It looks like the first official teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. has been released by James Gunn at Comic-Con Brazil. In the trailer we get to see the first look at Baby Groot in action, as well as some hilariously awkward situations between Star-Lord, Drax, and Gamora.

Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, and Kurt Russell.

Seems like it is going to be a pretty busy day at the Sony PlayStation Experience. With already a few major titles announced, famed developer Naughty Dog decided to close out the show with the huge announcement that the long awaited sequel to the multi award-winning The Last of Us would be coming. The debut trailer was premiered during today’s press conference with the video opening with a shot of a forest and zooming out to what appeared to be a deserted town. A roar came over the crowd  when they immediately recognized the Fireflies symbol on a stop sign.

We see a much more grown up version of Ellie singing a folk song around a bunch of corpses strung throughout the house she sits in. A shadowy figure walks over the room where Ellie sits. It’s Joel. Joel asks her if she really wants to go through with this and Ellie proclaims that she plans to kill them all.

Judging from the trailer we can only assume that she means the Fireflies. Interesting enough, we don’t ever get to see Joel’s face, but it’s hard not to recognize Troy Baker’s distinct voice.

What did you think of the trailer? Sound off in the comments section below!

No release date has been set and as currently in early development.

Hello, StarTrek.com readers. Robert Picardo here. Welcome to my latest Planetary Post. Back in 1990, the Voyager spacecraft -- and I mean the REAL Voyager spacecraft -- took a photo of our planet from about 6,000,000,000 km away. This distant image of Earth inspired Carl Sagan, the Planetary Society's co-founder, to write some very moving and inspirational words about our home in his book, The Pale Blue Dot. It is my particular honor to read some of those words in the new Planetary Post. I hope Sagan's words will mean as much to you as they do to me...

The smile on Dusty Abell's face was as bright as his artwork on the wall behind him when StarTrek.com caught up with him at the Star Trek. 50 Artists. 50 Years. exhibition at Michael J. Wolf Fine Arts gallery in San Diego during this past summer's Comic-Con festivities. Abell is a character designer in the animation industry, and he was previously employed as a comic book penciler and cover artist. His 50 Artists. 50 Years contribution is "Star Trek: The Original Series," a 27"x40" digital illustration that features at least one character, creature, ship or location from all 79 episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series. He collaborated on his Trek piece with co-colorist Lovern Kindzierski, a comic book artist. Here's what Abell had to say during our brief conversation:

How exciting is it for you to be a part of the 50th exhibition?

It's a blast. Star Trek is something I grew up with as a kid. I have a great passion for it, and so it's just an honor to be included. There are so many other great pieces of art here and it's something I'll always look back on with a lot of fond memories, being a part of this with the 50th anniversary, and this exhibition and all these artists. It's a big deal.

Tell us about your piece. What was the inspiration? What did you want to capture?

What I wanted to capture was... just my love for the diversity of the cast, the characters, the situations, the drama, the comedy, the great production design, the ships, the characters, the costumes. Everything about The Original Series shaped what I became as an artist. So, that was kind of the start.

The depictions are realistic-looking and comic-book-style at the same time...

I guess that's kind of my thing, because people respond to the fact that the likenesses are pretty accurate, I suppose, even though it's done in more of an animation style. That's just the way I draw. I guess Nagel is the guy that kind of influenced me early on in that direction of not a lot of line work, but it's a kind of elegant figure drawing, facial drawing style. He was the guy in the `80s, all of the Miami Vice, Duran Duran covers and all that stuff. That inspired the eliminating of a lot of extraneous lines. That's why my stuff is bare. I just try to capture it all with as little as possible, but still make it really identifiable and, hopefully, still have it look appealing.

As a fan of the show, what did you have to have in the piece? What's your favorite little bit in there?

I'd have to say the dog, probably. The little dog with the costume, which is so laughable when you watch it in the episode, but it's just something I always ... I knew I wanted to get it in there. I also had to make a decision whether I wanted to show Jimmy Doohan's missing finger or not, which you can actually see in an episode of TOS. People have called me out on that, but I decided to leave it in because I think they faked it on the show most of the time and they had the stuntman or the double doing the transporter effect. So, in canon, he, I guess, has all five fingers on his hand. I chose to give him the five fingers. But the dog was probably my favorite thing to put in there.

What do you make of all the complementary elements of the exhibition, such as the books and puzzles and mugs based on the art?

The puzzle was a surprise. Nobody told me about the puzzle. I saw that one day and I was really pleasantly surprised. I think Star Trek fans are probably enjoying it. I hope they are. I don't know. I looked for reviews on Amazon for the first person that actually does the puzzle and posts a review on it.

Shouldn't you be the person able to assemble the puzzle faster than anyone on Earth?

Yes, exactly. I have to take myself out of it at work. We do puzzles. I work at Warner Brothers and at lunch we sometimes do puzzles and I definitely have to take a back seat because I know where every piece goes.

Abell's Star Trek The Original Series 50th Anniversary Poster, which measures 27"x40", is available for purchase and priced at $40. Go to www.dustyabell.com to buy it.

incarnate-david-mazouz

Director Brad Peyton has some big projects lined up including Rampage and Malignant Man. Currently, he’s promoting the newly released horror film, Incarnate, starring Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Carice van Houten (Game of Thrones), and David Mazouz (Gotham). The movie follows an exorcist who has the technology to enter the subconscious of a possessed person.

