29 minutes ago

Stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel appeared with executive producer Stephen Nathan to tease the 10th season of Bones, opening the panel with a short clip from the upcoming season of Booth getting into a prison fight.  Boreanaz kicked off the panel's screwball tone by taking selfies of himself with his fellow panelists and with the audience.  Despite the jokey atmosphere, Nathan and the actors did reveal details of the 10th season and the 200th episode.  Hit the jump for more.

Edgar Wright Directing the Insane Sounding Grasshopper Jungle After Wrapping Baby Driver

2 hours ago

It feels nice to be an Edgar Wright fan right now.  Sure, it would have been nice to see his version of Ant-Man, but we’re getting the 100% Wright movie Baby Driver in its place.  That film already promises to revisit the fertile creative environment that allowed him to make Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.  And now we get to see what his stab at Ya filmmaking looks like in addition to that. Don’t worry though, it’s not typical Ya (even if it were, Wright wouldn’t execute it in a typical manner).  He’s been brought onboard to direct Grasshopper Jungle for Sony.  I haven’t read this book but it sounds nuts in a good way.  Because it literally has giant grasshoppers.  Hit the jump for more on Edgar Wright directing Grasshopper Jungle. Per Deadline, Wright will tackle the film, »

Horns Trailer Startles With Surprising Humor; Strong Performance From Daniel Radcliffe

3 hours ago

Wow.  For some reason I was kind of expecting Horns to not be any good or, at least, not be something I’d be into.  I’ve actually been carrying this perception around since the film started shooting some time ago.  But this trailer just changed my mind and I’m now looking forward to it in a major way.  I was totally underestimating this movie and certainly wasn’t expecting this kind of biting sense of humor.  Especially from director Alexandre Aja, a talented guy whose work I have yet to be able to connect with.  Now, thanks to this trailer from today’s presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con, I’m legitimately enthusiastic. In this adaptation of the Joe Hill novel, Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ig Perrish, the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend (Juno Temple).  Hit the jump to check out the new Horns trailer and poster, »

Agent Carter to Feature Edwin Jarvis, aka Howard Stark’s Butler and Inspiration for Tony Stark’s AI

3 hours ago

During a roundtable interview at Comic-Con with Agent Carter producers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, our reporter Rachel Howard learned that a very special character will be featured on the period television show.  Since the screenwriters have had such a good time planting Easter eggs and messing with time-travel tropes in their Captain America features, they said that fans could expect more of the same in the show, which takes place in 1946 and finds Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter marginalized while working for the covert Ssr (Strategic Scientific Reserve) when the men return home from WWII.  Joining Carter on screen will be none other than Edwin Jarvis, a name comic book fans should know quite well.  Hit the jump for more. Here's a snippet of the Agent Carter interview that relates to Jarvis.  The full interview with McFeely and Markus will be up shortly: Question: Given how successful Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. »

Let’S Be Cops Comic-Con Panel Recap Featuring Rob Riggle, Keegan Michael Key, Nina Dobrev, and Damon Wayans Jr.

4 hours ago

I had steered clear of Let’s Be Cops partially because I wasn’t that interested in the premise—a couple of guys impersonate cops and get into comic hijinks—but I was interested enough to where I didn’t want to spoil the jokes.  It was part of a 20th Century Fox’s Comic-Con presentation, so I couldn’t avoid it any longer, but now they’ve piqued my interest. Hit the jump for my Let’s Be Cops Comic-Con panel recap. The moderator brought on actors Rob Riggle, Keegan Michael Key, Nina Dobrev, and Damon Wayans Jr.  Jake Johnson is the co-lead with Wayans, but he couldn’t be here because he’s in New Orleans shooting Jurassic World.  However, we did get an amusing video message where we see him lounging in a hotel room and strongly implying he just paid for kinky sex. We’re told »

The Maze Runner Comic-Con Panel Recap: Dylan O’Brien and More Reveal the Grievers; Wes Ball Says He’s Aiming to Shoot Sequel This Fall or Winter

5 hours ago

The “Ya adaptation” genre has been rather female-dominated when it comes to feature films, but a unique entry is aiming to take hold this fall with Fox’s The Maze Runner.  Based on the James Dashner novel of the same name, the story revolves around a teenager who wakes up in the middle of a maze with no memory of who he is, surrounded by other teenage boys who also don’t know who they are, where they are, or what the maze is.  Fox touted the film this Friday at San Diego Comic-Con, with Dashner, director Wes Ball, and stars Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter, and Kaya Scodelario in attendance. In addition to discussing their approach to the adaptation, entering into a marketplace that has recently been dominated by female-led stories, and changes from the book, Ball revealed that they’re hoping to start shooting the sequel The Scorch »

Ant-man Actors Exit Due to Scheduling Conflicts

5 hours ago

Marvel's Ant-Man has certainly had its fair share of drama behind the scenes before it has even started production.  The Interwebs are well aware of once-upon-a-time director Edgar Wright's long-standing attachment to the project and his supposedly amicable departure from it.  Wright's exit was more about creative differences than scheduling conflicts, which is the reason for the latest bout of difficulties besetting the film.  Hit the jump to find out who is on the way out. Starring Paul RuddMichael DouglasMichael PeñaEvangeline Lilly, and Corey StollAnt-Man opens July 17, 2015. As The Wrap reports, a trio of actors is departing Ant-Man due to scheduling conflicts brought about by the film's production delay.  The sharp-eyed readers among you will notice that Patrick Wilson was not mentioned in the casting roundup above.  That's because Wilson has exited the picture, along with Matt Gerard and Kevin Weisman.  Wilson's character, which was »

