You may have heard me say it before, maybe not, but I'm looking forward to Iron Man more than any other comic book movie coming in 2008 (except maybe The Dark Knight). At this year's San Diego Comic-Con last Saturday, Marvel hosted a panel for two of their major films, one being The Incredible Hulk (which we provided updates for already) and Iron Man. Now it's time to hone down and focus on all things Iron Man, including details discussed by director Jon Favreau and star Robert Downey Jr as well as the footage shown and much more.
Before we run our full debriefing on all things Iron Man from the San Diego Comic-Con, we should mention one more video you should take a look at. Iron Man director Jon Favreau headed to the con in style, making appearances at the Paramount panel on Thursday and debuting the Iron Man footage there as well as returning again on Saturday for the actual Marvel films panel and making many appearances at Marvel's booth on the show floor. So in turn, Favreau decided to video tape all of this himself and put together a personal video diary which you can see all 1 and a half minutes of via YouTube below.
The hugely anticipated first look Paramount provided at Comic-Con this past week for their fall centerpiece, Robert Zemeckis' Beowulf, provided a mixed, if promising experience. A packed auditorium found bulky but not altogether unfashionable black glasses on every seat, which, initially made us think perhaps Paramount was trying to bring Blues Brothers shades back into style.
Just a few days ago, FS.net had the chance to chat with the legendary Clive Owen and the director of Clive's next movie, Shoot 'Em Up - Michael Davis. We spent a few minutes firing questions towards these two and discussing one of the most exciting upcoming action movies this year. Not only is Michael Davis just a big action movie fan himself, but Clive Owen is as charismatic and "badass" in person as he is on screen. Read on to watch our exclusive video interview.
Every year at the San Diego Comic-Con it's a trend for the movie studios to debut new posters for some of the most hyped films hitting in the next 12 to 24 months. This year was no exception, with a reveal (and distribution for those lucky enough to get one) of a number of gorgeous posters, from J.J. Abrams' Cloverfield / 1-18-08 to Watchmen, Star Trek, Saw IV, and much more. For simplicity purposes, we've put together every last one that debuted anywhere at the convention together here in one location - enjoy!
At Comic-Con this past weekend, FS.net spent a few minutes to chatting with writer and director Rob Zombie on his upcoming Halloween remake. In addition to chatting with Zombie, a clip from the film and a new extended trailer were shown at the presentation and Zombie and company answered questions from the fans. Anyone excited for Halloween (or not) should check out this interview, as Rob lets us in on his thoughts on all things horror and more.
At the Marvel films panel at the San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, two of next year's most highly anticipated comic book movies, The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man, took the stage to talk with thousands of fans. The Incredible Hulk was one of the highlights, with appearances by director Louis Leterrier, and stars Liv Tyler and Ed Norton. Although they're only 2 weeks into production and have hardly filmed enough footage to show to anyone, they did debut a concept photo of the Hulk, which you can see above. More information and details on the Hulk were revealed at the panel, so read on!

At the Rogue Pictures / Focus Features panel at Comic-Con today, The Descent director Neil Marshall took the stage to debut the very first teaser trailer and footage from his upcoming film Doomsday. The footage was actually quite interesting and a peculiar introduction to what may be another great movie from Marshall. Although none of the cast was on hand to introduce the footage, Neil did answer questions from the audience on all things Descent, Doomsday, and Dog Soldiers. What exactly is Doomsday? Read on to find out.
One of the biggest films that has news hitting from Comic-Con is (of course) Watchmen, the holy grail of comic books.

The Lionsgate presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con just wrapped up about 2 hours ago, and producer Mark Burg, director Darren Lynn Bousman, and star Tobin Bell were on hand to present the very first clip and discuss the latest details on Saw IV. The juciest detail of them all: they submitted to the MPAA and (as expected) got an NC-17 on their very first attempt.
