SDCC ’18: ‘Bumblebee’ Got The Touch and Stole Hall H In a packed Hall H Friday, Bumblebee and John Cena stole the show with a little help from Stan Bush. Most Comic-Cons, Saturday is the day you want to devote your line-waiting energy. With Marvel pulling out, the day is pretty much left for Warner Bros. and the DCEU to dominate. That line started forming, unofficially, Thursday afternoon, leaving Hall H to be an easily attainable destination for the Friday crowd. I walked under the tents at 4:00 AM that morning and scored some decent seats inside without any fuss. A brave new Comic-Con world. The Friday festivities were an eclectic lot.

Full Comic-Con Trailer for 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' "Magic blooms only in rare souls… Still we must skulk in the shadows."

This epic sequel is once again directed by David Yates, the next chapter in the newest J.K. Rowling spin-off series. Eddie Redmayne returns as magizoologist Newt Scamander, and the rest of the key cast is back: Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Carmen Ejogo, Zoe Kravitz, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol.

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS Has A Trailer When Gareth Edwards' version of Godzilla premièred in 2014, it was already known that if successful, Warner Brothers and Legendary were going to try and create a 'monsterverse'. Last year, Kong: Skull Island not only embraced those plans, but (in a post-credit scene) even provided a sneak peek at who would be appearing: giant butterfly Mothra, huge flying reptile Rodan, and the three-headed flying dragon King Ghidorah. Well, Warner Brothers has just released their trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, directed by Michael Dougherty of Krampus fame.

Andrew Lincoln Confirms His Departure from ‘The Walking Dead,’ Dan Fogler and Samantha Morton Join the Cast [Comic-Con 2018] AMC’s The Walking Dead has been on the air for nearly a decade, but it’s ready to become a whole new show in season 9. Following in the footsteps of the comic that inspired it, the newest storyline is something of a soft reboot, a new foundation on which to give the entire series a new coat of paint. A jump forward in time will take the characters to a new place. A new showrunner will guide the whole thing.

Glass Trailer Is Here, Uniting Unbreakable and Split The first trailer for director M. Night Shyamalan's Glass made its debut at San Diego Comic-Con.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Deleted Scene Joins the Fans in Blaming Star-Lord [Comic-Con 2018] Marvel Studios isn’t having a panel at San Diego Comic-Con International 2018, but they did show up…in the parking lot. They have a pop-up offsite event at The Experience, located next to Petco Park. They’re calling it the “Group Hug,” and the experience is meant to give fans a way to cope from the climactic events of Avengers: Infinity War. Fans who wait in line for the Group Hug therapy session are rewarded with some cool swag and a never-before-seen deleted scene from the movie.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Brings Multiple Dimensions Together, Including Spider-Ham [Comic-Con 2018] We’ve had three big screen versions of Spider-Man over the past couple decades, but we’ve never had a wallcrawler like the one we’ll see in this fall’s animated comic book movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. This time, it’s young Miles Morales (Shameik Moore of Dope) taking the mantle of Spider-Man, but he’s not the only one with spider-like super powers. There’s still an older Peter Parker bumming around (voiced by Jake Johnson), and there’s also Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld).

Jennifer Connelly Feels the Need For Speed, Joins ‘Top Gun 2’ Top Gun 2, aka Top Gun: Maverick, may have just found its new leading lady: Jennifer Connelly. Connelly is in early talks to join Tom Cruise and Miles Teller in the sequel to the 1986 high-flying action flick. More Jennifer Connelly in movies is never a bad thing, so let’s all remain optimistic about the actress joining the Top Gun 2 cast. THR is reporting that Connelly is in talks to play the female lead in the film, described as “a single mother who runs a local bar near the Navy base.” Could this mean Connelly might be playing Tom Cruise’s new love interest?

Heaven help us, our first glimpse of Good Omens has arrived. A behind-the-scenes Good Omens sneak peek has been released, giving us a glimpse at the Amazon miniseries starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen. And the series looks as offbeat and weird as the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett 1990 novel that inspired it — and as amazing as Michael Sheen’s platinum blonde hair. Good Omens Sneak Peek Following the Good Omens panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Amazon has released a behind-the-scenes Good Omens featurette online.

