The Vampire Diaries panel appeared at Comic-Con today to talk about the upcoming fourth season of the CW series. Joining the stage were stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Steven R. McQueen, Michael Trevino, Zach Roerig and executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson. Cast members fielded questions from the moderator and their enthusiastic fan base. The third season of The Vampire Diaries will also appear on DVD/Blu-ray on September 11th. Hit the jump to check out my panel recap and click here for all of our ongoing Comic-Con coverage.
On the last episode of The CW drama series The Vampire Diaries, called “Dangerous Liaisons,” viewers learned that the mother of the Original vampires is not quite as loving of her children as she appears. With her nefarious plan set in motion, thanks in part to Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) and the blood of the doppleganger, things are sure to get more intense, leading up to the Season 3 finale.
During a recent interview to hint at what’s to come, executive producer/writer Julie Plec talked about the Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) love triangle that Elena is stuck in, exploring Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) humanity, whether or not any of the Originals will survive what’s been set in motion, where the Klaus and Caroline (Candice Accola) relationship could be headed and where that leaves Tyler (Michael Trevino), the unique position that Matt (Zach Roerig) is in as one of the only humans left in Mystic Falls, what’s in store for Bonnie (Kat Graham) and her mother, how Alaric’s (Matthew Davis) ring failing is going to be causing some problems, that Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) will return before the end of the season, and that viewers cannot be certain about the fate of anyone. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
In this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, entitled “The End of the Affair,” family ties will be revealed, relationships will be explained and familiar faces will return, and it’s only the third episode into Season 3. Collider was one of a handful of outlets invited over to The CW offices to view the episode and all of its edge-of-your-seat moments a day early, and see what hints we could get executive producer/writer Julie Plec to tease, in regard to the upcoming season.
While she didn’t give any specifics or major reveals, Julie Plec did talk about how this episode is just the beginning of what viewers will see of the Originals’ history and origin, what these revelations will do to the relationship between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev), that the chemistry between Elena and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) will be illuminated more as a result, what the true agenda of the ghosts visiting Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) is, when Bonnie (Katerina Graham) will return, how things will develop between Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino), and that viewers should always dread character deaths. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
The first teaser trailer for Alexandre Aja’s Piranha 3D has hit the net. While the trailer isn’t an official release as it was leaked onto YouTube, if you hit the jump fast enough, it might still be there.
The reason the teaser is online is it was attached to most prints of Youth in Revolt. Since both films are being released by the Weinstein Company, movie audiences landed an early look and someone recorded it. I figure an official release will happen either this weekend or on Monday. So, as I said, watch this fast. This movie looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
Piranha 3D stars Elisabeth Shue, Steven R. McQueen, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd, Jerry O’Connell, Dina Meyer, Jessica Szohr and Riley Steele.
