Comic-Con 2014 Schedule for Saturday, July 26th Includes Mad Max, The Hobbit and Marvel Studios Presentations

5 hours ago

The Saturday schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2014 has been announced.  Warner Bros. is bringing an eclectic presentation with appearances made by the recently pushed Jupiter Ascending, the highly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road and Peter Jackson’s (likely) last foray into Middle Earth with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.  Legendary Pictures also has a presentation scheduled, but have declined to disclose which projects they’ll be presenting.  Laika Animation’s The Boxtrolls will also be making an appearance in the big hall followed by Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.   That’s all capped off by Marvel’s presentation later in the day followed by the big Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment Television panel which will feature a look at Constantine and the world premiere of Gotham among other shows. Outside of Hall H there’s cool TV stuff like The Blacklist and »

Top 5: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Guardians Of The Galaxy Set Visit, Gone Girl Trailer, Boyhood, Exodus: Gods And Kings Trailer

7 hours ago

New to Blu-ray this week is the fascinating documentary Jodorowsky's Dune. I caught the film earlier today and have no reservation calling it a must-see for sci-fi fans. Seeing Alejandro Jodorowsky passionately recant the events that led to his convincing the likes of Orson Welles and Salvador Dalí to join the pic is a joy in its own right, but illustrating the impact his unmade movie had on future science-fiction films is one of the doc's greatest achievements. The level of imagination, creativity, detail, and ambition that Jodorowsky and his visionary team put into their adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal sci-fi novel is staggering and a bit awe-inspiring when you consider its influence on future entries such as Star Wars, Alien, The Terminator, and more. Ahead of its time doesn't even begin to describe it. For better or worse, I'm not sure that the world is prepared for the »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Profile: Get to Know Rocket Raccoon

8 hours ago

Last, but certainly not least, in our character profiles for Marvel’s new film Guardians of the Galaxy, we look into the life and times of Rocket Raccoon.  Voiced by Bradley Cooper, Rocket is by far the strangest of the Guardians you’ll be seeing on screen, and that’s saying something when one of his teammates is a walking, talking tree.  This diminutive anthropomorphic gunslinger packs the most artillery of group, carrying guns that you would think would be difficult for a normal person to wield, let alone a raccoon.  Hit the jump for more info on what’s sure to be the breakout character of the film. If you missed the rest of our Guardians of the Galaxy character profiles, check out Star-Lord, Gamora, Groot, and Drax the Destroyer. The Strangest Origin of All Time Ok, bear with me on this one, because things are going to get weird. »

Eric Bana Talks Deliver Us From Evil, the Origins of the Script, Exorcism Movies, Why He Can’t do a TV Series in America, and More

9 hours ago

Now in theaters, is Deliver Us From Evil, a supernatural crime thriller that writer/director Scott Derrickson describes, “Serpico meets The Exorcist.”  While this may seem like the most unlikely pairing since Abbot and Costello first encountered The Wolfman, it’s actually a pretty good assessment of the film’s tone and style.  The Jerry Bruckheimer production tells the very-loosely-based-on-fact story of Ralph Sarchie, (Eric Bana) a hardboiled Police Sargent from the Bronx who, - with the help of a knife-wielding partner (Joel McHale) and the guidance of a Priest (Edgar Ramirez) carrying a dark past of his own - slowly discovers that the perp in his latest murder investigation just might be Satan himself.  As the walls close in and the bodies pile up, Sarchie and his cohorts race against time to find the culprit and protect his own family (Oliver Munn). Recently, Collider sat down with Eric Bana »

Friday Box Office: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Rises above the Competition

12 hours ago

The Apes rule Friday's box office as Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes dominates the competition.  That being said, its Friday debut is nowhere near that of this week's second place film's opening total; Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction, pulled in over $41 million in its debut just a couple of weeks ago.  These numbers appear to be par for the course of 2014's summer box office, which has been under-performing compared to recent years.  With praise raining down on Dawn from critics and fans alike, it's possible that positive word of mouth could help keep it atop the box office for the rest of the month.  Hit the jump for more on its chances, as well as the rest of Friday's box office report. Since Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was the only heavy hitter opening this weekend, it's no surprise that they're the tops. »

Patricia Arquette Talks Boyhood, Why the Film Was a Top Priority for Her, What Was Cut in the Editing Room, CSI: Cyber, and More

