DC Comics fans at San Diego Comic-Con were treated to the ultimate bit of fan service on Friday night while waiting for next morning's panel on the new Batman v Superman movie.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s Comic-Con trailer is pitch-perfect

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s Comic-Con trailer is pitch-perfect

Rebooting a 60s franchise without slipping into camp or cliché is tricky, but it seems 2015's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. may well manage it. The Guy Ritchie spy film has been more than a little overshadowed by the usual roster of superhero blockbusters, but if the latest five minute trailer for the movie from Comic-Con 2015 is anything to go by, it could be a safer bet for your theater dollars. Set during the 1960s, it brings together the best of US and Russian secret agents to foil a nuclear bomb plot.

Star Wars 9 director rumored coming from Jurassic World

Star Wars 9 director rumored coming from Jurassic World

One "special guest" set to be in attendance tonight at Disney's official Star Wars panel has been tipped: Colin Trevorrow. This is the director of Jurassic World and Safety Not Guaranteed - so calling him a quickly rising star would be a gross understatement. At this point on Twitter, Trevorrow has said absolutely nothing about SDCC - no mention whatsoever - and hasn't said anything about any subject since the 5th of July. While an absence of Tweets isn't a guarantee of anything, the director of one of the biggest pop-culture phenomenons of the year not saying anything about Jurassic World happenings at the biggest comic convention of the year isn't exactly normal. He's probably in San Diego right this minute.

Smith just last night made a $10,000 bet that Disney would show new Star Wars video at their presentation tonight.
