Much Ado About Nothing panel banner

Joss Whedon‘s cinematic adaptation of the classic William Shakespeare tome Much Ado About Nothing kicked off the Sunday edition of the 2013 WonderCon in Anaheim, CA today in the arena at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The film, which is in black and white and is about a far as you can get from Whedon’s past projects, which include last year’s gold plated smash success The Avengers, (written and directed by the famed wordsmith Whedon) is set for a national release soon to theaters, coming off of a slow climb since late last year when it was showcased at various film festivals. Early word of mouth and reviews have been generally positive, and it’s definitely a nice departure of sorts for Whedon to take on a project in Much Ado About Nothing that has nothing do with costumes, special effects and classic stereotypical action/comic book film eye candy, instead focusing on having skilled actors spout complex dialogue and narrative.

WonderCon 2013: Revolution panel

Natalie Abrams from TV Guide.com moderated the Revolution panel on Saturday at WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, CA. She introduced panelists co-executive producer David Rambo, and actors Zack Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell, Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, David Lyons, Daniella Alonzo, and Tim Guinee.

The cast was asked, when you first found out you would be back on the air, how did you feel? Burke said that taking a break during the hiatus was a relief, but he loves being back.

The moderator asked, how Danny’s death was going to affect the characters moving forward from that point. Rambo said it was emotional behind-the-scenes to say goodbye to a fellow cast member, particularly since finding him was the motivating force of the first half of the season. In his absence, it really ups the stakes, and the emotions are hotter. The cast were all surprised when they found out he’d be killed off, and they’re all waiting for the axe to drop on their own characters. Mitchell was asked what that capsule was that she removed from Danny’s body. She said we’ll find out in two episodes, and more about the capsule through the rest of the season.

WonderCon 2013: This Is the End panel

Cabin fever meets the pending apocalypse as the upcoming comedy This Is The End rounded out the three films showcased by Sony Pictures on their mid-afternoon panel on Saturday at WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, CA, held in the large and sprawling packed to the rafters Arena.

Starring the ever sloppily unkempt but hilariously endearing Seth Rogen, along with his writing partner Evan Goldberg (they both directed the film) and with Danny Mcbride and Craig Robinson, This Is The End shows six friends (who all play themselves and including James Franco and Jonah Hill) trapped in a large dwelling (Franco’s house at a party) after a series of cataclysmic events decimates much of Los Angeles. The fallout from the events sort of takes the narrative to akin to an urban, zany Lord of the Flies, as the relationships feel the strain from the dearth of supplies and being trapped with one another. Eventually the friends are forced to leave the house and have to deal with the new way of life, which is now manifested on purely survival, which eventually draws them every so closer, albeit kookily so.

WonderCon 2013: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones panel

The Arena in the Anaheim Convention Center showcased some upcoming film offerings from Sony Pictures yesterday at WonderCon 2013. Kicking off the triad of films on a balmy Saturday afternoon was the latest book to be adapted into a large-scale theatrical release as the panel for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones made its appearance.

The film, which is set in latter day New York City, has a face value ordinary teenager as its protagonist Clary Fray, played by Lily Collins, who did a turn as Snow White last year in Mirror, Mirror (and whose dad Phil has played drums for Genesis and has had a stellar solo pop music career). The film eventually reveals that Collins is a descendant of a group of half-angelic warriors known as Shadowhunters, who become locked in an ancient battle to save the globe. The disappearance of her mother (played by Game of Thrones’ Lena Hedley) acts as the catalyst for her to jaunt into an evil, dark, mysterious world known as Downworld, inhabited by stalwart fantasy/horror characters such as demons, vampires, warlocks, werewolves, and the like. Based on the worldwide best-selling series of tomes, the film adaptation looks to be the next in the long line of successful book adaptations of this type of genre to the silver screen.
