I’m not sure if /Film readers are looking forward to The Maze Runner, as it might look like another young adult book adaptation. But the footage that was screened at Comic Con surprised those in attendance, and I think it will we will all be pleasantly surprised by the film when its released.
We’ve been following filmmaker Wes Ball since the release of his computer animated short film Ruin a couple years ago. (He has a deal with Fox to eventually make a big screen adaptation of the short.) Ball is part of a new generation of filmmakers who display a mastery of computer-generated imagery and know how to use it as part of the filmmaking toolset. Yesterday the filmmaker went on a mini-rant on Twitter about how he believes audiences are ready for a fully-CG computer-animated feature film for adults, and how he wants to see a “photographic” quality computer-animated feature. He even teased a project he’s been working on for some time. Check out some concept art, a poster and a concept pitch teaser trailer for Wes Ball‘s In Search Of Humans. Learn more, after the jump.

Guardians of the Galaxy opens Friday and hopefully you are making plans to see it. It’s truly a fun ride, jam-packed with awesomeness. However, one scene in particular is extra packed with neat stuff. That’s Benicio Del Toro‘s big scene, in which he appears as the Collector. As his name suggests, the Collector has a lot of different things in his room. Both director James Gunn and producer Kevin Feige told us to be on the lookout for some exciting Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Eggs during the scene.
Below, read their quotes about the scene which include some minor, non-plot related spoilers. Read More »

The movie I Origins, now in theaters, isn’t called that just to be clever. Writer/director Mike Cahill originally sold a film called I to Fox Searchlight, but it was too big to make at the time. So he looked at the backstory to that film and made I Origins in hopes that he’d eventually get to make I. That struggle is detailed at this link.
Now that the movie has opened in a good amount of theaters (and hopefully some of you checked it out) we wanted to dig deep into some spoilers. Specifically, how the end credits tag of I Origins (yes, there’s mind blowing, must-see Nick Fury tag on the film) would directly lead into I. Below, read what Cahill had to say about how about the super spoilery coda scene leads directly into I. Read More »
Most people don’t know where Disney XD is on their television channel lineup, but that’s going to change soon. That’s not only where Star Wars Rebels will debut later this year, but also the home for a Guardians of the Galaxy animated show. There’s no word on exactly when it’ll air, but it’s a show that’s been in the works for a while. The characters have been appearing on other Marvel Animation shows for some time in preparation.
With the announcement, about one minute of footage was screened at Comic Con, and we have a description of the debut. Read more about the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series below and watch the full Marvel Animation Panel. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Comic Con fans got a preview of The Maze Runner, directed by Wes Ball based on the book by James Dashner, and the fans loved it. Now there’s a new Maze Runner trailer, which delves a bit deeper into the story of a young guy named Thomas (Dylan O’Brien of MTV’s Teen Wolf) who finds himself in the Glade, a wholly unusual community in the middle of a massive labyrinth. There he and the other boys similarly exiled try to survive and escape the maze. Things get more complicated when Teresa (Kaya Scodelario of Skins) shows up. She’s the first woman to arrive in the Glade, and she already knows Thomas. Read More »
