Welcome to Comic-Con 2015: Check out 25 Pictures from the Convention Center

5 hours ago

The Collider team has arrived in San Diego for Comic-Con 2015. The weather is lovely, and the marketing is plentiful. We’re currently gearing up to overload you with tons of Comic-Con coverage, but it’s still Tuesday and there’s some quiet before the storm. The teeming masses have yet to swarm the Gaslamp District, which gave us some time to snap some photos in and around the convention center. The big thing to note is Sony’s absence. In past years, Sony Pictures has made the inside of the Convention Center their domain, but the studio is sitting this year out, so Amazon, NBC, HBO, WonderCon, The Walking Dead and Lego Dimensions have stepped in to take up the ad space. Check out the pictures below, and we'll have plenty of panel recaps, interviews, photos, and much more once the convention officially kicks off tomorrow.  Click here to keep »

Watch Magic Mike Xxl’s Joe Manganiello Play “Save or Kill”

5 hours ago

Now in theaters is Magic Mike Xxl. Gregory Jacobs takes over as director this time around, though Steven Soderbergh is still onboard as cinematographer, camera operator, and editor. Written by Reid Carolin, the story takes place three years after the events of Magic Mike, as Channing Tatum’s character has bowed out of the stripper game for good…or so he thinks. The rest of the Kings of Tampa decide to throw in the towel as well, but not before one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach with Mike sharing the spotlight. As the boys embark on a rowdy road trip, they renew old acquaintances and make new friends. As you can see in these fifty images, Jada Pinkett Smith plays a club owner, while Amber Heard, Donald Glover, Elizabeth Banks, and Andie MacDowell fill other supporting roles. The film also stars Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, »

Travis Cluff & Chris Lofing Discuss the Found Footage Inspiration for The Gallows

5 hours ago

Every article on found footage horror must open with a comment on the ubiquitous nature of the genre. They’re everywhere. They’re cheap. They’re profitable. Typically there’s a hint of derision, the thought that the filmmakers were too cheap to shoot an actual film and thus cobbled together a couple people off the street and cameras at the local Best Buy to shoot a movie and turn a profit. The thought that the genre is less an art form but more a commodity. At their very best though, found footage transcends such complaining, blurring fact and fiction, convincing viewers the illusions projected onto a screen are in fact reality. Cannibal HolocaustMan Bites DogThe Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity all deftly walked this tight rope between fiction & non. That there have been so many pale imitations in their wake shouldn’t reflect poorly on the genre or these films itself. »

Daredevil Season 2: Elodie Yung Cast as Elektra

8 hours ago

In the second major piece of casting for Marvel's Daredevil season two, French actress Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is set to play the popular antihero antihero Elektra Natchios, trained assassin and sometimes paramour of Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox). In their official release, Marvel describes Elektra as "a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle." The series made a vague reference to Elektra in the first season when Foggy (Elden Henson) recalled Matt's "smokin' hot" Greek girlfriend from college. Elektra - Daredevil's sometimes enemy, sometimes ally - was created by Frank Miller and first debuted in Daredevil No. 168 (1981). [caption id="attachment_482699" align="alignright" width="310"] Image via Marvel[/caption] Yung fills a critical role for the second season, joining Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher. Recent rumors indicate that The Punisher will act as the primary antagonist of Daredevil season two, »

Netflix Sets Premiere Dates for Beasts Of No Nation, Pee-wee, and More Original Films

8 hours ago

Many were understandably wary about Netflix getting into the original series game. The Golden Age of Television was alive and kicking, but could a streaming service really provide formidable competition in that arena? They could indeed, as House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black quickly took off, and now with a number of original shows under its belt, Netflix is expanding into original films—and it’s probably best not to underestimate them this time. Today, Netflix announced premiere dates for a number of highly anticipated original features. The child soldier drama Beasts of No Nation, from director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) and starring Idris Elba, was acquired by the streaming giant in March, and it will debut in all Netflix territories and in select theaters on October 16th of this year. The prestigious drama is getting a theatrical release in addition to the streaming release in order to qualify for awards recognition, »

Fox is, smartly, running “201 Days of The X-Files” campaign to count down its newly rebooted series.

