The SlashFilm crew has arrived here at Comic-Con 2015. Even though the convention doesn’t get into full swing until tomorrow, Preview Night kicks off the nerd festivities tonight, and San Diego is already decked out with plenty of promotional materials.
To kick off the next few days of coverage, we went around downtown San Diego and took snapshots of all the marketing and hype that surrounds convention attendees while they try to get their hands on their favorite collectibles, see sneak peeks of forthcoming movies and new TV shows, and just geek out and freak out.
Below you’ll find promo images and set-ups for Fox’s new Minority Report series, the new video game LEGO Dimensions, The Peanuts Movie, Adult Swim’s Rick & Morty, NBC’s Heroes Reborn, AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead and more. Check out our Comic-Con 2015 photos after the jump! Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Steven Spielberg big screen adaptation of Robopocalypse has been in the works for years now. The script was being developed by Spielberg and Drew Goddard based on the Daniel H. Wilson novel. Actors such as Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw were all said to be in line for roles in the film about “a global war between man and machine.” In 2012 it was supposed to be the filmmaker’s next movie, but in early 2013 the film was pushed back to development status with no indication of what the future might hold.
We’ve gotten numerous updates on the big blockbuster film over the years, all of which insist that Spielberg will eventually get to the movie, someday. We’ve even gotten a glimpse at possible storyboards for robot chase sequence from the film. Today, we get another glimpse at the movie, in the form of concept art. Hit the jump to take a look.

Last week director Paul Feig revealed images of the new gear that Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones would be wearing in the reboot of Ghostbusters. We got a glimpse of the new jumpsuits and also the proton packs they’ll be wearing, though we haven’t seen the stars suited up just yet.
But Ghostbusters fans are eager to get suited up in the new gear on their own as they’ve been asking Feig on Twitter to get a better look at the proton packs, so they can build their own. And Feig is a pretty nice guy, so he provided some new images with some helpful specs about the size of the neutrino wand and the pack itself. See the Ghostbusters reboot proton pack images below!

Universal is launching four new posters today for Guillermo del Toro‘s film Crimson Peak, and we’ve got the one-sheet featuring Mia Wasikowska as Edith Cushing. The red and blue light on this image gives it a great Suspiria vibe, and the use of butterfly wing imagery is both strange and beautiful. Check out the full poster below. Read More »
Pixar has two films in theaters in 2015, which really means the studio has four films: two features, and two shorts. November 25 sees the release of The Good Dinosaur, which will be preceded by the short Sanjay’s Super Team.
We’ve seen some concept art from the short (such as the image above), created by Pixar Animation Studios artist Sanjay Patel. Inspired by Patel’s own experience, the short features a boy who is more interested in cartoons than his family’s religious practices, but who ultimately envisions the Hindu gods Hanuman, Durga, and Vishnu, as a sort of Avengers-like super-team.
Now the first Sanjay’s Super Team images are out, and you can see them below. Read More »