“It’s so unpredictable. At the exact same time, I had an animated TV show going in production in Canada, I was a week away from shooting Incarnate, and then I got the job on San Andreas,” Peyton explained to Nerd Reactor on why the movie’s coming out now. “I was suddenly slammed like more than I have ever been slammed in my entire life. Obviously, I couldn’t say no to any of it because it’s a rain or shine industry. You just never know when you’re going to be working next.”

“San Andreas was such a beast of a movie, I couldn’t really get back to it,” he continued. “I just had to hit pause on it. I felt really bad for the cast and producers. They all supported me in doing it because, obviously, I wanted to give it my full attention. It was a little odd, but it’s kind of like champagne problems. Like how can you complain that you got San Andreas and Incarnate? We just had to wait. A movie like San Andreas that had a release date, was so big, and there were so many people working on it. That’s like a gigantic machine that’s just going to go no matter what you do. Incarnate was so small. We can kind of hit paused, left it for a minute and jumped back into it. It’s like having kids. They’re all your babies, and you want to give your full attention to all of them.”

Horror movies are known to be released during the Halloween season. That’s not the case with Incarnate.

“It really came down to the fact that there was basically an opening in the programming where there wasn’t a film like this for a while,” said the director. “There hasn’t been a horror film three or four weeks, and there won’t be another one for a couple of weeks. For fans of horror, it’s perfect because they can go get their fix.”

“When I first read the script and sat down with Jason [Blum] and talked to him about doing something, he was all about like, ‘This isn’t your average horror film.’ This idea that it is kind of an exorcism movie but it doesn’t fall into the normal, faith-based catholic/exorcist storyline. It’s more of a scientific, almost Inception-y idea about a guy who has developed a technology to put himself asleep and to enter the subconscious of the possessed person in order to get the demon out.”

Fans of Gotham will surely recognize David Mazouz, who plays young Bruce Wayne. In Incarnate, he is the victim of a demon possession.

“We got him right before he became Bruce Wayne,” said Peyton about Mazouz’s casting. “It’s always scary to a filmmaker to get a kid actor because you’re not sure what you’re going to get. But he was so good. Honestly, he really surprised everybody. Even the very first time we rolled film on him, I remember Aaron and I looked at each other like, ‘Oh my god. This kid is brilliant.’ He’s super talented. That’s one of the things about the movie I’m really proud of. The cast is really, really good. Obviously, Aaron is a very high-level actor, but then everyone in it – Carice, Catalina [Sandino Moreno], Breanne [Hill], David, Matt [Nable] – they, all from top to bottom, brought it in this movie. It’s nice to be able to combine good dramatic acting with a genre movie.”

“Filmmaking, there’s so many facets of it. I’m definitely inspired to kind of try new things all the time,” said Peyton about his different projects. “For me with the movie, beyond the big concept, it’s the characters that drew me to it. In San Andreas and in this movie, the similarity is the fact that there’s a slightly damaged character at the core. In this movie, Ember’s (Eckhart) family has died at the hands of a demon. His wife and his young son died. He’s not been able to move on from that trauma. That trauma has completely crafted his life. It has put him in a wheelchair, made him a borderline alcoholic, and driven him to become an incarnate to hunt down demons and develop this technology and this ability. I’m drawn to that kind of anti-hero or flawed character. I think you can see a correlation between that and Dwayne’s character in San Andreas.”

Incarnate is now in theaters.

BBC has released several images from the Doctor Who Christmas Special: The Return of Mysterio and they are very telling indeed.

From the looks of it, it seems that the Doctor has met the superhero  “Mysterio” (or could be G for Grant) before as a child and possibly inspire him to become a superhero, played by Justin Chatwin. The Doctor does do some sort of machinery with the young child, which could explain how Grant obtained his powers.

Of course, there is the reporter like Lois Lane (Charity Wakefield) for him to fall in love with as well. I have no idea whose baby it is in the photos, but we know it’s connected with Grant. It could be the end of the scene when the reporter and Grant fall in love and have a family – which is my best guess.

We also learn a bit about the aliens the Doctor will be dealing with. The aliens have a slash on their face and it could be given to them in that locked up room we saw in the trailer.

Other than that, the photos don’t seem to be telling me anything else. What do you think? Check out the images below and give your thoughts on what could happen.

Doctor Who Christmas Special: The Return of Doctor Mysterio official synopsis:

This Christmas on BBC One, the Doctor joins forces with a comic-book superhero in New York for a heroic special written by Steven Moffat, titled ‘The Return of Doctor Mysterio’.

The family favourite will return on Christmas day as the Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, joins forces with an investigative journalist, played by Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall, The Player) and a superhero to save New York from a deadly alien threat.

Steven Moffat, Writer and Executive Producer, says: “I’ve always loved superheroes and this Christmas Doctor Who dives into that world. My favourite superhero is Clark Kent. Not Superman, Clark Kent.”

Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black, War of the Worlds) plays Grant in the special, he says: “Working with the amazing people at Doctor Who has been one of the most fun and rewarding projects I’ve ever had the pleasure of being involved with.”

Matt Lucas (Nardole) will also be joining the cast of the special with Adetomiwa Edun (Lucifer, Bates Motel), Aleksandar Jovanovic and Logan Hoffman.

The 60 minute Doctor Who Christmas Special will air on BBC One and is written by Steven Moffat, Executive Produced by Brian Minchin, Produced by Peter Bennett and Directed by Ed Bazalgette (Poldark), it was shot in Cardiff at BBC Wales Roath Lock Studios.
