BioWare Teases New Information On Next Mass Effect At Comic-Con

1 hour ago

While the next title in the Mass Effect franchise is presumably years away, that didn’t stop BioWare from taking stage at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con in order to talk about the future of the series.

Similar to its debut at E3 2014, concrete details on the next Mass Effect have been hard to come by. Specific details such as a title, release date, what planets will be available for exploration or where this entry fits into the series’ canon were not discussed during the panel. Panel-goers did say that BioWare offered some brief details on the story, though, such as that it may be set during Shepard’s life-span and that some familiar faces could possibly return.

While the lack of actual information on the game may be disappointing, BioWare didn’t come to Comic-Con completely empty-handed, as the studio trotted out some smaller details that will excite fans. »

New Gotham Trailer Packed With Easter Eggs

2 hours ago

Fox’s upcoming series Gotham, which charts the struggles of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to clean up the streets of Gotham City long before Batman ever arrived on the scene, fared very well at Comic-Con this year. The pilot episode was screened in Hall H on Saturday night to major applause from attendees – in particular, Sean Pertwee’s edgier Alfred Pennyworth was a hit, and audiences also loved Gordon’s action heroics.

Now, a new trailer for the series has arrived, including teases for Oswald Cobblepot’s (Robin Lord Taylor) transformation into the villainous Penguin and a better look at the fateful night in Crime Alley when young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) lost his parents to an armed mugger. There’s a lot of other exciting stuff on display in this trailer, including some cool lines from Gordon, glimpses of Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and more of the gangster »

August’s Xbox Live Games With Gold Have Been Revealed

2 hours ago

Thanks to Major Nelson, we now know which Xbox One and Xbox 360 games will be free-to-download between August first and thirty-first, through Games With Gold.

From August first to fifteenth, Xbox 360 users will be able to download dirtbike racer Motocross Madness at no cost. Then, between the sixteenth and the thirty-first, the freebie will switch from that to former Game of the Year winner Dishonored.

Xbox One early adopters, on the other hand, will be able to download both on-rails shooter Crimson Dragon and space shooter Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut. Both games will be free from the beginning of August until its final calendar day.

As you’ll notice, August will mark the first time that the Games With Gold promotion will offer two “new” Xbox One games, free of charge. It’s something that Microsoft’s current-gen supporters will certainly appreciate, and we hope that it’ll »

Locke & Key Being Planned As Trilogy

2 hours ago

Comic-Con is a wonderful place, one where exciting scoops can emerge from unexpected places. Attendees at the panel for Alexandre Aja’s upcoming Horns, a Daniel Radcliffe-led horror comedy about a young man trying to solve his girlfriend’s murder (which looks amazing by the way), were treated to plenty of information about that project, but one well-placed question led to an update about an entirely different but also promising project – Universal’s comic adaptation Locke & Key.

Joe Hill, the comic-book artist whose novel served as the inspiration for Horns, delivered the news, confirming that the long-in-development project will in fact be a trilogy and is currently taking shape at Universal Pictures. Albert Torres, the screenwriter of Henry Poole is Here, the upcoming Akira remake and an announced live-action version of Ben 10, has been tapped to adapt the L0cke & Key comic-book series, which Hill co-wrote with Gabriel Rodriguez. »

George Miller Reveals Mad Max: Fury Road Sequel Script Already Written

3 hours ago

One of the movies that departed Comic-Con with the most wind in its sails this year was definitely Mad Max: Fury Road, which debuted a first trailer to widespread acclaim from fans of the dystopian franchise. And though we have a while to wait until the film, which stars Tom Hardy as Max and Charlize Theron as a new character named Furiosa, hits theaters next summer, recent comments by George Miller suggest that Fury Road will almost certainly lead in to even more Mad Max madness.

During the Comic-Con press conference, Miller revealed that he has already begun putting together sequels to Fury Road:

“In order to tell this story, we came up with two others. We’ve written the screenplay of one and the novelization of another, but it’s a very rough novel. We kept working on them while we were working on other things.”

That’s tremendously »

Bungie Responds To Fan Concerns Over World Variety Within Destiny

3 hours ago

In the wake of the generally well-received beta, Bungie has responded to fan concerns over the size and scope of Destiny’s world, after it emerged that each in-game planet will only contain one explorable location.

