Justice League Dark John Constantine

Guillermo Del Toro appeared on a panel today at WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, CA, to promote his upcoming film Pacific Rim (you can read our full on-site panel coverage here).

During the audience Q&A portion of the panel, a fan asked the director about another project he’s working on: Justice League Dark also known as Dark Universe (and Heaven Sent), a film for DC/Warner Bros.

Del Toro said he was finished with a “bible” for Justice League Dark, which will differ from DC’s main Justice League film, and is beginning on the script with a writer, who will be announced soon. He revealed that the lead character will be a blond version of John Constantine, the center of DC/Vertigo’s comic book series Hellblazer (brought to the screen by Keanu Reeves in 2005’s Constantine). The Demon in the story will be Jason Blood, who was one of the Knights of King Arthur. In the current version of the script, the audience will discover the origins of the team as the story progresses, instead of all at the beginning, and there is going to be a mystery to solve.

WonderCon 2013: Evil Dead panel banner

Jolts galore for the jam-packed Arena at WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, CA, as the Sony Pictures panel for the Evil Dead made its much anticipated appearance. The film, not so much a remake as a reimagining, is looking to take same kind of reins of horror-filled intensity, gore, shocks, and frights as the original did more than 30 years ago, and looking to bridge together generations of fans – those who have been following the original cult smash films and new audiences who will be discovering it for the first time.

Directed by Fede Alvarez, who was handpicked by the original director of the first three films, Sam Raimi, and who also produced with the incomparable and absolute icon of modern horror, Bruce Campbell (who starred as “Ash” in the original trilogy), with Robert Tapert and starring Jane Levy as the main protagonist, the new film looks to scope out a new horizon as the first film did and rightfully take its place in the modern horror pantheon of some of the all- time great stomach-in-knots-cinematic churners.

WonderCon 2013: Pacific Rim Panel banner

At WonderCon 2013‘s Pacific Rim panel, director Guillermo Del Toro came to the stage amidst wild applause and greeted the fans with a hearty, “Hola!”

He asked if people have seen the various Pacific Rim trailers that have already been released. The audience applauded in agreement. He said that was good, because the trailer he was about to show was cut specifically for this event, and probably won’t be seen again after this.

He then showed the new trailer, the highlight of which was seeing a 25-story high Jaeger robot dragging a oil tanker behind it through the streets of Hong Kong, to use as a bat against a Kaiju, followed by a two-fist slap to the Kaiju’s head.

WonderCon 2013: The Conjuring

At WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, CA, the panel for The Conjuring kicked off with a clip featuring Lili Taylor as a mom playing blindfolded hide and seek with her daughter, trying to find her just by listening to her claps, when she hears claps coming from something in the wardrobe that only the audience realizes isn’t her daughter. Later that evening, she hears the phantom claps again and she goes to investigate. The claps lead her down to her cellar. As she’s walking downstairs, the cellar door slams behind her and the lightbulb breaks, leaving her in darkness. As she turns on her flashlight, we see hands behind her in the darkness, issuing an ominous CLAP CLAP!

Director James Wan explained that the film is based on the true story of the haunting of the Perron sisters as documented by Lorraine Warren, a real-life paranormal investigator. Both Ms. Warren and sisters Cindy and Andrea Perron were on the panel.

WonderCon

Even on a Sunday the floor of this year’s WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center is abuzz. Dominating the landscape of the exhibition hall are the booths of comic publishers DC, IDW, and Archaia.

But, quite possibly the best booth at the Con so far is the one for HBO’s Game of Thrones television series. Fans of the show can have a gruesome photo taken with their head digitally impaled on a spike. The photos feature the iconic and apt phrase from Game of Thrones, “The King Can Do As He Likes.”

At the DC booth, the massive publisher showcased the latest in DC Direct figures from the upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. Among the figures were Bane, Batman, and Catwoman in her full costume. In addition, DC looks to be teaming up with New Era to produce Batman vs Bane hats — the hats feature the dark knight and bane slugging it out in the streets of Gotham.

WonderCon 2012: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man panel was by far one of the most anticipated panels for WonderCon 2012. Though the panel lacked lead actor Andrew Garfield or any big reveals, a several minute long trailer gave some deep insight into the film’s emotional elements.

At a glance the film looks to be dealing with Peter as a young man who has lost his parents and the emotional repercussions of such an event. That is not to say the trailer did not have some incredible action choreography laced throughout. Of note were a few never before seen scenes of Peter training in what looked like an abandoned warehouse, with his newfound powers. Most of the new scenes involved Spider-Man swinging through city streets and one scene in which Spider-Man taunts a would be car thief. The trailer (description below) encompassed everything that is Spider-Man.

Looper

Director Rian Johnson opened up the Looper panel today at WonderCon 2012 by explaining that it’s a time-travel action movie that he had conceptualized as far back as when he directed Brick.

Loopers are hit men hired by future-dwelling organized crime members who are able to send their targets back into the past, where the loopers shoot them and dispose of them back in time. Joseph Gordon-Levitt ‘s character is a looper who is surprised when he discovers his latest target is his future self. He stars in the film along with Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, and Piper Perabo. At the heart of it is the question, “What would you do if you sat across the table from your older self?”

Snow White and the Huntsman

The Snow White and the Huntsman panel at WonderCon 2012 on Saturday began with E! movie personality Ben Lyons introducing director Rupert Sanders and actresses Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron.

Sanders began with an explanation as to how he managed to stay true to the original material of Snow White, saying he wanted to maintain the authenticity of the original while bringing it to a new and contemporary audience.

Stewart, who plays Snow White, when asked what portion of the film she was most proud of said that she was impressed with how delicately Sanders handled the entire process as a director.