Star Wars: Phil Lord and Chris Miller to Direct Han Solo Movie

10 hours ago

A young Han Solo movie is a bad idea. So who better to direct it than a filmmaking duo that has a track record of turning bad ideas into great movies? Lucasfilm has announced that The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller will take the helm of an untitled Star Wars Anthology film focusing on the adventures of young Han Solo, slated for release on May 25, 2018. The picture already has a screenplay by The Empire Strikes Back writer and Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-writer Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan, who wrote and directed the indie drama In the Land of Women. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy will produce, while Lawrence Kasdan will executive produce alongside Jason McGatlin, and Will Allegra is listed as co-producer. The official logline is as follows: The story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, »

Will Darth Vader Pop Up in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One?

10 hours ago

When news broke yesterday that this Friday’s Comic-Con panel for Star Wars: The Force Awakens won’t reveal a new trailer or any new footage at all, fans for the most part took it in stride. I argued that we don’t need to see any new footage—we’re all gonna see the movie regardless anyway, so a focus on the behind-the-scenes details of J.J. Abrams’ secretive production offers a potentially more revealing substitute. But the panel won’t be without its surprises, and if I were to guess, I’d say that producer/Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and Co. might bring out Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One director Gareth Edwards and possibly reveal the cast for this first “spinoff” film. We know the story of Rogue One follows a ragtag group of heroes working to steal the plans for the Death Star, in events that directly »

Harry Shearer Will Return to The Simpsons

11 hours ago

About a month ago, we reported that The Simpsons cast member Harry Shearer (voice of Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Smithers, Seymour Skinner, Otto and others) would not be returning to the series he’s been with for the last 26 years. But! Fans may now rejoice, because according to TV Line, Shearer has settled his dispute and signed a new contract to stay with the show for the foreseeable future (The Simpsons was recently renewed for 2 more seasons). During those public negotiations last month, executive producer Al Jean told the New York Times that Shearer was offered the same deal as his co-stars (including Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Dan Castellaneta, Yeardley Smith, and Hank Azaria), but declined to continue with the show (in other words … he wanted more money). On his Twitter, Shearer said he was looking forward to pursuing other work, and the plan at that time was to recast the characters. »

Batman V Superman: Hi-Res Images Revealed

13 hours ago

Here are new hi-res images from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, released by Warner Bros. For those who have already seen the lower resolution images from the upcoming Zack Snyder joint, this is all old news, but there's plenty of detail to be gleaned for those who are getting their first glimpse. First of all, there's Jesse Eisenberg's hair, and his gothic office, which could have doubled as a set from Hannibal. And then, of course, there's that image of Henry Cavill's Superman getting touched by face-painted onlookers as if he were the Lord himself, touching on one of Snyder's most favored themes, namely belief and religion. Beyond that, it's mostly steely Batman (Ben Affleck) imagery, with the notable exception of the image of Affleck's Bruce Wayne sidling up to Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, which teases a possible romantic subplot that might »

Deadpool: Ryan Reynolds Confirms He’ll Be at Comic-Con

13 hours ago

20th Century Fox has yet to officially confirm what it’s showing off at its San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday evening, but thanks to a little logic and that new Entertainment Weekly cover, it’s been pretty obvious that Deadpool will have a presence, and now Ryan Reynolds confirmed it. While talking to Reynolds for his upcoming release, Self/less, I asked him if he’s packed and ready to go to Comic-Con. Here’s what he said: [complextv contentid="F0aDEzdjoZXg1nQKRBPgx2tGjm9cvNF-" sitename="collider" playerid="26aa5f02d93f4c05a4546f6d5ecb59b7" adsetid="67a3ff9d3a842ae818bb9de1badc5b0" width="600" height="360" keywords=""] “Yeah, I am ready to go. I’m really excited about it actually. I’ve only been there once and it’s mayhem, but, you know, we’re coming in with a ton of goodwill and a truly great film so I’m really happy about that.” [caption id="attachment_442367" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via 20th Century Fox[/caption] As one might expect, Reynolds wouldn’t reveal any specifics about what they’ve got planned, but we »

