Ok the sound sucks and the video is quite shaky, but its freakin Iron Man 2 footage, so take what you can get! Bonus points for including Tool in the soundtrack!
A new season of Heroes is upon us. It’s tough to tell from this trailer how promising it will be as the last couple years have been a hit or miss. But it’s safe to say the die hard fans will be tuned in every Monday night come September.
At the panel for Warner Bros. release Book of Eli today, star Gary Oldman confirmed that a sequel to The Dark Knight is currently in the works and set to start filming next year. While he offered no specific information on the plot, he did mention that they’re aiming for release in two years.
“But you didn’t hear that from he,” Oldman assured the roaring crowd
Director Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard) and writer Chris Morgan (Wanted) appeared at Epic Games’ Gears of War panel to discussing the upcoming feature film based on the popular videogame franchise. It was clear by the end of the hour-long panel that production on the Gears of War feature film was in the earliest stages. In fact, there’s been no casting and there were no production stills or conceptual art to offer. Still, Wiseman and Morgan spoke about their philosophy regarding the movie and the director dispelled a recent Internet rumor regarding casting of the lead role.
Despite what some may want to suggest, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is not being considered for Gears of War. “A Doom connection would not be smart for us,” Wiseman said bluntly. He spent a few minutes explaining his philosophy on finding a good action star and in the process slagged The Rock. Wiseman stated that the way to find the right person to play the lead role of Marcus Fenix is not to “throw a bunch of strongmen into the ring and see who comes out victorious… I’m looking for an actor for the role and then [I’ll] put him into shape.” He added, “I’m always thinking who could play the best Marcus. You want to get hooked into the character [first] and then all the amazing spectacle.”
While Wiseman nixed the idea of The Rock in Gears of War, he did agree to one speculative bit of casting. When asked about who might play the part of Maria, the doomed wife of second-in-command Dominic Santiago, Wiseman had one actress at the top of his wishlist. “If I can convince [Kate Beckinsale]–and I think I have a shot– I’d love to see that.”
Here is the trailer shown by Alan Ball at Comic Con yesterday for the 2nd half of Season 2.. looks like things are really about to pick up in Bon Temps:
