SDCC 2010: Salt panel: Angelina Jolie

Considering that worldwide mega-star Angelina Jolie‘s new action-spy movie, Salt, was raring up for release this weekend, it seemed a bit strange that they would hold a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2010.

Nevertheless, the panel was held and Jolie herself was in attendance (to the many dropping jaws of fanboys galore, no doubt) to promote her new venture. She was joined by Liev Schreiber, director Phillip Noyce, and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

The movie tells the story of a CIA agent who’s accused of being an undercover Russian spy. The accusations force her to go on the run, trying her best to avoid being captured while also attempting to prove her innocence.

Because Salt was all but out when the panel was held, not much was shared here. It was just a cameo appearance of sorts to say hi to the Comic-Con faithful, show some footage, and answer fan questions. Things started off with trailer for the movie. Surely almost everyone there had seen something from the movie already, but it’s always nice for those who are excited about a movie to see something new.

SDCC 2010: Mondo Marvel Reveals Future Books

That’s right Marvel Zombies, the Mondo Marvel panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con started off with a bang. Marvel’s new Senior V.P. Creator and Content Development C.B. Cebulski announced a little over 10 new series and limited series.

This was all followed up by Brian Michael Bendis saying he was excited that the character Killraven was coming back to the mainstream. Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s newly appointed Head of Television, talked about the upcoming plans for some Marvel anime project, the first of which is featuring Iron Man.

Well I should probably jump right into it then because what everyone is here for, just like at the panel, was the titles being announced. The first announcement was that a new Loki series starting in October 2010. Not many more details could be announced for this series.

SDCC 2010: Resident Evil: Afterlife panel: Milla Jovovich 06

The panel for Resident Evil: Afterlife was held at Comic-Con 2010 this past weekend. This is a movie with an uphill battle in front of it due to the fact that quality has seemed to go down with each new movie released since the first, and that it’s a movie that fully embraces the hostile 3D takeover currently going on.

The panel opens with the introductions of director Paul W.S. Anderson and stars Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, and Wentworth Miller. They kick things off by premiering the exclusive look at the recently released first trailer in its 3D form. If you’ve not seen the regular 2D trailer, you can check it out below to see what was shown.

The first topic discussed is of course 3D, and Anderson goes into how he’s always liked 3D and always thought it was a great idea. But it wasn’t until James Cameron came around with Avatar that the director knew it was something really special, and that he not only needed his new movie in 3D, but he had to use the same cameras that Cameron used. He thinks eventually 3D will be the benchmark in filmmaking and he plans on making all of his movies using it from here on out.

SDCC 2010: ‘Let Me In’ Panel & Footage Description

SDCC 2010: Let Me In panel: Chloe Moretz

Nothing makes true movie fans more angry than hearing about a brilliant foreign film getting an American remake, sometimes before the original is even released itself. Examples include The Ring (Ringu), The Grudge (Ju-On), Quarantine ([REC]), and the latest title, Let Me In, which is a remake of Swedish hit Let the Right One In.

The thing about Let Me In, however, is that the more people see and hear of it, the more it begins to look like it might become a legit new film. This possibility was elevated to a new level this past weekend during Comic-Con 2010, where the movie and its cast and crew made a lot of people believers.

The panel opens with a new trailer from the movie. The first trailer was decent but this new trailer really shows off how dark this movie will be, and some of the chemistry that the film’s two young stars share with one another.

Next up comes the introduction of director Matt Reeves, stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Richard Jenkins, and Chloe Moretz.

SDCC 2010: James Gunn’s ‘Super’ Panel With Nathan Fillion, Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page & More!

SDCC 2010: Super Panel: Rainn Wilson 03Another highly entertaining panel that was held during San Diego Comic Con 2010 was the one for James Gunn‘s hero movie, Super. Gunn is best known as the director of the wonderful horror-comedy Slither, and he also wrote the screenplays for Scooby-Doo and Dawn of the Dead.

Super had one of the better panel lineups, bringing out Gunn, stars Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Nathan Fillion, Liv Tyler, Michael Rooker, and producers Ted Hope and Miranda Bailey.

The movie sounds like it’s along the same lines as Kick-Ass where people without superpowers fight evil. In it, Wilson plays the lead character, who calls himself the Crimson Bolt. He has no powers, but he does have a wrench he likes to use in confrontational situations. Looking at the cast and concept, you would think this was primed for gut-busting humor, but apparently it’s a very dark comedy with a lot of dramatic situations.

