BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The World of Warcraft movie, which was unofficially announced back in January and caused at least a few gamers some big concern, has now totally, officially been confirmed
Given that a lot of us helped pay for the upcoming Veronica Mars movie, it only makes sense that we get a look at what's in store even while the movie is shooting. And while the attendees at the movie's Comic-Con panel yesterday actually got face time with the cast, the five-minute preview for the film that showed in Hall H is now available for the rest of us to see above.
What follows is a spirited, in-depth conversation about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the world that Webb is trying to build on screen. I held very little back in terms of specifics, and Webb was as gracious and open as he could be … while still trying to protect the integrity of his sequel.
If day one of Comic-Con is a bit awkward as the newbies are being initiated into the fold and the veterans are preparing to nosedive back into the pool of chaotic nerdiness, day two is full on Comic-Con, any last stragglers be damned. There’s more people in costume. There’s more high profile panels, and there’s more unabashed geekiness everywhere.
The footage, to coin a phrase, was amazing. The panel was light and unstructured, but the footage reel sizzled (pun probably intended). Electro is going to be a formidable villain, very cinematic and bursting with energy. Spidey’s sarcastic humor is front and center, and the seeds for a larger story are being laid.
Sony and Screen Gems have blocked off a little over two hours to show us what they have in store. This panel will feature Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, RoboCop and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With so much to sort through, we're dividing this live blog up into parts. This part focuses on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is due out next May.

If you are a dragon… do not try to eat Vin Diesel's fingers. This is just one of many lessons to be learned in this new restricted trailer for Riddick, which premiered earlier today during the film's Comic-Con panel and is now online so the rest of us get to feel like we were there. And anyway, if you were there to see it in person, all the other geeks would have seen you cringing when Diesel kicks a blade and chops a guys face in half
It was four whole years ago that Matthew Vaughn brought the first footage from Kick-Ass to Comic-Con and blew away Con-goers who had no idea what to expect from a lesser-known comic book about an average kid who tries to turn himself into a superhero. Now Kick-Ass 2 has brought Hit Girl, Kick-Ass, Red Mist and more back to Hall H, and now you can see the brand-new, extended and very filthy look at the film that screened for Comic Con audiences just minutes ago
Is Vin Diesel really going to be in a Marvel movie? He's definitely wanted us to think so for a while now, leading us on through a lot of vague Facebook posts, but at Comic-Con this afternoon he finally set a date. During a panel for the upcoming Riddick, Diesel answered a question from a fan about all those Marvel hints with a teasing, "There is some very big news coming at the end of this month." He followed it up, obviously, with a huge smile
Though there were probably a ton of geeks psyched to get a look at Ender's Game during the film's Hall H panel at Comic-Con yesterday, but plenty of others-- OK, fine, all of them-- were dying to get a look at Harrison Ford in person. And while those of us stuck at home didn't get to see Ford scowl in the flesh, he's at least at the center of the film's first clip, which introduces us to the heroics of Mazer Rackham and treats us as if we're enrolling in Battle School right alongside Ender
Up next in Hall H is Universal Pictures' panel, which is showcasing Riddick and Kick-Ass 2. Talent from both summer movies will be in attendance. While Universal's description doesn't give us specifics for Kick-Ass 2, we do know that the sequel to the bloody-thrilling super-hero movie stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Grace Moretz, as well as newcomer Jim Carrey.
Veronica Mars is getting a movie! That's not news, I know. But it's still exciting, and today in Hall H at Comic-Con, the cast and director (series creator) Rob Thomas will convene to answer questions and show us some exclusive footage. We also expect to hear details about the production, which is already underway, following the successful Kickstarter campaign that gave the cancelled series new life.
“If you don't like this movie, I'm going to personally come up there and beat your brains in.” That was Sylvester Stallone greeting a theater filled with action-film geeks at a special advanced screening of Escape Plan, introduced by “The Italian Stallion” and his equally legendary partner in crime, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Starting things off in Hall H on Friday morning is the panel for The World's End, Edgar Wright's upcoming film, which centers on a group of childhood friends who reunite for the ultimate pub crawl, only to find themselves facing armageddon, which may prevent them from reaching The World's End, the last bar on the list.
The uncomfortable energy and chaos of preview night has been replaced by the exuberance of the first, full-fledged real day of Comic Con, which means real panels, more casting announcements and a rapid rise in the number of costumed attendees.
The big-budget adaptation of Ender's Game is already running into its share of controversy, with the studio separating itself from the anti-gay views of the book's writer, Orson Scott Card. And while the road for a big-screen Ender's Game has undeniably been paved by The Hunger Games

Summit is doubling up on futuristic adaptations with their SDCC panel this year, giving fans a look at both Ender's Game and Divergent. We're covering each film with a separate live blog. This is the live-blog for Divergent which is based on a novel by Veronica Roth and stars Shailene Woodley as Tris Prior, a young woman living in dystopian Chicago where society is divided into five factions, which determined a person's way of life.
For the love of science! Europa Report is a movie that looks back at the space mission a crew embarks upon in an effort to discover life on Jupiter's moon Europa. As you might imagine, things don't go according to plan. The film arrives in theaters next month, though it's already available to rent on Amazon.
DreamWorks Animation is claiming the first movies panel of Comic-Con today, and they've wasted no time in breaking some news about one of their most anticipated upcoming films. Our Mack Rawden is in the room liveblogging the panel and he reports that after showing off an "awesome" new clip from How To Train Your Dragon 2...
X-Men: Days of Future Past will be at the center of one our most anticipated panels at this year's Comic-Con, but it turns out, we didn't have to wait until Saturday's Hall H panel for the big reveal. The above photo, taken outside the Hard Rock Hotel facing the convention center in downtown San Diego, reveals the robotic menace that we've suspected for a while would be at the center of the new X-Men films-- the Sentinels
