Because Universal Pictures doesn't have a presentation scheduled at Hall H this year, it's very unlikely that we will be getting the chance to see footage from Jurassic World this week - but that doesn't mean that the gigantic geek fest won't have any dinosaur presence.
The Walking Dead Season 5 has a new banner, and just in time for Comic-Con. The latest artwork for the AMC zombie drama depicts some of the main characters in handcuffs inside the train car. And unsurprisingly, their eyes are on the exit.
How did a basement event with 300 people sprawl to a sold out spectacular that dominates pop culture conversation across television and the internet for a solid week each summer? That's precisely the question the video above answers while giving us a look back at the history and earliest days of San Diego Comic-Con.
I went ahead and recorded a Monday Movie Memo mapping out when the biggest panels are expected to run at San Diego Comic-Con, so that you know when – in general – to expect major news stories to break on our site. There are a handful of panels that are can’t-miss events.
Mass Effect fans will get more details on the series' fourth chapter this week. BioWare is holding a panel discussion this week about Mass Effect 4's development.
San Diego Comic-Con officially kicks off a week from today, so the timing is perfect for Warner Bros. to unveil the designs for the collectible bags, which will be handed out to all registered attendees when they arrive to pick up their SDCC badges.
When you go to the truck and mention that Cinema Blend sent you, you will receive this exclusive character poster of Oil Can. The first 25 to mention “Cinema Blend sent me” at the food truck will receive the poster signed by Isaac Hempstead Wright.
Knowing which studios are expected to be in town for San Diego Comic-Con, we put together a Surprise Wish List of in-development blockbusters that could bring a presentation at the last minute to next weekend’s fan-driven heaven. These are movies that would appeal directly to the gathered masses at Comic-Con, and they have been in some state of filming prior to the festivities.
We expect these images to be the appetizer to some major Avengers: Age of Ultron news breaking at San Diego Comic-Con next week. Keep it locked here, and we’ll report Marvel’s every move from the convention.
Marvel, above all other studios, knows how to do Hall H right. Their panel, year after year, is the one that leaves fans’ jaws on floors. And they blew the roof off of Hall H last year with the simple reveal that the title of The Avengers 2 would be Age of Ultron.
One of the most thrilling moments in the last five years of San Diego Comic-Con history came during the 2012 Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures panel. At the end of a panel about Pacific Rim, the lights went low, director Gareth Edwards stepped out on stage, and it was revealed that a new Godzilla movie was officially in the works.
Notable absences are Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey, but they’re all busy filming other things. Plus, there’s probably some kind of a contractual limit as far as how many of these actors can appear together at the same time without someone pulling a sword out.
The Cinema Blend offices have been buzzing these past few days as we all get ready for one of the biggest events of the year in our industry: San Diego Comic-Con. The massive geek-fest will be kicking off on July 23rd, and just like every year we will once again have a team on the ground (including myself) covering the expo.
As we reported earlier, Star Wars: Episode VII will be a no show, but that’s no surprise. Now we are hearing that Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four will bypass the annual comic book convention – and that strikes us as odd.
A project as massive as Star Wars: Episode VII doesn’t need to roll Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford (and his busted leg) and Carrie Fisher on a stage to generate headlines. The stories are going to come anyway.
