Admittedly, it is a surprise that more titles weren't announced – specifically the July 2016 date, which would have to be for a film soon to enter the pre-production phase – though believing Marvel would give up their whole plan is foolish.
There are certain movies that seem to court controversy. They find a polarizing subject, and they release marketing materials in order to generate headlines. Stirring the pot is the basic marketing strategy. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not one of those movies. In fact, the flick’s basic existence is likely owed to good vibes and the marketing power of nostalgia.
The good news is, it gives the creative team a chance to redo some people we've already seen who sadly did not thrive in the translation from page to screen. The bad news is that the X-Men universe is quite vast, and it seems a bit wasteful to repeat characters when there are all-new ones we haven't yet seen.
Just when you had given up hope that you'd see the long teased Whole Bloody Affair cut of Kill Bill, in comes Quentin Tarantino to give us hope that we will get to see that promised land in the near future. At least, that's what he wants us to think, after all we've heard these words from him before.
If they mostly follow this storyline (which involves Ultron consistently generating versions of himself to battle the heroes), then the role Pym played will fall to Tony Stark. Which explains why Stark is the one who hasn't been mind-wiped or whatever in the footage.
Part of what J.J. Abrams and the other directors invited into George Lucas’ sandbox are learning exactly what is spelled out in these books: that this is a fertile landscape to explore, with thousands of viable stories that need to be told in some way, shape or form.
One could argue no project announcement at this weekend's Comic-Con carried the buzz of Legendary's Skull Island. Legendary's surprise trailer and revelation that this was their big mystery project threw the industry for a loop. The King Kong prequel/spinoff/whatever is now gearing up soon for a 2016 release, which suggests that they already have someone in mind to make it. And wouldn't you know it, that someone big just might be Joe Cornish.
Interstellar blew the roof off of Hall H at this year's Comic-Con. However, not everyone could be there to share the experience, so the next best thing is going to be experiencing the supposedly gorgeous trailer in theaters. That experience is heading to theaters sooner than you'd think.
The original idea was to shoot Fury Road and Furiosa back to back, to the point where the years-long production time was assumed to encompass both movies. Now we know that isn't the case, which suggests Miller and company put everything they had into Fury Road.
This past weekend, those attending the Marvel Studios presentation during San Diego Comic-Con were treated to a pretty terrifying new look at the central villain in Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Paul Thomas Anderson and Joaquin Phoenix are aiming for a two picture hot streak with their detective noir/comedy film, Inherent Vice. Early reviews are coming in, and not only are they praising the film as a weirdly funny experience – but you'll never guess who's being pegged as the current MVP of the cast!
We decided to look through Hollywood and see who else needed a badass action vehicle. Age wasn't a concern: if CGI and editing can make a bunch of seventy year olds jump through fireballs in The Expendables then why can't older women pull of feats of ridiculous strength too? (Also: see Red)
Death and destruction are coming to cinemas this December. When we last left Middle-earth in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the titular dragon had been wounded by Bilbo and the band of dwarfs, but was still on its way to Lake Town - which he planned to burn to the ground. As a result, we can expect that things in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies are going to start off on a very dark note, and that's very much reflected in this new trailer.
The visuals are similar to what we saw in Robert Rodriguez’s first film, and that earned $158.7 million worldwide. That was back in 2005, though. Nearly a decade ago! Do audiences still care?
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige held serve over the Hall H panel, introducing press time with such massive celebs as Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll for the Ant-Man portion of the panel.
