During the 20th Century Fox panel at Comic-Con 2013, the audience was told something totally unique was going to take place. No, they weren’t talking about the appearance of the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past. They were talking about a massive, massive photo that would supposedly include every single person in the nearly 7,000 person room.
The photo has now been released. Check it out below. Read More »

Comic Con is too large of an event for celebrities to actually walk the show floor, but that doesn’t stop some of them from trying. Justin Timberlake once walked Comic-Con dressed as a ‘Sesame Street’ character years ago. Many other actors have famously thrown on a Stormtrooper helmet and walked the show floor with just a half-assed cosplay presentation — so if you ever see someone who just threw on a mask and it looks like they didn’t try hard enough, ask yourself which actor might possibly be hiding in plain sight. Michael Cera just threw on a fierce-looking Gorilla mask one year.
This year, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, Doctor Who‘s eleventh doctor Matt Smith and The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman are among the actors we know who donned a disguise and walked the show floor this year. After the jump you can see how they did it.

Bad Robot just tweeted an image of three mystery scripts “hot off the presses.” Of course, the fanboy in all of us immediately thinks, “Is that Star Wars Episode VII?” Unfortunately, the Bad Robot Twitter account knows that too so, odds are, it’s not. But’s it’s still pretty cool to see the level of secrecy Bad Robot goes through to protect their words. Check out the full image below. Read More »

Briefly: After Wednesday’s devastating news of the passing of James Gandolfini, fans flocked to Holsten’s Ice Cream Shop in Bloomfield, NJ to pay tribute to the late actor. Holsten’s was the location of the iconic final scene of Gandolfini’s show, The Sopranos. To honor the actor, the shop’s owner did something incredibly classy.

Wolverine and Beast are looking stylish on the set of Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past. The director tweeted a photo of both characters, played by Hugh Jackman and Nicholas Hoult, in full ’70s regalia on the set of the 2014 film. The caption? “Welcome to 1973.”
This seems to answer one of the more interesting questions about the time-travelling narrative, which is where the immortal Wolverine would appear. (Though we may see an “older” version of the character as well.) Check it out below. Read More »

This past weekend marked the ten year anniversary of production on Shaun of the Dead. The film not only launched the film career of its writer/director Edgar Wright (who’s making a Marvel movie for crying out loud!), but its two stars as well. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, previously best known for a little show called Spaced, have since become household faces and names thanks to turns in movies like Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, Attack the Block and Snow White and the Huntsman.
The trio also have their latest collaboration coming soon. The World’s End puts a period on not only Shaun, but Hot Fuzz as well. So it seems like a good time to look back with fondness on the birth of this whole thing.
To do so, Edgar Wright has begun to post behind the scenes photos – some of which have never been seen before – from the production of Shaun of the Dead. Every day for the next month of so (Monday marks day three already), Wright will explain what was happening on the set of Shaun on this day, exactly 10 years ago, complete with a shot list.

The mystery of which other summer film Edgar Wright directed a shot in has been solved. Earlier this summer, the Scott Pilgrim director teased that he directed one shot in a summer film this year that wasn’t his own. On Thursday Wright, fresh off a brand new trailer for The World’s End, took to Twitter to reveal the film in question was indeed Star Trek Into Darkness.
Wright posted a photo from the J.J. Abrams set, which looks like it takes place on Kronos, the Klingon home planet, with an IMAX camera. In the film, Kirk, Spock and Uhura find more than they bargained for on Kronos, both in the locals and also the evil John Harrison. Check it out below. Read More »