Warner Bros. brought the cast and crew of The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part to Comic-Con for a brisk panel, letting the cast riff before showing off new footage. Anyone hoping that the sequel will maintain the anarchic spirit of the first movie will be very pleased by what was on display here. The panel opened with an animated segment, complete with a LEGO minifig version of panel moderator Aisha Tyler. An introduction by Emmett (Chris Pratt), Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), and Batman (Will Arnett) is interrupted by the arrival of Jason Momoa’s bro’d out Aquaman.

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Reboot is Happening with a Black Lead, Joss Whedon Involved Here’s a bit of breaking news, as if everything happening at San Diego Comic-Con weren’t enough: after some theoretical rumblings earlier this year, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot is now officially in development.

The theme of this week’s Cloak & Dagger episode, “Ghost Stories,” seems to be all about revelations. This episode was the anniversary of the deaths of both Tyrone and Tandy’s loved ones, so the overarching spirit of melancholy was even more intense than usual. But the mood was heightened by truths (both subtle and not-so-subtle) that were revealed over the course of the episode. Here’s what we learned this week. Tandy’s Dad Is A Monster Up until now, we’ve only seen Tandy’s dad, Nathan, through Tandy’s eyes.

(Welcome to The Dark Knight Legacy, a series of articles that explore Christopher Nolan’s superhero masterpiece in celebration of its 10th anniversary.) Here we are: 10 years later and we’re all talking about The Dark Knight again. But why is this film so widely regarded?

Aside from a peek at IT: CHAPTER TWO and a big look at THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA at "ScareDiego" at Comic Con this year, we also got a look at some scenes from THE NUN, which is a spinoff of the character first introduced in James Wans' THE CONJURING 2. Director Corin Hardy was on hand (and with a creepy Nun doll in pocket) and shared with me why he wanted to take on THE NUN, what makes a... Read More...

All of the ingredients are here for something special, but the end result is more than a little under-baked. It’s not quite a sub-genre, but films about people (police or otherwise) having to fight their way through enemy territory are wickedly appealing. From The Warriors (1979) and Trespass (1992) to The Raid (2011) and Dredd (2012), it’s an irresistible premise and difficult to mess up — all it needs are compelling characters and thrilling action.

Explore strange new worlds in the Comic-Con trailer for Star Trek: Discovery When Star Trek: Discovery returns for its second season early next year, it will be bringing more than a few familiar faces along with it. During the final moments of the first season of the latest Star Trek series, the crew received a distress call from the U.S.S. Enterprise, which at this point in history was captained by Christopher Pike (Anson Mount). During the Star Trek: Discovery panel at San... Read More...

Movie-goers can’t resist a true story of triumph, which might explain why there are now six new Thai cave rescue movies in the works. You read that right: six. You likely know the story by now, even if you don’t know all the details: twelve young soccer (well, technically, football) players and their coach entered Tham Luang cave in Thailand and became trapped after heavy rains flooded the cave. Efforts to save the team proved extremely difficult, and one rescuer – a former Thai Navy SEAL – died of asphyxiation. Eventually, though, they were rescued.

The creators of Hulu’s new Stephen King-inspired horror series Castle Rock sat down at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 to offer some insight into the story. Or at least, as much insight as they possibly could without spoiling too much. One thing creators Dustin Thomason and Sam Shaw could confirm: Castle Rock will be an anthology series, with each new season covering not just a different story, but a different type of Stephen King story Castle Rock is a mystery box series. How could it not be – it has J.J. Abrams listed as an executive producer.

The future interconnected DC live-action movies will now be known as the Worlds of DC.

‘The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot’ Has Far More to Offer Than An Amazing Title [Fantasia Film Festival] Even if the feature film debut from writer/director Robert D. Krzykowski was the single worst film of the year, it would still win the award for the greatest and most honest title of any movie ever: The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot.

FOX TV and Marvel Television has just released the official trailer for The Gifted season two and it's pretty damn incredible as the Mutant Underground face-off against Polaris, Andy, and more!

It's been several years since Japanese director Satoshi Miki blessed the world with a new film. Miki's unique sense of humor, ability to write endearing characters, and skewed worldview make him one of our favorite filmmakers, and one from whom new work is always greeted with anticipation. His latest film, the thoroughly-titled Louder! Can't Hear What You're Singin', Wimp! is yet another winner, and a feather in Miki's cap that is sure to please fans of his previous work and those interested in oddball Japanese indie comedy.

Legends of Tomorrow had arguably the best cliffhanger this past May and now, The CW has shared new details about the coming fourth season as well as a shagadelic new trailer, featuring John Constantine!
