Who said you need something as silly as footage featuring actors and such to put together a trailer? The first teaser trailer for The Defenders was revealed at Marvel and Netflix‘s Comic-Con panel earlier today, giving all of the superhero junkies in the crowd their first taste of the miniseries that will see Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage team up. But it’s just a tiny taste: the show won’t even arrive for another year at the earliest and we know this because it was also announced that the series will premiere sometime in 2017.

In news that really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, Netflix and Marvel have officially renewed Daredevil for a third season. Considering how big of a success the series has been, this was inevitable – there are people out there with no interest in superheroes or comic books who seem to dig the small screen adventures of Matt Murdock, blind lawyer and self-loathing vigilante. However, you shouldn’t get too excited. A new season is at least a year away and that’s if we’re being optimistic.

Mike Colter made his Marvel universe debut as the unbreakable Luke Cage last year in Jessica Jones, but this fall he’ll get to grab the spotlight all for himself. Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel TV and Netflix unveiled the very first Luke Cage teaser trailer. The series also stars Mahershala Ali as Cornell Stokes, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Theo Rossi as Shades, Frank Whaley as Scarfe, and Simone Missick as Misty Knight. Watch the first Luke Cage teaser below. Read More »
If you cornered me in a dark alley and forced me to name the five greatest characters in all of fiction, I can’t say who would fill out the complete list. However, I can see with utmost confidence that one of them would Spock, the Vulcan science officer so memorably played by Leonard Nimoy in the original Star Trek series and eight subsequent movies. I’ve already gone on the record about what Star Trek and the character of Spock mean to me, but I know I’m not alone. For a character who lived a life intentionally free of emotion, he sure had a way of cutting straight to your heart.
Nimoy died last year, but his son Adam Nimoy is paying tribute to his legacy (and honoring the 50th anniversary of Star Trek in general) with the new documentary For the Love of Spock, which is set to open soon after making the festival rounds over the past year. You probably don’t have to be a Trek fan to get a little misty-eyed at the new trailer.

Since his creation as a comic book store newsletter mascot in 1986, the character of The Tick has never left the hands of creator Ben Edlund. By 1988, Edlund was writing and drawing the adventures of this blue-suited superhero in a self-published comic book. In 1994, he created an animated series based on the character and his ensemble of enemies and allies that ran for three seasons. In 2001, he created a short-lived but beloved live action TV show, with the great Patrick Warburton filling out the suit. Now, The Tick and Edlund are back and heading to Amazon’s pilot season, where subscribers can watch the first episode of new shows that are under consideration for full season pick-ups and cast their votes on which pilots they enjoy the most.
While you won’t be able to sample the show until next month, you can take a first look at Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick, whose new costume is…a little tight in a few key areas.

There are a few instances where it’s okay to tell your kids to give up on their dreams. For example, if a child dreams of being a dinosaur, you should probably have a gentle conversation about realistic expectations. Before I Wake proposes another more literal take on this parental dilemma: what if your kid’s nightmares began manifesting in reality and started trying to jump scare you to death?
The Before I Wake trailer gets right down to business. There’s a creepy kid (played by Room‘s Jacob Tremblay), an even creepier dead kid, Thomas Jane and Kate Bosworth looking increasingly concerned about their predicament, and a whole bunch of gross things suddenly popping up on screen.

Following the panel for DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, the animation studio decided to surprise the audience with the first footage from their forthcoming comedy The Boss Baby, starring Alec Baldwin, making his first appearance at Comic-Con.
The Boss Baby is inspired by the idea that when a new baby arrives at home, he’s basically the boss of the household with everyone’s schedule adjusting to what the baby wants whenever they want it. But the story takes that concept to a fantastical extreme as the baby acts like a no-nonsense, abrasive corporate executive, made all the better by the voice of Alec Baldwin, essentially bringing his 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy, mixed with his Glengarry Glen Ross character, to life as an animated baby.
So how was the footage shown during The Boss Baby Comic-Con panel? Find out after the jump along with an interesting detail about how the filmmakers decided to have Alec Baldwin take the titular role. Read More »
Oliver Stone‘s Snowden may seem like an odd fit for Comic-Con, but the controversial filmmaker and his cast took the stage at Hall H earlier today to premiere a new trailer for his Edward Snowden biopic and engage an audience of nerds on topics that are a bit more heated than your average pop culture discussion. The full panel was apparently a weird one (for starters, Stone said that Pokemon Go was a big step toward totalitarianism), but movie itself looks like a fairly straightforward examination of Snowden and his controversial actions. This movie is going to ruin a few family dinners no matter its stance on its subject, so start arming yourself for the inevitable screaming match between you and the people you love by watching the new trailer below.

DreamWorks Animation brought their trippy animated musical adventure Trolls to Comic-Con this year. As we’ve seen in the trailers, it’s a feature film adaptation of the wild-haired dolls that became popular in the 1990s, and it brings a bunch of pop music hits to the big screen with a so many bright colors, weird characters and creatures, all making for a delightful acid trip that’s safe for kids.
The studio showed off about 15 minutes of footage from the movie, and I was surprised to find that this wasn’t just a showcase for a bunch of pop songs for no reason. Instead, it’s a musical where the songs really motivate the story and help develop the characters. Plus, the original songs executive produced by Justin Timberlake are bound to be favorites of kids and adults alike.
Read more about the Trolls Comic-Con panel after the jump, including some additions to the cast that just might get you even more interested in an animated movie that looks truly original despite being based on a toyline. Read More »
