TNT Takes San Diego Comic-Con to the Airport

17 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comic-Con continues to find new ways to spread out from the San Diego Convention Center.

Having already flowed into the lawn outside and into area hotels, the airport is the next takeover target for Hollywood’s TV networks and studios turning to the fanfest each year to promote their newest projects.

TNT will plaster the San Diego Intl Airport’s baggage claim carousels, escalators and skyway bridges with images and other messaging for its upcoming series “Legends,” starring Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino (see below). Show premieres Aug. 13.

From there, the marketing campaign will also appear around the city’s Gaslamp Quarter, including a giant billboard covering the side of the Marriott Hotel, next to the convention center.

Naturally, there’s also a social media component. The network is encouraging fans of actor Sean Bean to use the hashtag #DontKillSeanBean in social media postings about the show. »

‘Wild’ Trailer: Reese Witherspoon Embarks on a Long Journey

10 July 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

If The Lord of the Rings trilogy taught us anything, it’s that watching people walk through the wilderness for hours on end can make for surprisingly good entertainment (it helps if there are epic battles along the way).  If 127 Hours taught us anything, it’s that adding a true story element to a wilderness story also helps to add an extra layer of interest.

Reese Witherspoon is the next intrepid explorer to make a long journey with a big backpack in Wild, an adaptation of the memoir by Cheryl Strayed. Recently divorced and still reeling from the death of her mother four years previously, Cheryl decided to trek 1,100 miles alone across the Pacific Crest Trail, which spans nine mountain ranges between Mexico and Canada, in order to save herself from herself.

The new trailer for Wild reveals just how much Cheryl has ...

First Look at Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes in 'Mr. Holmes'

9 July 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ian McKellen has had no shortage of iconic roles throughout his storied career, from Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past to Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. It's possible that the actor may have found a way to top all of those roles with his next project Mr. Holmes, where he plays a 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes. Earlier today, the actor sent out the first photo from this drama to his Twitter followers, which you can take a look at below.

Over 70 actors have previously played Sherlock Holmes. Now he's 93 years old and it's my turn. #MrHolmespic.twitter.com/B9HkUgfkCv

Instant Debate: How to Make Indiana Jones 5 Work

9 July 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Many of you may have heard by now, the rumors floating around about Robert Pattinson being considered to play Dr. Jones in some sort of new Indiana Jones reboot for Disney/Lucasfilm. While our own sources have raised some eyebrows at the idea, this got our staff to discussing how Disney should move forward with the Indiana Jones franchise, and potentially reboot it. Come inside to see our contributors’ thoughts on the subject and add in your own!

First, let’s talk about this rumor. Over the last couple months, a pair of names have been associated with a new take on Indiana Jones, to lead the franchise into a new generation. The first rumor pegged Bradley Cooper as a possibility, and the latest says that Robert Pattinson may be taking over. Neither of these have jived with previous rumors that Harrison Ford desperately wants to do another Indiana Jones film, »

'Hunger Games,' 'Game of Thrones' among mtvU's Fandom of the Year nominees

9 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Forget the World Cup’s USA-Portugal-Ghana-Germany nightmare. A competition category that pits fans of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Breaking Bad, and Teen Wolf against each other is a real “Group of Death”—and that’s just the TV Dramas.

After announcing the nominees for its Fandom awards last month (including everything from best ship to best new fandom), mtvU has upped the ante today to announce the contenders for the big prize: Fandom of the Year.

Culled from four categories (Movies, TV Dramas, TV Comedies, and Animation), the 32 nominees will duke it out through online voting on the network’s website. »

Andy Serkis on 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' the Downside of Motion Capture, and Scarring His Kids for Life

8 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," Caesar (Andy Serkis) led his fellow imprisoned apes to freedom. "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," set 10 years later, finds Caesar the leader of an evolving community of apes while the human population is in ruins thanks to the devastating "Simian Flu." A chance encounter between humans and apes threatens to destroy the peace for both species in this sequel, which opens Friday.

Moviefone traveled to San Francisco to chat with Serkis about why acting in a unitard is no different from any other costume, his role model for Caesar, and which of his films scarred his children for life.

