With practically no dialogue, the teaser trailer for Skybound Entertainment's Air debuted at Sdcc this weekend, and we have it for you right here along with a few highlights from the panel.

Director Christian Cantamessa described the film to the crowd assembled for Skybound's presentation, "[It] is full of hope. It's just my way to kind of give hope that there is a future, and the best way to experience it is maybe seeing the other side first, and then you can appreciate what you've got."

He added, "I think the best science-fiction is talking about our society and our world."

Co-star (with Djimon Hounsou) Norman Reedus said, "I'm really excited about this film. Christian's going to be a great director, I can tell."

Kirkman explained the setup, "Norman and Djimon are playing maintenance workers in a makeshift cryogenic facility in a missile silo that was put together in a hurry »

Joaquin Phoenix Rumored for 'Dr. Strange' Role, Cumberbatch Out

25 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last time Joaquin Phoenix found his name mentioned with regard to a superhero movie it was rumors he'd be playing Lex Luthor in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a role that eventually went to Jesse Eisenberg. Now his name is back in the trades in connection to Marvel's Doctor Strange, which is to be directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose). The news comes from The Wrap where it's said Phoenix's name is "mentioned most often" for the role and "is in consideration and has had discussions about the movie." Adding to the rumor, The Playlist notes tweets in which Phoenix was apparently seen in Connecticut in comic book stores purchasing "Doctor Strange" comics. https://twitter.com/KevinInChains/statuses/490269444568928257 https://twitter.com/TonytheNunes/statuses/491959469652582400 Meanwhile, if you thought Benedict Cumberbatch was the one taking the role, he recently told MTV it just wouldn't work.

Joaquin Phoenix Eyed For Doctor Strange

25 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed TheWrap’s scoop and added that Phoenix is now in active negotiations for the lead role, not simply considering an offer by Marvel. Chances seem good that he’ll take the role.

Original: When Marvel goes to Comic-Con for its panel tomorrow, there will undoubtedly be some absolutely jaw-dropping reveals – and we’re expecting that the actor who’ll be playing Stephen Strange in Marvel’s Doctor Strange may be announced there. However, we may have uncovered the lucky actor one day early.

According to TheWrap, The Master star Joaquin Phoenix, who recently appeared in James Gray’s acclaimed The Immigrant, is being eyed for the lead role in Doctor Strange, which Sinister helmer Scott Derrickson is directing for the studio from a script by Jon Spaihts, as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming Phase Three.

Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Play Doctor Strange for Marvel

25 July 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

A number of names have been linked to the role of Doctor Strange, and the latest is Her star Joaquin Phoenix. The Academy Award nominated actor recently passed up the chance to play the villainous Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it now seems like he’ll be the next unlikely choice wooed by Marvel Studios.

Phoenix’s name has apparently come up a number of times recently, and while there’s still no deal in place, he said to have met with Marvel and discussed playing the character who will likely hit the big screen in 2016.

Whether the studio will be able to convince the actor to sign a multi-picture contract to play Doctor Strange remains to be seen, and though Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy may be unavailable due to scheduling conflicts, other rumoured candidates like Jared Leto and Justin Theroux could still be chosen out of left field. »

Joaquin Phoenix Is Reportedly in Talks For 'Doctor Strange': Here's Why That's a Good Thing

25 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing, but the rumor mill about "Doctor Strange" is just picking up speed.

Benedict Cumberbatch was evasive yesterday at the "The Penguins of Madagascar" panel when asked if he might be the next Marvel superhero -- "What rumors?" -- but less than 24 hours later, another actor's name is being bandied about for the role of "Doctor Strange." According to Deadline, Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to star in "Doctor Strange" as the eponymous neurosurgeon slash sorcerer from the comic books. This rumor is weird but plausible, if not downright brilliant.

