Games Of Thrones' Maisie Williams In Talks For The Last Of Us

2 hours ago

Sam Raimi took to the stage in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con to update fans on the status of The Last of Us feature-film adaptation, which we revealed he would produce back in March. We were hoping news would break that Raimi finally agreed to direct the film . because he would be perfect. He has not. But he did say that they are having conversations with another perfect fit: Maisie Williams from HBO.s Game of Thrones. Raimi and game writer Neil Druckmann made it clear during this surprise The Last of Us presentation that nothing has been signed, and that they are having conversations. But Williams, 17, would likely play Ellie, a young survivor of a fungal outbreak that turns people into flesh-craving zombies. Williams would likely need a co-star in Joel. The game centers on these two characters as they work their way across a devastated landscape, seeking »

Joaquin Phoenix May Be The Frontrunner To Play Doctor Strange

2 hours ago

Throughout the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kevin Feige and his creative team have have been willing to cast actors and actresses you wouldn't normally peg as being up for starring in a comic book vehicle. Robert Downey Jr. and Edward Norton seemed like the furthest choices from playing in the Marvel sandbox, and even with the upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy we see Glenn Close and Benicio Del Toro building far flung sandcastles for their resumes. Which means that the following rumor shouldn't be that shocking: we might be getting a Doctor Strange franchise with Joaquin Phoenix at the head. The Wrap has the exclusive scoop that "multiple individuals close to the casting process" are all touting the Academy Award nominated actor as the closest contender to the role. While it's still quite surprising that Mr. Phoenix would be this hotly tipped to be the forerunner in the »

Star Wars' James Earl Jones And Carrie Fisher Only Recently Met For The First Time

4 hours ago

Both Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones are true legends of the Star Wars franchise. The former, of course, played the beautiful and heroic Princess Leia in the original sci-fi franchise, while the latter lent his deep, booming voice to the dark, foreboding presence of Darth Vader. Because one was on the set while the other was doing all his work in a recording booth, however, the two never actually got to meet. that is, until they both guest starred on an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Earlier this morning, the writing staff of the CBS sitcom was on-stage at San Diego Comic-Con, and while discussing the Season 7 episode "The Convention Conundrum" and the cameos made by both Fisher and Jones, showrunner Steve Motaro revealed an interesting new bit of Star Wars trivia. According to the writer, the two actors. time on set was actually the first time that »

Is Ms. Marvel Going To Be In Avengers 2?

6 hours ago

Diversity is a growing topic in the world of comics. Archie Andrews recently died to protect his gay best friend. Thor's mighty hammer is being handed down to a newly minted super heroine. And the shield of Captain America will be carried by a beloved black character. On the movie front, Joss Whedon's been credited as leading the charge, fighting to keep Black Widow in The Avengers after she was poorly introduced in Iron Man 2. With Avengers: Age of Ultron, the creator of such female-empowering properties as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly has revealed he has four female leads lined up for his next Marvel outing. Do the math. This could mean an exciting new addition to the Marvel movie universe. Perhaps Ms. Marvel herself? Hey U Guys spoke with Joss Whedon at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere in London, where the writer-director of Avengers: Age of Ultron »

See Nicolas Cage As Superman In The Death Of Superman Lives' Trailer

7 hours ago

Superman Lives remains one of the industry's great what-ifs. At the very least, had it been released in the late nineties, it would have changed the entire genre of superhero filmmaking that we know today. But the production eventually petered out, leaving behind a sea of what-ifs and how-coulds. Filmmaker Jon Schnepp, however, isn't going to take "how could" for an answer! The trailer has been released for his documentary The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? and it presents a load of goodies for any Superman fan. It was the nineties when Warner Bros., emboldened by the success of the Death of Superman comics, decided to bring the man of steel to the big screen. Their heavy hitter was Tim Burton, who had previously resurrected Batman for Warner Bros., and he'd be bringing along recent Oscar-winner Nicolas Cage. That wasn't nearly enough to bring the project to fruition, and »

Can You Find The Secret Hidden In The One I Love's Trailer?

8 hours ago

How do you sell a movie that's premise takes a bonkers but brilliant turn in its second act, without giving away said twist? This is the seemingly impossible task put to the marketing team of RADiUS, the distributor of the unconventional and sensational romantic-comedy The One I Love. From the film's first trailer viewable above, it seems the answer is to tease--but not reveal--that twist, then roll out its scads of critical praise. Well played, RADiUS. Well played. Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss co-star in The One I Love as Ethan and Sophie, a married couple on the brink of separation. But there's a ray of hope when their therapist (Ted Danson) sends them on a weekend retreat where they can focus on their relationship, and rediscover what brought them together to begin with. But at a beautiful, isolated home with a pool and guesthouse, the two discover something strange »

Does Marvel's Doctor Strange Already Have A Composer?

16 hours ago

While Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch was busy dodging Doctor Strange rumors during the Dreamworks panel, composer Christopher Young let a few tidbits slip on the upcoming superhero film in the middle of "Behind the Music: Crime, Death and Resurrection." The panel consisted of six film and television composers - Jeff Russo (Fargo), James Levine (American Horror Story), Daniel Licht (Dexter), Brian Reitzell (Hannibal), Steve Jablonsky (Transformers franchise), and Young (Deliver Us From Evil) - discussing their work on various projects. During the conversation, the frequent Scott Dickerson collaborator commented on his possible involvement in the director's 'Marvellous' next project. "Behind the Music: Crime, Death and Resurrection," moderated by Salem's Shane West, was an entertaining look into the world of scoring film and TV (and video games, which is apparently the most secretive of all mediums), but the highlight was when Young hinted that he might be continuing »

If Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gets A Sequel, Expect Bebop And Rocksteady

17 hours ago

There have been four theatrically-released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films so far, and, surprisingly, they've only begun to scratch the surface of what started as a gag but soon became a massive mythology. Those early movies dabbled in science fiction with the effects of the mutagenic ooze and time travel, while the animated Tmnt focused on mostly-faceless supernatural monsters. But if next month's Teenage is a hit, producers are about to open the floodgates to the wild and wacky world of Ninja Turtle action. In an interview during Comic Con, Screenrant talked to producer Brad Fuller and director Jonathan Liebesman about future installments of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles featuring a number of other characters from the comic and show's rich continuity. Fuller was asked about characters he wanted to include in this film but couldn't, and he answered... Casey Jones. Bebop and Rocksteady. We had those conversations throughout development of »

Here's Why The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Will Be Aliens, After All

18 hours ago

They are teenagers. They are mutants. They are ninjas. They are turtles. And they are aliens. At least, they will be in next month.s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, opening everywhere on August 8. So says Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman, who took to the stage of Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday to help promo Jonathan Liebsman.s new Turtles movie. The team showed much longer action footage that amplified the humor (the turtles, especially Michelangelo, are legitimately funny). But when they opened the floor to fan questions, they had to address one lingering issue surrounding this Tmnt reboot: the fact that the Turtles might be aliens. Eastman was asked by a fan during the Q-and-a why they felt it was necessary to make the Turtles "aliens" in this version of the story. And why he never really came out and said that they Are »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Just Got A Hysterical Red Band Trailer

19 hours ago

Holy crap, there's another Hot Tub Time Machine. Above is the red band trailer (Cover Your Eyes, Children) for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 , which gets festive for audiences this Christmas. The weirdest element of this trailer? Continuity! This looks like it picks up directly after the first film where (Spoiler Alert For Hot Tub Time Machine) Nick (Craig Robinson) and Lou (Rob Corddry) exploited time travel to become rich. Because this is a dopey sequel, John Cusack and Lizzy Caplan are nowhere to be found . one could argue that Cusack was sort of slumming it with the first film, though Hot Tub Time Machine, in many ways, has more integrity than this year's The Bag Man . His High Fidelity collaborator Steve Pink had no qualms about returning from the first film to direct the sequel, however, which is again written by Josh Heald. Really, Cusack and Caplan are the »

Black Widow And Captain America Kick Some Ultron Ass In New Avengers 2 Concept Art

19 hours ago

It won't be long until we get our first official look at The Avengers: Age of Ultron. This Saturday, Marvel Studios is having their annual presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, and in addition to having the entire cast of the 2015 blockbuster come up on stage, we also expect that it will be the first time that we will get to see footage from the movie. Of course, we're dying with anticipation to see what they bring, but helping us keep our wits about ourselves are the new pieces of concept art that keep popping up online. Yesterday we saw the release of two pieces highlighting Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch and Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man, but today Marvel has released new artwork featuring Chris Evans' Captain America and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow - the stars of this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier - who are »

Dwayne Johnson Basically Confirms That He Will Play DC Comics' Shazam

21 hours ago

Someone's gonna get it.. pic.twitter.com/eH7GzWxx0u— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) July 24, 2014 Well, this pretty much seems to settle it. Dwayne Johnson has been teasing a potential role as a DC Comics character going back to January of this year, and while everything he's been saying thus far has been largely a tease, this basically settles it. While we still can't call it 100% official until Warner Bros. confirms it with an announcement (which will likely come later this week at San Diego Comic-Con), it now looks like the gig is in the bag: Dwayne Johnson is going to play Shazam in a live-action, big screen comic book movie. When comparing the character of Shazam against the three criteria that Johnson set in place during his discussions with DC, it's pretty easy to see how it fits the mold perfectly. As the star explained to us earlier »

Can you smell what The Rock is cooking? Normally, the smell in Hall H is body odor. Today, it was a freebie giveaway for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.s latest film, Hercules.

Christopher Nolan Dazzles Hall H With A Breathtaking New Interstellar Trailer

22 hours ago

Matthew McConaughey.s first trip to San Diego Comic-Con is a big story. Christopher Nolan.s first trip to Comic-Con is an even bigger story. The two of them showing up to present new footage from the upcoming space-exploration thriller Interstellar? Well, that.s easily the biggest story I was able to cover at Comic-Con on Thursday. The powerhouse duo surprised crowds by showing up unannounced at the tail end of the Paramount panel in Hall H. Matthew McConaughey took the stage first, following a new Interstellar clip that largely relied on old newsreels of politicians (like John F. Kennedy), physicists (Neil Degrasse Tyson was spotted) and former astronauts (such as Buzz Aldrin) talking about risk being "the price of progress" and how our community used to take such pride in moments of human accomplishment. They talked about the need for us, as a human population, to explore . particularly in »

Pirates, Troy, And A Rescue Mission: Community Movie Plot Revealed?

22 hours ago

Ever since the second season of Community, fans have had a very clear idea of how they.ve wanted the future of the show to play out. To put it in five simple words: six seasons and a movie. Now that the show is about to actually start its sixth season . thanks to a last minute pick-up by Yahoo! Screen earlier this summer . the idea of an actual Community movie seems like a real possibility. But what would it be about? Today at San Diego Comic-Con, show creator Dan Harmon dropped a very interesting hint. Speaking at what was dubbed the .Community Reborn. panel in the San Diego Convention Center.s Ballroom 20, Harmon was asked by the moderator about the potential future for beloved character Troy Barnes in Season 6, and while it doesn.t sound like Donald Glover will be coming back for the next season of the series, the »

Ben Affleck's Batman Looks Pretty Damn Sad In His First Close-Up

24 July 2014 3:05 PM, PDT

#75 pic.twitter.com/Caj2N8iTAb. ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) July 24, 2014 Hey, remember when the fine folks over at DC and Warner Bros were generous enough to give us a look at Batman.s mask yesterday on the floor of Comic-Con? Well, consider that nice little tease officially blown out of the water by the embed director Zack Snyder dropped above! In case you can.t tell, that.s Ben Affleck outfitted in the actual mask a hundred thousand people have stared at on the convention floor over the last day. To state the obvious, it looks a lot better with a real, live human face inside of it. In fact, it.s a pretty striking take on The Dark Knight. That being said, it will do absolutely nothing to stop the jokes and pithy little comments about how over-the-top serious Ben Affleck.s Batman looked in his only other still. Seriously, »

24 July 2014 3:02 PM, PDT

Later this summer, Lois Lowry.s cherished novel The Giver arrives in theaters, adapting a coming-of-age sci-fi book that has been required reading for teenagers for decades. The latest version stars Jeff Bridges as The Giver, Meryl Streep as Chief Elder, and has director Phillip Noyce behind the lens. But it almost didn.t shake out that way. Years ago, Jeff Bridges wanted to direct and adaptation of The Giver, and he shot a lot of footage, which he.d like fans to see. Soon. Lowry and Bridges were part of a panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, prepping audiences for The Weinstein Company.s take on The Giver. And Bridges, ever the storyteller, revealed that once upon a time, he set out to film The Giver, with his father, Lloyd Bridges, in the role of The Giver. He says that he recruited one of his young nephews »

You'll Never Believe Who Shows Up In The Penguins Of Madagascar

24 July 2014 2:29 PM, PDT

DreamWorks Animation brought just enough footage of Penguins of Madagascar to San Diego Comic-Con to convince me that it.s destined to be one of the funniest films yet to open this year. Confidently screening more than 20 minutes of polished footage, Thursday.s Hall H panel played up all of the quirky, hysterical traits we appreciate in the tight-knit team of adventurous penguins. The footage was a huge hit. though the biggest laughs came from an unexpected cameo. If you don.t want to know this surprising character who appears in Penguins of Madagascar, stop reading now! We know that Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich are part of the ensemble. As part of the Hall H presentation, though, Penguins of Madagascar co-directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith screened the first six minutes of the movie, which are a flashback to the first day the baby penguins of Skipper (Tom »

Benedict Cumberbatch Addresses Those Doctor Strange Rumors

24 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT

Benedict Cumberbatch triumphantly made his first visit to San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday morning, though he wasn.t supporting Sherlock, The Hobbit, Star Trek or any other of the geek-friendly projects to which he has contributed. Instead, Cumberbatch introduced screaming fans to his new animated character, Classified, from November.s Penguins of Madagascar. But before he could elaborate on that, he had to address a prevalent Marvel rumor. which he did in hilarious fashion. Cumberbatch and John Malkovich took part in an Hall H panel on behalf of DreamWorks Animation.s Penguins of Madagascar. And while fans participating in the Q-and-a session were instructed Not to ask any Sherlock questions, one girl found a way around the obstacle to ask a Marvel question. Knowing that Benedict Cumberbatch.s name has been attached to the role of Doctor Strange in a standalone Marvel movie, the lady asked Malkovich and Cumberbatch which »
