There are many reasons to be excited for the upcoming Dallas Comic-Con. For one, it's finally moving into a bigger facility that should better accommodate the growing crowds. Pair that with the most impressive guest list yet and it should equal an experience attendees will not soon forget.
May the 4th, the official Star Wars day, is almost here, and most sources are pointing to that being the day we get some official Star Wars: Episode VII news...Which makes sense considering the film is starting production that month and something has to come out soon. Until then, however, we're stuck with rumors and today's is a report about when we'll finally know the full title of the film.
If you're worried about some April Fool's stuff, rest assured, you won't find them here because this new footage and poster actually dropped over the long weekend. Aside from a few behind the scenes shots and one really awesome teaser trailer, Fox's marketing for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has been scant. With the film only a few months release, however, that's about to change. Now we have a TV spot and a new poster for the film. Both are very awesome, so come inside to check them out!
While official news regarding Star Wars: Episode VII is still pretty slim, today an official announcement has landed, in which Lucasfilm has now confirmed that filming/production will begin in May of this year (only a couple months away). While no casting info was given, they announcement did confirm that the film will take place 30 years after the first trilogy!
CBS DVD and RLJ Entertainment release the perfect present for any classic sci-fi enthusiast in the form of The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series collection. All 156 episodes of creator Rod Serling's epic anthology show are found in this special box set. They're conveniently housed on 25 discs for easy access to any of its five seasons.
I love how the mainstream press all influence each other and basically end up writing the same review for a film while jumping on their own self-made bandwagons. The media was so obsessed with the fact that Will Smith would have the audacity to appear onscreen with his son Jaden in a movie helmed by a "failed" director that they couldn't just enjoy After Earth for what it is. It's a sci-fi movie filled with action and suspense and a deeper meaning at its center.
Oh the X-Men goodness just keeps on coming. Wanting to keep our love for all things X-Men: Days of Future Past burning bright, Bryan Singer tweeted a picture of himself standing next to a giant Sentinel on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Nothing says immensely huge like being dwarfed by a hulking machine. And just how cool does that robotic warrior look standing there like he could pick the Superman Returns director up like an action figure? Come on in and take a good giant look at the Sentinel up close and personal.
Walking Dead fans assemble... and stay in doors. AMC unleashed the long awaited Season 4 trailer for their zombie apocalypse phenom The Walking Dead on Friday in the vaunted Hall H at Comic-Con 2013. Eager for some Dead time the hall was packed and TWD fans were rewarded with some righteous level deadly tenseness. Which is exactly what zombie lovin' fans of the monster show want. When it hit the net on Friday, bloggers nearly lit on fire because they were moving at the speed of light just to be the first movie blog to post the trailer after the screen went dark. It was shared fast and furious because oh, boy everyone cared. And they cared hard.
Hail Caesar! Great and wonderful things are happening in the vaunted Hall H on Saturday. The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to 2011's blockbuster Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is getting the superb sneak peek treatment by director Matt Reeves at Comic-Con 2013. What better way is there to whet a movie goer's appetite for scifi goodness than with a director reveal at the best place on earth in San Diego these few awesome days in July?
As we all know Benedict Cumberbatch's role in the upcoming Star Trek sequel has been something of a mystery, one that has had fans speculating since filming first began. The evidence has been pointing in mostly one direction, and now it looks as though Entertainment Weekly has just spoiled it on their website. I won't rule out that it might be a typo...but just in case you don't want to know (though I doubt it'll be much of a spoiler) I'll tell you more about it after the jump.