12 hours ago

From writer/director Richard Linklater, the indie drama Boyhood is a very unique and special project, in that it was filmed over 12 years with the same cast.  As you watch Mason (Ellar Coltrane) grow up, from age 6 to age 18, you will see him navigate all aspects of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations, and all of the moments in between.  The film also stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, as Mason’s parents, and Lorelei Linklater, as his sister Samantha. At the film’s press day, actress Patricia Arquette spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about the enormity of this project, why this film was such a huge priority for her, over the years, how powerful and moving it was to see the final film put together, how exciting it was to follow this character through so many ups and downs, that there were »

MTV’s Shannara Series Gets 10-Episode Order and Moves Forward with Jonathan Liebesman Directing and Acting as Executive Producer

13 hours ago

When last we spoke of the planned television adaptation of Terry Brooks' fantasy series Shannara, it was headed to MTV with Jon Favreau directing.  The good news is that the network has decided to go ahead with the series and has placed a 10-episode order.  The not-so-great news is that Favreau will no longer be directing due to scheduling issues, though he'll retain his executive producer credit.  Word has it that Jonathan Liebesman, the director of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, will be directing the first two episodes of the series and will act as executive producer.  Hit the jump for much more on this ambitious adaptation. EW reports that MTV has placed a series order for Shannara, which will have Liebesman taking over directing duties.  Set in our world, but thousands of years after the destruction of  civilization, Shannara is centered on the title family, whose »

Robert Zemeckis’ High-Wire Movie Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philipe Petit Retitled The Walk, Plus the First Image of Gordon-Levitt in Character

13 hours ago

Up until today, we've been referring to Robert Zemeckis' untitled 3D picture as To Reach the Clouds, since it was adapted from high-wire artist Philippe Petit's memoir of the same name.  Now, courtesy of social media and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Charlotte Le Bon, it looks like the film has been retitled The Walk.  Gordon-Levitt plays Petit, whose “artistic crime of the century” saw him and his co-conspirators sneak to the top of the World Trade Center in 1974 in order to make his famous attempt at crossing between the two towers. Also starring Ben Kingsley and James Badge Dale, The Walk is slated to open October 2, 2015.  Hit the jump to check out a behind-the-scenes image of Gordon-Levitt and Le Bon on set of The Walk.

Stan Lee Confirms Avengers: Age Of Ultron Cameo, Offers Advice for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

11 July 2014 7:16 PM, PDT

These days, comics legend Stan Lee might be known more for his Marvel movie cameos than his creation of the self-same heroes seen in the flesh on the big screen.  With the latest news that Lee just wrapped his cameo in Joss Whedon's upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, that status isn't likely to change.  This past year has been relatively slow for Lee's acting career, especially since the previous 13 years saw him cameo in 17 different movies.  And with Lee's 92nd birthday coming up at the end of this year, he shows little sign of slowing down.  He even reached across the comic book aisle to offer up some advice to Zack Snyder's DC superhero film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Hit the jump for that and more. As Digital Spy reports (via Cbm), Lee appeared at the London Film and ComicCon event in support of the expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

Better Call Saul Details Emerge on Cast, Cameos, and Timeline, Plus Two New Images

11 July 2014 6:30 PM, PDT

A few weeks ago we brought you the news that AMC's Breaking Bad spin-off prequel series Better Call Saul would be delayed until early 2015, but also earned an early second-season renewal.  Now that co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are at the Television Critics Association's press tour, they took a little side time from Breaking Bad talk to share some new details on the upcoming prequel series.  In addition to info on the show's cast, cameos, and timeline, we've also got two new images featuring star Bob Odenkirk.  Hit the jump to check it all out. Right out of the gates, as THR reports, Gilligan and Gould commented on the delay of Better Call Saul: "We could have made the deadline, but I am slow as mud," said Gilligan, admitting that he wanted to take his time on the show. "I still feel I'm very slow for television." "We »

Weta Digital’s Joe Letteri and Dan Lemmon Talk Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Technical Challenges, Deleted Scenes, and Future Projects

11 July 2014 6:24 PM, PDT

The visual effects company Weta Digital became a household name following their groundbreaking work on the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and they’ve worked on a number of other impressive films in the interim, ranging from District 9 to Avatar to Man of Steel.  With Rise of the Planet of the Apes, however, the company built upon the technology used to bring Gollum to life in Lord of the Rings to create phenomenal motion-capture apes.  That technology has advanced even further for the sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, with astounding results.  What Weta has accomplished in conjunction with the actors that played the Apes is a huge step forward for how technology can shape a movie.  I cannot wait to see where it goes from here. At the recent San Francisco press day I landed an exclusive video interview with senior visual effects supervisor Joe Letteri »

Roberto Orci “Not Officially Involved” in The Amazing Spider-man 3; Franchise Timeline in Limbo

