    Comic-Con Wrap: from 'Walking Dead' Zombie-Proof Car and 'Twilight' Finale to Marvel Panel; Costume Photo Gallery

    Comic-Con is great fun if you don't have to be in Hall H. I'd skip it and watch the panels on YouTube if I didn't want to see the early footage. The Hall H security was so tight this year that even the studio PR execs were complaining about trying to get their people in. I bargained for passes for e...

    Comic-Con: Even Without Fox, 'Dark Knight,' or 'Star Trek,' Plenty to See, from Burton and Jackson to 'Game of Thrones'

    Comic-Con is so noisy and logistically energy-draining--they're expecting 130,000 attendees this year-- that it's tempting to just watch the Hall H panel videos from afar. Isn't the "Twilight" series over already? (Actually, no, and the sad death of a fan who was struck by a ca...

    Career Watch: The Commodification of Johnny Depp

    Johnny Depp's career has been set on cruise control for years, and it's worked splendidly. He's Hollywood's highest-paid actor along with Will Smith, received not one but two Golden Globe nominations in 2011 (for two of his worst films) and is happy getting paid stupid amounts of mon...

    Burton and Depp's 'Dark Shadows': Review Round-Up

    What else to expect? The character posters from Tim Burton's upcoming "Dark Shadows" are pale, garish, gothic, and packed with attitude. In an era when advance marketing gets started earlier than ever, with less than a month before the May 11th release, Warner Bros. finally debuted their campy fir...
