If You Want Creatures In Your “Training Day,” “Bright” Is For You

Netflix has come to San Diego Comic-Con and brought with them some serious star power! At the “Bright” panel, Terry Crews moderated with stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, and Édgar Ramírez, and director David Ayer.

Regarding the new original Netflix film, even though this has more of a fantasy element Ayer said “it’s about a really fucked-up LA.” The trailer and clips that were shown definitely indicate some clear associations to the current social issues happening right now. Monster racism and social injustice are a big part of the theme here. Smith also noted that this film has the “rated R grime of training day smashed with Lord of the Rings.” The clips shown and panel discussion resonated loud and clear with the SDCC Hall H crowd and this is definitely a film many will be looking forward to viewing. read more

Netflix Makes First SDCC Hall H Appearance With “Death Note”

Netflix has come to Comic-Con and brought with them many great things, one of which is a new original movie, “Death Note.” “Death Note” is based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. Panelists included director Adam Wingard, producers Masi Oka and Roy Lee, as well as stars Nat Wolff, Margaret Qualley, and LaKeith Stanfield.

The question was asked “how scary is Death Note?” Director Adam Wingard notes that “it has a horror tinge to it” but is not full-on horror. With his previous work on films like “You’re Next” people tend to think of him very specifically for horror. However, he let the fans know that there are a lot of different elements to this film besides horror. read more

Official Title and Website Released for ‘American Horror Story’ Season 7

Great news… everyone can finally stop referring to the next season of American Horror Story as “the election-themed season!” The official title for Season Seven was revealed late last night at an event for San Diego Comic Con. The season shall now be known as: American Horror Story: Cult.

Given showrunner Ryan Murphy’s extremely secretive nature surrounding the roll-out of last season, the fact that even just the title was announced at this point in time may be surprising to some fans. But the grand reveal didn’t stop there… FX has also dropped an official website with more content and clues about the upcoming season! read more

SDCC 2017: The Exorcist Panel

Returning cast Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels, and Kurt Egyiawan as well as executive producer Jeremy Slater were on hand for a victory lap to celebrate the renewal of “The Exorcist.” John Cho and Brianna Hildebrand, as well as new executive producer Sean Crouch, all new to Season 2 and not previously announced for the panel, were also on hand to talk a bit about the show.

An immediate question asked was “is it scarier?” and unfortunately this was not really answered very specifically, Daniels did go on to let the fans know that the show had now “exploded open in rural American” and was no longer stuck in the city setting allowing more freedom for the story. We learned also that an island off the coast of Seattle is the setting for the next tale. Intriguingly, Crouch noted that there will be a lot of nature-based horror heavily inspired by Japanese horror movies. read more

‘The Woods’ Revealed to be ‘Blair Witch’ at SDCC 2016

Jaws dropped during ‘The Woods’ panel at SDCC 2016 yesterday when it was revealed that the movie was actually a sequel to 1999’s ‘Blair Witch Project’. The buzz about ‘The Woods’ on the convention floor was incredible and fans quickly lined up to get into the panel to get their first look.

The Blair Witch Project is one of those movies that divides horror fans. While some love it, others despise it, mainly due to the fact that it ushered in a wave of “found-footage” films which are considered by some fans as a cheap gimmick to appeal to younger audiences who are used to reality television and YouTube videos. read more
