Legendary Touts ‘Warcraft’, While Warner Brothers Shocks With ‘Superman VS Batman’

Posted on 23 July 2013 by Anisa

Tom Cruise In Edge of Tomorrow Panel

 
We've heard the rumors to the mash up between Batman and Superman all the way back in 2011, but to actually hear it confirmed was a completely different experience. And this experience was reserved for the San Diego Comic Con fans last Saturday. Needless to say, there was a huge explosion of approval and excitement as the partial cast was revealed by Warner Bros., sans the movie title or any other details beside a simple graphic on screen. So far we know that Zack Snyder is directing, and Henry Cavill will be playing the role of Superman. The movie is set to be released 2015 and we'll definitely have more details as they surface.
 
Before the Batman/Superman tidbit though we got a chance to watch feature footage from movies like 'Godzilla', 'Warcraft', 'Seventh Son', 300:Rise of An Empire', and panels for 'Gravity', 'The Lego Movie' and Tom Cruise's 'Edge of Tomorrow'.
 
We're very excited to see all of these movies but based on footage alone we can conclude that Godzilla will be full of epic action and Warcraft promises not to disappoint.
 
Another point of excitement for us was when Game of Thrones heart throb Kit Harrington took turns to comment on his role as Spook's apprentice in the movie 'Seventh Son', directed by Sergei Bodrov and starring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes and due to be released January 2014. The movie is set in 18th century and is about young Thomas (Ben Barnes) who gets sold to Spook (Jeff Bridges) and gets trained in the art of defeating evil spirits. Turns out they sent Kit off to act for prolonged periods of time under rainstorms. At least it wasn't the -30s of Iceland where they filmed Game of Thrones eh Kit? Needless to say, this will be a fun movie to watch if you're into myth and action combos.
 
Gamers and game enthusiasts alike were taken aback by the 'Warcraft' footage shown today and no you won't be able to see it anywhere online anytime soon. However, the concept and and basic idea reached the audience as they showed a desert wasteland and a warrior unsheathing his sword before a hammer wielding orc. All we know so far is that it will be directed by Duncan Jones and he's mighty excited about the prospects of living upto the myth of an 11 million player game world wide. Best of luck to you Duncan!

20th Century Fox Panel ‘Apes’, ‘Wolverine’ and ‘X-Men’

Posted on 21 July 2013 by Anisa

Third day of Comic Con here and we were lucky to join the highly anticipated panels of 20th Century Fox for their blockbuster movies 'Dawn of The Planet of Apes' , 'The Wolverine' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

Due to be released on July 18 of 2014, in 'Dawn of The Planet of Apes' panel we saw director Matt Reeves joined by stars Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Andy Serkis who plays the role of our favorite ape from the prequel, Caesar.

The sequel features the stories of a group of scientists in San Francisco who are battling to stay alive in the aftermath of a plague that has nearly wiped out all of mankind. While our fine furry friend Caesar tries to maintain control of his group of intelligent apes. Andy Serkis, who played Caesar in the previous movie said that it was exciting to return to play Caesar one more time since he had played him from an infant to a leader. This time though, Caesar is in a position where all apes are stronger; he's a father and a husband and this time its all about the choices he makes when the humans arrive. We are also told that Caesar learns how to communicate with more than just sounds, and includes sign language and gestures in his repertoire.

When asked what the entry point of the film was, Keri Russell commented that she had joined the cast because of Matt Reeves and she trusted his sensibility in taking the story on. She said that in the movie, each community is trying to take care of themselves independently and that's something to look forward to see how it unfolds the story line.

Jason Clarke on the other hand, found it extremely exciting to have Cirque du Soleil come in and pull off the stunts, so the entire movie does not depend on CGI stunt works. (We love Cirque du Soleil and can't wait to see how that turns out).

On ending, Matt Reeves was asked whether it helps to know where the story ends exactly and he commented by saying that it helps him personally. He said there are stories that are about what happened and there are stories that you know what happened but don't know why, and what's so great about the franchise is that humans are portrayed as the animals and it provides a way to look at society.

Well that sure sounds a little bit more dramatic than we expected but nevertheless, we'll be getting ourselves a pair of early tickets when the movie hits theaters on July 18, 2014.

