Elysium Panel Comic-Con 2012: Neil Blomkamp Will Change Your Life

I want to tell you how amazing Neil Blomkamp’s Elysium will be. I sat in on the panel for the District 9 director’s next project at Comic-Con 2012, and I can’t wipe the fanboy off myself enough to give an accurate appraisal of its awesomosity, but trust me: This movie might change your freakin’ life, and I only saw like nine minutes of it.

While Jodie Foster and Matt Damon (both Comic-Con virgins) were onhand at the show, as was District 9’s Sharlto Copely, the star power really belonged to the movie, not the celebrities. As soon as it started rolling, everything else was forgotten.

Set in a dystopian future, Elysium’s world is all about a sharp line between the haves and the have-nots. The one-percent live in a perfect satellite that orbits earth. There’s no sickness on Elysium. No pain. But the rest of us (that’s you and me) live down here on the planet where everything just sucks, all the time.

Sam Raimi, Michelle Williams & Milas Kunis Return To Oz At The Oz: The Great & Powerful Comic-Con 2012 Panel

There's no place like home, especially when that home includes Oz: The Great & Powerful director Sam Raimi! This time, he's staying away from his signiature horror style and going a little more classic. He sat down with Chris Hardwick at Comic-Con 2012 to discuss his upcoming movie, Oz: The Great & Powerful, which is based on the original books by L. Frank Baum.

The film, starring James Franco as Oscar Riggs, reveals the man's origins and how he became the great wizard we known now. Raimi went on to describe how "it's a story about a selfish man and throughout the course of the journey, by the time he gets to Oz, it's like a land of second chances. He's influenced by great friends like the Good Witch Glinda, and how he becomes more of a selfless man."

Resident Evil: Damnation Panel Comic-Con 2012: Trained Lickers??

Capcom’s Resident Evil: Damnation is a feature-length DVD and Blu-ray CGI sequel to Resident Evil: Degeneration. Starring the great Leon Kennedy, Damnation puts its protagonist behind-enemy lines, with no support from the U.S., facing off with a mysterious enemy and many mutated baddies. It’s prime Resident Evil, and what better place to show it off than Comic-Con 2012?

In a packed ballroom at the con, director Makoto Kamiya answered fans questions, showed off Damnation’s trailer, and gave us a special Comic-Con peek at the beginning of the movie.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 3DS Game Set For Summer 2012

We finally get our greedy little hands on the 3DS game that will have you chasing after that gold stuff, New Super Mario Bros. 2. As a direct sequel, expect to find much of the same great platforming and style that made the first one so popular. But of course, the team over at Nintendo added a couple of new twists to the formula to keep you on your toes.

One of the new aspects that we got to try out was the Coin Rush mode:

“You can access Coin Rush levels after you’ve completed them on regular difficulty, and these levels just throws countless coins from every conceivable place. Coins pour down pipes. They follow jumping turtles. You can use gold flowers to turn blocks into coins. You can get a mask that makes Mario leave a trail of gold coins behind him. Coin Rush gives you one life to play three levels, and collect as many coins as possible.”

To find out more about our time with the plumber, check out the rest of our Hands-On Preview of New Super Mario Bros. 2.

Fourth Season News From The Community Comic-Con 2012 Panel

The Community panel at Comic-Con 2012 was like a family reunion. The fans of NBC's comedy series are so dedicated, many of them waited outside all night for a chance to see the stars of this hit series. Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, Danny Pudy, and Yvette Nichole Brown did not disappoint.

The cast and fans reminisced over old times, including memories of favorite episodes; the Law and Order episode, the Blanket Fort episode, and more.

And like any family gathering, it was not without its drama. If you follow the show, you know that Dan Harmon, the creator of Community, is no longer on the show, so the new co-showrunner David Guarascio was on hand to reassure the audience.

"We are fans of the show first," said Guarascio. "We understand the show deeply and love it, and want it to be the wonderful thing that it is."

"We're not going to screw it up," he added.

Tim Burton

If you love all things related to Tim Burton, you're in for a treat with Frankenweenie.

Beyond: Two Souls Comic-Con 2012 Panel

Beyond: Two Souls cemented its role as one of 2013's most highly anticipated game at Comic-Con this year, with creator David Cage joining Ellen Page and Kadeem Hardison on stage for a special discussion. Moderated by IGN's Greg Miller, the trio talked about the inspiration behind the game, how it all came together and more--all without trying to give away any spoilers of the story. Boo.

The most interesting aspect learned from the panel was how Cage began writing the story of Beyond: Two Souls. Answering a fan's question, he revealed how he was led to creating a new game after a sudden death of a close family member: "It's really a shocking experience. It was so sudden, unfair and cruel and incredible, and I've never been a religious guy, (don't really believe in god) but I needed to find some meaning to this experience."

Gears of War: Judgment Release Date Announced -- Official Comic-Con 2012 News

Epic Games has announced the Gears of War: Judgment release date: March 19, 2013.

Gears of War: Judgment will also support dedicated servers, Epic revealed during its Comic-Con 2012 panel today.

Attendees at the show can also get their hands on the newly revealed OverRun map Island. The map is set outside of Halvo Bay on an island chain crisscrossed with bridges and tunnels, which should, I’m assuming, provide plenty of picturesque and bottlenecky action. We’ll be checking out Islands for ourselves shortly, so stay tuned for more details.

The news comes just a day after Epic's Rod Fergusson confirmed the release window of March on X-Play during Comic-Con 2012.

Arnold Is Back, Sly's Paintings & Bromances At The Expendables 2 Comic-Con 2012 Panel

If you thought the action movie genre was dead, then you clearly weren't at The Expendables 2 panel at Comic-Con 2012. Amidst cheers from a standing audience, Geoff Boucher from the LA Times brought out writer and star Sylvester Stallone with cast members Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren and the Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Together, the panel discussed how the first Expendables film was a tribute to the past era of action movie stars and now, Stallone is "just trying to keep it going and bring back some true badness." So what sets the sequel apart from the first movie? Stallone promises us that The Expendables 2 will be even better, especially now that each of their characters and personalities have been established.

Also, this movie would hopefully reignite interest in the old-school action movie genre. Today's stars have what Stallone calls "velcro muscles," where they "don't have to spend their lives pumping iron"--which is totally okay, he reminded us. He was jealous of today's action stars who can do even more with CG help: "Each generation has to create their own heroes. Each generation will come and redefine what they like and who they adore."