A great part of the success and appeal of the Marvel movies has to do with the unlikely or even risky directors and stars that Kevin Feige et al pick to helm their franchises. After all, Joss Whedon wasn't exactly a household name when he was anointed for "The Avengers," and we didn't quite »

Benedict Cumberbatch Addresses ‘Doctor Strange’ Rumours

24 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Benedict Cumberbatch is no stranger to fandoms and there have been rumours linking him to Doctor Strange for a while.  Whilst attending his first Comic-Con promoting The Penguins Of Madagascar, the Sherlock star spoke about those Doctor Strange rumours and whether he has been in talks with Marvel.

“As far as I’m aware, even if that was the case, it couldn’t work out because I’m doing a little play called Hamlet in London. So I don’t think I could even if that was in the cards. It sounds like a fantastic project. It’s a shame if I miss out, but who knows?” It seems highly likely that Cumberbatch has been in contact with Marvel due to his knowledge of the shooting dates.  However the star simply smirked and stated he couldn’t possibly comment on whether he had been in serious talks for the highly anticipated role. »

Benedict Cumberbatch sort of denies 'Doctor Strange' rumors

24 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Will Benedict Cumberbatch join the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe or not? While at the San Diego Comic Con to plug his new animated film "Penguins of Madagascar," the fan favorite "Sherlock" star was inevitably asked to confirm or deny rumors that he's in the running to play Marvel's "Doctor Strange" on the big screen. “As far as I’m aware, even if that was the case, it couldn’t work out because I’m doing a little play called ‘Hamlet’ in London," he told MTV. "So I don’t think I could even if that was in the cards. It sounds like a fantastic project. It’s a shame if I miss out, but who knows?” He also sidestepped a question about even meeting with Marvel. “I couldn’t possibly comment," Cumberbatch said, which many fans will no doubt translate as "I've met with them." It's not exactly a flat-out denial, »

Get Ready For 10 More Years Of Micro-Budget Horror Movies

24 July 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you credited Jason Blum for single-handedly resurrecting horror as a viable moneymaker, you wouldn't be far off. Through his production company Blumhouse Productions, Blum has been churning out low-budget horror films with excellent casts, and the results have been one big fat box office hit after another. Not so shocking, Universal wants a piece of this big, bloody pie, so they've offered Blum a decade-long multiplatform deal. THR reports Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions's new 10-year deal will include partnerships across NBCUniversal's businesses, including Universal Television and Universal Cable Productions. It's a first look production deal that essentially means future Blumhouse movies will first be offered to Universal for distribution. This will include the future of the Sinister franchise. While the first film was distributed by Lionsgate, Universal has secured its sequel for its Focus Features branch. But that's not all. Blum has also been contracted to help »

'Sinister 2' Gets 2015 Release Date

24 July 2014 3:04 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Sinister was one of the better horror films of 2012. The film starred Ethan Hawke as a true crime writer that starts experiencing supernatural occurrences in his new home. Earlier this year, Ciaran Foy was announced as the director of the sequel, which was co-written by Scott Derrickson, who helmed the original. Now, Focus Features has announced that Sinister 2 will arrive in theaters on August 21, 2015.

The film is being produced by Derrickson, along with Blumhouse's Jason Blum and eOne. Derrickon co-wrote the script with C. Robert Cargill.  Derrickson and Cargill also wrote the original film.

The follow-up to the 2012 micro-budget hit will continue the story of Bughuul, aka Mr. Boogie. The original film made $87 million on a $3 million budget, so a sequel was a no brainer.

Sinister 2 Will Haunt Theaters on August 21st, 2015

23 July 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sinister 2 is just over a year away.  Focus Features announced today that the horror sequel will land in wide release on August 21st, 2015.  While original director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil)  isn’t returning behind the camera, he did team with C. Robert Cargill (who also worked on the original film) to pen the script and will of course produce the movie alongside Jason Blum.  If you saw Sinister you can probably guess why there aren’t any announcements about Ethan Hawke coming back. I really liked the first film’s use of imagery and I think the general mood of the piece was its most successful element.  So I’m glad that they’re entrusting the reins on this on to Ciaran Foy, who directed the excellent Citadel (seriously, seek that one out if you haven’t seen it already).  Hit the »
