First Look: Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine & More Head 'Into the Woods'

Into the Woods

Very soon Disney will release the first trailer for their adaptation of fairytale mash-up stage musical Into the Woods, but in the meantime, we finally get some more first look photos to join the singular glimpse at the film that featured Meryl Streep as an ugly witch. This time there's photos of Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as her prince, Johnny Depp as the the Wolf, James Corden as the baker, Emily Blunt as the baker's wife, and many more. Could this inspire the return of live-action musicals at The House of Mouse? It's about time they ad a bit of a revival since once being a big part of the studio's history.

Zooey Deschanel Tweets 'Rock the Kasbah' Set Photo with Bill Murray

Rock the Kasbah

Late last fall, we got word that Bill Murray would be teaming up with Rain Man and The Natural director Barry Levinson for a film called Rock the Kasbah. The film stars Murray as a burned out music manager who goes to Afghanistan on the USO tour with his last remaining client. But when he finds himself abandoned, broke and without a passport, he finds a young girl with a remarkable voice and stows her away back to Kabul for a chance to compete on "Afghan Star," which is the equivalent of "American Idol" in Afghanistan (there's actually a great feature documentary about the show you should watch). Now a first look photo from the end of production has emerged thanks to co-star Zooey Deschanel on Twitter. Look!

Look at Roman Epic Storyboards By an 11-Year Old Martin Scorsese

The Eternal City

Today we all know Martin Scorsese as the director of acclaimed films like Hugo, The Wolf of Wall Street, GoodFellas, Taxi Driver, Mean Streets and the Best Picture winning The Departed. But at a young age, Scorsese had a taste for Roman epics, and he actually drew some incredible storyboards to illustrate what his film would look like. These drawings popped up in David Thompson's incredible book Scorsese on Scorsese, but now they've been posted in great quality online. These are super impressive for an 11-year old kid, and what's even more awesome is that at this young age, Scorsese already knew who he wanted to star.

First Look: Ben Stiller in 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb'

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

In what will likely be the final adventure in this family friendly franchise, Ben Stiller is back in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and the first photos from the film have arrived. We get to see Robin Williams back as Teddy Roosevelt, and also Dan Stevens joining the film as Lancelot (but no sign of Rebel Wilson yet). This time the action moves across the pond in London's British Museum. This time the Egyptian Golden Tablet of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah, which makes the museum exhibits come to life at night, is corroding, and something must be done to save it. This will probably be more of the same, but whatever.

Comic-Con 2014: Marvel Reveals Hulkbuster Arm & Damaged Ultron

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

We may be finished with Comic-Con 2014, and while the big Marvel panel was Saturday evening, that didn't stop the comic book studio from giving fans a couple more surprises. Earlier this week, several intriguing items from Marvel's cinematic universe hit the Marvel booth (like Loki's staff and Black Widow's slick new motorcycle), but today, the studio actually showed off a few pieces from The Avengers: Age of Ultron. One was the fist of Tony Stark's Hulkbuster armor used to keep the big guy in check when he gets a little out of control. And another is the early version of Ultron, a drone cyborg created by Stark himself gone rogue. And there's one more that may be a little worrisome for Captain America fans. Look!

First Look: Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in 'Batman v. Superman'

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Warner Bros. blew the roof off Comic-Con immediately by bringing director Zack Snyder out to Hall H, introduced with some awesome concept art in motion from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The footage shown was a teaser that seemed shot specifically for the convention with Ben Affleck decked out in a bulky, metal batsuit reminiscent of Iron Man, turning on the bat signal. And that's where Superman (Henry Cavill) shows up in the sky, floating down to a rooftop, flaring his heat vision eyes. But in addition, we also got to see a quick shot of concept art of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and she looks great. Look!

Comic-Con 2014: 'Maze Runner' Sequel 'Scorch Trials' Concept Art

The Maze Runner

Though audiences won't get a chance to see The Maze Runner until September, director Wes Ball revealed at Comic-Con that development of the sequel The Scorch Trials is already underway with an eye towards shooting at the end of the year, at least if the first film turns out to be a hit. The footage shown off in Hall H, which included a new trailer and a scene where lead character Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) was chased by a creature called a Griever, was thoroughly impressive, and it looks like an intense action adventure. And as a tease for where this franchise could go, a piece of concept art was revealed. Look now!

