Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Poster header 2

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens in theaters very soon, but Paramount still wanted to prove to Comic-Con that after years and years of controversy, they’ve made a winner. According to co-creator Kevin Eastman, the movie is “absolutely fantastic” and to prove it the producers (Andrew Form and Brad Fuller), director (Jonathan Liebsman) and stars (Megan Fox and Will Arnett) showed up to present not one, but two extended clips from the film. Each one was a big action sequence that gave a much better idea than the trailers of the look, attitude and tone of the movie, and the Turtles themselves. Below, read about the two Ninja Turtles scenes with some impressions. Read More »

Kingsman The Secret Service (8)

Months and months of speculation were answered Friday night at Comic-Con when Mark Hamill finally appeared on screen. It was not, however, for that little sci-fi movie he’s making. It was to introduce a new clip from Kingsman: The Secret Service, Matthew Vaughn‘s latest film adaptation of a Mark Millar written comic book. Hamill has a small role in one of the film’s opening scenes and they played the whole thing during the panel. Read about the Kingsman: The Secret Service Comic Con panel below. Read More »

Everly

The Hall H lineup tends to consist of movies that are already getting a lot of hype, but every year there are a few under-the-radar projects that get their moment in the sun as well. One of the latter this year was Everly, described by director Joe Lynch as “Die Hard in a room.” Which I suppose makes Salma Hayek Bruce WIllis.

The action-packed thriller follows a woman who’s stuck in her apartment as her mob boss ex sends thugs to torment and kill her. The Everly Comic-Con panel included the first footage from the film, involving gangsters, grenades, and guns a-plenty. Hit the jump for our Everly footage description and Everly Comic-Con panel highlights.

Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel

Over 6,000 Game of Thrones fans were in attendance at the show’s Comic-Con panel on Friday, held in the notorious Hall H. But that still leaves millions of Game of Thrones fans who weren’t, whether because they couldn’t hack the Hall H line or because they weren’t in San Diego at all. Fortunately, they don’t have to be left out of the fun.

A video recording of the entire Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel has just hit the web, featuring George R.R. Martin and several of the stars. Now all you need to get the full the Game of Thrones Comic-Con experience is to stand outside on the sidewalk for six hours before you watch it. Watch the panel — or just read our rundown of the highlights — after the jump.
