Peyton Reed and Edgar Wright exchanged 'some emails' about 'Ant-Man'

7 hours ago

Michael Douglas is having a rough day. In an interview at EW’s Comic-Con Hideout, the Ant-Man star confessed that he was experiencing gas and was “f–king melting.” No one said Comic-Con was easy.

Despite Douglas’ struggles, the cast was happy to tell EW as much as they could about the upcoming Marvel movie—which isn’t too much. But it did come to light that Evangeline Lilly is having a hard time playing dumb when people ask her about the movie and that Paul Rudd has a tie clip—just don’t ask him about it; he might get self-conscious. »

Quentin Tarantino says 'The Hateful Eight' is on the way after all

7 hours ago

Quentin Tarantino’s post-Civil War western The Hateful Eight will be a film after all.

After Gawker leaked pages from The Hateful Eight screenplay back in January, Tarantino filed a lawsuit against the media company and said he wouldn’t be turning the script into a movie because of the leak. He later amended that statement though, telling a crowd at a The Hateful Eight reading in April that he was actually working on new draft of the script. And Sunday, he announced at a Comic-Con panel that the movie is a go, Deadline reports.

At the time of the leak, »

'Mad Max: Fury Road' director George Miller wary of using 'too much CG'

10 hours ago

Director George Miller has quite the variety of movies under his belt: His film credits include the family-friendly Happy Feet and Babe: Pig in the City as well as the cruder Mad Max trilogy. Now, the Australian filmmaker is visiting Comic-Con for the very first time to promote the fourth in the Mad Max series, Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

Miller stopped by EW’s Comic-Con Hideout to explain why Mad Max: Fury Road is “basically a western on wheels,” his action movie inspirations, and why you won’t be seeing much CGI in his latest film. »

First 'Mad Max: Fury Road' trailer finds Tom Hardy in captivity

11 hours ago

Thirty years after the final film in the Mad Max trilogy came out, Max is back and madder than ever.

Tom Hardy plays Max in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road, a re-imagining of the original 1979 Mad Max that starred (and launched the career of) Mel Gibson. After the success of the first in the trilogy, director George Miller went on to make Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 1981 and then Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome in 1985 before hitting a wall in the development of a fourth film.

But Miller now has directing, producing, and writing duties on the latest film, »

Box office report: 'Lucy' slays 'Hercules' with $44 million debut

12 hours ago

Hercules’s muscles were no match for Lucy’s drug-enhanced brain at the box office this weekend. Audiences turned out in earnest to see the Scarlett Johansson thriller, which earned an expectation-shattering $44 million from 3,173 theaters in its first weekend.

Not only is it director Luc Besson’s biggest opening, Lucy is also a career high for Scarlett Johansson as a lead. Audiences for the original feature were evenly split between genders, 35 percent were under the age of 25, and 29 percent were Hispanic. But even though the EuropaCorp-produced, Universal-distributed project appealed to a wide demographic swath, those who did see the »

Marvel Studios: Comic-Con Live-Blog: 'Ant-Man,' 'Ultron,' and 'Guardians 2'

26 July 2014 5:47 PM, PDT

Ten minutes after the grand finale of Comic-Con is supposed to start in the 6,100-seat Hall H, a chant begins: “We want Marvel! We want Marvel! We want Marvel!”

They got what was coming to them.

The lights went down soon after, and the panel began with a reel of highlights from all the past Marvel movies, leading into a new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy (which comes out next Friday.) It ends with a long look at Josh Brolin as the cosmic villain Thanos in a throne that is free-floating in space.

Here's the trailer for 'Tusk', Kevin Smith's new horror movie

26 July 2014 4:07 PM, PDT

In Kevin Smith’s upcoming horror movie Tusk, Justin Long plays a podcaster (very millennial) who travels around the world interviewing interesting people. When he goes to

From the trailer, Smith seems to be playing it straight, albeit with the director’s trademark dialogue. So expect both genuine scares and maybe some laughs, too.

James Spader reveals why his 'Avengers 2' character hates the Avengers

26 July 2014 2:55 PM, PDT

Now that we know who Ultron is, it’s time to get into his head a little bit.

James Spader came by the EW Hideout at Comic-Con along with his co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans to talk about the big bad of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Spader talked about the character’s motivations with a calm that unnerved Chris Evans—if Ultron’s voice is anything like Spader’s here, the robot that comes to destroy us all next summer will probably convince us all that his evil plot is good for us.

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is not messing around

26 July 2014 1:41 PM, PDT

If you had to use one word to describe the first official photo of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, it would probably be ‘fierce.’ Another would be ‘warrior.’ Or ‘demigod.’ Although there’s no reason you couldn’t string them all together and say that Diana of Themyscira sure does look like one Fierce Warrior Demigod, because that is accurate too.