SDCC 2010: Action Stars Assemble At ‘The Expendables’ Panel

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

SDCC 2010: The Expendables panel: Sylvester Stallone 02A panel for Sylvester Stallone‘s action overdrive movie, The Expendables was held early on at Comic Con 2010. This is one of the movies that you’ve likely seen a ton of times via TV spots and trailers that have been released over the past few months. The Expendables brings together a who’s who of action stars in an attempt to reclaim the beauty and brutality that were the action films of the ’80s, and nothing could sound more exciting.

The panel — moderated by Ain’t It Cools’ own head geek, Harry Knowles — featured Stallone, who wrote, directed, and starred in the movie. He was joined by Terry Crews, who offered up a little Old Spice P-P-P-P-P-P-POWER! by ripping his shirt open when he came out, Dolph Lundgren, UFC legend Randy Couture, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Bruce Willis, who peeked in for a few minutes having been there already for the RED panel. A cameo by a cameo actor — how perfectly fitting.

Because the movie has been known for so long, not a lot needed to be said. The panel was really just a chance to get an awesome collection of action stars out there to chat a bit about the movie, making it, and other things.

Sony was present at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, and though they didn’t show off anything exciting from their reboot of Spider-Man, they did bring plenty of goodies to present for Priest, The Good Guys, and The Green Hornet.

They began with the new adaptation of Tokyo Pop graphic novel, Priest. The movie stars Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Stephen Moyer, Karl Urban, and Maggie Q, who were all in attendance. The movie tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world that’s been devastated by centuries of war between humans and vampires. A priest (Bettany), who fought in the last big war, comes out of hiding to track down some vampires who kidnapped his niece.

The panel opened with a teaser trailer (which you can actually see below…though I’m not sure for how long). After that they go into some questions for the group. Basically just questions about what drew them to the film and and Bettany re-teaming with director Scott Stewart (Legion) and such.

Be sure to click over and check out the teaser while it still works!

SDCC 2010: Chuck vs. Comic Con PanelBig news for fans of NBC’s Chuck came on Saturday at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con as the actress set to play Chuck’s mom in season 4 was revealed, and it’s none other than Linda Hamilton (The Terminator). In a show that has prided itself on having a lot of popular guest stars may have topped itself with this casting. Creators Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz spoke about the upcoming season and how the main plot running through the season will be Chuck’s (Zachary Levi) search for his mother.

If you ever get a chance to come to SDCC, I highly recommend checking out the Chuck panel, as it’s always a good time. This year’s panel opened with the Hamilton announcement and then cut into a performance by series band Jeffster dancing to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance“. Then the cast was introduced and discussed the upcoming season as well as their yearly “Thank You” to the fans. If you’re a fan of the show, you always feel very appreciated after seeing one of their panels, and you can tell that this is a show with a very passionate fan base.

SDCC 2010: Marvel Shows Off New ‘Thor’ Footage

Marvel Studios Thor Chris HemsworthMarvel Studios gave fans at 2010 San Diego Comic-Con the very first look at their upcoming 3D feature film Thor, which isn’t due in theaters until 2011.

The panel included Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Kat Dennings, and director Kenneth Branagh, as well as producer Kevin Feige.

One valuable piece of information about the film was disclosed by director Branagh concerning Thor’s mortal life.

“We have some Don Blake surprises in this movie. So do not assume that he is not included,” Branagh revealed.

As far as the video they screened, I was ultimately satisfied. The 3D elements didn’t overpower the overall visuals and instead (at least from what I saw) added texture and a bit of depth to a few scenes. See the full description of the footage here below.

I’ll admit I was worried the movie was far too plastic and bright judging from the screen shots they provided in the week prior to SDCC. But I am happy to say that from the footage screened to the audience, I am fairly confident they could actually pull this off.

SDCC 2010: Kevin Feige Responds To Hulk Recasting Decision (Sort Of)

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

The Incredible HulkAt the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con today, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, off-handedly responded to a fan question about the decision to recast the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the upcoming Avengers film rather than asking Edward Norton to reprise the role from The Incredible Hulk.

“He’s not here today,” Feige said in response to the question during the Marvel Studios panel, which was simply “Ed Norton?”. He then basically took a page out of Norton’s classy statement explaining why he wasn’t attached to the project and declared that the panel wasn’t quite over (perhaps eluding to the Avengers announcement that came later on).

The crowd’s reaction, a mix of silence and booing across the room, seemed less than satisfied. This was also the case during the Avengers cast announcement when Avengers co-star and Comic-Con favorite Robert Downey Jr. introduced Mark Ruffalo, who then was brought on stage.
