Britt Hayes Biography
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters in November, returning Harry Potter fans to J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world — or a different corner of it, anyway. Warner Bros. brought the first film in their magical spinoff trilogy to Comic-Con 2016, where they debuted a rather, uh, fantastic new trailer featuring plenty of beasts, indeed.
One of next year’s more intriguing blockbuster prospects is Kong: Skull Island, which takes viewers to the titular home of the iconic movie monster for his first movie in over 10 years. As many predicted, Warner Bros. debuted the official trailer for the film during today’s panel at Comic-Con, giving us our best look yet at the new action-adventure starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and one ginormous ape.
Warner Bros. kicked things off pretty strong during today’s Comic-Con panel in Hall H, debuting a fantastic new trailer for the Wonder Woman solo movie, followed by a special sneak peek at Zack Snyder’s Justice League. In addition to screening footage from the first installment in the two-part film series, WB premiered an official photo featuring the full superhero lineup, giving us a better idea of what these characters will look like when they’re finally united.
Since Pacific Rim hit theaters in 2013, Guillermo del Toro has been talking about his plans for the sequel, which would include expanded roles for Charlie Day and Burn Gorman. Those plans grew to include an animated series and a comic book before Universal swooped in like Stacker Pentecost and canceled Pacific Rim 2 — well, not for long. The sequel is most definitely back on with former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight taking the director’s chair, but with del Toro out, how much of his original story plan remains?
Last fall, it was reported that Warner Bros. had hired The Conjuring 2 scribe David Leslie Johnson to write the screenplay for Aquaman, which would reunite him with director James Wan. It looks like that didn’t exactly work out, as WB has now tapped Gangster Squad writer Will Beal to pen the screenplay based on a story treatment by Wan and DC’s Geoff Johns.
Of the many films Warner Bros. is bringing to Comic-Con 2016, Kong: Skull Island is particularly intriguing — mostly because we haven’t seen much (at all) from the studio’s revival of the iconic monster. WB is reportedly planning to unleash the first teaser trailer in Hall H tomorrow afternoon, but until then, you can check out the first official poster, which depicts a familiar face lurking in the background.
Not to be outdone by Wonder Woman and The LEGO Batman Movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has also gotten its own special poster for Comic-Con 2016 — what, you didn’t really think the first film in a new Harry Potter spinoff trilogy would appear in Hall H without debuting a new poster, did you? In any case, the new poster is definitely in the spirit of Comic-Con, and it looks like something you might actually want to display on your wall.
In addition to a fantastic new poster for Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. has also revealed another teaser poster for The LEGO Batman Movie, which will join Gal Gadot’s standalone film at Comic-Con tomorrow — along with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Kong: Skull Island and more. Although the latest poster for the animated Dark Knight’s new spinoff film is a little misleading, it’s still pretty cool.
There may be less movie panels at Comic-Con 2016 than in any recent year, but Warner Bros. is still bringing several of their upcoming blockbusters to Hall H tomorrow — that includes Wonder Woman, the highly-anticipated solo film starring Batman v Superman scene-stealer Gal Gadot. Ahead of her appearance in San Diego tomorrow, the actress has debuted a brand new poster for her new movie, and it is beautiful.
Filming on Star Wars: Episode VIII has been nearing an end for the past few weeks, as we’ve seen via set photos from director Rian Johnson and Daisy Ridley. As of today, Johnson has officially wrapped production on the upcoming sequel, sharing a very brief video featuring the final slate from the final shot in the film along with a special message of thanks to his cast and crew.