Director Zack Snyder tweeted out the photo this morning during the Warner Bros. movie panel at San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H Saturday morning.Fans got a glimpse at a brief bit of footage from Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, »

Warner Bros. thanks Hobbit fans, wows with 'Fury Road' footage

26 July 2014 12:58 PM, PDT

It may be superhero day this Saturday in Hall H with both Warner Bros., and it’s DC Comics going up against Marvel—but the winner of Saturday morning Comic-Con has to be J.R.R. Tolkien fans. They were treated to expert moderation by the one-and-only Stephen Colbert (a supreme Hobbit superfan), shown a delightful reel of outtakes from the six films set in Middle Earth (dominated by the singular Ian McKellen), and given a full panel of actors (including Oscar winner Cate Blanchett). Not to mention a new Hobbit teaser trailer.

But that’s what they should be receiving for »

Legendary brings King Kong, Mothra, and del Toro's ghosts to Comic-Con

26 July 2014 12:45 PM, PDT

After a sweltering few days in San Diego, Legendary Pictures offered up some chills in the form of Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, wedged in between the revelation of some Godzilla 2 monsters and footage teasing a new King Kong movie called Skull Island.

Crimson Peak

The 2015 gothic horror-romance Crimson Peak, which will star Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Charlie Hunnam, got a special showcase on Saturday—showing off both its ghosts and a cast of somewhat sinister mortals. “It’s a gothic romance. It’s R-rated. It has incredible beauty, but it’s also very violent, »

The 'Maze Runner' team explains why they run mazes

26 July 2014 11:28 AM, PDT

Though a film with the title The Maze Runner may seem self-explanatory, there are still plenty of questions that can be asked.  What are these mazes like? What do they want? Is running difficult? Have you ever run before? If you’re not careful, you can talk yourself into a maze if you think about it too much.

Not to worry though, the Maze Runner team avoided such perils when they came by the EW hangout at Comic-Con to talk about the upcoming film. Because they’re good at running mazes. »

Just don’t ask Colin Firth to tell you himself just how badass it is. He might have some trouble. »

One Republic's latest video is full of new footage from 'The Giver'

26 July 2014 10:24 AM, PDT

Pop band One Republic have a new song on The Giver soundtrack, and the preview video for it is chock full of footage from the film. The song, called “Ordinary Human,” is strangely bright and cheery when juxtaposed with footage from a movie about a society devoid of all emotions and feelings (but maybe they’re just being meta, man). If you never read the book in grade school, beware: The video is more or less a highlight reel of the entire plot and might be considered spoiler-y.

The Giver arrives in theaters August 15th, 2014. »

Samuel L. Jackson, Sofia Boutella on 'Kingsman' and a Nick Fury movie

26 July 2014 9:37 AM, PDT

Few actors have a history with Comic-Con as long as Samuel L. Jackson. A fixture of the convention ever since he played Mace Windu in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Jackson has come back year after year, usually with another comic-book role under his belt each time. This time around, it’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on a comic by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. Jackson swung by the EW Hideout with co-star Sofia Boutella to talk a bit about their villainous roles and why he wants to do a Nick Fury solo movie. Check it out below: »

Box-office update: 'Lucy' defeats 'Hercules' with $17.1 million Friday

26 July 2014 8:52 AM, PDT

Dwayne Johnson’s brawn was no match for Scarlett Johansson’s brain at the box office on Friday, as Johansson’s new action film Lucy took the top spot. With an estimated $17.1 million on Friday, Lucy may bring an unexpected boost to this year’s weak July box office and is now on track to pass its estimated $35 million opening, further cementing Johansson’s star power.

Though he definitely has a lot of power in his own way, Dwayne Johnson didn’t have enough strength as Hercules at the box office; Brett Ratner’s poorly reviewed adaptation of Steve Moore »

20th Century Fox Comic-Con panel: Colin Firth kicks butt in 'Kingsman'

26 July 2014 4:47 AM, PDT

20th Century Fox took control of Hall H for two hours on Friday to unveil some of their upcoming films. The big surprise? No talk of (or footage shown from) next summer’s Fantastic Four or of X-Men: Apocalypse. But there were plenty of other highlights:

- During the panel for September’s The Maze Runner, star Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf) accidentally revealed that a certain character dies in the film after he was asked what was the most difficult scene to shoot. “This is going horribly,” he (sorta) joked later. Fans also got a look at a new »

Critical Mass: The drug-fueled mayhem of 'Lucy' has a buzz

25 July 2014 1:23 PM, PDT

Luc Besson loves his lady warriors. Beginning with the original La Femme Nikita, and then in action movies like The Professional, The Fifth Element, and The Messenger, he’s introduced his own brand of memorable action heroines. Scarlett Johansson’s Lucy might be the most hardcore of the bunch. She goes from party girl to super-evolved sorceress when the experimental drug an Asian gangster has smuggled in her body spills into her bloodstream, raising her brain activity to 100 percent capacity. “Lucy is a thinly drawn character, just someone who needs to survive,” writes EW’s Jeff Labrecque. “But Johansson vividly »
