And Five More Things We Learned At Comic-Con Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” has been shrouded in secrecy and confusing rhetoric almost since we first heard of the project. First it was an “Alien” prequel and then it wasn’t. Now it is again. But not really. Whatever. At least they are now discussing the project and promising some footage and/or trailers surfacing by fall. And they’re at least sure enough about it to start shedding at least a little light (which will most likely give us even more questions).

Did we not just ask what the deal was with "Dredd"? As we previously mentioned, this comic book adaptation has been practically off everybody's radar for months, despite the occasional news blurb or a fuzzy photo. On Monday we got to see Karl Urban decked out in the Judge Dredd uniform, which looked pretty cool, and now the film has been slapped with a release date.

10 Things Learned About Both Projects Including Plans For 'Fire & Ice' Adaptation & More 'Machete' FilmsWe're a month or so away from prolific, renegade Texan genre filmmaker Robert Rodriguez's latest picture, "Spy Kids 4D: All The Time In The World," but it's safe to say that only the parents, Rodriguez obsessives and hardcore Jessica Alba stalkers among us will be checking that one out: it's not for us, and that's just fine. But in Hall H of Comic-Con yesterday, Rodriguez announced a number of projects that should appeal much more to his usual target audience.

It has been a while since we've heard anything concrete about Terrence Malick's next film, the untitled romantic drama (also known as "The Burial") starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Charles Baker and in a small role, Jessica Chastain. Aside from the (curiously way early) first look photo that you see above, not much has been heard about the project other than the fact that it has been described (rather vaguely) as being even more experimental than "The Tree Of Life." Details on the plot have been scarce, and while some bits and pieces leaked last fall, who knows what shape it will take after Malick has finished with it in the editing room. But if this next bit of news sticks, it will mark the first time in the director's career he's had films arrive back-to-back in two years.

We're still on something of a knife-edge about "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes," two weeks away from the film's release: talented director Rupert Wyatt and performance capture star Andy Serkis have talked a good talk so far, and elements of it have been intriguing, but the trailers for the most part have been a mixed bag. Unsurprisingly, Fox were out in force with the film on Day 1 of Comic-Con yesterday, with both Wyatt and Serkis on hand to talk up the film, and debuting a new clip, focusing on the third-act ape revolution that looks to hold most of the big action. That clip has now made its way online.

Ron Perlman Hints That He'll Be In 'Pacific Rim'Of the many, many, many projects Guillermo Del Toro has in various states of development, the one fans tend to ask about the most is "Hellboy 3." So no surprise that at the FilmDistrict panel this afternoon at Comic-Con, where Del Toro was talking up "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark," the subject once again came up and while it doesn't look like it's on the immediate horizon -- Del Toro has "Pacific Rim" to work on -- it does sound like an idea gnawing at the back of their minds.