Though the studio hadn’t confirmed the number of environments up to this point, many users expected each stellar body to boast a variety of playable areas. However, during a recent Twitch stream, the studio’s community manager David Dague confirmed that this was not the case.

“Yeah, we’re calling them destinations,” Dague explained. “You go to Mars, you go to the Moon, you’ve got Venus, and you’ve got Earth.”

Dague also went on to outline the parameters of Destiny’s universe, which will incorporate co-operative and competitive play across those four aforementioned settings. So, in the case of our own home planet, players who venture toward Earth will only be »

New Teaser Trailer For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

8 hours ago

It cannot be denied that The Hunger Games movie franchise is a cinematic phenomenon. While the source book series by Suzanne Collins was an international success, the film versions have routinely been box office juggernauts – catapulting star Jennifer Lawrence to iconic status, and opening the floodgates for a wave of ‘Young Adult’ literary adaptations that shows no sign of abating. Now, having caught our collective breath after the second instalment was released in 2013, the promotional campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is beginning to gather momentum, not least with this new teaser trailer.

Entitled Our Leader The Mockingjay, the minute-long preview gives the concentrated, pared down premise of the piece – the rebellion needs Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) as its leader. There are some great shots, suggesting the continuation of the epic feel of the franchise as a whole, and we catch sight of supporting cast members, including Natalie Dormer »

Constantine Showrunner Talks Casting, Smoking And Papa Midnite

9 hours ago

It’s been a busy weekend for comic book fans, thanks to the annual San Diego Comic-Con. Traditionally an opportunity for exclusive sneak-peeks, previews and premieres, Warner Bros unveiled its new DC television properties – due for broadcast in October – including the series premiere of Constantine.

Based on the dark and gruesome Hellblazer comic book series, the show features deadpan and cynical occult detective John Constantine (Matt Ryan), battling forces of darkness that most people can’t see. In the pilot, Constantine comes to the rescue of a young woman named Liv (played by Lucy Griffiths), who has psychic abilities and finds herself the target of evil entities. While the overall reaction to the pilot seems to have been ‘It’s good, but with room for improvement’, the creative team behind the project already began to making adjustments – having swiftly dropped that initial female character, to bring in an alternative feminine »

Amazing Deadpool Movie Test Footage Leaks Online

13 hours ago

Hey, you! Whatever you’re doing right now, stop immediately and check out the leaked test footage for Tim Miller’s shelved Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds. While it’s an animated bit showcasing the tone and excitement of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s solo film for everyone’s favorite chimichanga-loving comic book hero, the footage is an absolute blast from start to finish, honing in on everything that makes this mercenary such a beloved character. Please, take a look at the footage below, and then let’s discuss why Hollywood needs to act on this property right now!

If you know anything about the character Deadpool, than you understand how mightily Ryan Reynolds was wasted throughout most of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. While Reynolds was a bit of perfect casting, it’s writers David Benioff and Skip Woods who made the sacrilegious mistake of taking a character known as »

Comic-Con: Guillermo del Toro Unveils Crimson Peak Footage

15 hours ago

Few filmmakers have as much geek cred as Guillermo del Toro, who has brought us some of the most visually enchanting fantasy films in cinematic history. He’s the man who made us love the Antichrist with Hellboy, created the terrifying Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth, and who brought us giddily back to our childhood days of mashing together action figures with Pacific Rim (among other stunning accomplishments). So, it wasn’t exactly a shock when his Comic-Con panel in Hall H, showcasing del Toro’s upcoming Crimson Peak, was received with wild excitement from attendees.

Before showing off some material from the horror flick, which is 18 months away from release still, del Toro told fans that the film is “a gothic romance” and, thanks to Legendary, will be R-rated, violent and beautiful. The crowd liked that promise very much. They liked what he had to show even more. »

Wesley Snipes Talks Blade 4

15 hours ago

It’s been almost a decade since Blade: Trinity put a stake through heart of Welsey Snipe’s badass vampire killer, effectively halting future franchise installments, but that doesn’t mean Snipes is happy with leaving the role dead and buried. Blade was one of the first big comic book adaptations to kickstart the whole superhero genre, along with the massively successful X-Men films, and now that Snipes has cleared up most of his personal problems, it seems like a perfect time to start talking about a possible Blade 4.

