fans and even James Gunn have been extremely positive), more adventures for the tiniest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are inevitable.

One person hoping for another film is Ant-Man director Peyton Reed. In a new interview with Variety, Reed expressed his desire to return for future installments should they get the go-ahead from Marvel Studios:

“If we’re fortunate enough to do another Ant-Man movie, I would love to do it.”

James Gunn says Ant-Man is one of the top three Marvel movies ever

30 June 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

If there is anyone that Marvel fans trust now more than James Gunn, I don't know who it is. Joss Whedon used to be that guy, but with Avengers: Age Of Ultron not meeting many expectations and his departure from the studio ranks, Gunn seems to be the guy everyone looks to for confirmation. Gunn is very outspoken on social media and does not mince words with what he thinks about everything Marvel and otherwise.... Read More »

Kevin Feige Talks Thor: Ragnarok Director; Comments on Kenneth Branagh Rumor

29 June 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While just about every Marvel character will be suiting up for Captain America: Civil War, it’s a near-certainty that Thor won’t be joining the party. That means we may not seem him again until his next solo film, Thor: Ragnarok, which opens on November 3, 2017. While that’s still five films away, Marvel is getting the wheels moving faster than you might think. Steve recently spoke to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at the press day for Ant-Man, and they touched on Thor 3. Feige says, “probably towards the end of the summer we would announce a filmmaker and a writer. May be the same person, I don’t know, may be two different people.” [caption id="attachment_451351" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Marvel[/caption] Having it be one and the same person, would be a change of pace for Marvel. Now that Joss Whedon has left, James Gunn is the only writer-director left working for the studio. »

Jurassic World Just Passed A Box Office Landmark

29 June 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jurassic World continues its nationwide box-office domination. After surpassing a number of records, including highest-grossing opening weekend of all-time, the resurgence of the Jurassic Park franchise has trampled over Avengers: Age of Ultron and Furious 7 to become highest-grossing domestic release of the year.  It sounds farfetched when you think about how quickly the latest chapter of the Fast and Furious saga raced up the box-office ladder, but, according to Box Office Mojo, Jurassic World is, indeed, at the top of this chart. Coming in second is Age of Ultron, the last of the Joss Whedon-directed Avengers films, with Furious 7 coming in third. Rounding out the last two spots of the top five are Kenneth Branagh.s live-action Cinderella for Disney and Pete Docter.s emotionally charged and hilarious Pixar movie, Inside Out. But even though Inside Out was considered another success for the animation giant, according to critics, »

Comic-Con 2015 Schedule for Saturday, July 11th

28 June 2015 8:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Every day at Comic-Con is insane, but Saturday goes to a level of madness. Even without Marvel showing up, this year will likely be no different as Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures continue to show their movies on that day, and there will be other high-profile panels as well. While not all of the movies are listed, the studio holding the panel says enough. If Warner Bros. shows up without Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice doesn’t show up, there will be a minor riot. If 20th Century Fox doesn’t bring Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and/or X-Men: Apocalypse, they’ll have messed up big time. Also, Hall H doesn’t just have big movies. It’s bringing back the always excellent “Women Who Kick Ass” panel and there will also be “An Afternoon with Joss Whedon”. Just get in line for Hall H right now. Check out more highlights below, »

Tom Holland Cast As New "Spider-Man"

27 June 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have confirmed that after a worldwide casting search, actor Tom Holland will play 'Peter Parker'/'Spider-Man' in the next "Spider-Man" film, in theaters in IMAX and 3D, July 28, 2017, directed by Jon Watts, director of "Cop Car", the upcoming thriller that made its debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival:

"...Marvel and Sony Pictures, and producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal conducted an extensive search for both the actor and the director. The studios and producers were impressed by Holland's performances in 'The Impossible', 'Wolf Hall' and the upcoming 'In the Heart of the Sea', followed by a series of complex screen tests.

"Following Marvel’s tradition of working with the brightest next wave of directors, Watts also went through multiple meetings with Feige, Pascal, and the studio, before winning the job..."

