Everyone scrambled to get up this cool logo from Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, which was printed on t-shirts given away at SDCC. I tried to wait, because I know how anal the concept artist, Alex Pardee, is about his finished product — I mean, the guy sleeps four hours a day. Well he didn’t let me down. Today, he unveiled an official version of the image seen on the tee. Check it out below.

Pardee has been working on an animated feature for two years now called Chadam, which is in development at Warner Brothers where Snyder released Watchmen so I’m sure that’s how their partnership started. Described as Alice In Wonderland with machine guns, the story follows a young girl institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility. Sucker Punch stars Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, and Jamie Chung.

Snyder is currently working on the animated feature, Guardians Of Ga’Hoole to be released in 2010.

We’re clearly rolling into the start of a large marketing push. Here’s a glimpse at Zoe Saldana’s character in the upcoming James Cameron epic, Avatar. This will most likely be another poster to follow the one of Sam Worthington’s avatar. Hopefully, this is the start of a series as I’d love to see Sigourney Weaver’s avatar next, or perhaps a poster for each creature on Pandora or the locations themselves. GODDAMNIT I NEED TO SEE THIS NOW!

Stills: ‘Iron Man 2′ From SDCC

Here’s a few pretty crap quality pictures from the Iron Man 2 footage that was recently shown at SDCC. None of Black Widow or Justin Hammer. Mostly just Whiplash, Tony Stark and the back of Nick Fury’s head, and a hazy shot of War Machine.

Response to the footage has been extremely positive maintaining that the humor and characters have been kept intact. Jon Favreau’s becoming a really great director so I’m really excited to see him up the ante this time with more action.

Warren Ellis Announces New ‘Excalibur’ Project

Posted by Brian on 07/27/2009

Probably the busiest comic book writer ever, Warren Ellis was at Comic-Con this past weekend. His tweets in between his signings (“Stop watching me tweet!”, “Slashfilm are telling people I’m mean.”) were hilarious. Apparently in all the mega-movie chaos this past weekend (and because most of his stuff was for the Marvel Anime deal), Ellis didn’t bother to mention that he’s working on an “untitled Arthurian movie.”

That Arthurian movie just happens to be a new Excalibur project. Is it a remake of the original film or something entirely new? Details are skim at the moment as Ellis is only in the treatment phase right now. The film is being produced by Gianni Nunnari who previously optioned Ellis’ graphic novel Ocean, alongside Oliver Kramer and Craig Flores of Hollywood Gang Productions. I’d actually like to see the story of a young Arthur becoming King and building Camelot.
