Comic-Con: Dexter’s Past Explored Through Animated Webisodes, John Lithgow’s Killer Instinct

  • Slash Film
Because almost everything in certain parts of Comic Con was already running late today, but not quite everything, I raced from the Avatar footage (impressive, incredibly detailed, still more cartoonish than I expected) to the Dexter panel, only to finally be allowed to enter the hall just as the Season Four trailer finished. So I didn't get to see the first footage of Dexter, Rita and their new son Harrison, nor the clips of John Lithgow as this season's 'killer of the year'. I did see an image from Dexter: Early Cuts, the animated webisodes that will detail the killer's early years, and a bit of footage from the video game soon to be released on the iPhone/iTouch platform. And even without seeing the trailer, I got quite a bit of information out of the panel discussion that followed. It's after the break, as are embeds of both

Mesrine: Killer Instinct gets UK trailer and theatrical release

Having picked up considerable praise at various festivals Mesrine: Killer Instinct is finally coming to Britain. Shot back to back with the second part (L’Ennemi Public No. 1), the first instalment of Jean-Francois Richet’s crime biography of Jacques Mesrine hits UK cinemas on 7th August:

Inspired by the life of France’s most notorious criminal, Mesrine: Killer Instinct charts the rise and fall of the often marvelled, yet utterly ruthless gangster Jacques Mesrine. The films follow the incredible series of hold ups, prison breaks, and kidnappings throughout the 60s and 70s.

A rather exciting new UK trailer can be found below the break. It certainly looks to be an energetic and suitably sexy French take on the gangster biography with Vincent Cassel’s commanding presence in the lead. Je suis vraiment excité.

Part 2 looks set to follow on the 28th August.