The panel also hosted 'The Wolverine' director James Mangold and the Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman. The lowdown on the movie is that it has become a personal and fresh journey about the Wolverine character. Hugh told us that we will be able to understand Wolverine a lot more than before. And although he can't jump tall buildings or take down a 747, he has his awesome claws to strike people down and has healing as an added boost. According to James Mangold, the toughest part of the movie was how to go about portraying a character who constantly heals while all those around him die away. He said they had to start off with a Wolverine who has retreated from relationships and is a man who has lost everyone dear in his life. A short clip of the movie was also played showing Logan slicing through a samurai in Japan, while the samurai finds himself exclaiming: 'What kind of monster are you?' after the Wolverine pulls out the katana from his chest. We hear the movie will be played in 3D on July 26. That's not even a week from now! Check out the trailer here if you haven't seen it already:

After this, Hugh Jackman introduced Brian Singer to take over the stage for the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'. The star studded ensemble included Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Michael Fassbender, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Shawn Ashmore who joined the utterly epic Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, along with director Singer, writer/producer Simon Kinberg and producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Hutch Parker, . One of the highlights of today's panel was  the introduction of Omar Sy joining the cast as Bishop, and Even Peters who will be seen playing Quicksilver in the upcoming movie that will hit the theaters May 23rd, 2014. As far as we could tell, the Stewart McKellen duo got the most applause from the audience but Peter Dinklage was in a close second since he's taken a place in our hearts in his 'Game of Thrones' role.

During the banter, Halle Berry was asked what it was like to be playing Storm to which she replied that she sees her as the Earth Mother of the group and thats one thing that has resonated with her on a personal level. She was ecstatic when they called her to offer the role, it didn't take long for her to reply with: 'send me the wig!'. All the cast said they were very excited to be back with the X-Men, and Ellen Page even commented that the first one wasn't as big in size and scale compared to sequel. We were shown some fresh footage from the movie while its still being shot in Vancouver and got introduced to Omar Sy's character Bishop who plays a guy from the future, with red eyes and dread locks as long as Bob Marley's. On the other hand, Even Peters's character Quicksilver we we're told is faster than any of the other characters which a personality to match. Excited yet? So are we!

MERLIN panel

Posted on 15 July 2012 by Amber

Today we were at Comic-con to see the MERLIN panel. MERLIN returns for a fifth season this winter on the Syfy channel.

On the panel are the Executive Producers (Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy) as well as Colin Morgan, Katie McGrath and Angel Coulby.

In season five the show jumps three years allowing the characters to develop a bit between seasons.  This year they also focus on more story lines to give the show a more adult feel. Merlin becomes more of a man and Arthur is on his way to becoming king.

Angel shared that it has been exciting to see her character Gwen, grow although she always knew that she had the Queen in her.  Katie shared that she feels Morgana isn't evil but is a misunderstood hero. Watch out for a juicy storyline between Morgana and Gwen.

image

Colin shared that Merlin really crossed over into being a man at the end of season 4 and it progresses even further for season 5.  Colin shared that "he gives as much as he gets" this season.

Julian Murphy shared that you can expect more great guest stars this season. We also saw a sneak peek of a new Merlin game on Facebook.  Johnny and Julian shared that they were involved in the creation of the game and that it was important to make sure story was allowed to develop along with the game.

Also, look for exclusive footage on the MERLIN YouTube channel which is launching today!

image

We saw a lot of exclusive footage of gag reels and a sneak peek of season 5. The last line of the footage was "Camelots great trial has begun."

Some things we learned during audience Q&A: Mordred will be back in season 5.  Merlin was always lonely during the legends, and that is one of his obstacles and the love he has had ended badly. So in other words, no love interest in the works for Merlin.  Morgana's costume won't change much in season 5.  We will see more of the white dragon in season 5.

Hope you enjoyed and we apologize greatly for any spelling mistakes, this article was posted from a phone!

A Few Comic-Con Trailers Online

Posted on 29 July 2010 by Andrew

San Diego Comic Con started a week ago, yet footage slowly keeps trickling online.  There is a ton of stuff to sift through, but these three trailers look very promising.  The first trailer is for the new AMC series “The Walking Dead”  and looks like it could be another classic show for their line up.  The show is based off of the popular graphic novel of the same name.

Next is the Comic Con reel for Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.  This was brought online in HD by Apple a few days ago but the footage here is spectacular.  You’ll have to watch it a few times to catch everything.

Last but not least is the footage from the Thor panel that was put online yesterday.  This trailer is cut a lot slower than usual but it gives us a good sense as to what Thor looks like and how the two worlds will be shown in the movie.

There are probably a ton more videos online but these were the three that caught my eye recently.  We have already posted the new Tron Legacy and Let Me In trailers that debuted at comic con as well.
