While Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been busy at work on Brett Ratner's 'Hercules: The Thracian Wars,' director Renny Harlin ('Die Hard 2,' 'Exorcist: The Beginning') was already busy with his own take on the iconic grecian strongman. Along with 'Twilight' star Kellan Lutz (in the title role), Liam McIntyre ('Spartacus'), Gaia Weiss ('Mary Queen of Scotts'), Scott Adkins ('The Bourne Ultimatum') and co-producer Jonathan Yunger, Harlin came out to New York Comic-Con 2013 on Saturday to reveal the first trailer for 'Hercules: The Legend Begins' and to give fans some idea of what to expect from this origin tale.

Though ‘The Walking Dead’ may have stolen the show as the panel to see from New York Comic-Con, you didn’t think Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ would stay away from the action, did you? Save any groundbreaking announcements this year, Marvel honcho Jeph Loeb showed up with series stars Elizabeth Henstridge and Ian de Caestecker in tow to preview new Marvel secrets for the series, and preview Tuesday’s episode “Eye Spy” early!
‘Walking Dead’ fans, you are in for a treat tonight! Not only will season 4 make its official premiere tomorrow, but the cast and crew dropped by New York Comic-Con to shamble out an entire herd full of scoops. In addition to previewing a scene from tomorrow’s premiere, we got a seriously bad-ass sequence from the season to come, and the inside scoop on Abraham and Eugene! Get your ‘Walking Dead’ season 4 fix right here!
The 'Evil Dead' trailer is finally here! Fans of the upcoming film who attended New York Comic Con this year already got a taste of it during the 'Evil Dead' panel. And technically so did we, as this footage was leaked online thanks to one audience member's illegal video recording shenanigans. Keeping in mind that that version got pulled from the web, here's the official, higher-quality 'Evil Dead' trailer.
‘Game of Thrones’ fans were heartbroken to hear that one of the series' leads, Kit Harington, had to bail a few days before the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel earlier this year due to an ankle injury. But that just made his appearance at New York Comic-Con that much more exciting.
Earlier in the convention, Harington joined his big-screen co-star Adelaide Clemens in the IGN theater at Manhattan's Javits Center to promote ‘Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’ along with writer/director Michael J. Bassett and producer Samuel Hadida. Making his big-screen debut in this film, Harington plays Vincent, a mysterious character pulled pretty much directly out of the video game series. Although not much was revealed about Vincent at the panel -- 'cause anything more than a vague description was said to spoil the plot -- Bassett did mention that "If you know the game, you’ll know Vincent."
Also in the works for Harington is his continued role in the upcoming 'Game of Thrones' season 3, premiering March 31, 2013, where we'll get to see him again as the ever-popular Jon Snow along with his new co-star Ciaran Hinds (playing Mance Rayder). I had a chance to chat with Kit Harington about, among other things, ‘Silent Hill: Revelation,’ making his first venture into film, some off-screen shenanigans, and, of course, the much-anticipated ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3.
Considering we still mark years with four digits, more rumors of a 'Firefly' reunion have begun to spill out, though not as we've previously heard them. This past weekend, the cast reunited at New York Comic-Con 2012 for another 10-year reunion panel much as it had in San Diego, but this time a speck of new data escaped out into the 'verse: could the possibility of an actual reunion be in play as an animated series? According to one cast members, the idea has come farther than you might think...
'The Bay' had a small but noteworthy presence at New York Comic-Con 2012, and, along with the folks behind 'Carrie,' 'The Walking Dead,' 'Silent Hill' and the like, held a panel where the crew chatted about the upcoming horror flick and premiered new footage.
While the IGN theater at the Javits Center was filled to the brim with eager fans, folks could check out the happenings directly from the online live stream, but the featured footage was only available to those in attendance. Thankfully, said footage is now available for you to watch.
Aside from all the movie and TV panels at New York Comic-Con 2012, we were there for all the cosplayer action. Some of the standouts were the Red Pyramid, 'Prometheus' Engineer, the plethora of Captain America and Lokis, and, of course, all the hot babes in costume. So, with all this geek action going on, obviously the logical thing to do was play a much-needed game of "'Star Wars' vs. Italian Dish."
