Marvel Studios Countdown: Everything You Need to Know About Marvel Movies at Sdcc

5 hours ago

News from Marvel’s panel in San Diego was hitting the internet faster than we could hit refresh. We got you covered on the television side, and now in one handy-dandy post is the rest - all of the movie news, casting, and announcements that Marvel dropped last week. Hopefully, this will keep you daydreaming until Marvel’s next big bombshells. Marvel Studios Has All New Fanfare! Instead of playing up the brand name alone, Marvel has tinkered with their studio intro credit to focus on their characters. The original fanfare, composed by Brian Tyler, has been replaced by a new composition from Michael Giacchino (Star Trek, Up). While the new intro works fine, the long-running one focused on the rustling flips of comic book pages and glimpses of comics that reminded...

'Ghostbusters' Director Paul Feig Will Produce 'Supermodel Snowpocalypse'

6 hours ago

Paul Feig has been weathering the storm of Ghostbusters fandom ire this year, and now he's about to take on a different sort of survival story involving women. This time the elements will be depicted on screen rather than felt externally, as the project is an adaptation of a true story about fashion models trapped in a blizzard in Chile in 1977.  When you see the title Supermodel Snowpocalypse, you may think of a cheap horror movie filled with bikinis and blood splattered over fresh white powder (either sort). Actually, it's just a fascinating disaster drama where a young Jerry Hall (pictured below in Batman) and others involved with a Neiman Marcus fur catalog shoot became stranded for days.  There actually are both sorts of white powder in...

Watch: The Director of 'Criminal' Is In Awe of His Accidental 'JFK' Reunion

8 hours ago

If you've never seen JFK before, watching it will probably blow your mind a little bit. Not because of its swirling conspiracy theories (it also doesn't matter if you believe any of it-- the drama of it all is simply fantastic), but because its cast is simply unbelievable. You basically can't go 10 minutes of watching JFK without going, "Wait, this person is in this, too?!" And that's saying something considering JFK is approximately 10,000 hours long. It is an all time great cast. The JFK cast is also huge, which is why it's understandable that director Ariel Vromen didn't even realize he had cast a JFK reunion when he was putting together his own twisty thriller, Criminal. Kevin Costner stars as an inmate implanted with a CIA agent's...

Kiersey ('Dope') Clemons Confirmed to Star in 'The Flash'

13 hours ago

Earlier this month, we heard that Kiersey Clemons was the top choice for the female lead in The Flash. Ezra Miller has already been glimpsed as the speedy superhero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will have a more prominent role in Justice League, as indicated by the first trailer. Now the casting of Clemons has been confirmed by Variety. The trade publication says that her deal has been closed and it is "likely" that she will be playing Iris West, a journalist and friend of Barry Allen, also known as the Flash.

Movie News: Multiple Han Solo Spin-off Movies Rumored; Watch Thrilling New 'Ben-Hur' Trailer

14 hours ago

Star Wars: Alden Ehrenreich (above) has been confirmed to star as young Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars spin-off adventure. Now an unconfirmed rumor claims that Ehrenreich has been signed to a three-picture deal, opening up possibilities for further adventures if the first movie is successful. Of course, it's not unusual nowadays for stars to have multiple-picture deals for prospective franchise entries, but we'll wait to see what happens. The untitled Han Solo movie is set for release on May 25, 2018. [NY Daily News]   Moana: We've known for a while that Dwayne Johnson is voicing a lead role in Disney's Moana, opposite young newcomer Auli'i Cravolho as the titular character.

25 July 2016 9:00 PM, PDT

Marvel may have owned San Diego Comic-Con just with the sheer number of trailers and announcements for their upcoming live-action slate.

'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Officially Reveals Main Character Identities

25 July 2016 6:00 PM, PDT

We've known for months that Tom Holland is playing the title superhero and his secret identity, Peter Parker, in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but the rest of the main cast haven't been publicly assigned roles until now. Strangely, their characters weren't revealed during Saturday's Marvel panel at Comic-Con. Instead, director Jon Watts named each later during a video interview with Entertainment Weekly. He stuck with only first names, but here's what we know about them, officially and unofficially:  Zendaya is "Michele," probably Michele Gonzales, a love interest for Parker. Tony Revolori is "Flash," as in Flash Thompson, a jock and bully of Parker seen in past Spider-Man movies. He was most notably played by Joe Manganiello...

Watch Teaser Trailers for 'Trainspotting 2' and 'Bad Santa 2'

25 July 2016 4:30 PM, PDT

They're somewhat miserable and disheveled and most likely drunk or stoned, but they're so lovable and memorable that their long-awaited sequels are finally on the way.  That can be used to describe both Trainspotting 2 and Bad Santa 2 -- two follow-ups over a decade in the making (and in the case of Trainspotting 2, over two decades). Both sequels released teaser trailers this week, serving us reminders that they may be older (and maybe wiser), but the look, feel and attitude of their predecessors are still alive and well. Check 'em out below:   Bad Santa 2 Release: November 23 Directed by Mark Waters   Trainspotting 2 Release: February 10, 2017 Directed by Danny Boyle   Not much is known about either movie, save for...

'Star Wars' Buzz: Watch Young Han Solo Auditions

25 July 2016 3:00 PM, PDT

Recently at Star Wars Celebration, Alden Ehrenreich was officially confirmed to be the new Han Solo in a forthcoming spin-off movie. We learned that he was the first person to audition, though we know that many other people were considered for the role, including Charlie Cox (TV's Daredevil), Miles Teller (War Dogs) and Dave Franco (Now You See Me 2), who have all spoken about the audition process.  Late night television host Conan O'Brien has now revealed a brand new video, purporting to be "Young Han Solo Audition Tapes." Watch it below.   The first actor featured is Bill Hader, who was an instrumental part of the process to give voice to Bb-8, the rolling droid introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Clearly, his vocal abilities are quite...

Saturday is typically the day for all of the major movie studios at Comic-Con International to unveil their most-anticipated upcoming projects, and that trend continued this year with a pretty long list of projects and cast members being introduced, re-introduced, and otherwise hyped-up in a big way.

But that wasn't the only cool news coming out of the convention, of course. Here are some other things you might have missed amid all of the Marvel and WB superhero movie buzz:   Hulk Goes Gladiator With Thor: Ragnarok Props We got a few...
