By Matt Risley We were lucky enough to chat to the Guardians of the Galaxy cast, and managed to snaffle some time with Peter Quill himself, Chris Pratt. Not only is he heading up this summer’s most fun blockbuster, but he’s also at the forefront of cinema’s return to Isla Nublar in Jurassic World. So given the opportunity, we quizzed the star on the one thing he’s most excited about audiences seeing in the dino-sequel. His answer got us more than a little excited. Guardians of the Galaxy opens in UK cinemas 31 July 2014. …read...

Bruce Campbell to star in Evil Dead TV series?Permanent Link to ">

By George Wales One of the more leftfield announcements at this year’s Comic-Con came from Sam Raimi, who announced that an Evil Dead TV show is something he is currently working on. The director revealed that he is currently writing the new show with his brother Ted, and original star Bruce Campbell, with the latter now suggesting that he will be making a return in front of the camera. Campbell broke the news in reply to a fan on Twitter, who asserted that the show would only be worth watching with Bruce in the leading role. “That’s the plan,” was the...

Quentin Tarantino confirms he will direct The Hateful EightPermanent Link to ">

By George Wales After seeing his script leaked online, and angrily putting a pause on production, Quentin Tarantino has now confirmed that work on The Hateful Eight is moving forward once more. The news broke at a Comic-Con panel Tarantino was attending over the weekend, during which an audience member asked him straight out whether he would still be directing the film. After a second or two of attempting to skirt the issue, Tarantino finally relented, revealing that, “yeah – we’re going to be doing The Hateful Eight.” For anyone who missed the leaked...

By George Wales A new teaser trailer has arrived online for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1, in which the battle lines between the Capitol and the rebellion are clearly drawn. “No-one else can do this but her,” says Plutarch Heavensbee of Katniss Everdeen, and sure enough, our heroine is going to be in the firing line again as she faces off against President Snow’s regime. Indeed, it looks like she will meet some fearsome resistance, as Snow cranks up the terror in order to cling on to his position of power. Take a look at the new trailer, below… Looks...

By George Wales Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have been discussing their plans for the Sin City franchise, with a third film apparently already in the pipeline. “Robert and I are already talking about Sin City 3,” said Miller at Comic-Con. “So you’d better show up for number two or they won’t pay for it.” And speaking of that second film, there is also a new red-band TV spot to check out, featuring a number of dames to whom killing is simply second nature… Take a look at the new teaser, below… Given that there was a nine year gap between...

Mood IndigoPermanent Link to ">

By James Mottram Ten years ago, director Michel Gondry, with the not inconsiderable help of scripter Charlie Kaufman, crafted Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, an era-defining love story. And watching Mood Indigo, you can’t help but think of that earlier triumph. Adapting from the cult 1947 novel L’Écume Des Jours by Boris Vian, Gondry is once again attempting to explore the mysteries of the human heart, only this time with less success. Set in Paris, it focuses on Colin (Romain Duris), a wealthy inventor who lives in a splendid apartment with his...

DelightPermanent Link to ">

By Andrew Lowry Often in cinema people get over bereavement with a focus on the constructive, positive things in life. Delight takes a somewhat different tack: the main character (Jeanne Balibar) starts shagging her dead lover’s son (Gavin Fowler). And that’s about it, kicking in when Balibar’s former war photographer ends up in Wales, only to discover her long-lost love has killed himself. The low budget shows in some variable acting (Balibar is great, though) and there is some clumsy dialogue, but writer/director Gareth Jones does deserve some...

Hide Your Smiling FacesPermanent Link to ">

By Kevin Harley Rustling trees, snakes eating fish, ambient score… His opening gambits alone share territory with other rustic reveries on innocence/experience, but Daniel Patrick Carbone’s visual poetry and ease with young actors distinguish his no-budget US indie debut. Providing the magnetic counter-balance for the plot’s drift, Ryan Jones and Nathan Varnson give natural performances as small-town brothers rocked by a friend’s death. The Malick echoes and half-cocked shots at tension-building seem more forced, but Carbone’s sense of...

BlackwoodPermanent Link to ">

By Simon Kinnear Academic Ben (Ed Stoppard) probably shouldn’t have chosen creepy Blackwood to recover from his nervous breakdown – after all, when he starts seeing things, he could just be going mad. Aware that this premise usually has an either/or resolution, debut director Adam Wimpenny and screenwriter J.S. Hill strive to conjure an arty twist on the haunted house genre, only to strain credulity and patience well before the big reveal. While efficiently filmed, Blackwood prefers using horror tropes as metaphors than for pure scares, lending events the feel...

A PromisePermanent Link to ">

By Kevin Harley Next to Game Of Thrones, Patrice Leconte’s WW1 spanning adaptation of Stefan Zweig’s novella is a bloodless outing for Richard Madden (aka Robb Stark). Madden is drawing-board stiff as Friedrich, personal secretary to a factory owner (Alan Rickman) who falls for the boss’s wife (Rebecca Hall). Bodices remain stubbornly unripped as our romantics wrestle with desire: they lack chemistry and Leconte’s atypically dry direction never implies it. Gabriel Yared’s score works hard to rouse emotion but when the most exciting scene...

By Matthew Leyland / Matt Maytum Legendary Pictures didn’t reveal any Jurassic World footage during their Comic-Con panel (boo!), but that might be because they’ve got plenty of other monsters on their slate. Gareth Edwards appeared via video message, joking that he’ll be busy with “a small little sci-fi film” (that’ll be his Star Wars spin-off), but he did confirm that he’ll be back to tackle the Godzilla sequel after that. He also introduced a brand new clip of Godzilla roaring (was he on top of Alcatraz Island?), as a thank you to...

This time out, Rupert Friend stars as the numerically monikered, genetically altered assassin for hire. Friend wasn’t present in Hall H as he was shooting Homeland in South Africa, but he introduced the exclusive trailer footage via a video message. The trailer opens with a remixed version of ‘Voodoo Child’, with Friend’s antihero handcuffed to the table in an interrogation room. The back of his head (which is stubbly, as...

Comic creator Mark Millar hosted the panel, and talked about missing the fun in modern spy movies, laughing, “When Bond kills a guy now, he cries in the shower about it afterwards.” Director Matthew Vaughn prepared a video intro for the crowd with Mark Hamill in tow.

Glad in Xena-esque get-up, Gadot’s Diana Prince looks almost like a gladiator, with the costume design going for more of a fantasy feel than a sci-fi vibe.

The loquacious Clerks director regaled the crowds with tales from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, describing how he was moved to tears by standing inside J.J.

He also reiterated that his Cop Out star Bruce Willis is the most difficult person he’s ever worked with, and he chatted at length about his career, his homelife and his passion for podcasting.

By Matt Maytum Daniel Radcliffe made his Comic-Con debut with Horns, a twisted horror tragedy based on the novel by Joe Hill. Despite making his name starring in eight Harry Potter films (a franchise that’s attracted no small fandom), Radcliffe had never been into the convention’s Hall H until today.

By Matthew Leyland Whether or not Comic-Con 2014 will bring any Episode VII exclusives remains to be seen, but we’ve at least had some fresh Star Wars action in the form of a Rebels sneak peek. Three clips plus a new, Easter Egg-y trailer from the new animated TV show were shown to fans. The first clip debuted new baddie The Inquisitor – and more importantly, The Inquisitor’s double-bladed, spin-action lightsaber. “We’re always looking for new ways to design weaponry,” explained exec producer Dave Filoni. “And that includes new lightsabers.”...

By Stephen Kelly Also known as Puncture, this true-lifer stars a compelling Chris Evans as Michael D. Weiss, a drug-addicted lawyer who takes on the Goliath that is corrupt medical-supply companies: those who put thousands of American nurses at risk of AIDS by not adopting a slightly more expensive, but safer type of needle. Though hampered by legal clichés, it’s an earnest drama in which, if anything, Evans’ portrayal of a flawed hero is almost too good; his OTT playboy antics distract from the sobering impact of just how terrifying a privatised health...
