Legendary Pictures has big plans for their “gigantic monsters with recognizable names throwing each other into buildings” slate. Kong: Skull Island had a trailer at Comic-Con before it even had a director (Jordan Vogt-Roberts is currently shooting the film). A sequel to 2014’s Godzilla was announced right as the first movie hit theaters, and we later learned that it will feature a plethora of beasties for the King of the Monsters fight.

Naturally, that meant the announcement of Godzilla vs King Kong movie… and it turns out that Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull had slightly selfish reasons for all of these machinations.

Reilly, Toby Kebbell, and Straight Outta Compton breakouts Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell. (Told you it was a fantastic lineup.)

September seems a bit early to start getting swept up in the holiday spirit, but we’ll let Krampus slide. Especially since we’re totally terrified of him. Universal and Legendary have just released the first domestic trailer for the new horror-comedy by Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat), about a sort of anti-Santa who visits families that have been more naughty than nice.

Director Duncan Jones has been coming to Comic Con with Warcraft for three years now. With the movie finally set to arrive in theaters just under a year from now, Comic-Con finally got a first look at some official footage from the video game adaptation, and it’s definitely something to talk about.
The footage on display has simultaneously some of the most beautiful visual effects footage I’ve ever seen, along with some of the most niche, heavy-fantasy, somewhat confusing story elements in recent memory. As someone who hasn’t ever dove into the world of Warcraft, I’ll do my best to break down what we saw in Hall H.

Out of all the words in that headline, it’s “Legendary Pictures” that should grab your attention. Sure you know Rob McElhenney. He’s the co-writer, co-star and co-creator of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. And Figment, well, that could be anything. But “Legendary Pictures” has a certain connotation. They make big tentpole movies, so it’s very intriguing to hear that McElhenney has signed a deal to write and direct his feature debut with the company. What’s even better is that Figment is a big family adventure. Read more below. Read More »
