Suicide Squad, Warcraft and Ennio Morricone: Top 10 Moments from SDCC 2015

If I had to pick one grotesquely obtuse metaphor to describe this year’s glamorous San Diego Comic Con, I’m pretty sure it would be moustachioed cowboy supernova that fuses hydrogen and glitter to make molten rainbows and vomits neurological organs.

Yeah, yeah I think that just about does it.

This was always going to be a wild card year, what with the absence of a Marvel presence save for half a dozen aimless cosplayers. But that wild card turned into a royal flush all too easily. We’ve picked out some of the best bits at this year’s SDCC, from teasers to trailers to screaming jokers. Here’s what we loved, in no particular order: Continue reading Suicide Squad, Warcraft and Ennio Morricone: Top 10 Moments from SDCC 2015

“Source Code 2” is officially on the books

The last kind of film you’d expect to get a sequel would be one with a Groundhog Day-template. But despite the moderate praise Duncan Jones’ Source Code received on its release, it was a freakishly unique and in-depth take on the go-back-in-time-over-and-over-again storyline. Now we’ve gotten word from Variety that a Source Code Sequel is in the works.

The first film was scripted by Ben Ripley of Species fame and had Jake Gyllenhaal repeatedly transported back into another man’s body to prevent a terrorist plot from blowing up a train full of people. The only problem was he only had eight minutes each time around to avert the disaster. Well, I mean that’s not the only problem, but it’s the most annoying bit. I don’t want to ruin the film in case you haven’t seen it, and I seriously recommend that you do. It’s a nice one to compare with Edge of Tomorrow now that you can buy both on Bluray.

This time around Gyllenhaal won’t be starring, and Anna Foerster will be taking over directing duties from Jones (he’s pretty busy with Warcraft). Foerster has had a strong collaboration history with Roland Emmerich on films including Independence Day as a Visual Effects Artist, and as Second Unit Director on Day After Tomorrow, Aeon Flux and 10,000 B.C. That’s about all we can say for sure though, since no cast or distributor have been announced. Foerster’s definitely a solid choice for sci-fi considering her experience in Visual Effects and Cinematography on some of the modern classics of the genre. The big question is, who’s gonna be Sam Beckett-ing their way around time to put right what once went wrong. No? Well it’s always a gamble making a Quantum Leap reference.

What did you think of Source Code? What would you like to see explained in the sequel?
