Comic-Con 2014 Panel Vids For The Walking Dead, Interstellar, And More

fb share tweet share

Comic-Con-LogoAnother massive installment of San Diego’s Comic-Con International has come and gone, leaving the fans to disperse to the four corners of the Earth, laden down with bags of swag. Of course, many people didn’t get to go this year, and there are even more who’ve never been to Comic-Con at all. Thankfully, this is the internet age, so even if you weren’t amid the throngs last week, you can still experience some of the awesomeness via the slew of panel videos that have popped up online.

These don’t give you the visceral thrill of being in the middle of 6,000 cheering geeks in Hall H, and you’re not going to get to see the really cool stuff like that Avengers 2 footage, but many of the panel discussions and Q&A segments are available online to watch in full. Check out the ones we found below, and if you want to recreate the experience more fully, feel free to watch them while crowded into a tool shed with 30 or 40 strangers. But you have to wait in line for 12 hours first.

Damon Lindelof Will Script A Lost-Themed Episode Of Phineas And Ferb

fb share tweet share

phineas ferbIf you’ve been watching HBO’s hyper-depressing series The Leftovers, you might be under the impression that writer/producer Damon Lindelof has somehow completely lost track of what happiness is, and that maybe his Internet anti-fanbase had bored a hole inside his brain. Of course, that isn’t actually the case, and Lindelof is heading to one of the brightest and silliest places on TV for an upcoming project, as he’ll be writing a special episode of Disney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb. The really crazy part? It’ll be a tribute to Lost.

No air date has been set for the episode, but it will air this fall. Titled “Lost in Danville,” this story centers on the titular stepbrothers as they stumble upon a locked capsule that suddenly and inexplicably appears in their backyard. I’m sure they’ll just call in some authority figure and get things taken care of in a responsible manner. That’s the kind of plotline that has made the animated series a hit with both children and adults, right?

Godzilla 2 Will Bring Back Mothra And More After Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Spinoff

fb share tweet share

godzillaLike a moth to a flame shooting out of a giant radioactive creature’s mouth, fan-favorite feature creature Mothra will grace the silver screen once again. And that’s not the half of it. In one of the more exciting announcements to come out of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Legendary Pictures head Thomas Tull declared Godzilla 2 will definitely feature Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah. Not. Just. One of them. All three of them. I think I need some air.

Legendary is a company that likes big things, so it’s no surprise that they took to their panel to deliver big news. Though Godzilla director Gareth Edwards wasn’t on hand to talk to fans in person, he was seen on a video officially saying Godzilla 2 is an imminent part of his career, and that he’ll get back to creating disasters once he’s finished with his upcoming Star Wars spinoff that he signed on for a few months ago.

Zoe Saldana As Ripley And Katee Sackhoff As Han Solo In Comic-Con Cosplay Shots

fb share tweet share

aliensYesterday, we got to see some truly awesome fan-play as The Hollywood Reporter kicked off one of the sweetest photo projects imaginable, reimagining some of sci-fi’s greatest characters with some of sci-fi’s most popular actors. Firefly‘s Nathan Fillion took on the role of Captain Kirk and Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick checked the time as Marty McFly. And now you can see Avatar‘s Zoe Saldana playing this genre’s most ass-kicking hero, Ellen Ripley, from James Cameron’s Aliens, among others.

Saldana gives a great interview with THR, talking about all three of her simultaneous sci-fi franchises. (She’s also in Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Trek, of course.) As such, it’s no surprise that she should earn the spot of one of cinema’s most iconic female characters, in the movie where she turns from heroine to warrior.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes And X-Men Get Comic-Con Exclusive Blu-Ray Sets

fb share tweet share

ApesYou know what your Blu-ray shelf is lacking? A scowling ape’s head. I feel pretty confident in declaring that, but if I’m wrong, then I congratulate you for being ahead of the scowling-ape-head curve. As for the rest of us, we’ll be able to remedy our scowling-ape-head deficit with the rather snazzy Caesar’s Warrior Collection Blu-ray set, which packs all sorts of goodies into a replica of Caesar’s intimidating mug. It’s available for pre-order this week both at Comic-Con and online, so now you folks in the midst of the San Diego chaos have a good reason to swing by the Fox Booth (#4229).

The Caesar’s Warrior Collection is a four-disc set that will include Blu-ray 3-D, Blu-ray, and Digital HD versions of both Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, as well as “hours of special features.” The Warrior Collection also includes four collectible character cards and a 32-page “Planet of the Apes: Building an Icon” booklet that looks at WETA’s creation of the Caesar replica. The set lists for $129, but you can pre-order it now at Fox’s Comic-Con booth or via FoxConnect for only $99. There’s no official release date yet, but the set will apparently be arriving in time for the holiday season.

Fox Unveils Comic-Con Blu-Rays For Alien, RoboCop, Young Frankenstein, And The Fly

ComicCon2014_Alien_BDOne of the best parts of Comic-Con is all the crazy exclusives that populate the dealer’s room floor, from action figures to posters to shirts and pretty much everything in between. Well, for any Blu-ray aficionados currently hunkering down in San Diego, you might want to swing by the 20th Century Fox booth, as they’ve announced a collection of exclusive Comic-Con Blu-ray editions of four movie classics any GFR reader should own: Alien, the original RoboCop, Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein, and the 1958 version of The Fly. The matching artwork should look pretty damn striking all in a row, so you might want to shelve these cover out.

Of course, these are all movies that have been released many, many times over the years, and if you’re a true Alien die-hard, chances are you already own the stellar Alien Anthology. But in addition to the snazzy cover art, each of these three Blu-ray sets is from a limited run of 500, and each comes with a matching numbered lithograph. Here’s what you’ll get on the Alien disc as far as bonus features:
