Note: This article was posted live from Comic Con during the panel. So please excuse us if we dont go into many details on some stories. I’m typing as fast and accurately as we can. :)

6,500 people have packed the big exhibition hall (which looks like a very large warehouse or airport hanger) for the Paramount panel. Before the panel we got the usual lecture about not video taping the video and photo presentations. Apparently last year a few things turned up on YouTube. Te program director warns us that if this keeps happening that the studio will stop bringing the great footage to the con.

They announced this year that the questions will be screened ahead of time. And if someone starts asking a question that is not the question that was screened, they will press the kill switch and the person will be removed. I’m wondering if this is just to protect the panelists from inappropriate and rude questions or if it also is to protect the content (ie don’t allow anyone to ask any questions about _____)

  • Hot Rod – Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone present
  • Stardust – Neil Gaiman present
  • Beowulf – Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary present
  • Sweeney Todd – mini poster reveal

  • Iron Man – taped greeting and throw to Marvel panel on Saturday
  • Indiana Jones 4 – satellite from set
  • Star Trek 11 – JJ Abrams, Damon Lindeloff, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman

Looks like there will be some fun stuff is in store for those in attendance. I’m most looking forward to the Drillbit Taylor trailer, Indiana Jones 4 satallite segment, and the Star Trek presentation. I’m sure JJ will be forced to field a bunch of questions regarding Cloverfield, even though it’s not on the schedule. And before you ask, Paramount and Universal have set up a Saturday panel to focus on Iron Man and Incredible Hulk.

Stardust Movie Poster/Advertisement

Stardust Ad/PosterIs this the new poster for the big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust? Not exactly. This poster image appeared in this weekend’s LA Times Sunday edition (via KungFuVideo). I have heard nothing but incredible things about Gaiman’s work. My only exposure has been Mirrormask, which I’ve been told is not an accurate indication of his work. Check out some of our previous Stardust coverage: Movie Trailer (HD available), Unofficial Movie Trailer, 30 Production Photos. You can also click on the image to the right to see a much larger version.

Stardust follows a young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) who tries to win the heart of Victoria (Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and forbidden land beyond the walls of his village.

Stardust hits theaters on July 27th 2007.

MPAA Rates Stardust and Gone, Baby, Gone

Gone Baby Gone movie

We normally refrain from reporting MPAA Ratings, but we’re looking forward to the following two movies.

Ben Affleck’s directorial debut Gone Baby Gone has been Rated R For violence, drug content and pervasive language. Gone is an adaptation of the Dennis Lehane (Mystic River) novel of the same name. The film is getting a lot of early buzz within the industry. The story follows two detectives in search of a 4 year old girl from Dorchester that has been kidnapped in Boston. Morgan Freeman, Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan, Robert Wahlberg, and Ed Harris star. Gone, Baby, Gone hits theaters on September 28th 2007.

Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust (30 photos, HD Movie Trailer) has been Rated PG-13 For some fantasy violence and risqué humor. The film follows a young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) who tries to win the heart of Victoria (Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and forbidden land beyond the walls of his village. Stardust hits theaters on July 27th 2007.

New Stardust Movie Trailer Online In HD

Stardust

Last week we posted an unofficial trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust (30 photos, Unofficial Movie Trailer). I complained about the effects and on the nose dialogue. Gaiman fans told me to wait for the real trailer to make judgement. Well now the real trailer is on Yahoo! Movies in full High Def. I must admit, the new trailer looks a lot better. The special effects even look finished. Now I actually want to see this film. So watch the new trailer at one of the links below:

Stardust Movie Poster Revealed

Stardust Movie PosterCanMag has posted what appears to be the first poster for Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust (30 photos, Unofficial Movie Trailer). Click on the photo to the left for a larger version. I’m guessing that this is just one of the character posters as Michelle Pfeiffer is one of the supporting characters.

Stardust Movie Trailer Revealed

Stardust

Don’t kill me but I must admit: I’m not a Neil Gaiman fan. It’s not that I don’t like him, it’s just that I haven’t found time to read his work (that, and the coloring on the first Sandman trade paperbacks scare me away). Anyway, most geeks swear by him. If Joss Whedon is their god, Gaiman is their Jesus. And I’m not saying that Gaiman’s remains were just found in a cave by the guy who made Titanic. Okay, my analogy really isn’t working. Either way, my only encounter with Gaiman’s work was through the Mirrormask film, which I’ve been told isn’t a great representation of what he’s capable of.
