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

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!

Godzilla: He’s back!

Legendary Pictures (The Dark Knight, 300) has recently announced in a new press release that they will be filming a brand new Godzilla movie.  It will be produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, and Brian Rogers and the rest of the cast and crew will be announced soon.  A new Godzilla movie seems like a good idea, especially because the last one was considered to be unspeakably awful, though I feel it is just an average movie not the disaster the Internet made it out to be.  Legendary Pictures is the most fanboy and geek driven company out there right now so Godzilla should be a great fit for their upcoming slate.  I attached the press release below.

Burbank, CA – March 29, 2010 – Legendary Pictures announced today that they will develop and produce a new film based on Toho Company’s famed GODZILLA character.  Through the terms of the agreement, Legendary Pictures has acquired the rights to produce a movie inspired by Toho’s Godzilla, a franchise the Japanese company created and has nurtured for over fifty years.

Toho’s GODZILLA franchise boasts one of the most widely recognized film creatures worldwide, resulting in a series of books, television programs, video games and more than 25 films worldwide.  Legendary intends to approach the film and its characters in the most authentic manner possible.  The company will, in the near future, announce a filmmaker to helm the film for an intended 2012 release. The film will fall under the company’s co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros.  Toho will distribute the film in Japan.

“Godzilla is one of the world’s most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise,” said Thomas Tull, Chairman and CEO of Legendary. “Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see.  We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has.”

“Godzilla is a signature Japanese character which we have nurtured over the years. It is a great honor to reach an agreement with Legendary Pictures, the parent to many a blockbuster film, and we are delighted in rebooting the character together to realize its much anticipated return by fans from all over the world,” comments Hideyuki Takai, President of Toho Co., Ltd. “We are anxious to find out where Godzilla’s new stomping will take us.”

“Godzilla is emblematic of the kind of branded, event films for which Warner Bros and our partners at Legendary are best known. We have enjoyed a great deal of success together to date and this newest opportunity represents yet another chance for us to collaborate on a property that is very clearly in their wheelhouse,” said Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros. Pictures Group.

In addition to Legendary, producers on the new film will be Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Brian Rogers. Yoshimitsu Banno, Kenji Okuhira and Doug Davison will Executive Produce.
