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 »
By now, you’ve probably seen the trailer for Kevin Smith‘s Tusk. And if not, click here and check it out. Revealed in Smith’s annual Hall H panel at Comic-Con, the footage shows a very different Smith from the “snoochie boochies” days of the past. This is a Smith with something messed up to say. And, according to the writer/director/podcaster, he’s going to be saying much more of it.
On his panel, Smith also revealed Tusk is the first film in what he hopes will be a trilogy of films he called “The True North Trilogy.” Likely a reference to a similar Canadian setting, Tusk would be followed by Yoga Hosers (which Smith wants to make next, and be PG-13) and a new movie called Moose Jaws which he described as “Jaws, with a moose.” All three films would return the same actors as Tusk.

The Sony Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 could more appropriately have been titled “Goosebumps.” After a super-short mention of the upcoming Chris Columbus film Pixels, author R.L. Stine popped on screen to tell fans about Goosebumps, which opens in Summer 2015. Director Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens) showed up for the panel, along with star Jack Black, a mere two days after they wrapped production. The pair debuted some new footage and news regarding the meta storyline of the film, in which the characters from all of Stine’s Goosebumps books escape the original manuscripts.
