SDCC17

Every year, fans come in droves to San Diego Comic Con. Among those fans, there are those who brave the heat and wear elaborate costumes to show their support for their favorite characters. Extensive research, planning, and construction can go into these labors of love. Other times, it’s just cardboard and paint. Whatever the level of skill and commitment, one truth is clear: everyone loves cosplay! Without further ado, here are some of the cosplayers we encountered at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

Doctor Who 2017 Christmas Special TrailerAs Peter Capaldi‘s 12th Doctor prepares for his swan song in this years Christmas Special, Twice Upon a Time, he was nice enough to stop by Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, bringing a long a few friends for their final Doctor Who SDCC appearances. Outgoing showrunner Steven Moffat and now former companion (who confirmed that Bill will make a return in the special,) Pearl Mackie with both on hand as well.

And while filming had just completed on the special, that Moffat summarized as both the first and twelfth Doctor srefusing to regenerate and going on an adventure with Mark Gatiss (who was also in attendance,) they did show the trailer for it that you can watch below: (more…)

The ‘Robot Chicken: The Walking Dead’ Trailer

Let’s be honest here, with The Walking Dead about to launch into it’s 8th season (you can watch the trailer here,) we’ve been seen endless tortures, cannibalism, graphic violence, pudding that has to be way past its expiration date, and more unspeakable horrors. It’s almost like like in the zombie apocalypse isn’t fun at all. Where is the singing? Where is the dancing? Where are the outdated pop-culture references?

Well, apparently they are over at Adult Swim’s  forthcoming Robot Chicken’s The Walking Dead Special, the trailer for which just premiered at San Diego Comic-Con. Check it out: (more…)

‘Westworld’ Season 2 Trailer Promises a Bloodbath

You will recall that when we came to the end of Westworld last fall, the robot uprising officially began when Dolores plugged her maker at 10 paces and launched into a massacre against a group of park employees, investors and guests who had gathered there to celebrate the next phase of the park. Whoops. That’s what happens when you rape and kill a robot homesteader again, and again, and again, she’s going to take it personally. But the party that ended in gunfire is not the last bit of violence to affect Westworld. As you can see in the trailer for season two, it was just the beginning.  (more…)

Promising a departure from the previous Thor films, Thor: Ragnarok promises to be a “buddy cop” action movie with heart and humor. We’ve already seen the first trailer and thanks to Led Zepplin, was an incredibly awesome. You couldn’t help but scream out “Yes” along with Thor Odinson as he ran into The Hulk in his full-on “Planet Hulk” attire.  The third Thor film is already off to a good start.

This being Comic-Con, and Thor: Ragnarok being on everyone’s radar, it makes perfect sense that the official trailer (the first one was a teaser trailer after all) today at Marvel’s Hall H panel. Boy did they not disappoint! (more…)

It’s been months since there’s been any substantial news regarding Captain Marvel, the first female solo film outta Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. But today, as one might have assumed they would, Marvel gave a little something something during their panel at San Diego Comic Con. And by a little something, we’re talking an unexpected (and legally confounding) alien race, as well an interesting timeline in the MCU.  (more…)

Rather famously, the first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery didn’t win over many fans, whether it was legitimate fan concerns about canon, or the concerns of the lunatic fringe that don’t like seeing a black woman be a focus of the show. “Star Trek has always been pictorial of diversity and universality and unity,” said series star Sonequa Martin-Green. “If you say you love the legacy of Star Trek, but you don’t love that, then you’ve missed it. I encourage you to come on the journey with us.” At San Diego Comic Con, the journey began with a new trailer.  (more…)

What is perhaps the biggest thing to come out of San Diego Comic Con today has nothing to do with a big screen franchise, but rather the small screen adventures of a small group of pre-teens who know all too well what’s lurking in the dark. For the kids of Hawkins in 1984, horror is about to look them right in the eyes as they’re forced to concede that things are not as normal in their town as they appear. In other words, this October, they will have to fight for their lives inside a killer, thriller night called Stranger Things 2(more…)
