'MAD MAX FURY ROAD' TRAILER IS HERE! COREY STOLL IS YELLOWJACKET, EVANGELINE LILLY IS HOPE VAN DYNE IN 'ANT-MAN' WITH PAUL RUDD! NEW 'THE MAZE RUNNER' POSTER! SAM RAIMI ADAPTING 'THE LAST OF US' VIDEO GAME

ANT-MAN NEW CAST MEMBERS
EVANGELINE LILLY AND COREY STOLL JOIN PAUL RUDD
We're going sf today, people, starting with fresh news from San Francisco's ComicCon: after yesterday's news that Patrick Wilson has left ANT-MAN, two new stars have joined the superhero film. The film will follow biochemist Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) who uses his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles, to create a size-altering formula. Though his first self-test goes awry, he develops an instrument that helps him communicate with and control insects. Paul Rudd is Scott Lang or ANT-MAN, and Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll are new cast members: Evangeline will play Hank Pym's estranged daughter Hope Van Dyne who is also Lang's love interest (she becomes villainous Red Queen in the comics), while Corey Stoll will be the villain Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket who has taken over Pym's company! The movie is out next summer! 

'THE LAST OF US' GETS
BIG SCREEN ADAPTATION
Over at ComicCom comes the news from Sam Raimi who will adapt video game THE LAST OF US into a movie. GAME OF THRONE's Maisie Williams could take one of the lead roles in the movie which follows Joel, a ruthless survivor with few moral lines left to cross, who lives in one of the last remaining Quarantine Zones. These walled-off, oppressive cities are run by what’s left of the military. Despite the strict martial law, Joel operates in the black market of the city, smuggling contraband for the right price.

THE MAZE RUNNER
BRAND NEW POSTER IS HERE!
To finish in sf style here's the brand new poster for THE MAZE RUNNER fantasy action movie which will run into cinemas September 19th! The story follows Thomas who wakes up in an elevator, remembering nothing but his own name. He emerges into a world of about 60 teen boys who have learned to survive in a completely enclosed environment, subsisting on their own agriculture and supplies. A new boy arrives every 30 days. The original group has been in "The Glade" for two years, trying to find a way to escape through the Maze that surrounds their living space. They have begun to give up hope. Then a comatose girl arrives with a strange note, and their world begins to change. Will Poulter, Chris Sheffield, Kaya Scodelario and Dylan O'Brien star.


MAD MAX FURY ROAD
 FIRST TRAILER IS HERE!
You can also check out the first look, also from ComicCon, at MAD MAX FURY ROAD which stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult! The movie will follow Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. Speaking of ComicCon trailers, our tomorrow's post will be up a bit later than usual in order to put HOBBIT teaser in it which will be around 9PM Central European Time, 12PM PT, 3PM ET.

  1. Mad Max movies always have such a savage look to them.

  2. Mad Max, hmmm. Hope there's a decent story to go along with all that CGI and pyrotechnics.

    1. since it took like five years to make the film, at least, I hope that was enough time for them to come up with a good story.... Not that the old ones had complex stories

  3. ComicCon certainly has become an important part of Hollywood. It used to be just for a particular subculture, but these movies have exploded the fandom.

    I'm lousy at video games, so I've never heard of The Last of Us. And it's not one The Spawn has played either.

    1. especially this year, dear. So many unexpected teasers and info this year. But I still don't know why Warner Bros. won't show us HOBBIT and SUPERMAN teasers that were shown at the Con this weekend. I had a HOBBIT post all ready this weekend waiting for the teaser, but they didn't release it for the wider public

  5. The Maze Runner looks like a pretty good movie. Maybe I'll try to read the book before I see it.

    Plus, it looks like they've captured the essence of what Mad Max should be. Hopefully.

  10. Is Max a reboot, or a continuation?
    I only ask because the original Max had a cool dog.

  11. The Maze Runner books were kind of all over the place. When you think they were going in one direction, it completely turned around or the thought process or a particular part of the story was dead ended. I hope they do a better job piecing the movie together.

    1. fingers crossed. I do not read YA so I wouldn't know.. methinks all YA is pure crap :)

    2. I never read YA as a kid, but I have read a few lately that I like. James Patterson has a few good YA books that I have enjoyed lately.

    3. I could read only inspiring and heartwarming ones, never the ones in which kids are put in deadly situations

  14. I loved Evangeline Lilly on Lost. She was the best part of the show, I thought! Good to see she's still doing movies. She'd mentioned at one time she wanted to retire after Lost.
