Thor Ragnarok Comic-Con Footage and Panel

Members of the /Film staff spent much of the past week in San Diego to cover Comic-Con 2017, the enormous convention that explores every single corner of the geek world (and surely you’ve heard of it and already knew that). We saw footage from Marvel’s upcoming movies, including Avengers: Infinity War. We were able to listen to Steven Spielberg talk about Ready Player One. We explored the world of Blade Runner 2049 in a special VR experience. We watched 7,000 people go totally nuts over the first trailer for Stranger Things season 2.

But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. We’ve compiled all of our Comic-Con coverage from the past week into one handy post, organized by category. So please: peruse and enjoy and get your fix.

2017 Saturn Awards Nominations

If you’re one of those people who gets frustrated because the Academy Awards don’t nominate the science fiction, fantasy, and horror films you love for Best Picture or any of the other categories, then the Saturn Awards are for you.

The 2017 Saturn Award nominations have just been announced, and not only did Rogue One: A Star Wars Story come out on top with 11 nominations, but all those comic book movies that never had a chance in hell of getting a Best Picture nomination landed a bunch of nods. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War and even X-Men: Apocalypse all received nominations.

But this isn’t just a comic book movie celebration, because plenty of other genre films landed nominations too. Star Trek Beyond, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and 10 Cloverfield Lane are just some of the other films that ended up getting nominated for awards, too.

Check out the full list of 2017 Saturn Awards nominees below. Read More »

the walking dead characters

The characters who’ve survived so far in The Walking Dead comics have probably lived this long for a reason. Since Robert Kirkman’s black-and-white zombie comic started in 2003, quite a few prominent characters have been killed off in the zombie wasteland. The series is famous for some memorable death scenes. Season seven of the television series, which returns in less than two weeks, was even hyped up over the death of one character — a tease in the season six finale that polarized fans.

Kirkman says, at least in the comics, not to expect too many major deaths in the near future. Below, read what else he had to say about the fate of his characters and watch a promo for the second half of season seven of The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead Movie

Right now The Walking Dead is in the middle of its seventh season, and it’s perhaps the most upsetting season for fans yet. The arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan is really shaking up every aspect of the show, and some fans haven’t been able to handle it. That’s not stopping the show from being just as popular, and the passion of fans just might result in the title heading to the big screen.

The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple was recently asked about the possibility of a movie ever coming to fruition, and he revealed that it’s a topic that has been discussed occasionally. But does that mean the idea has potential? Find out what he had to say about the jump, and also get the remaining episode titles and synopses for the rest of the new episodes this year, but beware of some spoilers. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Dave Chappelle Walking Dead

Last night brought Dave Chappelle to Studio 8H in 30 Rockefeller Plaza to host Saturday Night Live. This was a huge return to sketch comedy for the comedian who stepped away from a $50 million contract at Comedy Central, and the result was an outstanding episode of SNL overall. We’ll get to that later today, but first, there’s a sketch that you just have to see as soon as possible.

While we thought rights issues would prevent Dave Chappelle from being able to revive any of his signature characters from Chappelle’s Show, they must have worked something out with Comedy Central. Originally Chappelle wasn’t sure he wanted to bring back any of his characters while hosting SNL, and who can blame him, but he saw the perfect opportunity to do so by parodying the seventh season premiere of The Walking Dead where the twisted Negan decides which of the show’s main characters he’s going to kill with his trusty bat Lucy.