Mixed Reactions For Marvel's 'Ant-Man' After First Press Screening Plus New Promos And Pics

26 June 2015 6:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Marvel has a couple of hurdles to overcome with "Ant-Man." There's the ever present shadow of Edgar Wright and what-could-have-been looming over the movie, and there's convincing mainstream audiences that the character and movie is just as exciting as anything "The Avengers" have served up. And there's making a movie that's on-par or better than the source material, which the film's co-star Evangeline Lilly says she wasn't impressed with. "I am still trying to figure out how to get my hands on original ‘Ant-Man’ comics. I’ve been given a couple recent ‘Ant-Man’ comics. No offense Marvel, but they are total crap," she told Collider. "I really want to read the original ones, because I got through two and I was like, dude, you can’t force-feed me another one of these magazines. It was terrible. But Janet’s not in them, and neither is Hank and neither is Scott. »

Marvel Actively Looking To Mix Things Up With Captain Marvel And Black Panther Directors

24 June 2015 8:41 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

To this point, there has been a certain uniformity in the director choices that Marvel Studios has made for their feature films. From Jon Favreau to Joss Whedon to James Gunn to Peyton Reed, every single filmmaker behind one of the company's projects to this point has been a white man. In the near future that may change in a big way, however, as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has gone on record saying that they are looking to have more diversity when it comes to making both their Black Panther and Captain Marvel projects. With Ant-Man now less than a month away, the executive/producer recently sat down for an extensive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and it was during this conversation that the subject of diversification in director choices came up. Discussing whether or not there has been a concentrated effort to find a black filmmaker to make »

Marvel's Kevin Feige Discusses Diversity, Meeting With Ava DuVernay, Spider-Man & More

24 June 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Whenever interviewers have a chance to sit down with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, they take the opportunity to ask him every question they can think of. So when I read the interview posted by The Hollywood Reporter, it didn't surprise me how many topics they cover in a short amount of time. Other than the obvious questions about Ant-Man and how important it is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (a lot, apparently), he goes on to cover everything including diversity in Hollywood, Spider-Man, and creative control. Marvel Studios doesn't allow creativity Earlier in the month, WB executive Greg Silverman discussed the differences between WB/DC's strategy and Marvel. He stated WB hires "master filmmakers" that are going to make their own movies with creative control, and suggested it is in some way different than what Marvel Studios does with their films. readmore postid="179084" In response to this, Feige says, »

The intimate, psychological sci-fi of Humans

24 June 2015 3:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Humans has already been a big hit for Channel 4. Ryan looks at what makes its low-key approach to sci-fi so brilliantly effective...

Warnings: contains mild spoilers for Humans episodes one and two.

A delicious air of tension hangs like cobwebs over Humans, the Channel 4 and AMC co-production which began airing earlier this month. It presents a near-future where a new breed of robots - called Synths - are both cheap and commonplace. They clean our schools, look after our elderly and do our cooking and cleaning.

The Synths carry out their menial tasks with serene eyes and an eerie half-smile, yet not everyone is comforted by their presence. Take Laura Hawkins (Katherine Parkinson), for example: a busy mother of two, she returns home from work one day to discover that her husband Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) has purchased a Synth called Anita (Gemma Chan) to help with the household chores. »

Sony Pictures And Marvel Announce Tom Holland Is New Spider-man

23 June 2015 6:34 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The search for the new Spider-man is over.

Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced Tuesday that The Impossible star Tom Holland would be taking over the role of Peter Parker and the web-slinging superhero.

Jon Watts, who directed the indie thriller Cop Car, has been set to direct the still-untitled film.

Fyi: 'Jurassic World' Has Broken a Lot of Box Office Records

23 June 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Brad wrote yesterday, Jurassic World did better over its second weekend than initial estimates indicated, raking in $106.6 million over the Friday-to-Sunday frame to wrest the crown for best second weekend from Marvel's The Avengers, which pulled in $103.1 million during its second weekend back in 2012. Impressive, yes, but that is far from the only record Universal's latest dino adventure has toppled over the course of its box office run. Through Sunday, Jurassic World has made a whopping $402.8 million at the domestic box office, making it Universal's highest grossing movie ever (not accounting for inflation) and also the fastest film to cross the $400 million mark after doing so in just 10 days of release. The previous film to hold that record was, you guessed it, The Avengers, which isn't a surprise, but perhaps it will surprise you to learn that it took Joss Whedon's superhero team-up a full 14 days to hit that mark, »

Tom Holland Cast As Spider-Man

23 June 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s been a long wait for Sony and Marvel, under the terms of their new Spider-sharing arrangement, to whittle down the list of potential candidates to take over playing Peter Parker and alter ego Spider-Man. But the red web flag is flying over Marvel HQ (or, er, the company just put out a press release), bringing news that The Impossible’s Holland has won the role, signalling that Spider-Man will remain British (sort of) for now.In related news, director Jon Watts, who has been drawing praise for his work on thriller Cop Car and horror movie Clown, has scored the job of bringing Spider-Man back to the big screen in his next solo adventure. “As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life,” says Kevin Feige. “We spent a lot of time with Jon »
