Comic-Con 2014: ‘Godzilla 2′ Officially Announced

Perhaps this time we will let "our hero" Godzilla get some actual rest before dispatching him to battle the world's other major MUTOs? Is that too much to ask? We've known for months that Legendary is eager to stay in the 'Godzilla' business after the success of this summer's awesome Gareth Edwards' feature film -- after all, they did announce a sequel to the film within days of it hitting the big screen -- but there have been plenty of lingering questions as to when that would happen and who (or what) we could expect to see in the next feature.

‘Doctor Who’ Season 8 Will Premiere on the Big Screen

Earlier this month, 'Doctor Who' showrunner Steven Moffat teased a "big introduction" and a "dynamic" hour of television for the series' eighth season premiere, and nothing says "big" and "dynamic" quite like a giant viewing on a massive screen.

Comic-Con 2014: ‘Game of Thrones’ Debuts a Funny and Foul-Mouthed Blooper Reel

HBO's smash hit 'Game of Thrones' might make for some very serious television, what with all that blood and death and battling and poisoning and dirty political machinations, but that doesn't mean that the series is without its own special humor, even if it not all of it makes its way into the final product. Turns out, when it comes time to film the small screen version of the beloved George R.R. Martin book series, even 'Game of Thrones' can't get away from tongue-twisting misread lines, a few unplanned pratfalls, and some unexpected getting down.

Comic-Con 2014: Freddie Prinze, Jr. On ‘Star Wars Rebels,’ Hulk Hogan and Thundarr the Barbarian

The first thing you notice about Freddie Prinze Jr. is his almost manic ability to make analogies between almost any subject and professional wrestling. (And considering that Prinze has worked on and off for WWE over the last few years, this wasn't necessarily surprising.) Prinze is at San Diego Comic-Con in support of 'Star Wars Rebels,' the new animated series that takes place between 'Revenge of the Sith' and the original 'Star Wars.' Prinze plays Kanan, a Jedi who survived 'Revenge of the Sith' who hides his Jedi powers so as to not draw attention to himself.
