While Comic Con has certainly been a battle between Marvel and DC properties, with Legendary Pictures scoring some sweet Godzilla hype as well, filmmaker Duncan Jones (Moon) had an Ace up his sleeve for Con attendees who have chomping at the bit to see footage from his upcoming Warcraft movie. It’s been years since the project was announced, but this year’s San Diego Comic Con has finally shed some light on the heralded property, as Jones released the first action-packed teaser trailer – and people seemed to dig it.
While we don’t have the actual video of the teaser trailer, /Film has posted a description of the fantasy world Jones has created in detail:
We start with a room full of Alliance weapons. Swords, shields and more. “I’ve spent more time protecting my king than my own son,” a character says in voiceover. Lots of men in Armor and some banners. »

This afternoon, Legendary Pictures took the opportunity to showcase director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) showcased footage from his forthcoming fantasy epic Warcraft, and while that footage probably won’t see the light of day online, Legendary has released an incredibly brief title teaser video, which you can watch here…
And via Screen Rant, here’s a brief description of the footage that was shown today:
The Warcraft teaser that followed was narrated by both a human and an Orc from the film (each seemed to be reading from their war diaries), indicating that the movie will very much examine what leads to the conflict between the two races from both of their perspectives (think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Most of the footage was focused on depicting the various environments and landscapes of Azeroth, there was also some material teasing actual battle sequences involving the two clans. »

At the Legendary Comic-Con panel today, director Duncan Jones revealed a bit of footage from his upcoming movie, Warcraft, an adaptation of the extremely popular online game of the same name. Though that footage is confined to the event at the moment, we do have a tiny teaser of the Warcraft title that has been unveiled online.
Running eleven seconds, the video is only the very tip of the iceberg of Duncan’s Warcraft, which is scheduled to come out in 2D and 3D on March 11th, 2016, and will be featured in IMAX theaters. Look for more footage to be revealed in the coming months. In the meantime, you can check out the teaser below, courtesy of Legendary:
Warcraft stars Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown. Duncan Jones directs off a rewritten script by himself that’s based on »

After a sweltering few days in San Diego, Legendary Pictures offered up some chills in the form of Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, wedged in between the revelation of some Godzilla 2 monsters and footage teasing a new King Kong movie called Skull Island.
The 2015 gothic horror-romance Crimson Peak, which will star Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Charlie Hunnam, got a special showcase on Saturday—showing off both its ghosts and a cast of somewhat sinister mortals. “It’s a gothic romance. It’s R-rated. It has incredible beauty, but it’s also very violent, »

Marvel's TV-related Comic Con panel is finishing up with some news regarding its two shows on ABC. First there's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." which announced several new characters that are set to make an appearance in the second season.
The previously announced Lucy Lawless is confirmed to be playing veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Isabelle Hartley. Joining her this season will be Nick Blood as Lance Hunter who has been reimagined from the comics as a mercenary in this interpretation whom Coulson turns to for help.
Finally there's "Dollhouse" actor Reed Diamond who has been cast the big bad of the season - Daniel Whitehall (aka. The Kraken). In the comics, Whitehall is a legendary Hydra agent who spent decades training the group's best talent.
The biggest news though came through a video with Patton Oswalt in character as Agent Koenig. The »

Is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. bringing on a costumed hero?
At Marvel TV’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Friday, a special video featuring not one but two Patton Oswalts (as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Billy and ??? Koenig) announced that Barbara Morse – aka costumed Marvel comics hero Mockingbird – was calling for Director Coulson. “She just wanted to say that if he needs her, she’s in,” declared one the Koenigs.

Marvel is currently holding down their TV panel at Comic-Con right this very second, and just dropped two big announcements about ABC's mid-season adventure series Marvel's Agent Carter. It seems the hour long drama will be getting three directorial alumni from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Maybe even more surprising is that the two directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, brothers Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, are returning to the Marvel Cinematic universe to direct not one, but two episodes of Marvel's Agent Carter. They will help set the tone for the series, taking on the second and third episode.
It was also asked if Dominic Cooper was returning to play Tony Stark's father Howard Stark, which »
It's Marvel TV time at Comic-Con, with an hour-long panel that promises to feature Jeph Loeb plus still-unnamed castmembers from both "Marvel's Agents of Shield" and "Marvel's Agent Carter." The question is, will Marvel stop with just the two ABC dramas, or will they start trying to build excitement for the four upcoming Netflix series by, say, bringing in "Daredevil" stars Charlie Cox and Deborah Ann Woll for surprise appearances? (Woll has a long and impressive history of Comic-Con cosplay, including stints as Hit Girl and Axe Cop, so I wouldn't be shocked in the least if she came dressed as Elektra — or Daredevil, for that matter.) And will Loeb be as bombastic as in his usual interviews, or will he acknowledge how rough so much of "Agents of Shield" season 1 was before "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finally gave the show direction? I'll be live-blogging all the action, updating »

16:05What a way to end the panel, eh? Thanks for joining us and stick around on DS for more Comic-Con action!