11 July 2014 4:52 PM, PDT

When your movie brings in over $700 million worldwide, you'd think you're in pretty great shape, right?  Well, not when the movie is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and it ranks as the lowest box office in the franchise's five films to date.  In the movie-making world of big studio productions, that means changes are a comin'.  One of the early casualties might just be screenwriter/producer Roberto Orci, who penned the Spidey sequel with former writing partner Alex Kurtzman.  While the duo went their separate ways to work on their own projects, Orci was supposedly part of Sony's brain trust that would tackle not only The Amazing Spider-Man 3, but also franchise spin-offs Venom and The Sinister Six.  Now, the state of those future films also appears to be in disarray.  Hit the jump for more. A new report from IGN has Orci himself confirming that he's not involved with Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 3. »

Guillermo del Toro Doesn’t Think Hellboy 3 Will Happen; Gives Rundown of What It Might Have Been

11 July 2014 3:53 PM, PDT

Hellboy 3 is one of those projects that Guillermo del Toro fans just can’t let go of.  I don’t blame them.  To me, it’s an interesting property that is in many ways perfect for the filmmaker and I think he was just really finding his way into what the big screen version of it wanted to be (which is to say I think Hellboy 2 was at least twice as good as the original film).  But it doesn’t look like it’s in the cards. It's an unfortunate status he’s hinted at for a while, that he feels there just wasn't enough interest to justify the $150 million price tag the film would require. Steve did an epic interview with del Toro earlier in the week that covered stuff like the Pacific Rim Animated Series,  At the Mountains of Madness, Crimson Peak and The Strain along with »

If you don't know the characters of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy by now, well, all is forgiven since the film doesn't open until August 1st.  For those of you who want to know as much as you can about each of the renegade team members (short of, ya know, reading the comics), then the studio has you well supplied.  In the case of Zoe Saldana's character, Gamora, we've already seen her character description, poster, and  cast featurette.  We've also got our own introduction to Gamora to go along with Steve's on-set interview with Saldana.  If that's still not enough, then you'll be happy to hear that Marvel has released a new extended featurette in which Saldana talks about Gamora, accompanied by new footage from the film.

Comic-Con 2014 Schedule for Friday, July 25th Includes Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Horns

11 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT

The Friday schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2014 has been announced.  It’s actually pretty tame as far as Hall H goes, with Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead being the highlight panels of the day.  RADiUS-twc will make its Sdcc debut with Horns, in which Daniel Radcliffe will also make his first appearance at Comic-Con.  Outside of Hall H, there’s also plenty of TV panels to go around, with The Legend of Korra, Arrow, Archer, Bob’s Burgers, Bates Motel, and a special Marvel TV panel all taking place.  Fox has also blocked out two hours in Hall H, during which time it’s expected to preview The Maze Runner, Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Let’s Be Cops, the animated Book of Life, and Hitman: Agent 47.  There have also been rumblings that we might get a peek at The Fantastic Four, which would make sense.

True Detective: Colin Farrell in Talks for Season 2 of the Hit HBO Series; Taylor Kitsch Also in the Mix

11 July 2014 11:26 AM, PDT

True Detective season 2 may have finally begun casting its major roles as Colin Farrell is in talks to join the hit HBO series.  Additionally, Taylor Kitsch might be in the mix as well  Earlier today, we posted an interview with HBO's President of Programming Michael Lombardo and Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler, and Lombardo said he assumed "at least some announcements will be happening in the next week."  Since Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson got two juicy roles and earned nominations for Best Actor in a Drama Series, the show is presumably a hot ticket in Hollywood for actors and actresses looking for rich material in an acclaimed series that won't permanently take them away from acting in movies.  Yesterday, creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto revealed that there will be four central roles, and now Farrell presumably has one of them, and Kitsch is being eyed for a part as well. »

What Will We See at Marvel’s Comic-Con Panel This Year?

11 July 2014 11:07 AM, PDT

The madness of San Diego Comic-Con is upon us, and that means it’s speculation time.  Marvel is always a highlight of the event, and this morning the studio “announced” that its Hall H panel is set for Saturday from 5:30-6:30pm.  I say “announced” because the official description of the panel is as follows: “Marvel Studios President and Producer Kevin Feige and special guests will provide an inside look at the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.”  That’s incredibly vague, but not altogether surprising given that Marvel loves to keep things under wraps. However, even though no official Comic-Con announcements have been made, we actually have a pretty good idea of what the panel will entail.  Much more after the jump. With Guardians of the Galaxy being a focus of last year’s panel, and given the fact that it opens on August 1st, Marvel has already said »