Comic-Con 2014: Loki's Staff & Black Widow's Bike at Marvel Booth

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

The excitement just keeps growing for whatever Marvel has in store for their panel tomorrow evening here at Comic-Con in San Diego, and while we're sure that we'll be getting footage from The Avengers: Age of Ultron, there's no guarantee of what else to expect. Will Joaquin Phoenix be on hand to be officially named Doctor Strange or will someone else take the role? What are all of Marvel's future mystery projects set through 2019 or their recent 2018 date? What we do know is a couple of goodies have appeared at the Marvel booth. Today, the comic book studio unveiled Black Widow's new motorcycle, a prototype from Harley-Davidson called Project LiveWire, and a familiar weapon from a mischievous bad guy. Look below!

First Look: Rupert Friend is Double Armed & Dangerous in 'Agent 47'

Hitman: Agent 47

Later today we'll get to see some footage from 20th Century Fox's franchise sequel Hitman: Agent 47 during the studio's Comic-Con panel in Hall H. This time it's not Timothy Olyphant in the role, but rather Rupert Friend as the bald, genetically engineered assassin from the video game series of the same name. There are no story details just yet, but we do have some first look photos of Friend in action with co-star Hannah Ware as Katia van Dees. But as of now, no sign of Zachary Quinto in the film. We're not excited about the film yet, especially with a February 2015 release, but maybe some good footage can convince us.

First Look: 'SpongeBob' Becomes a Live-Action Superhero in Sequel

SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water

During the Paramount Pictures panel at Comic-Con, where Christopher Nolan made his Hall H debut with Interstellar, we were also given a first look at a film on the completely opposite end of the spectrum: SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water. While this isn't a film we're particularly excited about, the footage shown at Comic-Con was so weird, even by normal "SpongeBob SquarePants" standards. SpongeBob and his friends end up heading into the real world, but in the form of Avengers style superheroes. But they're in a very lifelike computer animated form, and it makes for a strange aesthetic.

Comic-Con 2014: See the Vehicles from 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Vehicles

"That there is a dame to kill for." If there is a movie perfect for Comic-Con it's Sin City, adapted from Frank Miller's beloved graphic novel by genre mastermind Robert Rodriguez. Among the many promotions at Comic-Con 2014 is the "Sin City Experience" connected to the upcoming sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which finally hits theaters this August after being delayed for years. The experience features a background skyline display, DJ booth, giveaways but most importantly - a selection of six classic cars from the movie. We stopped by early on to snap a few photos of the sleek vintage vehicles parked in San Diego.

What!? Director Zack Snyder Reveals Henry Cavill as a Jedi Superman

Right now production is underway on Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and while we've only seen photos of Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman, the latest photo to come from the set is mindblowing. That's mostly because we're not sure why it exists. Director Zack Snyder took to Twitter with a photo featuring Cavill as Superman, but he was also wearing a cloak and wielding a red lightsaber. All he included with the photo was the hashtag #SuperJedi, which seems a little weird since the photo looks pretty dark, and we've never seen a Jedi with a red lightsaber, but there you have it. Look below now!

Comic-Con 2014: Ben Affleck's New Batman Cape & Cowl on Display

Zack Snyder's Batman

"He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector." Taking place this week is Comic-Con 2014, but it's also the 75th Anniversary of Batman, the comic book superhero created by Bob Kane. In honor of the anniversary, DC's booth is filled with Batman everything, including costumes, capes and masks from every single Batman movie (photos in our showfloor gallery). While many fans are scrambling for a look at the older costumes, few seem to realize the new "Batfleck" costume is there, too. They're showing off Ben Affleck's Batman cape & cowl from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (seen before) at the Con and we have photos.

Comic-Con 2014: Our First Look at Preview Night Showfloor Photos

Comic-Con

It is my tradition to kick off Comic-Con by walking the showfloor on preview night and taking photos of anything movie-related that interests me. This year the showfloor is overrun with Batman galore, because today is "Batman Day" celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the DC Comics superhero. There were also some new discoveries including Smaug at Weta and Hunger Games guards. I made my way through the crowds and snapped as many shots as I could before getting out, but there will certainly be more to come at the end (as I always head back again). For now, take a look at our preview night gallery with lots of toys and props.
