See Mondo's Awesome 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Comic-Con Posters

3 hours ago

This week, Guardians of the Galaxy his the big screen, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a more stellar sci-fi film that will truly make you feel like a kid again, while still packing some adult-sized action and adventure. And to celebrate the release of the Marvel film, Mondo has released a cool batch of posters. However, the bad news is that these posters were sold at Comic-Con in San Diego, and they're all pretty much sold out. Of course, they're still cool to look at, and might even make a cool background on your computer or phone. Plus, one of them is the cutest picture of Rocket Raccoon and Groot you'll ever see. Here's Mondo's prints for Guardians of the Galaxy (via SlashFilm) starting with Tyler Stout: Francesco Francavilla - Star-Lord Phantom City - Drax the Destroyer Vance Kelly - Gamora Kevin Tong - Rocket Raccoon Randy Ortiz »

Paul Greengrass Set to Direct 'Agent Storm' Al Qaeda & CIA Thriller

4 hours ago

Following his direction of the true story Captain Phillips, filmmaker Paul Greengrass is sticking with non-fiction. Deadline reports The Bourne Ultimatum and United 93 director will develop to direct and produce an adaptation of Agent Storm: My Life Inside Al Qaeda and the CIA. The book (hitting shelves in the United States this September) is written by the titular agent, Morten Storm, along with Paul Cruickshank and Tim Lister, and tells about his life as a former Islamic radical as he became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence. That certainly sounds like quite a compelling spy thriller. Here's the official synopsis of the book: Morten Storm was an unlikely Jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, »

We're All Geeks: Embracing the Crazy, Passionate Comic-Con Culture

9 hours ago

"There's a Comic-Con in all of us," my driver said as we headed toward the airport in San Diego on Sunday afternoon. It's true. As I head home from my ninth year returning to the Comic-Con International in San Diego, I have been reflecting on the experience that is this ambitious comic book convention turned geek madhouse. ~160K people descend upon San Diego every July to spend five days waiting in lines, squished together, tripping over each other, in hopes of getting their hands on some exclusive toy or product or look at a trailer or their favorite movie star. From the outside looking in, it seems crazy. Who would do this? Why do people subject themselves to this madness every year? Because we are passionate about what we love. What makes Comic-Con special is that it is an incomparable convention in size and execution – there is no other comic »

'Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair' Could Hit Limited Theaters in 2015

10 hours ago

Along with news that Quentin Tarantino is definitely preparing to shoot The Hateful Eight and might have a sci-fi project up his sleeve, there might be another treat in store for fans of the bloody brilliant filmmaker. Speaking during his Dynamite Entertainment panel at Comic-Con, hyping a Django Unchained and Zorro comic book crossover, he was asked if audiences in the United States would ever get a chance to see Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair, the original longer Cannes Film Festival cut from 2003 instead of the two-volume split we got over two separate years. And the good news is Tarantino says there have been talks with The Weinstein Company to finally release it in limited theaters, maybe as early as next year. Read on! Here's what Tarantino said, (via SlashFilm) when asked about Kill Bill: What’s going on with that is originally back when Kill Bill »

Watch: 'Hobbit' Comic-Con 2014 Panel Hosted by Stephen Colbert

11 hours ago

With The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hitting theaters this weekend, this year marked the final Comic-Con for Peter Jackson to bring J.R.R Tolkien's Middle-Earth to the masses. The teaser trailer show during the film's panel has already been unveiled today, but the hour-long panel with Jackson himself and the cast of the concluding chapter of The Hobbit was thoroughly entertaining and is available online in full. The panel was hosted by Stephen Colbert, who actually arrived in full wardrobe as his Laketown spy cameo character in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. You'd be hard-pressed to find a bigger Tolkien fan, and he gave a lovely speech full of his love for the films and had tons of fun. Watch! Here's the panel for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies from Flicks and the City: In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. »

It's the role that everyone has been dying to see Christoper Walken take, they just didn't know it. Walt Disney Pictures has just announced the star of a wide variety of films such as Catch Me If You Can, Hairspray, Wedding Crashers, Man on Fire and Mousehunt will take an animal role in their new live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic The Jungle Book from director Jon Favreau.

First Look: Ben Stiller in 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb'

13 hours ago

In what will likely be the final adventure in this family friendly franchise, Ben Stiller is back in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and the first photos from the film have arrived. We get to see Robin Williams back as Teddy Roosevelt, and also Dan Stevens joining the film as Lancelot (but no sign of Rebel Wilson yet). This time the action moves across the pond in London's British Museum. This time the Egyptian Golden Tablet of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah, which makes the museum exhibits come to life at night, is corroding, and something must be done to save it. This will probably be more of the same, but whatever. Here's the first photos from Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb from USA Today: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel, »

Video Blog: Recap of Warner Bros' Comic-Con 2014 Hall H Footage

14 hours ago

One last recap of another Hall H presentation at Comic-Con - this time for Warner Bros, who brought quite a show with big screens and big footage. Not only did they kick things off with a very special, short, but exciting tease for Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman, they continued with a very nostalgic discussion about The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies moderated by Stephen Colbert, and a look at Jupiter Ascending and the big breakout of Comic-Con 2014: George Miller's long-awaited returned Mad Max: Fury Road. Everything about this Comic-Con panel was impressive and compelling, and we had to take a moment to talk about everything on Saturday night after emerging from Hall H. Check it out below. Here's our video blog from Comic-Con 2014 featuring Ethan and I discussing Warner Bros' Hall H panel: We did our best to record this quickly after the panel, »