Game Of Thrones Comic-Con Panel Recap: D.B. Weiss, David Benioff, George R.R. Martin, and the Cast Look Back at Season 4

7 hours ago

Game of Thrones Comic-Con panels are tough because there’s nothing to really show.  Unlike The Walking Dead, the new season isn’t only a few months away.  Shooting on Got: Season 5 is just about to begin, so it’s not like there’s going to be a full trailer ready to go.  Instead, these panels function as retrospectives on the most recent season.  As a big Game of Thrones fan, I always enjoy these leisurely, pressure-free panels that almost function like debriefs.  We don’t know much about season five, but we’re going to learn about the most memorable scenes from last season Hit the jump for my Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel recap. [Warning: Spoilers for the Show through Season 4] The presentation began with an amusing gag reel for season four, which is capped with a great bit of Tyrion approaching his trial.  Presumably, this will be on the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD.

Game Of Thrones Blooper Reel Reminds Us That Lannisters Are People Too

7 hours ago

Game of Thrones is such an atmospheric show, and so immersive, that it’s easy to forget that it’s a film set just like any other (okay, it has something like 5 units, but you know what I mean).  So seeing a blooper real for the show can be surprisingly disarming.  You so closely associate these characters with the cruel, high stakes world in which they live that seeing them crack a smile or break character is shockingly refreshing. At the San Diego Comic-Con today, the Game of Thrones panel unveiled a blooper reel for this past season and it’s definitely worth a watch. We’ll have more in-depth coverage of the panel shortly, but you should kill a few minutes with this first.  Hit the jump for the Game of Thrones blooper reel. Present at the panel today were showrunners David Benioff and D.B. WeissJohn Bradley (Sam »

Evil Dead TV Show Planned; Sam Raimi Writing and Bruce Campbell Will Be Involved

8 hours ago

An interesting piece of news that came out at the panel for The Last of Us today was that Sam Raimi is currently writing and Evil Dead TV show.  Which is bizarre to me, but no more bizarre than the tortured development history of Army of Darkness 2.  Where does this leave that film?  And what does this mean for Evil Dead 2 (the apparently-still-gestating sequel to Fede Alvarez’s remake)?  We have no idea because Raimi didn’t mention anything in regard to those projects.  He barely mentioned anything in regard to this project except for the fact that he’s co-writing it with his brother Ivan Raimi and that Bruce Campbell will be involved. Hit the jump for more on the potential Evil Dead TV show.One thing that excites me about this is the fact that cable networks (and even regular networks if you look at NBC’s »

8 hours ago

Fans of NBC’s Hannibal--or fannibals, as they call themselves--came out in force at Comic-Con to support the dark, artsy drama, wearing flower crowns, black stag costumes and masks of the characters’ faces. Creator Bryan Fuller rewarded them with some juicy morsels about what (or who) his team of writers are cooking up for Season 3, including some new characters directly from the Thomas Harris novels on which the series is based. Moderated by British TV host Jonathan Ross, the panel kicked off with a montage of footage from the past season, including scenes the gut-wrenching finale, which left the fates of many of the characters up in the air. Cast members Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price) and Caroline Dhavernas (Alana Bloom) joined Fuller, director David Slade and executive producers Steven Lightfoot and Martha De Laurentiis on stage. We’ll serve up all the highlights from the panel after the jump. »

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer and Comic-Con Panel Recap: Cast and Producers Tease “Spectacular Scope”

8 hours ago

With Breaking Bad over and the second half of Mad Men’s final season poised to wrap up next spring, AMC has struggled a bit to find original programming to match its early successes.  That said, one new show hit really, really, really big.  Entering its fifth season this fall, The Walking Dead is not only a ratings juggernaut on cable television, it also gives network favorites like The Big Bang Theory a run for their money in terms of viewership.  Despite a sort of revolving door of showrunners and behind-the-scenes skirmishes, the ratings have continued to grow and its commercial popularity remains higher than ever.  With a spinoff series in the works as well, The Walking Dead franchise is likely to keep AMC afloat for quite some time. As they do every year, much of The Walking Dead cast (yes, even Norman Reedus) and executive producers Scott M. Gimple, »

9 hours ago

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 may not have a Hall H panel, but Lionsgate certainly went all out ensuring the film still had a presence at San Diego Comic-Con this year.  In conjunction with Samsung, Lionsgate set up the The Capitol Gallery at the Samsung Galaxy Experience right inside the Hard Rock Hotel’s Lounge 207. It’s a small space, but there’s a lot going on it.  You can grab something to eat at Peeta’s Bakery, take a picture with the Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) holograms, a Peacekeeper and some Capitol citizens as well.  There’s also t-shirt making, a quiz that tells you which District you belong in, a booth where you can etch your name into a Samsung Galaxy case and more.  But that’s not even the best of it; on the second floor of the Hard Rock, there’s also »
