Earlier this week we learned that this cool Jurassic World poster designed by Mark Englert would be available at Comic-Con.  The instructions said to text JURASSIC to 834567 for the poster drop information.  It turns out part of the fun was to find the silver Jurassic World Mercedes Benz on the streets of San Diego that was handing out the posters.  Hard to say for sure, but this thing looks rugged enough to handle some dinosaur action.  I would not be surprised to see it make an appearance.

Hit the jump for pictures of the car.  Chris PrattBryce Dallas HowardVincent D’OnofrioIrrfan KhanNick RobinsonTy SimpkinsJake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer star in the sequel.  Directed by Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.

Legendary unveiled the first Warcraft movie logo at their Comic-Con booth tonight and uploaded it to Twitter for the rest of us.  [Update: Legendary also brought a few props from the movie to display.]  Duncan Jones is directing the World of Warcraft feature adaptation and revealed last year that the story centers on “Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games.”

We now have a glimpse of concept art, a set image of Jones at work, and this title logo.  Legendary has a panel in Hall H on Saturday, and I bet they are preparing to reveal more from the movie after the studio brought a Warcraft teaser trailer to Comic-Con 2013.  Starring Paula Patton, Travis Fimmel, Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown, Warcraft opens March 11, 2016.  Check out the full Warcraft movie logo after the jump.

First ART AND CRAFT Trailer and Poster: Documentary Follows Benevolent Art Forger Mark Landis

by     Posted One week ago

art and craft trailer mark landis

Oscilloscope has released the first Art and Craft trailer and poster.  The documentary centers on prolific and talented art forger Mark Landis.  Landis successfully mimicked everyone from Picasso to Walt Disney to convince a number of museums that he offered authentic work.  The catch: Landis wasn’t in it for the money.  He posed as a philanthropic donor, a grieving executor of a family member’s will, and a Jesuit priest to donate hundreds of works over several decades.  The documentary explores Landis’ motives as his foil, registrar Matthew Leininger, fights to expose the forgeries.

Directed by Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman and co-directed by Mark BeckerArt and Craft opens in New York September 19 before expanding to other cities.  Watch the Art and Craft trailer after the break.

Yaron Zilberman (A Late Quartet) has signed on to write and direct a feature adaptation of Orson Scott Card‘s sci-fi short story “Unaccompanied Sonata.”  The story centers on a musical prodigy who is raised in an isolated cabin away from music of any kind to protect his compositions from outside influence.  He eventually discovers Bach at age 30, but when caught by a “Watcher,” the former prodigy is forbidden by law from making music ever again.

Nominated for the Nebula Best Short Story in 1979 and Hugo Best Short Story in 1980, “Unaccompanied Sonata” was published two years after Card published the precursor short story “Ender’s Game.”  The feature title will be shortened to Sonata.  Hit the jump for quotes from Card and Zilberman to mark the occasion.

Kevin Tancharoen to Direct THE GUNS OF CHRISTMAS PAST; Loosely Based on A CHRISTMAS CAROL

guns of christmas past kevin tancharoen

Kevin Tancharoen (Mortal Kombat: Legacy) has signed on to direct The Guns of Christmas Past.  The script by Andrew Hilton is very loosely based on the classic Charles Dickens tale A Christmas Carol.  The story centers on a retired hitman in Chicago on Christmas Eve.  The hitman must fight three unlikely adversaries from his past, present, and future while on a mission to avenge the death of a friend.  It sounds like a fun premise—after seeing his work in the Mortal Kombat realm, I am happy to see Tancharoen get a chance with a feature budget to make an action movie with a goofy story.

Deadline reports Zev Foreman and Nicolas Chartier will produce The Guns of Christmas Past for Voltage Pictures.

Darren Lynn Bousman to Direct Sci-Fi Action Movie APEX; Described as PREDATOR Meets CALL OF DUTY

Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV) is set to direct the independent sci-fi action movie Apex.  The project, scripted by James E. Cavanaugh, is described as Predator meets Call of Duty.  A special ops unit is sent to retrieve a WMD from North Korea and ends up transported to another world where they must fight a dangerous alien race.  It’s an interesting premise—sounds like it could make a nice double feature with Edge of Tomorrow.  I am curious to see what Bousman and 2511 Productions can do with an indie budget to create an alien world.

Hit the jump for quotes from Bousman on his vision for Apex.

A Robot Chicken clip surfaced earlier this week that lampoons Star Trek: The Next Genration, asking who exactly takes over when the Enterprise crew we know and love goes to bed.  The captain of the night crew has his own twist on the classic introduction:

“Space, the final frontier.  These are the 11pm-7am voyages of the Enterprise’s night crew.  It’s continuing mission is to party.”

If you are more of a Star Trek fan than a Robot Chicken lover, you will appreciate that Patrick Stewart and Chris Pine get in on the fun as part of the voice cast.  Watch the Star Trek Robot Chicken clip after the jump.

Fox Cancels HIEROGLYPH Before It Ever Airs

Last October, Fox ordered the adventure series Hieroglyph straight to series with 13 episodes.  This was an unusual move for a broadcast network with an unknown property.  It was part of former Fox Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly‘s plan to move Fox away from the traditional pilot season model.  Reilly’s pitch for Hieroglyph:

“We wanted to do a show about deceit, sex, intrigue in the court and fantastical goings-on—no better place to set that than ancient Egypt.”

As “former” implies, Reilly resigned last month after upfront week.  It remains to be seen if Fox will return to the pilot season model in Reilly’s absence, but the network clearly was not happy with the results of this particular experiment.  Fox has cancelled Hieroglyph before it had a chance to reach its midseason premiere.  More after the jump.