Sure, Snipes is a modest 51 years old as of now, looking a little more aged than the comic book form of Blade, but he’s got a damn fine pitch that would please pretty much every horror fan if it were to become a reality. While talking to EW about the possibility of another Blade film, he revealed the following story »

The Strain Review: “Gone Smooth” (Season 1, Episode 3)

15 hours ago

Transformation (or perhaps more aptly, mutation) is again the theme of this week’s episode of The Strain, and I mean that both in terms of the major characters and the rather unsightly changes the plane survivors are undergoing. This show isn’t afraid to make its vampires really gross, and the body horror aspects of “Gone Smooth” are what will stick with me the most about it. But there’s more to the episode than just those physical changes – in its third installment, The Strain still feels like it’s shifting as a show, figuring out what it wants to be. Unfortunately, there’s more Scooby Doo-esque dialogue and silly acting in “Gone Smooth” than the last two installments combined, but I’m willing to forgive The Strain that trespass for what it still offers – campy/creepy scares, top-notch visual effects and an ambitious storyline that so far »

The Leftovers Review: “Gladys” (Season 1, Episode 5)

16 hours ago

Would Damon Lindelof be a member of the Guilty Remnant? Based on “Gladys,” the misery-loving latest episode of his series The Leftovers, I’d have to say yes. But what is he trying to tell us? That’s as unclear as the motivations of the show’s actual Gr members. The Leftovers quickly reached a point of diminishing returns after its enigmatic and atmosphere-heavy pilot, and I know I wouldn’t still be watching if I didn’t have to review the show week after week. And after watching “Gladys,” I have to question whether The Leftovers actually has any purpose other than depressing the hell out of its viewers. The show’s big mystery may never be answered, its characters are all frustrating a-holes and its bleakness appears to be the main attraction. And I’m feeling more than a little fed up with it all.

Marvel’s Daredevil Series Will Air On Netflix In May 2015

17 hours ago

To close out San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel held one final panel devoted to the 75th anniversary of Marvel Comics and the 50th anniversary of Daredevil. Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada was on hand alongside writers Mark Waid and Dan Slott, and before long talked turned toward the upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix (which, to the chagrin of fans, did not have a presence during Marvel’s TV panel earlier in the week).

Quesada spoke briefly about how the series is currently filming in New York City, and revealed that it is expected to arrive in May 2015, the same month as a little Marvel film you may have heard of called Avengers: Age of Ultron

Quesada didn’t talk in detail about the series, but did say that he was excited to see the Man Without Fear team up with the likes of Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage »

Robert Rodriguez Teases Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Red Band Trailer, Frank Miller Teases Sin City 3

18 hours ago

With Sin City: A Dame To Kill For rapidly approaching it’s August 22nd release date, much of the cast and crew were on hand at this year’s San Diego Comic Con to drum up excitement for the graphic novel adaptation. Sin City redefined the way we look at pulpy graphic adaptations, replicating the gritty black and white nature of Frank Miller’s source material, and it looks like we’ll be getting an upped dosage of stylistic violence in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s co-directed sequel. In an effort to get people ready for the coming Red Band trailer release, Comic Con attendees were gifted a teaser trailer for the full Red Band trailer itself – yes, a teaser For a trailer. Here, take a look courtesy of Comic Book Movie:

Alright, I’ll admit even those fifteen seconds got my blood going a little bit, and I »

At Comic-Con, Quentin Tarantino Confirms The Hateful Eight For 2015

18 hours ago

Would any Comic-Con celebrating the best, brightest and downright coolest in cinema be complete without that most audacious of filmmakers himself, Quentin Tarantino? I think not. So, it was truly thrilling to hear about the Pulp Fiction director taking the stage this year at the panel for Dynamite Comics’ upcoming Django Unchained-Zorro comic.

However, that intriguing venture was by no means the most exciting part of Tarantino’s appearance this year. After a fan pressed him about his troubled Western The Hateful Eight, the filmmaker confirmed that the film would be moving forward and rolling cameras in 2015. In response, the room erupted in deafening cheers.

The Hateful Eight got off to a strong start earlier this year, with Tarantino voicing a great deal of excitement for the movie and putting together a cast that included Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth. However, an early draft of the script »
