The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies
So, the final 'Hobbit' movie is coming. After six movies, director Peter Jackson will finally be done with his ‘Lord Of The Rings’ saga (or one assumes, anyhow). And so in this final movie, it’s kill the dragon Smaug and come home as heroes with fortunes in tow, right? Maybe not quite so fast. "People tend to forget what happens at the end of ‘The Hobbit,' " screenwriter/producer Philippa Boyens told USA Today. "They think of this little children's book. The rest of the story needs to be told, and it's pretty intense stuff."

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Some filmmakers you can count on being at Comic-Con every year no matter what, and Robert Rodriguez is one of them. In fact, check out this interesting fact. Warner Bros. and D.C. used two hours of Hall H Comic-Con time to promote three films and probably a handful of other projects. In contrast, Dimension Films is using an entire hour for one film and one film only, “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” (sorry I refuse to put Frank Miller’s name in the title as that’s just needlessly long, at least Lee Daniels legally had to). If there’s a studio or a filmmaker who loves and lives and dies by his Comic-Con crowd, Rodriguez is certainly close to the top and today, the trailer unspooled in San Diego has landed online.

Even before a frame has been shot, Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight" has had quite the life. Announced last year as his next project, it wasn't long after when an early draft of the script leaked, and he furiously decided to can the movie. But almost just as swiftly, he changed his mind and continued to develop the script, and then earlier this spring, he staged a starry live reading of what he had on the page so far (read our review of the event). And basically, the chatter was that Tarantino was going to ultimately direct "The Hateful Eight," and soon, with Kurt Russell (who participated in the live read) recently suggesting that cameras would roll in early 2015. And while Tarantino didn't give an exact date, he's now confirmed this film is next on his slate.

Mad Max: Fury Road
At least viewed from afar, since most of The Playlist team didn't go down for the event, it would seem that "Mad Max: Fury Road" walked away from this year's Comic-Con with the best buzz of any film that was presented. The trailer certainly got folks talking and amped up the excitement for what look likes a white knuckle action flick that is going re-invigorate the franchise that has been largely dormant for decades. Clearly, hitting San Diego a year out from release with a major presentation about the movie, Warner Bros. has big hopes for this movie to spawn even more, and it looks like the foundation has not only be laid, they are ready to go should 'Fury Road' prove to be a hit.

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
We’ve seen some intriguing teaser trailers for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1” so far. One of the features a brainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) in piece of “unified” propaganda from President Snow (Donald Sutherland) that gets jacked by members of the rebellion, namely Beetee (Jeffrey Wright). This is the type of insurgency that Snow will be looking to quell with swift vengeance and does really set the stage for “MockingJay, Part 1.” The rebellion is making plans.

Ant-Man Poster Header
The elephant in the room was not largely addressed during Marvel’s Comic-Con “Ant-Man” panel. Onstage, there was little talk of the older iteration of “Ant-Man” that was going to be directed by a filmmaker you might have heard of named Edgar Wright (though there was a guy loyally standing outside of the convention center all day with a sign that said “Edgar Wright was right”). If the “Ant-Man” snafu in May was a PR disaster for the studio, all was forgotten by the Comic-Com faithful once the celebrity glad-handing began and teaser footage unspooled (ahh, those fickle fans, who initially insisted they’d no longer pay to see this film…)

Guardians Of The Galaxy
Marvel’s Comic-Con panel in San Diego Saturday night wasn’t very substantive—a lot of sizzle, not much steak. The audience there went ape over most of the teaser footage shown. Anyone desperate for news about Marvel mystery release dates, “Doctor Strange” or announcements of any Marvel superheroes newly headed for the big screen walked away empty handed. Chris Pratt and director James Gunn did come out at the very end of the panel to announce “Guardians Of The Galaxy 2.” The movie has been slated for a July 28, 2017 release.
