San Diego Comic-Con International 2010 brought all kinds of news for movie fans and geeks the world over, not the least of which was the unveiling of the concept art for an updated version of Godzilla.
Almost 60 years after the fire-breathing monster first graced the screen, a modern-day rendition is supposed to once again thrill audiences in 2012. A booth at San Diego Comic-Con set up by Legendary Pictures included smoke machines and a shaking floor to immerse attendees in the experience as an animated Godzilla walked by on a nearby screen.
What do you think of the new look? Will 2012 be 1998 all over again for fans of the franchise? Sound off in the comments below!
Fresh from Comic Con, here is the second trailer for LET ME IN, the remake of the Swedish film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. While it shows a bit more than the average fan may want to see, it is still a good indicator of things to come from its production company, the recently reopened Hammer Films. Take a look!
LET ME IN is set to be released October 1st, 2010
Got a look at last week’s Entertainment Weekly spread on the girls of SUCKER PUNCH and itching for a bit more? SDCC has you covered as brand new posters featuring each girl were just released onto the general public. Reports of an earthquake in the San Diego area turned out to be nothing more than thousands of fan’s jaws dropping to the floor in unison.
Fanboys & fangirls rejoice – fresh from Comic Con comes the announcement that Joss Whedon (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, FIREFLY, DOLLHOUSE) will be directing Marvel’s upcoming THE AVENGERS movie. In terms of his approach to the multi-superhero flick, he had this to say:
I’m still writing the outline. I am at the stage where I am reworking and reworking. What I love about this is that there is no way that these people should be in the same room together, let alone the same team. And that, to me, is the definition of family.
He has a lot of work and great expectations ahead of him. Here is to hoping the outline turns into something great!
STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE’s Armin Shimerman (Quark) has been cast in the new science fiction web series ZIMM.
He’ll be playing Special Agent In Charge Ryan Sutherland, with NUMB3ERS’ Alimi Ballard as Agent Keith Clarkson.
Robyn Hyden (BLOOD AND ROSES) and Michelle Boyd (FLASHFORWARD) will be playing Bailey and Halley Zimm, respectively.
Seems to be an alien invasion premise, and is set to bow at Comic Con
“ZIMM is an original sci-fi, action-thriller created by Gregory Storm. Storm’s writing credits include The CW’s GIRLFRIENDS and ABC’s NIGHT STALKER.
Filmed in HD with a professional, high-caliber cinematic look, this explosive and fast-paced, multi-episode series will be like “24″ with aliens and a “Die Hard” attitude.
The series is executive produced by Maryam Storm and Gregory Storm of Storm Factory Entertainment.”