15:59The next fan asks if we could see something for season two. "The problem with that is that we literally started shooting yesterday, »
Legendary’s long-in-development Warcraft movie had a presence at last year’s Comic-Con, with a teaser trailer, so there’s no reason to expect that we won’t be finding out a lot more about the Duncan Jones-directed fantasy epic in the next few days. We already knew that the plot of the World of Warcraft adaptation would feature “Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games,” but now Comic-Con attendees have glimped a new logo for Warcraft, in addition to some props that Legendary put out on display.
Luckily, Legendary tweeted the logo for all of us stuck behind the desk and not galavanting around San Diego right now, and I’ve enclosed that tweet below.

While I was visiting the Legendary booth at Comic-Con, I saw that they had a logo for Duncan Jones' Warcraft along with some badass weaponry from the movie! I took a few photos of them so you can see them for yourself. They were behind some glass so there is some major glare.
The most famous of the weapons is the Doomhammer. It's called the Doomhammer because "when its owner takes it into battle, it spells doom for the enemy." The orc weapon was unleashed in the name of the Horde. They also have the Dragon Sword, and the Lion Shield, which is a symbol of the strength of Azeroth.
Warcraft stars Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown. There's still not much known about the movie or the story, but Foster had this to say about it a »

This may not be the most exciting thing to come out of San Diego Comic-Con today, but the official logo for Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones’ Warcraft adaptation has been revealed. The logo was on display at the Legendary Pictures booth, along with some weaponry. Take a look at the logo here…
Jones finished shooting Warcraft a few months ago, so hopefully we’ll be seeing some teaser footage or images from the film as Sdcc continues.

Last week, we reported that Legendary's Saturday panel in Hall H will include director Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak and this summer's thriller As Above, So Below, although many fans were expecting and hoping to get their first look at Duncan Jones' video game adaptation Warcraft. With Preview Night at the Con in full swing, Legendary Pictures revealed the official Warcraft logo on their Twitter page. Is this a hint that Warcraft may be invading Hall H? It's too soon to tell now, but check back on Saturday afternoon to see if this video game adaptation makes a surprise appearance.

Legendary unveiled the first Warcraft movie logo at their Comic-Con booth tonight and uploaded it to Twitter for the rest of us. [Update: Legendary also brought a few props from the movie to display.] Duncan Jones is directing the World of Warcraft feature adaptation and revealed last year that the story centers on "Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games.” We now have a glimpse of concept art, a set image of Jones at work, and this title logo. Legendary has a panel in Hall H on Saturday, and I bet they are preparing to reveal more from the movie after the studio brought a Warcraft teaser trailer to Comic-Con 2013. Starring Paula Patton, Travis Fimmel, Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown, Warcraft opens March 11, 2016.

Need for Speed, 2014
Directed by Scott Waugh
Fresh from prison, a street racer who was framed by a wealthy business associate joins a cross country race with revenge in mind. His ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins.
The Fast and Furious franchise has a certain level of appeal. They are utterly preposterous and very silly, but they have a charm and energy about them which makes them hard to criticise. It seems as though the filmmakers behind Need for Speed thought they could get away with the same thing. The only problem is that the film has all the charm of a dead slug and it’s paced about as well as one.
Based off the game series in name alone, »

A leaked casting breakdown has revealed apparent details about the new supporting characters in Marvel's upcoming"Agent Carter" series on ABC.
Film Divider posted the description and claims the key new roles include:
Deputy Director Roger Hooley: A hardworking, principled older man and Peggy’s boss. As you might expect, he’s bothered by ongoing problems in his personal life as well as the challenges of his day job.
Agent Jack Thompson: 30-something. Handsome and damn well knows it. The polar opposite of Dooley, he doesn’t take kindly to women in the workplace, nor how little recognition he gets. Worse, he wants Dooley’s job and is desperate to prove himself.
Edward Hutchins: A highly professional agent with an unusual problem; duplicity. »
