Wonder Woman header image

Normally, major studios reserve some of their exclusive first look footage reveals for a bigger fan convention venue like the San Diego Comic-Con. But there are a few who do make it out to the Anaheim, CA area for WonderCon. This year is no different with Warner Bros giving fans a sneak peek at their upcoming slate of DCEU films. The only difference is that I don’t have to wait hours on end to for a wristband or sleeping on concrete to get inside an arena.

With Wonder Woman nearly completed and Zack Snyder working hard on Justice League, attendees were treated to an early look at both films. Check out our coverage below.

Leigh Whannell and Lin Shaye in Insidious

Focus Features and Blumhouse Productions’ Insidious: Chapter 3 takes a trip back in time before the events of the demons that haunted the Lambert family. Leigh Whannell makes his directorial debut replacing James Wan, who left to direct Furious 7.

Having already written and starred in the first two chapters, Whannell seemed like a natural fit to direct the third. However, in our roundtable interview the director revealed that there were some fears about coming on to a sequel that already has a deep mythology and a fanbase. He also talks about some of the difficulties of writing, directing, and acting simultaneously, the use of practical effects over CG, and meeting expectations. Hit the jump for the interview.

Tom Hardy In Mad Max: Fury Road

This year’s WonderCon was a relatively quiet one considering it fell on Easter Weekend. Still, studios were generous enough to stop by and present some scenes for their upcoming Summer tentpoles. At the Warner Bros. panel, attendees were treated to some footage from Mad Max: Fury Road. Unfortunately director George Miller, and stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, and Nicholas Hoult were unable to attend the event to talk about what is expected to be one of the biggest films of the Summer. However, the footage made up for their absence.

The studio also presented Brad Peyton‘s disaster thriller San Andreas, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Carla Gugino, and Alexandra Daddario. Hit the jump to to read about their presentation.

Much Ado About Nothing panel banner

Joss Whedon’s cinematic adaptation of the classic William Shakespeare tome Much Ado About Nothing kicked off the Sunday edition of the 2013 WonderCon in Anaheim, CA today in the arena at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The film, which is in black and white and is about a far as you can get from Whedon’s past projects, which include last year’s gold plated smash success The Avengers, (written and directed by the famed wordsmith Whedon) is set for a national release soon to theaters, coming off of a slow climb since late last year when it was showcased at various film festivals. Early word of mouth and reviews have been generally positive, and it’s definitely a nice departure of sorts for Whedon to take on a project in Much Ado About Nothing that has nothing do with costumes, special effects and classic stereotypical action/comic book film eye candy, instead focusing on having skilled actors spout complex dialogue and narrative.
