Please Note: This post will be Sticky’d to the top of /Film until Saturday night.
The /Film crew is gearing up for San Diego Comic Con 2013, which officially begins Thursday morning (but has a show floor preview night on Wednesday). Traveling to San Diego will be Russ Fischer, Germain Lussier, Angie Han, Christopher Stipp and myself – Peter Sciretta (Stipp are not covering the Con for /Film).
- Coverage: We’ll be covering all the interesting movie and tv events at the convention, so stay tuned to /Film for extensive coverage.
- Meet-Up: Ever wanted to meet your favorite /Film writers in person? We’ll be holding the fourth annual /Film Comic-Con Meetup on Saturday night at 10 PM at the Marriott Marina Hotel At The Marina Kitchen, left of the Marriott lobby and right off the escalator. The Marriott Marina is the hotel located next to the convention center on the right. It is a chill time to chat with fellow /Film readers, movie geeks, and meet some of the /Film crew. Please join us for a casual drink. The meet-up was moved to Friday as there is a conflicting screening scheduled during our usual post-Wednesday preview night timeslot. Our friends from FirstShowing and Screenrant will also be joining us as well, and you never know who else might also show up. Watch for updates on our twitter feeds (mine is @slashfilm).

Warner Bros. has been trying to get Wonder Woman to the big screen for years, and they’re finally on the verge of success. The catch? She’ll be rendered in Lego bricks rather than flesh and blood.
We’ve known for some time that Lego Batman and Superman would appear in the upcoming The Lego Movie, played by Will Arnett and Channing Tatum, respectively. During today’s Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller and co-director Chris McKay revealed that they’d also be joined by Justice League teammates Lego Wonder Woman, voiced by Cobie Smulders, and Green Lantern, voiced by Jonah Hill. Hit the jump for more updates from the panel.

Alfonso Cuaron both likes, and dislikes, the teaser trailer for his upcoming film Gravity. He told Hall H at Comic-Con a trailer full of explosions doesn’t really tell the true story of the movie. He said the movie is a very intense, emotional journey that puts the viewer in an immersive experience. Hopefully, that experience should make them feel like they’re floating in space. Plus, there’s no sound in space, so you can’t hear any explosions.
To illustrate, he showed a several minute long, long take featuring stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock at the moment where they realize this trip into space is not going to go well. The shot sweeps all over their ship. Down, around, upside down, all leading up to a rogue, debris field that’ll crash with the astronauts and send Bullock’s character off into space. To say the shot was intense and scary would be an understatement.

Green skies, a barren desert. Close up on a pair of eyes, and a slow pan down to a huge sword.
At Comic-Con Saturday morning, Legendary revealed a first look at what Duncan Jones‘ Warcraft could be. Based on the popular video game World of Warcraft, the director of Moon will start shooting early next year. He called the opportunity a dream come true and is well aware how connected people are to the games. The footage shown, which is not online, just gave an idea of what audiences can expect with the adaptation. Think a mixture of classic Western with video game tropes. Read a more detailed description below. Read More »
Last year at Comoc Con, Legendary Entertainment surprised the crowd with a very early teaser trailer for Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla.

Read all about it, and find what was said on the panel, after the jump.

When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014, it will be the fifth straight Spider-Man movie set in New York. Knowing that, a fan at San Diego Comic-Con asked star Andrew Garfield what other famous Spider-Man comic book stories he’d like to see on screen. Garfield said, “I’d like to see him with The Avengers…but I’m not supposed to say that.” The crowd went wild.
It was just one of the many awesome things discussed during the panel. Director Marc Webb explained how the first film was meant to set up multiple movies and that Rhino (Paul Giamatti) is mostly in this one to establish a fun tone. Dane DeHaan talked about Harry Osborn’s complicated relationships with Peter Parker and Norman Osborn while Jamie Foxx spoke about Electro’s costume and origin. Oh – and they screened about 3 minutes of never before seen footage. Read about the footage here, and hit the jump for everything else. Read More »