Moviefone: Between this, "King Kong," and" The Lord of The Rings," you've kind of become the Motion Capture King.

Andy Serkis: I don't think I am, actually. I'm just an actor who's around at a time when performance capture is evolving. »

Watch: ‘The Lord of the Rings’ is wrong, says science

7 July 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Today in No Fun Police news, The Lord of the Rings may be, wait for it, scientifically inaccurate, according to a popular YouTube channel called MinutePhysics.

In their video “How Far Can Legolas See?” the video pulls the Mythbusters trick of challenging and testing one of the book’s fantastical moments, in which Legolas claims he can see an approaching army up to several leagues away and detect that the army’s leader is very tall.

This, based on math and physics, is wrong. It explains that even if Legolas could see in Uv light by the power of magic, the very focused eyesight would cause any object to look blurry and as big as three meters tall, as evidenced by what happens when you try to read a book with a piece of paper partially obscuring your eyesight. Happens to me all the time.

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Andy Serkis!

7 July 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Andy Serkis is a marvel. No other actor has managed to create such indelible characters with the help of motion capture. Whether it is Gollum in The Lord Of The Rings or the iconic King Kong, he continues to offer wonderful and nuanced work as the effects improve. In Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, the actor began his journey as Caesar. With the sequel, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, he once again gives a remarkable performance which may stand out as one of the best of the year. When I »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Teaser Trailer Coming Soon; Peter Jackson Says to Expect Full Trailer in October

7 July 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While we will likely be able to enjoy a teaser trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies relatively soon (like, probably Comic-Con soon), we won't get a look at the full trailer until around October.  That's still plenty of weeks ahead of the film's December 17th release date, but too late to attach it to this summer's big blockbuster films.  While that's been the case for the last two trailers, Jackson was pretty forward about the reason we haven't seen anything from the final film of the franchise just yet. Hit the jump for his explanation and for more on The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Jackson himself broke the news via his Facebook page: (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all. »

The One Thing Andy Serkis Could Do In Dawn Of Apes That He Couldn't Do In Rise

How on Earth does Andy Serkis not have an Oscar yet? Chalk it up to the limiting criteria of the Academy that they have not recognized the incredible work this British thespian has been doing in the realm of motion-capture performance in sagas ranging from The Lord of the Rings films to this weekend.s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It is for the release of Matt Reeves. upcoming movie . a sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes -- that I was able to sit across from Andy Serkis and talk to him about the cutting-edge technology that allows him to turn into Caesar, an intelligent ape leader who is doing everything in his power to prevent war with some distrusting humans (led by Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke).

5 Reasons You've Absolutely Got to Watch FX's The Strain

7 July 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There’s a hint of trepidation any time a new series lands on the small screen. Censorship limitations, fiscal restrictions and an abundance of writers and directors can easily serve as points of distraction for promising concepts.

Sometimes there are just too many chiefs and not enough Indians, and when you’ve got too many chiefs attempting to hold rule over a tribe with the barest of necessities, things can head south in an instant. That’s the law of the land.

Ultimately, the legitimately scintillating concepts tend to succeed, assuming the funds are there to capitalize on and the featuring network is lenient enough to truly push the envelope, if the idea in question calls for the courageous, that is.

FX’s new monster, “The Strain” (which premieres on July 13th), calls for the courageous, unquestionably. A brilliant interpretation of one of history’s most-beloved classics (more on that, »

10 Great Fireworks Scenes from Movies

4 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Happy 4th of July everyone! It's not hard to imagine that my favorite part about this holiday is the fireworks! I love lighting them up and watching them go off. I even attempted to make my own at one point… I'll never do that again. As a tribute to this patriotic American holiday celebrating our independence, I've put together a top 10 list of great fireworks scenes from the movies. 

The Sandlot

This is by far one of the most American 4th of July scenes ever put on film. You've got a group of kids playing baseball in the 1950s on the 4th of July. 

An American Tail

Behold, the Giant Mouse of Minsk! This scene is both thrilling and incredibly scary. It's such a cool fireworks scene though.

To Catch a Thief

Alfred Hitchcock was a filmmaking genius, and this scene features fireworks going on in the background as Cary Grant »

4th of July TV marathons: Chomp down on 'The Walking Dead,' fortify with 'The Twilight Zone'

4 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The weekend of July 4th is a time for doing American things: grilling, watching fireworks, ignoring zoning restrictions and setting off your own fireworks. But shenanigans are tiring, you know? The sun will give you a sunburn. The grill will make your clothes smell like smoke. We at EW much prefer to test our endurance in other ways, mostly by watching TV.

There’s a whole set of marathons on for the weekend, some highly publicized (can you make it through three straight days of The Walking Dead?), some obscure and ready for love (a marathon of the animated Transformers series, »

The Motion-Capture Performances of Andy Serkis

3 July 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

These days, it's common for actors to wear skintight outfits covered with tracking balls and portray the motions of characters who will be digitally created later. However, there's one man who has spent the past decade pioneering this craft: Andy Serkis. From The Lord of the Rings to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, no actor has been more heavily involved in making "mo-cap" an art form. It's time to run through Serkis' greatest hits and explore why he's the best.   Gollum in The Lord of the Rings (2003) This is where it all began. Andy Serkis was originally hired to voice the all-cgi Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but when actors Elijah Wood and Sean Astin needed someone to interact with on set, Serkis stepped in and his career as a...

Serkis Appearing In 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'?

3 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jeez!!

The Lord of The Rings/The Hobbit

Planet of The Apes 

Star Wars

And now...

Avengers?!

It would appear that Andy Serkis wants the record for "Craziest-Looking Residual Checks." And he's well on his way. 

In a chat with Variety, Serkis revealed that not only is his motion-capture company The Imaginarium working closely with Mark Ruffalo to create the best Hulk yet but that he is also set to appear in the film. He wouldn't say if it was in the flesh, or via another of his vintage mo-cap performances, though. 

"The Imaginarium is the performance capture consultant, and I’m playing a role," he tells Variety. Of course, this being Marvel, there's little else he can reveal but he did add, "I’m not at liberty to mention. But it’s all the same to me. I’ve never drawn a distinction when playing a role, whether it »

Review: Cabin Fever: Patient Zero

3 July 2014 2:55 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

It used to be when a sequel to a successful genre film went the somewhat direct to video route, that it was a taboo of sorts, a signifying mark of it not being such a great film. It was definitely easy to feel that way, given so many sequels that didn’t quite offer anything to offer horror fans, aside from a familiar name. While that stigma has somewhat (if not completely) faded away with how wildly successful genre films have become with only a small limited theatrical release, followed by Redbox, iTunes and DVD, films like Kaare Andrew’s Cabin Fever: Patient Zero helps further eradicate the undeserved labels that were once instantly placed on similarly marketed films, making up for a flawed (and greatly tampered with) second film in the series, with providing a fun and entertaining time.

Andy Serkis Talks Motion Capture In Star Wars: Episode VII

2 July 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Andy Serkis is the undeniable master of motion and performance-capture. His roles in films like The Lord of the Rings, King Kong, The Adventures of Tintin and Rise of the Planet of the Apes helped define the new art form, and his company, The Imaginarium, is the world’s premiere performance-capture studio. So, when he was announced as part of Star Wars: Episode VII‘s new cast, we wondered immediately if he would be taking his mo-cap talents to a galaxy far, far away.

In a new interview with Sci-Fi Now, Serkis spoke up about the motion-capture that will be used in Episode VII, and briefly mentioned his role in the highly anticipated film:

“It’s extraordinary. I grew up with Star Wars and was a massive fan of the original films. I never imagined in a million years that I’d be engaging with this. It’s just come about so organically. »

If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you might want to check out ABC's upcoming fantasy reality series, The Quest, which might just be the perfect TV distraction this summer. The show takes viewers to a mythical realm where 12 contestants are given the chance to experience Middle-earth and compete in epic battles. Video trailers have already given viewers a glimpse of the brain child of the producers of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the producers of The Amazing Race but a recently released promo takes a step further to explain what ABC's The Quest is really all about. »
