Hopefully the first full trailer will hit the Internet sometime early next week. Until then, you’ll have to scratch that Hunger Games itch with this teaser. (more…)

SDCC14: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Trailer Revealed

George Miller’s Justice League fell apart and he’s spent the majority of the last three decades working on dramas and kids films (to much acclaim, I might add), so when it was announced that he would return to the Max Max franchise that had sat rotting in the dessert since 1985, a little bit of doubt crept in. Could Miller re-find the magic after so much time away from the dessert wasteland? Could he sell Mad Max to a new audience that has grown accustomed to violent post-apocalyptic tales and would the old audience reject a continuation of the franchise without Mel Gibson?

Godzilla

When the latest incarnation of Godzilla was announced, there was an understandable amount of trepidation concerning the project. After the last Godzilla movie, everyone expected yet another disaster of epic (and expensive) proportions. But the new Godzilla was met with mostly positive reactions and brought in a fair bit of cash. So naturally, Legendary Pictures is looking to capitalize on that and continue the franchise. Today at SDCC, Gareth Edwards announced that Godzilla 2 is indeed coming. What’s more, the movie will feature a plethora of the big lizard’s classic enemies. Read on for some serious name dropping.
