Keanu Reeves seriously does not get the credit he deserves. Over the years it seems like he's just been accruing knowledge from project to project, figuring out what works for him and what doesn't, and now he's distilled and perfected something that's almost hard to define. Last year he brought the crazy, crowd-pleasing martial arts flick 'Man of Tai Chi' to the Fantastic Fest film festival, and this year he returns with 'John Wick.' It's a ridiculous action thriller in which Reeves plays a former hitman-type out for revenge because some obnoxious Russian gangster's son steals his cool muscle car and kills the puppy his dead wife sent him as a present -- yeah, really.

Comic book creator Mark Millar, the guy behind 'Kick-Ass,' created a new series, a sci-fi space hero series called 'Starlight,' awhile back.

We learned a lot from this year's Comic-Con about Legendary's plans for some epic monster movie action in the future, from the announcement of a 'King Kong' prequel with 'Skull Island' and the confirmation of 'Godzilla 2.'
