While there is certainly a great deal of history between Comic-Con and the city of San Diego, it's not exactly hard to see the problems in the relationship - and I can say that having been to the last five San Diego Comic-Cons. While the San Diego Convention Center has expanded over the years in order to try and contain the annual event's ever-growing capacity, the truth is that the place becomes a disturbingly-packed madhouse every year for a couple days.
Inside you'll find the first trailer for Rosewater,, a film based on the book by and true story of journalist Maziar Bahari, which has been adapted for the big screen by Stewart as his directorial debut. In the movie, Gael García Bernal plays Bahari, who was in Iran during the presidential elections of 2009 covering for Newsweek Magazine. When protests broke out over Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's reported victory before the polls had even closed, Bahari filmed the events and sent footage to the BBC.
Now that we are seeing a new photo for Serena, does this mean a trailer will follow? Or a release date? Or the possible hint of an awards campaign? Because right now, the film is a high-profile mystery, and we’d love to have it solved.
After months and months of teasing the fulfillment of The Mandarin/Ten Rings storyline first hinted at the start of the franchise, Iron Man 3's revelation that The Mandarin was actually just an act portrayed by a washed up stage actor either pissed you off or really entertained you.

Needless to say, we had a lot to talk about with the Russos, from Captain America: The Winter Soldier to Marvel’s plans for Captain America 3 and beyond.
Ghostbusters changed me that summer. I started using the jokes I learned in that movie (as well as in Splash, Romancing the Stone, Police Academy, Beverly Hills Cop, Revenge of the Nerds and everything else I could sneak on HBO) in my every day life. But Ghostbusters changed my mom that summer, too.
If you've ever found yourself watching Sons Of Anarchy and thought to yourself that Charlie Hunnam was destined to play King Arthur, it's time to start collecting on those bets you made with all of your friends.
Over the past few years, anti-Western sentiment has spread through portions of Russian society. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean the country has adopted a completely negative attitude toward Hollywood.
Music has long played a very important role in Martin Scorsese's career. Whether it's the memorable uses of songs like Eric Clapton's "Layla" or “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” by Dropkick Murphys in features like Goodfellas and The Departed or concert documentaries he's helmed like The Last Waltz and Shine A Light, the filmmaker has long found a way to bring the two mediums into harmonious sync.
Similar to Screen Gems' other major franchise, Resident Evil, the Underworld movies were always far more successful internationally than there were here in the United States. While none of the films thus far have managed to break $65 million here in the States, the box office numbers balloon to triple digits when the foreign markets are accounted for.
Going back to 2008, Robert Downey Jr. has been the face of the Marvel Studios franchise. It was his performance as Tony Stark in Jon Favreau's Iron Man that lit the powder keg that wound up becoming the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he has been a key player and figure ever since.
