INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
It’s Comic-Con International week, in case you can’t tell by the social-media frenzy of anxious tweets and Facebook updates from your favorite actors, filmmakers and comics creators. But where there’s convention stress, there’s convention awesomeness, in the form of a bunch of exclusive posters for films appearing in San Diego.
Up first is a new poster for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, designed by artist Tommy Lee Edwards. Edwards premiered the image on Twitter.
Next comes a new look at Chloe Grace Moretz playing the iconic title role in Carrie, Screen Gems’ new adaptation of the Stephen King classic. It’s prom queen Carrie covered in pig’s blood. What more do you need to know? Thanks to Yahoo for the disturbing image.
Another geek-friendly actress, Lena Headey, is at the heart of her own Comic-Con poster. She demands vengeance as Queen Gorgo in Warner Bros’ new 300: Rise of an Empire poster. Looks like the erstwhile Cersei Lannister will have a major role to play in the 300 follow-up, even if her on-screen husband Leonidas is out of the picture.
Finally, the monster of them all — quite literally — is the Comic-Con poster for Godzilla. It features the classic movie monster made entirely out of street and city carnage. Most likely not the Godzilla we’ll see when the movie rolls around, but it makes for one hell of a poster.
