Edge of Tomorrow

The opening text crawl for Edge of Tomorrow, the new film with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, was “Live/Die/Repeat.” That’s the film in a nutshell — Cruise plays an Army PR guy who is thrown into combat and immediately killed. But that’s not his end; for reasons unknown to him, Cruise lives his last day over and over again. In the process he learns how to be a deadly soldier in humanity’s fight against aliens, and he also tracks down another mysterious warrior, the woman other soldiers call the Full Metal Bitch, played by Emily Blunt.

At Comic Con today, Tom Cruise was joined on stage by Blunt, director Doug Liman, and writer Christopher McQuarrie. (And they were joined by Bill Paxton, who plays a supporting role.) Cruise charmed the hell out of the crowd, through his interactions with moderator Chris Hardwick and praise for Doug Liman and Emily Blunt. In turn, his co-conspirators praised his intense work ethic, which drove Cruise to run and fight through scenes wearing a suit of armor that weighs over 100lbs.

A brief bit of footage was shown, and we’ll run down that and some of the panel info below.  Read More »

Captain America Winter Soldier Concept SDCC
Marvel Studios just unveiled the first footage from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it looked unlike anything else the company has released. We’ve heard that the film, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, would be something like a thriller, but this footage really showed off a movie that deeply integrates current interests and fears about how we’re managing national security. In short, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is from a time where political morality seemed pretty black and white, and is now dealing with a modern world in which everything is drawn in shades of grey.

The Russos and Evans were joined on stage by Scarlett Johansson, whose Black Widow plays a very big role in the film, as well as Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Emily Van Camp, Maria Hill, and Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier of the title.

We’ll give you some panel highlights and run down the footage after the break.  Read More »

Wolverine Beast X-Men Days Future Past

Earlier this year, director Bryan Singer made headlines when he revealed the 2014 sequel to X-Men First ClassX-Men: Days of Future Past, would not only bring back the First Class cast, but most of the cast from the original trilogy too. That created all kinds of questions, even though many fans are familiar with the time travel storyline of the title.

So how do you get fans excited for a film that’s over a year away and still filming? You bring the whole cast to San Diego Comic-Con‘s Hall H and present a brand new trailer that lays out some of the story. That story shows Professor X (Patrick Stewart, once James McAvoy) and Magneto (Ian McKellan, once Michael Fassbender) sending Wolverine (still Hugh Jackman) from some kind of desolate future into the past, to meet up with their younger selves, played by McAvoy and Fassbender.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is still filming, but that didn’t stop director Matt Reeves and stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke and Kerri Russell from coming to San Diego to give the Comic Con audience an early preview of the movie. The film was shooting this morning until 5am, which by that time already had thousands of people sleeping in line to get into Hall H for today’s big movie day. The cast and crew hopped on a plane and brought along an early teaser trailer.

Reeves warned that it takes ten to twelve weeks for weta to create a shot featuring fully realized apes, and since they’re still in production, the teaser only featured one such shot. After the jump you can read about what we saw in the teaser trailer, our thoughts, and what else was said during the panel.
