His entrance for the Iron Man 3 panel is worth watching several times.
Warner Brothers hurried to squash the “Hobbit Trilogy” rumor than Jackson accidentally set off at Comic con.
According to Variety:
Studio spokespeople told Variety, adding that there are “no planned or surprise announcements” involving a third film. “The plan was always for two.”
So any and all extra footage Jackson is pushing to shoot will probably just make for an extra extra long extenededededededed edition.
Glad that’s cleared up.
Nothing about the next companion, and nearly mum on the 50th Anniversary special. The comic con panel for Dr Who functioned mostly as a final victory lap for the Ponds as companions.
What they did tell us, plus Nerd HQ’s Q&A with Matt Smith, Karen Gillan & Arthur Darvill, after the jump.
I didn’t think they’d put it up on line, due to the November special for Science Channel, but I should have had more faith.
Ladies and Gentlemen and Emily, for those of us who didn’t go to comic con, the Firefly Panel.
I’m going to blame his Lord of the Rings Trilogy for this…apparently one of the stories to come out of comic-con yesterday was that Jackson is looking for permission to go back and shoot some more footage from the Appendices and split his second film “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” into two films, bringing the total number of films for his “The Hobbit” prequel up to three.
And if the reaction to his 12 minutes of footage screened at The Hobbit comic-con panel was any indication, he’ll get it too.
In answer to a fan asked question during the panel: “What’s your favorite crazy fan story?” Executive producer Tim Minear responded: “Remember the time we were off the air for 10 years and thousands of people showed up to see us?”
After the jump, a couple of pics from the one hour special, a couple of pics from the panel, and a quote from EW’s liveblog about the best moment of the panel.
Of the three (yes three!) Oz reboots coming out in the next year or so, it’s the live action prequel focusing on how the Wizard got to Oz in the first place that strikes me as the best bet for not sucking. This trailer, which previewed at comiccon, is the first visual evidence that this may be fact.
Olenna “Queen of Thorns” Tyrell will be played by Diana Frakking Rigg.
Also, we have a premiere date: Sunday, MARCH 31, 2013.
Other casting news after the jump, plus other spoiler talk and my favorite quote from the comic con panel.
I was a TNG kid. Which is why I misted up when Picard said “Let’s see what’s out there.” while watching this video.
Some of the more interesting choices made by those doing the restoring–since TNG was originally shot for TV in 4:3, the blu-ray will honor that, despite the majority of households having upgraded to 16:9 wide-screen TVs.
For those of us unlucky enough to be unable to attend SDCC, and who will therefore miss the ten year Firefly reunion, FEAR NOT!
To celebrate the cult-favorite sci-fi drama’s 10th anniversary, Science Channel is shooting a new one-hour special chronicling the Firefly cast reunion at Comic-Con this week.
The special — titled Browncoats Unite — will include footage fromFriday’s reunion panel, featuring several members of the original team including star Nathan Fillion and creator Joss Whedon. Plus, the cast is shooting an in-depth behind-the-scenes roundtable interview that will dive deeper into burning fan questions about the beloved series. Both the panel and the roundtable will be moderated byEntertainment Weekly‘s own Jeff Jensen.
Science Channel have been doing the Firefly thing now for a while with random marathons that always find their way onto my TV. I am stoked for this special!
or to quote Emily:
there will be the reunion special on Science Channel on November 11, and to that I say:
