As much as ‘Guardians’ is a modern Marvel money-making machine, it’s also a tribute to a genre that died in the mid-‘80s. A genre that includes those very movies that people around my age think of fondly – in other words: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is more a tribute to movies like ‘The Last Starfighter’ than it is to ‘Star Wars.’
If you're looking for something to watch in the comfort of your own home, Netflix has some great new titles hitting Instant in August, including the long-awaited fourth season of 'The Killing.' Read on for our guide to the best new titles coming to Netflix Instant in August 2014.
This past weekend at Comic-Con 2014 saw AMC shambling out its official trailer for ‘The Walking Dead,’ season 5, dropping plenty of bodies, blood and tantalizing teases for the new episodes premiering Sunday, October 12. We couldn't help diving a little deeper into every frame of footage to read between the lines, so what secrets of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 have we unlocked?
Beware of major spoilers, and check out everything we found in our inside look at the secrets of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 trailer!
Comic-Con 2014 marked the first time 'Ant-Man' star Paul Rudd attended the epic geek extravaganza, and he was pretty darn stoked about the whole experience, considering he's also joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Following the big Marvel panel, the actor faced the press to talk about his experience becoming the size-shrinking superhero, when he goes into production, and the one thing his friends will never let him live down.
During Marvel Studio's big presentation at Comic-Con 2014, nearly the entire 'Avengers 2' cast came out on the Hall H stage to tease their next big battle and screen the first footage for the fans. But what the audience didn't see was all the post-action. The stars came out to chat with press about all things Ultron, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, the post-'Winter Soldier' S.H.I.E.L.D., and what each character is up to in this brave new world.
Tucked away, up a daunting, unwelcoming flight of outdoor stairs, far, far from the madness of Hall H panels and the other madness of the San Diego Comic-Con floor is vestibule of once or still famous human beings signing autographs for the attendee’s pleasure. (At least, the attendees who ever make it upstairs.) Anyway, I kept a running diary of aimlessly walking around Comic-Con for a few hours. Here’s how that went:
One of the worst kept secrets over in the Marvel world for some time was the development of a Doctor Strange movie. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had expressed his desire to bring the Master of the Mystic Arts from the comics to the screen, and there was even a name drop ("Stephen Strange") in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' but only recently was horror director Scott Der
In the last year, Scarlett Johansson has voiced a sentient operating system in Spike Jonze's 'Her' and played an alien striving to understand humanity in Jonathan Glazer's jarring 'Under the Skin.' This week, she tackles a different kind of sci-fi with 'Lucy,' a film that carries some of the same thematic DNA as her previous roles, though it isn't quite as intellectual -- nor is it as brainy as its titular character. But thanks to Johansson, the film prevails, giving us a wild and delightfully weird entry in the Scarlett Johansson Sci-Fi Collection.
If you're jonesing for some Comic-Con action, but can't make it down to San Diego for the festivities, we've got just the ticket: a massive photo gallery that includes looks at what's happening on the floor, out in the crowd, even on the streets of SD. Comic-Con isn't just panels and trailers (and, yes, lots of waiting in line), it's a full experience that that has to be seen to be believed. If you can't really see it, this should suffice quite nicely.
