Mockingjay Part 2 Comic Con panel

After an hour of Bill Murray being a rock star in Hall H at Comic-Con in San Diego, things took a different turn when the Lionsgate panel began featuring The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.

Four timpani drums were rolled out on the Hall H stage, and as the players banged the drums, a stream of additional drummers entered the hall through the crowd, hitting their instruments with vigor, getting louder and louder until suddenly it was time for a message from District 13. You can watch that viral teaser right here, but now it’s time to dig into the final Comic-Con panel for The Hunger Games franchise. It was a sweet, funny, and fond farewell to the young adult sci-fi adaptation with some brief teases of what’s to come in the finale.

Mockingjay Part 2 trailer description

On Thursday, July 9th, Lionsgate stormed Hall H with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, the final chapter in the young adult sci-fi franchise. Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson were on hand for the panel, but we’ll get to that in another post.

Instead, we’d like to call your attention first to a new viral teaser featuring the crimson clad Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and a very coordinated white army. In addition, we’ll recap the full theatrical trailer for the end to the two-part finale. And considering this trailer won’t be released for a couple months, big fans of the franchise will probably want to read our description of the trailer.

Doctor Who

Whovians who braved the Hall H lines today at Comic-Con were treated to the very first look at the Doctor Who Season 9 trailer. But now everyone else gets to join in on the fun as well, as BBC America has posted the video online.

Among many, many other exciting bits and pieces, the Season 9 trailer also includes the first footage of Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams — though you’ll have to wait a little while longer to find out exactly what she’s doing there. “It’s going to be surprising, what she gets up to,” teased Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat.

Comic Con 2015 show floor photos

The entire SlashFilm crew is all over San Diego for the rest of the week, and if you’ve been paying attention to the front page, then you already know that we’re covering Comic-Con like crazy. We tossed up some photos of downtown San Diego with the buildings covered in upcoming movies and TV shows, and now we have an inside look at the show floor.

Comic-Con is massive, and it’s impossible to get pictures of everything, so we decided to just get some snapshots of things that we personally thought were cool. Whether it’s unique displays, awesome props, collectible toys, spectacular artwork, we just wanted everyone to see some of the coolest stuff from the show floor.

Sanjay's Super Team

The next computer animated short film from Pixar Animation Studios is Sanjay’s Super Team, which will be attached to The Good Dinosaur when that feature hits theaters on November 25th 2015.

Thursday at Comic Con, Pixar held a presentation called The Super Story Behind the Pixar Short Sanjay’s Super Team, which also served as the North American premiere of the short. After the jump you can find out what I thought about the film, and the backstory behind the film, which made me experience Sanjay’s Super Team on a level different from other shorts.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Conan O'Brien Mad Max

In case you didn’t know, in addition to all the geeks and nerds that have descended upon San Diego for Comic-Con this week, comedian Conan O’Brien is also here with his late night TBS talk show. It’s the first time a late night show has been recorded during the festivities, and Conan even has shows this weekend when the convention really gets busy.

Last night brought the first episode from San Diego, and with it came this fantastic cold open showing how Conan and his trusty comic sidekick Andy Richter made it to town. Hint: it’s a tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road, with Conan as the Doof Warrior with the flaming guitar and Richter as Immortan Joe. It’s just as awesome as you hope it will be.

Richard Taylor Warcraft Interview

One of the best things about Comic Con is getting up close and personal with objects and costumes designed for many films. Weta Workshop is here with artifacts from Duncan Jones‘s film Warcraft, for example. While waiting to speak to Jones at Legendary’s preview night event, I got a few minutes of private conversation with Richard Taylor, the Weta Workshop founder and creative director whose work with armor and weapons gave such weight to the Lord of the Rings movies.

The work Taylor and Weta have done for Warcraft is spectacular. You can see evidence above — that shot is of a statue of Dominic Cooper’s character King Llane Wrynn, unveiled this evening. We’ve got more shots of Weta’s armor work below, along with a nice chat with Taylor. The armor master says that new digital-enhanced techniques saved the day on Warcraft.

Taylor also brings up Krampus, from Trick R Treat director Michael Dougherty, for which he says about 80% of the effects are practical.
