46 minutes ago

Beyond all the comic book nonsense, the 60-second glimpses of superheroes and the trailer reveals that will be online 24 hours after they premiere, Comic Con does offer some cool panels, one of which this year was a Q&A session featuring "Fight Club" author Chuck Palahniuk and the film adaptation's director David Fincher, among other guests, discussing the story's genesis, marketing and legacy as Palahniuk prepares the April 2015 release of a 10-issue, graphic novel sequel to "Fight Club" through Dark Horse Comics, which will pick up 10 years after the novel left off. I have yet to listen to the entirety of what follows, but thanks to Jeff Goldsmith you can listen to the entire Comic Con panel directly below. After Goldsmith's intro, it runs for about 50 minutes so dive in and enjoy. Also, I'd love to read your favorite quotes from the Q&A, so if you listen, post them below in the comments. »

Watch: 'No Good Deed' Trailer and Poster, Starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson

1 hour ago

I was sleeping on the job apparently when the first trailer for No Good Deed dropped over a month ago, but the new thriller starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson is hitting theaters on September 12 and along with the trailer the first poster is now available. The film has bounced all around the 2014 release schedule, but finally is coming to theaters centering on a story following Terri (Henson), a devoted wife and mother of two, living an ideal suburban life in Atlanta when Colin (Elba), a charming but dangerous escaped convict, shows up at her door claiming car trouble. Terri offers her phone to help him but soon learns that no good deed goes unpunished as she finds herself fighting for survival when he invades her home and terrorizes her family. Something tells me this isn't going to turn into a story where the two make a peach pie »

Leaked 'Deadpool' Test Footage Suggests Why the Film Wasn't Made

3 hours ago

"Great, now could you do it with a little more sarcasm this timec" Some test footage for a Deadpool movie, you know, a spin-off of Ryan Reynolds character from the all-American classic, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is something Reynolds has long fought for over at Fox. Last year Rob Liefeld, a comic book writer, made mention of some test footage for a movie based on the character was shot with Reynolds as the title character -- full suit and all -- with the current attached director Tim Miller. Now that footage has been leaked online in handheld, shaky camera phone vision. The most recent draft of the screenplay was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and while Miller is currently attached, if this is what they're using to pitch the thing... best of luck. via Cs yt id="ONLgZNO05CQ" width="500" »

Seems the Long Wait for 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Might Have Been Worth It

16 hours ago

For starters, it's nice to see something promoted at Comic Con that a) I didn't have to fly to San Diego to stand in line to watch and b) actually looks and sounds as if it could be something worth watching out for. When I first read director George Miller didn't have a script for Mad Max: Fury Road, instead using 3,500 storyboards to write the film and map it out visually, that got my attention. And then this trailer dropped today and sort of made me stand back and say, "Damn, maybe this long wait was worth it." The first time I actually wrote about the film, at least as far as I can tell, was October 2009 when Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron were attached to project. Filming, however, didn't begin until July 2012, wrapped December 2012 and reshoots then took place in November 2013. The release date has been all over the »
