Comic-Con 2014

posted by Nell Minow

Copyright 2014 Nell MinowIt’s here!  San Diego Comic-Con begins Wednesday night in San Diego and I’ll be there.  This is my favorite event of the year, a chance to find out what everyone will be watching, listening to, playing, and otherwise enjoying over the next few years.  As I always say, this is the Iowa caucuses of popular culture.

Scheduled to appear are a dazzling array of stars on and off screen including everyone from Betty White and Quentin Tarantino to Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich (voices from “Penguins of Madagascar”) and Channing Tatum, Ron Perlman, Christina Applegate, plus writer/director Jorge Gutierrez and producer Guillermo del Toro from “Book of Life.”  Voice talent from “The Boxtrolls” film I’ve been writing about will be there, too, including Sir Ben Kingsley and Elle Fanning.  The cast, producers, and/or writers for shows like “The Big Bang Theory,” “Venture Brothers,” “The Blacklist,” “Bates Motel,” and many more will be there, along with some glimpses of new series premiering this fall.  And of course there will be crazy costumes and, as always, lots of surprises.  Stay tuned!

Another "Star is Born" Movie? Possibly, with Bradley Cooper as Director and Beyonce to Star!
A movie that's already been done three times (at least) may just get yet another remake if the rumors are true that Bradley Cooper will direct and Beyoncé will appear in "A Star is Born."  The original 1937 version, said to be inspired by (among others) the marriage of aging vaudeville star Al Jol
