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 »
Michael Mann has shot a new thriller starring Chris Hemsworth, which has most often been spoken of simply as the “Untitled Michael Mann Cyber-Thriller.” Now the film is called Blackhat (as foretold by a tweet not long ago) and Legendary debuted that title and a bit of footage today at Comic Con.

The Sony Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 could more appropriately have been titled “Goosebumps.” After a super-short mention of the upcoming Chris Columbus film Pixels, author R.L. Stine popped on screen to tell fans about Goosebumps, which opens in Summer 2015. Director Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens) showed up for the panel, along with star Jack Black, a mere two days after they wrapped production. The pair debuted some new footage and news regarding the meta storyline of the film, in which the characters from all of Stine’s Goosebumps books escape the original manuscripts.
Below, read more about the Goosebumps movie trailer and panel from San Diego Comic-Con.

Guillermo del Toro brought his own private haunted mansion to San Diego Comic-Con. One half of the Legendary Pictures booth is a snow covered gate with a huge brass family crest. The name above it? Crimson Peak. Inside in a very small, but detail filled, frightening experience designed by the man himself. Big family portraits are on the walls, the ceilings are cracked and in them you can see birds flying in the night. Two dresses from the film, each expertly detailed, bookend a shelf filled with trinkets that tell the story of the film, which opens October 16, 2015.
Below, see Crimson Peak photos from inside the exhibit and watch a video of our private tour, narrated by the man himself, Guillermo del Toro. Read More »
Our first look at the crime thriller Nightcrawler featured star Jake Gyllenhaal going through a few permutations of a job pitch to an unseen person — and despite that potentially dull setup, it was a strange, riveting piece of film thanks to Gyllenhaal’s performance. Now there’s a longer Nightcrawler trailer that shows us a lot more of Gyllenhaal’s character as he combs the nighttime streets of LA looking for lurid news. And even though we see a lot more, this trailer still leaves a lot of questions.
I love this new look at the film, and each new thing we learn about the movie helps it climb to a higher spot on the “must watch” list. Check out the Nightcrawler teaser trailer below.
