    Terrific Lizard Footage Revealed In 3D During 'Amazing Spider-Man' At Comic-Con '11

    Andrew Garfield Says: "We’re Approaching 'Spider-Man' Like It’s Shakespeare, Or A Greek Myth"The cast of "Total Recall" were ushered off the stage while a massive title card for "The Amazing Spider-Man" was emblazoned on the screen behind them. Before Garman introduced anyone, he showed the film’s theatrical trailer, which hit the Internet just a few days ago, but was admittedly much more impressive on the big screen and in 3D. Apparently, it even knocked out star Andrew Garfield because he appeared in front of the microphone where attendees ask their questions – in a homemade Spider-Man suit, no less – and read an impassioned letter he wrote...

    Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale & Bryan Cranston Talk Remaking A Wacko Sci-Fi ClassicAfter "30 Minutes or Less" at yesterday's Columbia panel at Comic-Con 2011, "Total Recall" stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston and director Len Wiseman took the stage to show footage and field questions from the audience. “We’re halfway through shooting so we don’t have enough to put together a trailer, but I know not seeing something is a big bummer. So it’s the first sequence we shot; it’s a scene, it’s very rough, and it’s cut together with a lot of pre-vis.” Although he was certainly correct that the footage was...

    Comic-Con '11: 'Ghost Rider 2' Boasts It Will "Fuck Up Your Shit" Come February 2012

    'Spirit Of Vengeance' Co-Star Idris Elba Says He Would Love To Play 'Power Man' Character Luke CageBookended by a title card that read “fucking your shit up in 3D February 2012,” the "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" footage showcased co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's particularly physical style of filmmaking. Both filmmakers ran cameras simultaneously in certain shots, Taylor held on to moving motorcycles wearing only rollerblades as he filmed the action, and the two of them generally disregarded their personal safety as they shot some fairly epic action sequences. When asked whether they’ve ever been hurt, Neveldine knocked on...

    Comic-Con '11: The Team Behind 'The Amazing Spider-Man' On Why The Reboot Was Necessary

    Seth Rogen & Zac Efron Team For R-Rated Comedy At Universal

    While Universal killed two high-profile, risky, ambitious efforts recently, putting the kibosh on Guillermo del Toro's "At the Mountains of Madness" and Ron Howard's "The Dark Tower," the studio isn't afraid to spend money. It's just that those holding the purse strings are choosing wisely and if you've been paying attention to the box office this summer, there is one genre that is not only making mad bank, but is also, generally speaking, pretty cost-effective: the R-rated comedy. "The Hangover Part II," "Horrible Bosses" and most importantly, from Universal's perspective, "Bridesmaids," have been smash successes. So it's no surprise then th...
