Comic-Con Photos For Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Gravity, Ender’s Game, And Newly Retitled All You Need Is Kill
Comic-Con is right around the corner, and all the featured releases are pouring out promotional material a little at a time, building up to whatever brand-new footage or mini-event the studios are unleashing in San Diego. Luckily, Entertainment Weekly has rounded up the most exciting panels of the Con and provided a new image for most of them. Nothing on Godzilla but a group of classic images, but sci-fi still stands strong with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Ender’s Game, Gravity, and All You Need Is… a name change?
More intriguing than EW’s still of Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt crouching down in their mecha-weapon-gear-suits from Doug Liman’s adaptation All You Need Is Kill is that the title is completely different now. Warner Bros. has generically retitled the film Edge of Tomorrow and released the poster seen above. In (ugh) Edge of Tomorrow, Cruise will play a soldier in a futuristic battle who becomes caught in a time loop, experiencing a cycle of death and resurrection, all while gaining experience as a soldier. It’s unknown who will show up for the panel as of now, but check out the filthy-faced EW image below.
Catching Fire will turn Comic-Con into a gala affair with their first panel. Beyond releasing a huge, brand-new trailer, most of the main cast, including Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, as well as director Francis Lawrence, will all be there, according to Yahoo! Movies (who revealed the second still seen below). But there’s no mention of Stanley Tucci, who appears in the EW pic below as the flamboyant Hunger Games host Caesar Flickerman. From Katniss’ fancy dress, we go to Effie Trinket’s old sofa of a dress, the second image shows Katniss and Peeta in everyday attire, giving the District 11 salute. Given the fact that everyone looks miserable, this is probably once it becomes clear they’re going back to battle.
It’s nice to talk about Ender’s Game without feeling the need to mention any controversy. EW’s still features Ender (Asa Butterfield) and Petra (Hailee Steinfeld) looking as if they’re getting ready to face something challenging and awe-inspiring. I don’t think there’s any way I could wear one of those suits or helmets and still be able to smile at all. Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, and director Gavin Hood will all be on Ender‘s Comic-Con panel, and Summit is setting up an immersive outdoor exhibit featuring many different settings from the film, so fans can take pictures in them. Speaking of a picture…
Finally we come to the film that I have the blindest expectations for, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, the movie least likely to make a big splash at Comic-Con, given its more subtle nature. George Clooney and Sandra Bullock getting stranded in outer space likely won’t inspire rabid fervor, but everyone has been waiting seven years for Cuarón to follow up his excellent 2006 film Children of Men. The still seen below features a nice moment between Bullock and Clooney, locking eyes as they work on the outside of their craft as the Earth spins below. I don’t have a fear of heights, but this movie may cause me to rethink a few things.
