Comic-Con 2014: Legendary confirms Godzilla 2 monsters and King Kong reboot

26 July 2014 6:10 PM, PDT

Legendary Pictures didn’t reveal any Jurassic World footage during their Comic-Con panel (boo!), but that might be because they’ve got plenty of other monsters on their slate. Gareth Edwards appeared via video message, joking that he’ll be busy with “a small little sci-fi film” (that’ll be his Star Wars spin-off), but he did confirm that he’ll be back to tackle the Godzilla sequel after that. He also introduced a brand new clip of Godzilla roaring (was he on top of Alcatraz Island?), as a thank you to the fans who have made it a huge...

26 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT

Also part of 20th Century Fox’s Comic-Con panel was Hitman: Agent 47, the reboot of the videogame actioner. This time out, Rupert Friend stars as the numerically monikered, genetically altered assassin for hire. Friend wasn’t present in Hall H as he was shooting Homeland in South Africa, but he introduced the exclusive trailer footage via a video message. The trailer opens with a remixed version of ‘Voodoo Child’, with Friend’s antihero handcuffed to the table in an interrogation room. The back of his head (which is stubbly, as...

Comic-Con 2014: Kingsman: The Secret Service shows key, action-packed scenes

26 July 2014 12:36 PM, PDT

Spy caper Kingsman: The Secret Service blew the doors off Comic-Con’s Hall H with a storming presentation on Friday 25 July, showcasing two big, slick action sequences. Comic creator Mark Millar hosted the panel, and talked about missing the fun in modern spy movies, laughing, “When Bond kills a guy now, he cries in the shower about it afterwards.” Director Matthew Vaughn prepared a video intro for the crowd with Mark Hamill in tow. Vaughn wore a Kick-Ass mask, and after a brief intro, he spun the camera to reveal Hamill wearing a...

Comic-Con 2014: First look at Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman

26 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman has been revealed in an exciting first-look by Zack Snyder, who was presenting his Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice at Comic-Con 2014. Glad in Xena-esque get-up, Gadot's Diana Prince looks almost like a gladiator, with the costume design going for more of a fantasy feel than a sci-fi vibe. Check out the image in full below: [Click on the image to see it in hi-res] Snyder also presented the first footage of Ben Affleck's Batman at the panel. Clearly inspired by Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, the...

Comic-Con 2014: Tense footage from The Maze Runner revealed

26 July 2014 10:41 AM, PDT

20th Century Fox hosted a big Comic-Con panel in Hall H on Friday 25 July. Comic-book fans might have been disappointed that there was no word (or footage) from the new Fantastic Four reboot which opens next year, and no update on X-Men: Apocalypse, but the footage from The Maze Runner seemed to please fans and impress newcomers. With stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario and Will Poulter joining director Wes Ball and the book’s author James Dashner on-stage, two scenes from the film were presented, alongside a previously unreleased...

Comic-Con 2014: Kevin Smith unleashes creepy Tusk trailer

26 July 2014 12:14 AM, PDT

Kevin Smith returned to his now traditional Comic-Con slot to host another evening of profanity, insight and movie chat. The loquacious Clerks director regaled the crowds with tales from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, describing how he was moved to tears by standing inside J.J. Abrams’ recreation of the Millennium Falcon. He also reiterated that his Cop Out star Bruce Willis is the most difficult person he’s ever worked with, and he chatted at length about his career, his homelife and his passion for podcasting. But the...

Comic-Con 2014: Daniel Radcliffe reveals full Horns trailer

25 July 2014 11:27 PM, PDT

Daniel Radcliffe made his Comic-Con debut with Horns, a twisted horror tragedy based on the novel by Joe Hill. Despite making his name starring in eight Harry Potter films (a franchise that’s attracted no small fandom), Radcliffe had never been into the convention’s Hall H until today. Horns sees the actor play a young man accused of the rape and murder of his girfriend, and after a night of heavy drinking, he awakes to find that he's sprouting a pair of demonic horns from his forehead. The audience was treated to the new Us trailer...

Comic-Con 2014: Star Wars Rebels footage bows

25 July 2014 6:25 PM, PDT

Whether or not Comic-Con 2014 will bring any Episode VII exclusives remains to be seen, but we’ve at least had some fresh Star Wars action in the form of a Rebels sneak peek. Three clips plus a new, Easter Egg-y trailer from the new animated TV show were shown to fans. The first clip debuted new baddie The Inquisitor – and more importantly, The Inquisitor’s double-bladed, spin-action lightsaber. “We’re always looking for new ways to design weaponry,” explained exec producer Dave Filoni. “And that includes new lightsabers.” Filoni also...

Comic-Con 2014: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel reaction

25 July 2014 1:07 PM, PDT

While Interstellar may have stormed in and stolen the show at Paramount’s Hall H presentation at this year’s Comic-Con, it was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that dominated the panel up to that point. The reboot brought along original Turtles creator Kevin Eastman, as well as some of the Platinum Dunes producers who brought the film to life (Michael Bay was not among them). Eastman was clearly enthused about the latest incarnation of his creation, saying, “I’ve seen the movie, and it’s absolutely fantastic. I was brought in very early on,...

