Set Visit: Wall-E!!

Traversing the premises of Pixar is a surreal experience to say the least. It's a bit like exploring Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, but without the creepy orange midgets that break into song. The studio has such a colorful, laidback atmosphere; simply being there gets you excited. And yes, the fact that they create easily the best kid-friendly entertainment on the planet certainly...

CON: Journey 3D

JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH 3D There were exactly two things I got from WonderCon's panel of JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH 3D: the movie looks like crap, and Brendan Fraser is kind of a dumbass. Read on to find out why... FOOTAGE Featurette - Nothing interesting here. Just your run-of-the-mill promotional "making-of" documentary, featuring clips...

CON: Shutter

SHUTTER I almost feel bad for Rachael Taylor (the Australian scientist chick from TRANSFORMERS) and James Kyson Lee (Ando from Heroes), who showed up to promote their film SHUTTER at WonderCon, only to be greeted with the laughter of an impatient audience eager to observe the X-FILES 2 panel immediately following. The reason I say "almost", though, is because SHUTTER looks...

CON: Get Smart

GET SMART A very excited audience erupted in ear-shattering applause for GET SMART's WonderCon panel this past Saturday, with Steve Carrel, Anne Hathaway, and director Peter Segal taking the stage to answer some questions, and of course, talk about what's happening to The Office. FOOTAGE New Trailer - This trailer actually gave me hope for the film, making...

CON: 10,000 BC

10,000 BC Camilla Belle, Steven Strait, and director Roland Emmerich came down for Saturday's 10,000 BC WonderCon panel to discuss the movie and offer up an extended trailer for the film. FOOTAGE Extended Trailer - This extension of the regular trailer shows a little more of the story and what other type of action set pieces audiences can expect. It starts...

CON: Wall-E

WALL-E Director Andrew Stanton, the man behind FINDING NEMO, came down Saturday for WonderCon to show off some clips from Pixar's latest movie WALL-E, and to answer some questions from the audience. FOOTAGE Clip 1 - Much like the trailer, this first clip starts out with WALL-E getting ready to work on an average. He powers on and makes an old Mac start-up...

CON: Prince Caspian

PRINCE CASPIAN There wasn't much worth noting during WonderCon's PRINCE CASPIAN panel, with the only person coming onto the stage to answer questions being KNB creature supervisor Howard Berger. They also showed a montage of unfinished footage from the film, but that wasn't anything spectacular either. FOOTAGE Clip Montage - This 5-minute presentation was...

CON: X-Files 2

X-FILES 2 Fans were delirious with applause during this past Saturday's WonderCon panel for X-FILES 2, as David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, co-writer/director Chris Carter, and co-writer Frank Spotnitz arrived on stage and showed off some footage from the film. FOOTAGE Nothing too elaborate. Basically just a teaser. Trailer - Dozens of FBI agents walk...

CON: Forgetting Sarah Marshall

FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL A whole slew of cast and crew from producer Judd Apatow's latest, FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, came down Friday for WonderCon to share entertaining stories and anecdotes with the audience, as well as a lengthy collection of clips from the film. Among the talent were Jason Segel, Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis, Russell Brand, Jack McBrayer, director Nicholas...

CON: Wanted!!

WANTED It's still debatable at this point whether WANTED is going to be any good or not, but James McAvoy came down to WonderCon along with a full scene from the film to help audiences decided which side of the fence they should be on. Read on to find out where I ended up. FOOTAGE Director Timur Bekmambetov (NIGHT WATCH, DAY WATCH) couldn't be at the panel,...

CON: Iron Man

IRON MAN As if there wasn't reason enough to be excited about IRON MAN , the always genial Jon Favreau headed over to WonderCon this past Saturday to premiere a ton of kickass footage and answer some burning questions regarding the film. FOOTAGE First up were three clips from the movie, featuring Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) developing and testing various...
