Nic Cage's epic rapture reboot hits theaters this October. Here's what you need to know to prepare.
 

John C. Reilly, who has long been guaranteed to be the highlight of any movie he's in, took to Letterman last night to debut some explosive new Guardians of the Galaxy footage. Marvel's new, very odd offering is currently sailing on a wave of strong early hype and almost universally positive reviews, and this clip gives us a sneak peek at just what makes it so special.

It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien. His Middle Earth fandom is so great that he was even able to score a cameo in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug as “ the Laketown spy.” At Comic-Con this weekend, Colbert donned his authentic movie apparel and offered up some extremely kind works for the folks behind the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit adaptations while introducing the panel for the latest installment, at one point, even quoting C.S. Lewis:

The movies broke upon the world, and to steal a line from C.S. Lewis, “Here were beauties that pierced like swords and burned like cold iron.” Here were movies that would break your heart, good beyond hope. And rather than take away our treasure, Peter and Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens and Richard Taylor and Grant Major and Dan Hennah and the cast and the crew and WETA Digital and the land and the people of New Zealand itself added to our stories, complemented our imagination.

One of the unbreakable rules of the universe is that if mainstream culture finds a successful product, Christian culture will find a way to counterprogram it.

The movie is called Old Fashioned (which might be a little on the nose), it's from the same people who gave us God's Not Dead and it's releasing the same day as Fifty Shades. According to writer/director/lead actor Rik Swartzwelder, Old Fashioned is ...

A story that, without apology, explores the possibility of a higher standard in relationships; yet, is also fully aware of just how fragile we all are and doesn’t seek to heap guilt upon those of us that have made mistakes.

All we really know is that Swartzwelder will play a "frat boy" and Elizabeth Ann Roberts will play a "free spirited woman." Hijinks presumably ensue. And in case, you're wondering, the movie's tagline is "Chivalry makes a comeback." So, it's a knockdown, drag out, two-movies-enter-one-movie-leaves rumble in the Valentine's Day theatrical jungle ... Discuss

 

All told, Comic-Con wasn't quite the gangbusters geek out it usually is, since most of the convention's biggest projects (like Batman V Superman: Why Should Marvel Have All the Fun and Star Wars VII: Let's Try This Again) are still in their early stages. But Marvel did bring the thunder with some early footage of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron which we don't have yet, and a poster, which we do. There's a look at all our old Avengers pals, along with new recruits Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), the Vision (Paul Bettany) and about a thousand versions of the robot bad guy: Ultron.
