Sin City 2 Final Poster header

UPDATE: We’ve added the new, red band Sin City: A Dame to Kill For to this post, which played at the end of the panel. 

Robert Rodriguez and Comic Con go together like Spielberg and sharks. The two are forever linked because of the memorable panels he’s had on multiple films, primarily the first Sin City. Well Rodriguez was back this year with Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Damn to Kill For and he brought along his co-director and three of the film’s stars: Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson and Jessica Alba.

They showed a huge chunk of the beginning of the film, “Just Another Saturday Night,” and did a very interesting Q&A. Below, read a description of the opening scene and five cool things we learned at the Sin City 2 Comic Con panel. Read More »

Star Wars Rebels header

One of the biggest mysteries regarding the new Disney cartoon Star Wars Rebels hasn’t had anything to do with Jedi, Sith, or new characters. We’ve just been wondering when we’d get to see it. At Comic-Con, the news was quietly leaked that the first episode (for which you can watch our full review here) will premiere in October 2014. Lucasfilm and Disney have not settled on a specific Star Wars Rebels release date just yet, but will do so in the new few weeks. That premiere will be in October, on the Disney Channel, before moving to its regular spot on Disney XD. Below, read more about Star Wars Rebels and watch a few new clips. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino hateful eight

Quentin Tarantino called off his plans to make The Hateful Eight the moment we found out about them, but over the past few months it seems like he’s slowly been warming to the project once more. Then this weekend at Comic-Con, he finally confirmed that the film is back on.

And this being Tarantino, of course he doesn’t just have one project in the works. He also revealed that he’s mulling over a sci-fi project, though it’s in its early stages still. Hit the jump to get the dirt.

Ant-Man confirms Yellowjacket

Two years ago in Hall H, we got our first peek at some test footage from Ant-Man. This year, we finally got a taste of the real thing. Kevin Feige, Peyton Reed, Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, and Evangeline Lilly took the stage to promote their new film, dishing up new details and footage.

Among other things, we finally got confirmation that Stoll would be playing Darren Cross a.k.a. Yellowjacket, and that Lilly would be playing Hank Pym’s daughter Hope Pym. Hit the jump to find out what else we learned, and to get the details.

Homer Simpson Hologram

A special guest beamed into The Simpsons panel this year at San Diego Comic Con International. Homer Simpson appeared on stage in holographic form, interacting with Simpsons creator Matt Groening, lampooning the unorganized convention and location, while also taking a bit of time to answer the obvious Q & A questions from the crowd. Homer also forces his unwilling creator to dance for the fans in the audience. I’m pretty sure they are using the same technology as the Tupac Shakur hologram appearance which went viral. Hit the jump to watch the Homer Simpson Hologram video now.
