At the end of the Legendary panel, studio head Thomas Tull returned to the stage to thank the fans and show off one last thing. The surprise is the announcement of a new King Kong movie titled Skull Island. Thomas Tull announced that they had “been tinkering around with one thing” and showed us some footage for a project that may be a long way out.

Because The Road Warrior is one of the best and most pure action films ever made, we’ve been clocking the development of Fury Road for years. Our first coverage was back in 2008, and the announcement that Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy could be in the film dates back to ’09. News that director George Miller has written not one, but two sequels goes back to 2011.
So the Comic Con appearance of Mad Max: Fury Road was a great pleasure. The fact that the film was among the most striking things we saw at SDCC 2014 was even more impressive; after all those years in development, who knew what to expect? We’ve shown you the trailer, and now you can watch the whole Fury Road press conference, in which Miller and producer Doug Mitchell discuss the film’s development, story, and production. We’ve also gone back to a TV appearance Miller did several years ago, talking about the film. Read More »

One of the more appealing panels at Comic Con this year was organized around Fight Club. It featured novel author Chuck Palahniuk and film director David Fincher talking about the film, and the comic book sequel. Of course, it’s also one of the panels we were unable to attend, but that’s OK. The whole thing is available as an audio stream, and in very good quality. Listen to the full Fight Club Comic Con panel below, thanks to Jeff Goldsmith. Read More »
After two movies filled with massive sci-fi action, it seems Neill Blomkamp is going a bit more emotional for his latest film. Sony very quietly kicked off the marketing campaign for Chappie at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, with a big banner and a window cling handed to fans as they walked by the booth. Most fans were confused by the swag, which shows a rudimentary drawing of two parents, one holding a gun, alongside a robot. But it’s an incredibly intriguing image for the March 2015 release, which stars Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley as the title character. See the Chappie Comic Con swag and read more below. Read More »
Just having gotten home from San Diego, I’m not sure which film excited me the most at 2014 San Diego Comic Con International. Mad Max: Fury Road was definitely the biggest surprise in terms of footage. Avengers: Age of Ultron and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice owned the majority of my conversations. While the Marvel footage was as expected, it was great. The Batman v Superman footage showed us a big screen Batman that we’ve never seen before and the Wonder Woman first look photo had everyone talked, in the hall and online. So which movies had the online community talking the most? General Sentiment, a social media analysis firm, has sent me their findings. See a list of the highest 2014 Comic Con buzz after the jump.

We would’ve loved to see everything Mondo had in store for San Diego Comic-Con 2014 last week when it was still available, but that’s not how Mondo works. Besides that one piece we showed, almost none of what the company had planned was revealed until they wanted it to be. That meant fans stood in line at the convention for hours, totally unaware what they were waiting in line for. That’s the power of Mondo but now that it’s all over, the world can finally see everything that was sold (and mostly sold out) at Comic Con.
This year, Mondo focused most of their releases on this week’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Each member of the team got their own individual poster, culminating in the reveal of a full poster by Tyler Stout (his first such release in many months). Luckily, that’ll surely be on sale online later this week and some of the below posters could make it online too. After the jump, see them all, including Ghost in the Shell, Batman 66, The Last of Us and more. Read More »
