News from The Maze Runner panel at Comic-Con announced that director Wes Ball is already developing the sequel The Scorch Trials to shoot later this year as long as the first film does well at the box office this fall. With that news came some concept art of the world we'll see in the new film, and now we have a new poster from across the pond to hype up the first film in the hopeful franchise so fans can actually have a chance at seeing the sequel. It shows Dylan O'Brien ("Teen Wolf") running into the titular maze in question with the veteran trapped boys boys (including Will Poulter) and newly arrived singular girl (Kaya Scodelario). The footage at Comic-Con impressed and there should be a new trailer soon. Look!
Only the mad survive! Aside from Interstellar, the best footage I've seen at Comic-Con 2014 (so far) was for George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road. This movie has been in the works for a very long time, and will finally be out in theaters next summer (May 2015). The footage shows an epic scope and some incredible, amazing, unbelievable (and supposedly practical) vehicle/car action. One scene shows them driving into a massive sandstorm, with tornadoes that tear some of the cars apart before they burst into flames. It looks insane, but insane in every good way possible. A new set of character posters have debuted - see them below.
It's Marvel day here at Comic-Con (and it might be DC Comics day too if the Warner Bros. panel brings some surprises), and before the comic book studio unleashes their panel this evening, they've tossed out the final two concept art posters for The Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). It looks like the God of Thunder is having a little bit of trouble with Ultron's robot army and the big guy looks pretty pissed off too. And if you want to see how all the concept art posters released so far together for an awesome scene, we've put the entire image below as well. It's pretty great.
Following The Avengers: Age of Ultron concept art posters for Iron Man and Scarlet Witch on the first day of Comic-Con and two more with Captain America and Black Widow, yet another two posters have revealed Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). The speedster looks pretty wild-eyed as he speeds around fighting Ultron's robot army, while Hawkeye is relegated to hand-to-hand combat instead of his bow and arrow. But what's really cool is our first look at Vision (Paul Bettany) flying in the background of Quicksilver's poster, so it seems he'll have a big part of this battle.
Following yesterday's debut of two concept art posters from The Avengers: Age of Ultron, two more posters have debuted today, and it seems like there's going to be a whole batch of posters that will connect to show off a huge battle between Earth's mightiest heroes. Yesterday's posters showed off Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and newcomer Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) but today we get Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Captain America (Chris Evans), all fighting a ton of Ultron's robots. And if you look at the Black Widow poster, you'll see part of Thor's hammer to the left and Hulk's big arm to the right. Look!
"This is an opportunity to connect with the fans and listen to what they want to see as well as presenting them with our vision." For years we've been hearing about projects and adaptations inspired by Heavy Metal, the badass sci-fi/fantasy magazine, but none of have ever come to fruition. Many fans may recall the classic 1981 Heavy Metal animated movie, but there hasn't been an updated take yet. However, according to a report by Variety, Heavy Metal is "looking to make a significant splash at this year's Comic-Con" and that includes revealing art from Mondo that is the first teaser poster for "the reboot of the Heavy Metal movie".
There's been a plethora of hype for The Avengers: Age of Ultron over the past week, but that's because we're about to see the first bit of footage from the sequel here at Comic-Con in San Diego. The movie won't arrive until next summer, but Marvel loves to hype up their future releases (as we've seen since they're staking out dates way ahead of time). But this is all good news for fans, because it means they can get their hands on some cool commemorative stuff like two concept art posters that were handed out at the convention today at Marvel's booth. These two feature Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) battling Ultron's army, and we think more are probably on the way this week. Look!
Hey Hank! With Comic-Con 2014 kicking off today, we're going a bit crazy with Marvel Studios buzz, between new release dates, hype about Saturday's panel, buzz about the Guardians of the Galaxy release and so much more. The latest debut is this poster - a comic book art poster for Marvel's Ant-Man, which is now being directed by Peyton Reed, but will still star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, with Evangeline Lilly in the mix, too. We expect to hear (and hopefully see) a lot more about this comic book movie in the next few days as Comic-Con swings its doors open. For now, feast your eyes on this art and tell us if you are excited.
"He also happens to be a robot." Meet Chappie, a boy kidnapped by criminals who becomes an adopted son of a "strange and dysfunctional family". The first promo banner for Neill Blomkamp's third film, Chappie, has been found inside of the halls of Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego. The Con has been launching grounds for Blomkamp's last two sci-fi creations, Elysium and District 9, and while Sony doesn't have his latest film listed on any panels yet, it will be getting a reveal here as indicated by this banner. It's a very wide promo banner positioned right above the entrance doors, showing the robot drawing child-like sketches on a wall. Sharlto Copley stars as Chappie, joined by Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Dev Patel. Photos below.
What a lovely day, indeed! Down here in San Diego, where Comic-Con kicks off tonight, it is a very lovely blue sky day. Warner Bros is unleashing artwork for the three big movies they're promoting here at the Con. Earlier we ran the first poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, now we have the teaser poster for George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road. This movie has been delayed for so many years, with filming taking place down in Australia back in 2012. Tom Hardy stars in this along with Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nicholas Hoult and Zoë Kravitz. This is just a teaser poster, and we expect a trailer this week too, so it's nothing epic but does look cool. Check out this first look and hold out for more.
There's no doubt that Comic-Con is the place to be for fans excited about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I with the trailer premiering here in San Diego this weekend before hitting Samsung tablets exclusively. And now there's one more goodie in store to spark the revolution as WK Interact was commissioned by Lionsgate to create this Comic-Con exclusive poster. It's got a guerrilla revolution graffiti style to it, almost like it's a poster for a rock band or something like that. But of course the symbol of the Mockingjay is easily spotted. Check out yesterday's living statue portraits, and stay tuned for more! Look!
There's already plenty of hype for Guardians of the Galaxy, and fans who took the time to see the sneak preview of footage from the film a couple weeks ago were lucky enough to get a cool commemorative poster. But fans who weren't able to make it to the event still have a chance to get their hands on a couple cool posters. First of all, IMAX will be releasing a FanFix poster to anyone who sees the first midnight showing on August 1st (while supplies last), and then Marvel will be handing out a poster to those lucky enough to get into their panel at Comic-Con in Hall H this Saturday (stay tuned for our coverage). Look below now!
The Defining Chapter. It all comes down to this. Will Peter Jackson redeem himself with the third and final movie in The Hobbit trilogy? It looks like that's what they want us to think. Warner Bros has unveiled the first official poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, featuring an epic fire-engulfed Smaug the Dragon in a stand off with Bard the Bowman, played by Luke Evans. This is an awesome poster to debut, even though it's another "from the back" hero shot (which is the popular poster trend nowadays). With Comic-Con kicking off this week, we expect a trailer, more posters, and plenty more Hobbit hype soon.
After we presented the rap battle between the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles single "Shell Shocked" and the classic hip-hop tune "Ninja Rap" by Vanilla Ice, the newer beat gets prime placement in a new TV spot for the August release. Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael are back together and in full swing, and the more I see of this flick, the more excited I get. The characters seem to have been written perfectly with the right amount of comedy, and the new designs just don't bug me at all. And for good measure, we've got some new posters showing off the heroes in a half-shell too. Look and watch now!
