SDCC 2012: Marvels Guardians Of The Universe

We’ve heard rumblings the last couple of weeks about a Guardians of the Galaxy movie as one of the next movies coming from Marvel Studios, but Saturday’s Marvel Studios panel at SDCC gave us an official confirmation.

The film will be released August 1st, 2014 and will feature the newest incarnation of the group. The team featured in the movie will be Starlord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Drax the Destroyer, and Gamorra.

You can see the very first image from Guardians of the Galaxy, a bit of concept art showing off the team (remember, this was just recently confirmed), above or below now.

SDCC 2012: Pacific Rim panel

The Warner Brothers/Legendary Pictures panel at SDCC featured a whole bunch of movies and news, and the first movies up was the new film from Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim. The panel was extra special right from the start, when the curtains pulled back for a couple of extra screens.

The extra screens in Hall H showed a lot of behind the scenes action from the film’s production. The film is described as a “Giant Robot versus Giant Monster” film, and totally lives up to that description. This is a sci-fi epic that is going to get people excited once they see some footage.

Just another surprise came during Marvel’s Iron Man 3 panel in Hall H today at the San Diego Comic-Con. Edgar Wright, director of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz, showed up at the panel to show off test footage that he had just completed for Ant-Man.

Wright has long been rumored to be working on an Ant-Man movie, just recently revealing that he was shooting a test reel, and that is just the project that he had to show off.

SDCC 2012: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey panel

Director Peter Jackson revolutionized fantasy cinema with his epic adaptation of J. R.R. Tolkien‘s Lord of the Rings trilogy, a monumental task, in spite of the author’s insistence that it could never be filmed. Given the phenomenal success with which Jackson pulled that off, how well would he tackle Tolkien’s earlier saga of Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit? San Diego Comic-Con Hall H fans found out earlier today with the panel for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Moderator Chris Hardwick(The Nerdist podcast) kicked off the Warner Brothers/Legendary Pictures panel with a surprise, by pulling open curtains across the back of the hall to unveil projection screens double standard size, larger than I’d ever seen in Hall H history. Over these screens they displayed a collage of images from the film, which gave fans a hint to the epic scale of the panel to follow. Then, they screened a behind-the-scenes reel of footage documenting the exhaustive 266-day production shoot, including some of the amazing epic sets and characters of Tolkien’s Middle Earth.

SDCC 2012: Man Of Steel panel

Everyone’s favorite son from Krypton, Superman, is back in full force in next year’s Man of Steel, which was showcased in a great session today which was part of the Warner Brothers panel in Hall H at San Diego’s Comic-Con.

The film, which is rebooting the storied franchise that arguably almost singlehandedly ushered in the success of comic book films to the silver screen, brings British actor Henry Cavill in to wear the famed tights this time around, following in the pressure filled red boots previously filled by Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh, and even by Tom Welling as the young growing pained Kal-El on the television series Smallville.

SDCC 2012: Silent Hill: Revelation 3D panel

One of the more under the radar movies to show up in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con had to be Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. It’s not that the first movie was horrible, but I don’t think anyone expected to see a sequel made. The Silent Hill panel gave attendees a chance to find out if they should get excited for the new movie not.

The panel started off with two clips from the film. One featured the films heroine, Heather (Adelaide Clemens), facing off against a mannequin monster. The other clip featured Heather attempting to rescue Vincent (Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington) for a group of featureless nurses. The clips captured the feel of the video games, and were at least a little creepy. Unfortunately, the clips were shown without any context, and fell a little flat on the crowd. The 3D in the film looked okay, and the films writer/director Michael J. Bassett said that the film was shot entirely in 3D.

SDCC 2012: Django Unchained panel

Django Unchained, the sixth film from famed director-by-numbers with an original twist of classic cinema wunderkind Quentin Tarantino, opened the Saturday festivities in Hall H today at San Diego Comic-Con. Highly anticipated, the film, which is Tarantino’s nod to the seminal spaghetti western genre which found its peak in the 1960s but containing the urban spice and flavor he’s most known for injecting into his productions, opens in theaters nationwide this Christmas.

A restless crowd awaited the panel, some of whom had waited outside since the wee hours of the morning. Finally at about 11:30AM, the lights went down to thunderous and ear splitting applause. There is no question that this production, not only among the large contingent of the proudly geeked out, comic booked, graphic novel ink running through their veins crowd, but also among millions of movie goers as well, is one of the most anticipated releases of the 2012 movie year.

The Venture Brothers Panel

The Venture Brothers came to San Diego Comic-Con and spoke to a packed house filled with some of the best cosplayers in all of fandom. All the fans in the crowd waited with baited breath for the announcement of when season five would premiere. Their anticipation was paid off when show creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer told them that they would get a Halloween special for this year, with new episodes starting in early 2013.

The crowd was then treated to an animatics preview of the upcoming season. The preview had plenty of laughs and included shots of Sgt. Hatred with bitch tits, Doc Venture and Billy Quizboy doing a ventriloquist act, and the promise that Brock Sampson will be in the whole season. We also learned that The Monarch is a big Game of Thrones fan, but that Dr. Mrs. The Monarch is not. Judging from the limited footage shown, it looks like we’re in for another excellent season.

SDCC 2012: Looper panel

Earlier this year at WonderCon, I was lucky to cover director Rian Johnson‘s panel for Looper, as I had already been a huge fan of his previous work (Brick & The Brothers Bloom). At that time, little had been known about the project and Johnson introduced the intriguing time-travel concept, as well as the amazing makeup work that would transform actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt into a younger version of Bruce Willis. So what updates have transpired on the film since March, now that its release is imminent?

Moderator Ralph Garman (of Kevin Smith’s SModcast Podcast Network) began the San Diego Comic-Con panel by introducing director Johnson, and actors Emily Blunt and Gordon-Levitt. Willis was unavailable, as he’s shooting A Good Day to Die Hard in Europe.