25 July 2014 1:01 PM, PDT

Maisie Williams could be taking the lead in the upcoming adaptation of The Last Of Us. Game creator Neil Druckmann revealed at Comic-Con that the actress – best known for her role as Arya in Game Of Thrones - is in talks to play the role of Ellie. Druckmann made the announcement alongside Sam Raimi, who is set to produce the big-screen version of the PS3 horror hit. “I won’t be directing the movie but I’ll be all over it,” Raimi said. Druckmann too will have a large degree of creative control, not least writing the screenplay.  ...

World Exclusive Blood Ties Poster

25 July 2014 7:33 AM, PDT

The big names are up top in the exclusive new poster for Guillaume Canet’s gritty ’70s thriller – and why not, when you’ve got a cast like this…  Clive Owen is the man at the centre of the knotty New York crime flick – fresh out of prison after a grisly gangland killing sent him down. Waiting outside the gate is his sick dad (James Caan), his junkie ex-wife (Marion Cotillard), his new girlfriend (Mila Kunis), his cop brother (Billy Crudup) and his ex-girlfriend (Zoe Saldana) – all making it increasingly difficult for Owen’s ex-con to stay...

Watch the first Whiplash Trailer online

25 July 2014 2:28 AM, PDT

Drum roll please… Whiplash, the Sundance wowing, Grand Jury prize winning, buzz gathering indie has released its first trailer. The debut of director Damien Chazelle (who also won the jury prize at Sundance last year for the short film that grew into this feature), Whiplash is the story of a teenage jazz drummer and his brilliant/bullish/bonkers teacher. Miles Teller (Divergent, That Awkward Moment, soon to be Mr Fantastic…) plays musical prodigy Andrew Neyman to J.K. Simmons’ ruthless Mr Fletcher – an orchestra leader who seems to take...

First look at Rupert Friend in Hitman: Agent 47

24 July 2014 11:52 PM, PDT

The first pair of images have surfaced online for Hitman: Agent 47, Aleksander Bach’s Hitman sequel, starring Rupert Friend as the titular assassin. Paul Walker had initially been cast to replace Timothy Olyphant, but Homeland star Friend certainly looks the part here, serving up another round of bald-headed badassery. In terms of plot details, things are still pretty sketchy, although early rumours reported an outline in which Friend’s genetically modified killer is charged with protecting a waitress from a shadowy organisation...

Peter Jackson may direct an episode of Doctor Who after finishing The Hobbit

24 July 2014 11:08 PM, PDT

Having long been a fan of the show, director Peter Jackson has previously mentioned an interest in directing an episode of Doctor Who, only for his incredibly busy schedule to get in the way. However, that schedule might be about to open up a little once work is completed on The Hobbit, and according to Steven Moffat, the director’s interest is real. “I’ve spoken to him face to face, and he would like to do one,” says Moffat. “He accepts that there’s no money and that there’s no time, and it would have to be when he’s available – and...

Ben Affleck stars in new Batman image

24 July 2014 10:53 PM, PDT

A new image has arrived online from Batman v. Superman, giving us a new look at Ben Affleck in character as the caped crusader. Released to coincide with the character’s 75th anniversary, the new image shows Affleck looking rather grim in his cowl and cape, in a distinctly atmospheric pose. The close-up shot also gives us a chance to examine the new cowl in more detail, with its skin-tight, furrowed brow and distinctively short ear-protrusions. Hopefully this will just be the start of the weekend’s Batman v. Superman...

Comic-Con 2014: Cumberbatch talks Doctor Strange

24 July 2014 10:04 PM, PDT

Benedict Cumberbatch has addressed rumours of being cast as Doctor Strange… sort of.  Making his Comic-Con debut to promote Penguins Of Madagascar, he answered a question about which superhero he’d like to play with “Nurse Normal”, quickly adding "that was a joke on Doctor Strange."   Before any further teasing of his possible involvement with Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme, he decided the cape he’d most like to don would be Batman’s.   John Malkovich, in case you’re interested, said he’d like to be Lois Lane.    The DreamWorks Animation...

Comic-Con 2014: Interstellar panel reaction

24 July 2014 6:50 PM, PDT

The surprise film in Paramount's Hall H panel at Comic-Con 2014 was Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.   A unexpected addition at the end of a showcase that included Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Project Almanac and a crowd-wowing Dwayne Johnson, the audience went suitably nuts for Matthew McConaughey, making his first Comic-Con appearance, and exuding that huge movie star charisma that was felt across the 6,600 capacity.   Hesitant to reveal too many secrets, McConaughey described Nolan as a director whose "reach always exceeds his...

Comic-Con 2014: Goosebumps footage reaction

24 July 2014 6:02 PM, PDT

Sony had a quieter presence at this year's Comic-Con (last year they had Spider-Man and RoboCop stopping by) with a showcase for Pixels and Goosebumps.   It was the latter that dominated the panel. Pixels, which is currently in the middle of shooting in Toronto, had a video message from director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone) promising a new level of ‘ground-breaking’ special effects, to bring 8-bit, pixelated classic arcade characters into the real-world, including Pac-Man, Galaga, Space Invaders and more... ...