Eva Green to Reteam with Tim Burton for 'Miss Peregrine's Home'

14 hours ago

After teaming up with direct Tim Burton for the lackluster Dark Shadows, the stunning and brilliant Eva Green will reunite with the director of Batman and Beetlejuice for another project. Variety has word that the star of the forthcoming graphic novel sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is currently in talks to star in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, an adaptation of Ranson Riggs' novel of the same name. Green would play the title character, a guardian for a group of orphan children who have special powers but find themselves and the island where they live threatened by creatures out to destroy them. Here's hoping that Burton can turn out something much more inspired than his recent adaptation fare. Despite the fact that Alice in Wonderland has a huge young fanbase and made tons of money at the box office (and and has a sequel on the »

Must Watch: 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' First Trailer

14 hours ago

"Will you follow me... one last time?" The beginning of the end. Warner Bros has debuted the first teaser trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the grand finale in his Middle Earth series, and it looks to be a very nostalgic and exciting ending. Martin Freeman returns as Bilbo, Luke Evans as Bard, Richard Armitage as Thorin, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, and everyone else they have in the illustrious cast. As this is the first teaser, it doesn't reveal too much footage, but does hint at how epic the "Battle of the Five Armies" will be and how he's trying to match the tone of Lord of the Rings, so it can lead right into Fellowship. I'm really looking forward to seeing this sure-to-be spectacular Hobbit finale. First teaser for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies direct via »

Ryan Reynolds as the Real 'Deadpool' in Leaked Test Reel Footage

16 hours ago

For anyone who saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine, you were probably disappointed by the bastardized version of the cocky, hilarious and deadly Marvel character Deadpool. The film took away the best asset of the Merc with a Mouth, and we've yet to see any real progress on a feature film version that would have featured Ryan Reynolds in the role, but in the proper fashion. We've even heard of a test reel that was done by VFX wizard and director Tim Miller for Fox. And now if you're quick, you can get a vibe for what a Deadpool movie might have looked like (or hopefully will look like) with a leaked video showing some of the footage. Here's the leaked test footage from Deadpool for the time being (we'll replace if/when can) from JoBlo: Update! For those wondering about this, Deadpool creator Robert Liefeld did also tweet this out earlier: »

Watch: 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Gets Red Band Comic-Con Trailer

17 hours ago

From our Comic-Con coverage this year, you might have already seen the cool vehicles that were on display from Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But there was also a panel for the film hitting theaters next month, and directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller debuted a new red band trailer for the graphic novel adaptation, not to mention planting a seed of hopes for Sin City 3. But of course, since it took nine years to get this follow-up off the ground and into theaters, we won't hold our breath. But still, if you've been waiting that long to see this new story set in the seedy underbelly of Basin City, this saucy, bloody trailer certainly brings the goods. Keep an eye out for Miller and Rodriguez making cameos in the trailer too. Watch below! Here's the new red band trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For »

Quentin Tarantino Confirms 'Hateful Eight' Shoot, Has Sci-Fi Desires

17 hours ago

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino was at Comic-Con over the weekend to promote a crossover comic book between his titular character form Django Unchained teaming up with the swift swordsman Zorro. But of course, the discussion eventually turned to his film projects, which is where production of his western The Hateful Eight was brought up. Following word from Kurt Russell that director Quentin Tarantino was trying to line up an early 2015 production start for the once postponed film, Tarantino himself has confirmed that the film will indeed go before cameras, though didn't solidify exactly when. But that's not all. Tarantino was also asked whether or not he would like to jump into the realm of fantasy or sci-fi, both genres that he has yet to touch as a writer and director. Funnily enough, The Guardian quotes Tarantino as saying, "If you had asked me a few years ago I would have said, »

News from The Maze Runner panel at Comic-Con announced that director Wes Ball is already developing the sequel The Scorch Trials to shoot later this year as long as the first film does well at the box office this fall.

Comic-Con 2014: Marvel Reveals Hulkbuster Arm & Damaged Ultron

27 July 2014 11:58 PM, PDT

We may be finished with Comic-Con 2014, and while the big Marvel panel was Saturday evening, that didn't stop the comic book studio from giving fans a couple more surprises. Earlier this week, several intriguing items from Marvel's cinematic universe hit the Marvel booth (like Loki's staff and Black Widow's slick new motorcycle), but today, the studio actually showed off a few pieces from The Avengers: Age of Ultron. One was the fist of Tony Stark's Hulkbuster armor used to keep the big guy in check when he gets a little out of control. And another is the early version of Ultron, a drone cyborg created by Stark himself gone rogue. And there's one more that may be a little worrisome for Captain America fans. Look! Here's the Hulkbuster fist busting through some metal, early Ultron, and Cap's shield: From the #MarvelSDCC booth yesterday, two revealed props from #Avengers #AgeOfUltron! What do You think they are? »

Watch: First Teaser Trailer for 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'

27 July 2014 10:50 PM, PDT

"Are you here to fight with us?" The beginning of the end is here. The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I has arrived, and it looks fantastic. The franchise really improved with Catching Fire last year, and the first chapter in the two-part finale seems to be on the same track with director Francis Lawrence back. Jennifer Lawrence looks more troubled than ever trying to united all of Panem against President Snow and get back Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) from his public prisoner status in the Capitol. It's a little bittersweet seeing Philip Seymour Hoffman here, but it's sure to be a hell of a performance. Watch! Here's the first teaser trailer for Francis Lawrence's Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 via Facebook: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I is the first movie in the two-part finale of The Hunger Games franchise, based on the books by Suzanne Collins. »
