Comic Con: Walking Dead panel with cast and crew!

A lot has happened in the Walking Dead universe since last year's Comic Con panel. I won't get in to spoilers for the uninitiated, but suffice to say there was more than one fewer seat on stage in Hall H this year. The lucky ones who did make it back included starts Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, and Michael...

Comic Con 2012: Total Recall and Looper panels with Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Along with ELYSIUM, Sony brought a couple more anticipated science fiction movies. Len Wiseman’s TOTAL RECALL remake had a presence at last year’s Con, and is only a few weeks away from its wide release. We know the three-boobed alien chick is back and that Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale have a catfight, so all the important bases are covered, right? On deck today at the...

Comic Con 2012: Elysium panel with Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Neil Blomkamp

Neil Blomkamp blew the roof off Comic Con in 2009 with the premiere of the fantastic DISTRICT 9, so we were fookin’ excited to learn more about his secretive sci-fi follow up. And today in Hall H, Blomkamp, producer Simon Kinberg and actors Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copely showed us quite a bit. Blomkamp started out by saying he tries to be honest as a filmmaker, but...

Comic Con 2012: Frankenweenie

The Mouse House brought three of their upcoming releases to Comic Con this year, including this new family/geek friendly flick! Not only is this a return to stop motion for Tim Burton, but it also sees the director revisiting one of his earliest creations. Based on his 1984 short film of the same name, FRANKENWEENIE tells the story of a young boy scientist who goes a little Mary...

COMIC CON: Francis Ford Coppola's Twixt and Live 3D Tour!

I was a little surprised that Steven Soderbergh came to Comic Con this year, but I’m pretty sure I did a spit take when it was announced that Francis Ford Coppola would also host a panel. The GODFATHER and JACK director brought Hall H a first look at his latest experimental film TWIXT, an original horror tale inspired by one of Coppola’s own dreams. And fittingly for a master...

INTERVIEW: James Woods of Straw Dogs straight talks with us!

James Woods is a great man. Even if you don't agree with his politics or opinions, his honesty and candor is not only entertaining but refreshing, especially in PR-driven Hollywood. There's no BS with Woods, and after speaking with his colleagues on the set of the STRAW DOGS remake, that seems to be a quality that everyone loves and respects about the guy. ("When we shoot with him we call...

SET VISIT: Rod Lurie's Straw Dogs remake

Director Rod Lurie is aware of the fury headed his way this fall. Considering he started his career as a film critic, he very well should be. Remakes are a sore enough subject with movie fans, but when a filmmaker takes a shot at an outright classic, they’re only setting themselves up for extra scorn and scrutiny. So it was with perhaps some level of preemptive confidence that we...

Review: Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

This movie was screened as part of the 2010 Virginia Film Festival . PLOT: A troubled young girl is sent to live with her architect father and his new girlfriend in the abandoned Gothic house they're remodeling. But the terrifying prospects of a new life, location and potential stepmother don't hold a candle to the more sinister creatures awaiting her in the building's...

COMIC CON 2010: Cowboys & Aliens with Jon Favreau and Harrison Ford!

I don't think there's a single human being alive that knows how to work Hall H like Jon Favreau. Like he’s done since the first premiere of IRON MAN footage in 2007, Favs brought his “A” game to his brief Comic Con appearance to show off COWBOYS & ALIENS. Even though they’ve just started production on the sci-fi western, it was apparent the kind of...

COMIC CON 2010: Don't be Afraid of the Dark

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark I haven’t seen the original film that this remake is based on (I hear it’s quite cheesy and dated), but I’d watch an updated version of HOWARD THE DUCK if Guillermo Del Toro was involved. The geek director extraordinaire, who is producing alongside CHUD.com webmaster Nick Nunziata , will be at the panel with stars Katie Holmes...

COMIC-CON 2010: Battle: Los Angeles panel!

Sony’s first panel of the Con featured our first look at the army vs. aliens thriller BATLLE: LOS ANGELES, with Aaron Eckhart , Michelle Rodriguez , director Jonathan Liebsman and producer Neil Moritz in the house. BATTLE: LOS ANGELES The panel kicked off with a new extended trailer that starts with some text that says in February of 1942, people witnessed...

INT: Doug Jones

Despite being one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet (co-star Luke Goss said he makes him feel like a “heinous, evil human being”), it was incredibly intimidating interviewing Doug Jones. Not just because I was talking to the Silver Surfer himself, but due to the fact that the man was fully decked out as the Angel of Death…which is absolutely as terrifying as it sounds. As my nightmares...