Ghostbusters Reboot Casts Neil Casey As Lead Villain

13 hours ago

Paul Feig's hugely anticipated Ghostbusters reboot is in a bit of a casting frenzy. This week has already seen the additions of Andy Garcia and Michael K. Williams to the list of players, and Chris Hemsworth was confirmed to play a variation on the Annie Potts character in the first two films not long before that. Now, THR is reporting that funnyman Neil Casey has signed on to play Rowan, the major baddy in Feig's female-centric reimagining, which leads with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Not much else has been confirmed about the character or his intentions in the story, but Casey is a major talent, having worked on a variety of high-profile comedy gigs, including Broad City, Inside Amy Schumer, Veep, The Kroll Show, and the upcoming Fort Tilden. Like many of the stars, Casey got his start as an improv star, and his »

Stitchers: Showrunner Jeffrey Alan Schechter on the Sci-Fi Procedural

14 hours ago

The ABC Family sci-fi procedural drama Stitchers follows a young woman named Kirsten (Emma Ishta), who is recruited into a covert government agency to be “stitched” into the minds of the recently deceased, using their memories to investigate murders and decipher mysteries that will help solve crimes. Making up the rest of the team, headed by skilled covert operations veteran Maggie (Salli Richardson-Whitfield), is Cameron (Kyle Harris), a brilliant neuro-scientist, a socially immature bio-electrical engineer and communications technician named Linus (Ritesh Rajan) and Kirsten’s roommate, Camille (Allison Scagliotti), a gifted computer science grad student. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, showrunner Jeffrey Alan Schechter talked about how the series evolved, what made ABC Family a good fit, exactly what “stitching” is, the process for deciding Kirsten’s medical condition, designing the look of the memories, putting together this team of actors, coming up with relatable cases, the skin-tight catsuit, »

Game Of Thrones VFX Reel Breaks Down the Zombie Battle in “Hardhome”

14 hours ago

This season of Game of Thrones was perhaps the most controversial yet, and while it faltered badly as it struggled to find its own story away from George R.R. Martin’s novels, one episode—or one scene, rather—received near unanimous acclaim. “Hardhome” delivered on a promise fans had been waiting on since the first episode, which was confronting the Army of the Dead and seeing why they were such a formidable foe. It’s a terrific sequence, and you could really see the show’s budget up on screen for a set piece that easily could have been in any major motion picture. The effects in particular were top notch, and now Spanish VFX company El Ranchito released a new five-minute reel breaking down how they put together such an incredible action scene. I love these videos not just because they show the big stuff like creating a horde of CGI zombies, »

Fear The Walking Dead: Producers, Cast Talk L.A. Setting in New Featurette

14 hours ago

AMC has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Fear the Walking Dead, the impending spin-off of AMC's hugely popular The Walking Dead. Featuring executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, and Dave Erickson, who also serves as show runner, the 3-minute-plus clip focuses largely on the shooting of the series in Los Angeles and how the setting has effects the tone and imagery, while also differentiating the series from the Southern-set original. The producers, along with cast members Cliff Curtis and Kim Dickens, also accentuate how the show begins as more of a family drama nestled inside a genre piece, though, frankly, that could just as easily be said about The Walking Dead, which will premiere it's anticipated sixth season later this year. Meanwhile, Fear the Walking Dead is set to premiere on AMC this August. Watch the set video below: Here's the official synopsis for Fear the Walking Dead »
