Saturday is traditionally the biggest day at San Diego Comic-Con and 2013 is no different. Four of the biggest studios will be bringing their films to Hall H. Warner Bros. has Godzilla, Seventh Son, 300: Rise of an Empire, Gravity and The Lego Movie (but no mention of future DC films), Lionsgate has I Frankenstein and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Marvel Studios brings Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 20th Century Fox is bringing…something. It’s listed at “To Be Determined” on the schedule but you’d bet it’s The Wolverine, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and maybe, hopefully, X-Men: Days of Future Past?
After the jump, check out the full schedule and some other highlights including The Sandman, The Simpsons, Kevin Smith, Hellboy and more. Read More »
Briefly: Way back when Legendary’s new Godzilla was first announced there was talk that the giant lizard of the title wouldn’t be the only monster in the movie. And while there’s still no confirmation, more materials now say that we can expect more beasts than the title monster. A press release trumpeting the marketing opportunities for the film describes the movie:
Featuring spectacular creatures, thrilling action, epic battles and a legendary monster, Godzilla provides the backbone for a monstrous merchandise offering for fans of all ages and enables compelling cross-category opportunities across mass and specialty retailers.
Even Roland Emmerich’s Godzilla had the brood of young lizards; let’s hope this reboot has something more interesting, and that the other “creatures” will show up in more than toy and video game form. After the break, see a new promo image caught in the wild at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. Appropriately, the pic shows Vegas in flames, presumably after an attack from a huge monster. Read More »

In the next two years, Legendary Pictures is releasing two films in which giant monsters lay waste to cities. First up is Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, out July 12. In it, the humans have built giant robots called Jaegers to battle giant alien monsters called Kaiju. Then, in 2014, the company will release a new version of the film that brought the very concept of the kaiju to global popularity: Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla, which is now in production.
As more and more studios think about team-up films such as The Avengers and Justice League, the possibility of some kind of new monster crossover seems obvious. Especially since it would hold true to the film history of Godzilla. There are no immediate plans for anything like this, but, Guillermo Del Toro loves the idea. Read his quote below. Read More »
