Comic-Con 2010 Pick Up

2011 already seemed old at this weekend’s Comic-Con. Just a couple years ago, it was considered pretty groundbreaking when a movie cast/team would show up at Comic-Con to promote a movie that wasn’t premiering for another year. When the Iron Man cast did it in 2007 to tout the 2008 release, trailer in hand, people thought […]

Summer 2010 movies are soooooo last week

The rumors had been swirling, but now it’s official — Matthew Vaughn will direct X-Men: First Class. That’s not the surprising part since it’s already been discussed around these parts.
