We don't officially have a category for "swag", but this falls into that classification. As a big space nerd and sci-fi lover, I can't help but share this nifty bit of swag from Comic-Con that I picked up today. During the Paramount panel yesterday, where they surprised fans in Hall H by bringing out Interstellar director Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey (read our full recap of that panel), the studio handed out tickets to be redeemed for a "prize". That prize? The mission patch from Interstellar, for the "Endurance" Space Exploration mission. It's small piece of swag, it's nerdy, but it's also kind of awesome. In full below. Here's the mission patch that was handed as a prize for those who were at Paramount's Comic-Con panel. Recap our coverage of Interstellar at Comic-Con here, including quotes from Nolan and McConaughey. Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, »

Yesterday The Dark Knight Trilogy director Christopher Nolan appeared at the San Diego Comic-Con International for the very first time, appearing with Matthew McConaughuey during Paramount’s Hall H presentation to debut footage from the upcoming sci-fi Interstellar. While we don’t have the footage itself unfortunately, Nolan and McConaughey’s appearance has arrived online, and you can the full panel here…
Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
The film is set for release on November 7th, with a cast that also includes Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises), Jessica Chastain (The Help), Michael Caine (Inception), Mackenzie Foy (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn), Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games), Casey Affleck (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3), John Lithgow »

In what counted as the first genuine surprise of Comic-Con 2014, Interstellar star (and recent Oscar winner) Matthew McConaughey and director Christopher Nolan took to the stage in Hall H to unveil a brand new, full-length trailer for their highly-anticipated November release. Their brief appearances in front of a 6,000-strong audience marked the first time either A-lister had attended the annual pop culture showcase.
"We thought it would be a fun thing to come down and see what all the fuss is about,” Nolan confessed. And no wonder, with mind-bending films like Inception and the Dark Knight trilogy behind him (among others) the auteur has had no shortage of opportunities to wow Comic-Con attendees over the past decade. Why Nolan choose 2014 as the year to make the trek south to San Diego with footage in hand, we can't be sure but whatever his reason, we're just glad he did.
So without further ado, »

He didn’t make it for Inception, nor for any of his Batman movies but, in the first big surprise of this year’s Comic-Con, Christopher Nolan made his Con debut today to introduce Interstellar at the Paramount presentation. “I heard a lot about this being the place where people are most passionate about pop culture and movies,” Nolan told the masses gathered in Hall H. “I thought it would be fun to come down and see what all the fuss is about.”While far from pulling back the curtain on his secretive sci-fi project, the reticent director did talk about his motivations for making the film and the thought process that went into it. “I grew up in a time when to be an astronaut was the highest ambition. The idea that we’d keep exploring space, pushing farther and farther out, seemed inevitable. I felt that had fallen »
San Diego — After many rumors and wild media speculation, "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan and star Matthew McConaughey surprised Comic-Con's Hall H crowd by making their first appearances at the pop culture festival. And once they hit the stage, it seemed somewhat likely that a new trailer would be screened for the audience. More intriguingly, the duo provided more details on how the movie came to be and what to expect this November. McConaughey, who had shockingly never made it to Comic-Con before, came out first to a wild standing ovation. He revealed he first met for Nolan for three hours without the movie ever being brought up or discussed. "I remember leaving thinking, what was that about," McConaughey recalled. "He liked meeting me and a week later I got the script. I liked it quite a lot and I was in." His character, Cooper, a pilot, engineer and widowed father of two children. »

Christopher Nolan may not get the fanboy attention he once had, now that he’s done with the Dark Knight Trilogy, but that hasn’t stopped his upcoming sci-fi film Insterstellar from capturing major attention – both at in the mainstream and in the hallowed halls of Comic-Con.
Nolan and his Interstellar leading man Matthew McConaughey surprised attendees of Sdcc 2014 by showing up in person – something Nolan never ever did throughout his whole stint as the director of The Dark Knight Trilogy, or even his previous mega-blockbuster sci-fi film, Inception. The pair was on hand for the Paramount Pictures panel, answering questions about the ultra-secretive plot of the film as well as debuting a new trailer.

“Interstellar” has largely been veiled in secrecy, but Paramount was looking to give fans what they want, putting footage front and center. The studio also showed footage from “Hot Tub Time Machine 2,” found footage pic “Project Almanac,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water,” which will be a combo of animation and CG live-action.

Paramount scored the first bona fide surprise of Comic-Con when Christopher Nolan strode onstage in Hall H. After some evasive small talk, Nolan showed the very first trailer for Intersteller. Much like Nolan’s Inception, which was too complicated to describe in a sound bite, the trailer basically showed enough footage to convince you that you are going to want to see this when it opens in November. With Oscar winners Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway leading his cast, it also showed that Nolan might very well have a major entry in the Academy race on his hands. Basically, the trailer […] »
Comic-Con fans may want to spin a top to make sure they’re not dreaming: The man behind Inception and The Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan, made his first-ever appearance at the San Diego fan convention Thursday to show off his upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar.

The Big G returns in Godzilla.
In this latest film featuring the overgrown, nuclear halitosis-challenged lizard, Godzilla (who’s been doing what he does since his 1954 self-titled Japanese debut) rises from the depths to do battle with a pair of malevolent creatures that, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten the planet’s very existence. The larger-than-life battle takes him to the U.S. mainland this time around, specifically San Francisco.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters) from a screenplay by Max Borenstein and a story by David Callaham, Godzilla features such human cast members as Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Savages), Ken Watanabe (Inception »
Hardy stars as a warrior in the post-apocalyptic wastelands in the new installment in the 'Mad Max' franchise.
All you need for a good post-apocalyptic film is an amazing setting, a tough-as-nails hero, a souped-up car and a shotgun. From the looks of it, the upcoming installment in the Mad Max franchise has all this and more!
Inception star Tom Hardy is taking over the role of Max Rockatansky – previously played by Mel Gibson in the first three cult classics – and Hardy is teaming up with Charlize Theron who stars as Imperator Furiosa, who apparently has a robotic-hand, according to previously-released stills.
If you're not familiar with the Mad Max series, they take place in the Australian Outback after the world and civilization have crumbled due to several wars over resources and gasoline. Australian director George Miller made the first Mad Max in 1979 for $400,000.
People were a little surprised at the choice of villain for the final entry in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. The previous installment in the latest series of Batman films had made a (sadly posthumous) star of Heath Ledger, who delivered a barnstorming performance as psychotic supervillain The Joker, whose chaotic cunning and lack of limits placed Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne on the back foot from the off. Rumour had it that, with Ledger passing away between films, the third movie would see a similarly cerebral, psychological bad guy take his place.
When Joseph Gordon-Levitt was cast, the scuttlebutt is he would be playing The Riddler, who has some similarities with the Clown Prince Of Crime. Nobody was expecting the announcement that followed Jgl’s addition to the ensemble: that fellow Inception star Tom Hardy was on board, and would take the part of lead antagonist Bane. »

In a shocking and dispiriting turn of events, Wally Pfister, the talented cinematographer of Inception, The Dark Knight and practically every other Christopher Nolan film, chose Transcendence, surely one of the most jaw-droppingly brainless sci-fi movies in years, as his first directing gig. And Pfister will hopefully get out just about unscathed from this agonizing trainwreck, because his consistently stylish and visually pleasing direction is the only reason Transcendence should get any stars.
But I still must ask, what was he thinking? How is it possible that an Academy Award winner who worked on one of the best and most thoughtful sci-fi films of the last decade could have looked at the story of Transcendence and thought, “Yup, sounds good”? I can’t think of a wannabe blockbuster in recent memory that has ever been as gruesomely mauled to death by its script as Transcendence – after learning that screenwriter Jack Paglen »

The Purge: Anarchy may have come in first on Friday but, as expected, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes won the weekend box office race.

Change the way you remember. If you're looking for something a bit different than all those Hollywood movies in theaters right now, then spend 12 minutes watching this short film titled Streamline. Directed by Fs contributor Dan Marcus, the sci-fi thriller is about a man haunted by traumatic memories who's also being pursued by guys in grey outfits. It borrows a bit from Eternal Sunshine and the Spotless Mind, and has some Chris Nolan/Inception vibe going on, but it's a solid thriller with some sleek camerawork. It moves swiftly, and while the VFX aren't perfect, it's an intriguing indie sci-fi short to make you think. In full below. Synopsis for the short from Vimeo: A man haunted by traumatic memories must confront his past while eluding mysterious pursuers. Streamline is directed by Dan Marcus (follow him at @Danimalish), with a script written by by Dan Marcus, David Hammond & William Coffey, »
