Can you believe it was 9 years ago since we last saw Sin City on the big screen? To be honest with you, I can’t believe that much time has gone by. And now there’s an announcement that possibly a third film has been green lit. All I can do is hope and pray that it doesn’t take another nine years to put it out. So if you weren’t at Comic-Con this past week, don’t fret. You’re probably richer for it and best of all…you get to read and see all the news unfold in the privacy of your own home without the mad crowds and overnight slumber parties on the convention center’s lawn. So without further ado, check out the red band trailer of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For shown exclusively this past weekend at Comic-Con. Who said you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Enjoy!

So there are plenty of ways I could go over the various panels I saw throughout my time at Comic Con. I have done so in a number of articles already, but all of this work certainly takes a lot of work. So, with that said, rather than recap the same panels in written form, which have been covered on the day and read by thousands already, I figured I would publish a couple podcast episodes featuring myself and friend/fellow movie lover/Comic Con veteran Alan Aguilera. The two of us took the time, during Comic Con, to go over our experiences from Wednesday through Saturday. These were recorded on Friday and Sunday mornings, with part 2 being a good example of how exhausted we were, after seeing so much. Continue on to listen to a couple bonus episodes from Out Now with Aaron and Abe (the podcast I co-host), which features discussions of Marvel, Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures, Legendary Pictures, Sony Pictures, Sin City, Batman the TV Show, 24, Sleepy Hollow, Comedy Central, Adult Swim, and many other panel presentations, along with various stories, showroom floor experiences, and the craziness that was the Hall H line this year.
Michael Myers was out in full force this past weekend to spread word of his new box set coming this fall at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend. So much in force, there were nine iterations of himself to cover the grounds. This band of Michaels wandered the convention halls and exteriors. Then, outside, they stopped people in the streets with their…stalking…slashing…chilling…dance moves? That’s right, Michael was the hottest thing on the dancefloo-sidewalk. Below is a video of this performance. If you haven’t pre-ordered this amazing box set yet, do so after the video clip. Its so close but so far away from being here! This video will help you while you anticipate!
I wish I had time to check out a lot of other panels, but it is nice to be able to see some highlights, such as this. I may not currently be watching The Simpsons, but I am sure a panel featuring the creators is a lot of fun. Even better is having Homer Simpson make his Comic Con debut, which is what you can see in this post. Continue on to see Matt Groening and Homer Simpson converse on stage at Comic Con and learn more about the upcoming season.
While I am sure Aaron Neuwirth will be covering this one in much more depth in his Hall H recap from yesterday, about 3 hours ago Warner Bros. let this Mad Max: Fury Road trailer leak in HD online. I wanted you readers to see it as soon as humanly possible so I dropped everything I was doing, left all the groceries in the cart in aisle #4 and raced home to get this posted ASAP. So while we wait for all the 2015 movies to drop next year, here’s a little something to whet your appetite. Enjoy! Continue reading ‘Comic-Con 2014: First Look at ‘Mad Max Fury’ Full HD Trailer!’

So as has become the tradition for Marvel Studios at Comic-Con, the company released concept art posters for next May’s Age of Ultron where Ultron will be the main villain. Duh!

Our hard-working reviewer out in the field, Aaron Neuwirth, braved the 12-hour wait last night to get into Hall H for the Comic-Con 2014 panels today so he will be having a full thorough write-up later on, but for right now I want you to feast your eyes on the woman of the hour. Revealed a little more than an hour ago out there in beautiful San Diego, Zack Snyder teased an image of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I was able to grab a full resolution image of the still leaked at Comic-Con this morning for you all to enjoy down below. Check back later for full coverage of this exciting Hall H event courtesy of Aaron! Continue reading ‘Comic-Con 2014: First Photo of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman’
“When his best friend and podcast co-host goes missing in the backwoods of Canada, a young guy joins forces with his friend’s girlfriend to search for him.” Now this sound alike a film my fellow reviewers will absolutely love, not to mention it’s written and directed by Kevin Smith and stars Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Justin Long and more. So straight from his Hall H Panel at Comic Con, check out the official trailer for Kevin Smith’s Tusk, a truly transformative tale. Enjoy!

I am very much looking forward to Gotham, when it debuts in the fall, but in the meantime, Fox is providing Comic Con guests and anyone who is in San Diego the chance to zip line through the city, which is pretty cool. Check out this post to see what its like and learn how you can participate, if you are in the area!
I have next to nothing to post, in regards to what happened in Hall H with Paramount, as I was not there. That said, we do have a very basic recap of what happened, provided by Paramount, including a trailer and some images. I wish this could be more all encompassing, but here we are: Thursday in San Diego Comic Con’s Hall H, Paramount shared exciting news about its upcoming films SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, PROJECT ALMANAC, HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2, HERCULES, and INTERSTELLAR. Continue on to learn more.
Either Sony Pictures just could not get enough films together for panels this year or they are still recouping from the expenditures from Spider-Man’s appearance at last year’s Comic Con, but regardless, this was a pretty stripped down affair for a studio that currently has a couple square blocks devoted to a number of their upcoming features (Fury, The Equalizer, The Interview). That said, while one of the two films presented had little to offer audiences, the other managed to have me more excited than I thought I would be. So let’s dive in to this limited panel from one of the major studios appearing at this year’s Comic Con.
I was happy to sit in on the Comedy Central panel at Comic Con and following a hilarious panel for the hit sketch show Key & Peele (I reviewed the Blu-ray for the first two seasons HERE), a special look at a new animated series took place. Here’s the official word: Today at San Diego Comic-Con Comedy Central unveiled the first look at “Moonbeam City,” the brand’s newest animated series debuting in 2015. “Moonbeam City” is an absurdist take on the gritty, sex-drenched crime dramas from the 1980s and follows undercover detective Dazzle Novak (voiced by Rob Lowe), a handsome idiot who commits more crimes than most criminals. The show also stars his tyrannical chief, Pizzaz Miller (Elizabeth Banks), who won’t get off his back and hotshot rookie Rad Cunningham (Will Forte) who is dying to see him fail. With the world against him, Dazzle is thrust into a living nightmare: having to do actual police work. “Moonbeam City” is executive produced by Will Gluck’s Olive Bridge Entertainment in association with Titmouse Studios. Comedy Central’s panel at Comic-Con today featured the series’ Executive Producers Scott Gairdner and Tommy Blancha. Continue on to see a clip and some pictures from the show.
There are a lot of things to see at San Diego Comic Con every year and while I am certainly excited to see a number of the high profile panels taking place this year, I am not overstating it when I say that a Hall H panel focused on the 60s Batman television series definitely had my attention. After years of waiting, the entire series is finally going to be released onto Blu-ray and DVD this November and apparently Comic Con was the place to reveal the details of the upcoming set. Not at all hurting was the presence of Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar, who were game to share some stories, while audiences were also treated to clips from the newly remastered episodes.
Announcements have been ruining rampant all day long at Comic-Con, but here’s one I’m quite interested in as I have yet check the full season of this Showtime show out yet. Of course I’m talking about Eva Green and her hit horror series, Penny Dreadful. Don’t be frightened! Penny Dreadful doesn’t come out until October 7th on blu-ray and DVD so you have plenty of time to find your courage. So join me in welcoming Penny to the Blu-ray format and check out the full press release below from CBS and Paramount. Continue reading ‘Comic-Con 2014: Penny Dreadful Season One Blu-ray Announced!’
