Comic Con: Crimson Peak panel with Guillermo del Toro, plus Hellboy 3 update

No one's a rock star at San Diego Comic-Con quite like Guillermo del Toro. Perhaps it's because everyone knows the man as one big geek himself, combined with his affable personality, limitless enthusiasm and his tendency to pepper every sentence with colorful profanity.

So the news that he may next helm a big budget adaptation of the classic David Carradine TV series KUNG FU doesn't shock me in the least. KUNG FU is...

Godzilla and Jersey Boys land a pair of promising release dates

I almost wish we could have a combination movie called GODZILLA BOYS.  Almost.  *cue "Jersey Godzilla/Jersy Shore" jokes* Then again, title combo isn't really all that relevant as the release dates for these two flicks are about six months apart, one being a tentpole summer event movie and the other being a holiday family event.
