The entire SlashFilm crew is all over San Diego for the rest of the week, and if you’ve been paying attention to the front page, then you already know that we’re covering Comic-Con like crazy. We tossed up some photos of downtown San Diego with the buildings covered in upcoming movies and TV shows, and now we have an inside look at the show floor.
Comic-Con is massive, and it’s impossible to get pictures of everything, so we decided to just get some snapshots of things that we personally thought were cool. Whether it’s unique displays, awesome props, collectible toys, spectacular artwork, we just wanted everyone to see some of the coolest stuff from the show floor.

July 4th weekend is always a bankable one at the box office. There’s always some kind of major release hitting the big screen to get people as they enjoy some time off for Independence Day, and people flock to theaters to see stuff they missed from the previous weeks or just to see something again with their friends and family.
This past weekend, Jurassic World dominated the box office for a fourth weekend in a row, edging out Pixar’s Inside Out again and keeping Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys down as well. Those are some big offerings, but back in the summer of 1985, the line-up of movies available in theaters, according to a newspaper clipping, was both impressive and much different as far as the variety of offerings.

Just about everyone in the known world loves Back to the Future, but one town in Kansas may have even the most fervent fans beat. The City of Augusta has decided to officially rename itself “Hill Valley” in honor of the film’s 30th anniversary.
Granted, it’s a temporary switch. Hill Valley will revert to its original name of Augusta after 24 hours. Still, how many Back to the Future fans do you know who would be willing to legally change their names to show their love? More about the Back to the Future Hill Valley name change after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Last night at the Hollywood Bowl, the record was broken for the largest Back to the Future screening. An estimated crowd of over 16,000 people watched the film on the big screen, accompanied by live orchestration.
As you know, I’m a huge Back to the Future fan, so of course I was in attendance for the monumental event. After the jump you can find more information, alongside my thoughts and also some photos and video of the event.

Don’t expect to go back to Back to the Future anytime soon. Despite the current craze for rebooting ’80s and ’90s hits, Robert Zemeckis has unequivocally shot down any talk of a Back to the Future remake. Read the Back to the Future remake comments after the jump. Read More »
The week before Jurassic World hit theaters, I was able to get mega-producer Frank Marshall on the phone to talk not only about the new Jurassic Park sequel/reboot, but about a variety of other topics as well.
During the conversation we discussed the idea of weaponized dinosaurs, how he came to produce this movie (which has something to do with Star Wars), the cynical online fanboy reaction throughout the development, the Amblin feel of the movie, how the project evolved from earlier drafts, why the previous screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are still credited on the film after Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connelly did a page one rewrite, the battle of practical vs. cg effects, planning for further sequels, Spielberg’s idea for trained raptors, how Jimmy Buffet ended up in the movie, if Universal Studios will be making a Jurassic World ride for their parks.
I ask him about some of the projects he has on his plate, which include new Bourne movies, a big-screen adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, and Indiana Jones 5. I also ask about the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, a film for which Marshall acted as producer and second unit director. (I got some details on that latter gig.) All this and more is in my Frank Marshall interview, which you can read after the jump.
