Red"Red" hits theaters in October, but the final one-sheet poster for Robert Schwentke's adaptation of Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's comic book miniseries debuted online today.

The new image is mash-up of prior "Red" character posters, and features some nice shots of cast members Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich. It's also branded with the tag line "Still Armed. Still Dangerous. Still Got It."

Based on the 2003 Wildstorm comic written by Ellis and illustrated by Hamner, "Red" follows a team of retired black-ops agents who are forced back into the game after a series of attempted assassinations. Read More...

Harvey Pekar" t-shirt that she donned specifically for the show. We chatted a bit about my last interview with Pekar before sitting down. Read More...

Astro CityKurt Busiek has made a big name for himself in superhero comics with runs on A-list titles like "Avengers" and "Superman." "Astro City" showed what he could do in his own, independently created world, though, and Working Title Films wants to take that vision into theaters.

"I'm thrilled to be doing 'Astro City' with Working Title Films," Busiek said, according to a report on SuperHeroHype. "For years, we turned down all offers for the book, but Working Title's track record on great movies like 'Love Actually, 'Oh Brother, Where Are Thou?' and 'Shaun of the Dead,' and their commitment to high-quality, character-driven storytelling, make me confident that this is the perfect place to make an 'Astro City' film a reality."

RedBy Ryan J. Downey

"Red" arrives on theaters October 15, and the cast, filmmakers, and comic creators behind the live-action adaptation of Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's 2003 series were on hand during Comic-Con for a panel that introduced the film to a hall filled with fans.

Here's a moment-by-moment report on what went down during the event:

- Lots of laughs from the crowd during the teaser followed by a huge cheer.

- IGN Movies EIC introduces Warren Ellis, Cully Hamner, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Karl Urban, Mary Louise Parker, Helen Mirren (whose "R.I.P. Harvey Pekar" shirt gets a huge cheer) and Bruce Willis.

- "Every day was fun. It was a really ambitious project and the work that the actors did became easier each week," Willis said. "Because each week we got another big movie star that we were all excited about... It was like recess." Helen adds: "They had the Queen and then they had God."

- In a nod to his Star Trek role, Karl Urban asks the crowd, "Are you out of your Vulcan minds?!" Read More...

"Red" has arrived at Comic-Con, and along with talking to Bruce Willis on the first of our MTV/MySpace Live Shows, we also managed to snag some time with "Red" comic creators Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner. I brought them by Splash Page HQ to chat about the film, the comic, and where the two projects meet... and where they diverge.

In this segment from our interview (don't worry — there's a lot more coming from both creators), I ask Ellis how he thinks the much-discussed differences from the comic will affect the film's source material, and whether it's a good or bad thing when audiences come into a film aware of such differences.

"I think that remains to be seen," said Ellis. "I think that anyone who watches the film and reads the book will quite clearly be able to see the book within the film — it's there at the core." Read More...

RedWe got our first poster for "Red" yesterday, and now two more posters have debuted online for director Robert Schwentke's live-action film based on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's comic book series.

While the first film put the spotlight on Bruce Willis and his character, retired black ops agent Frank Moses, the new posters feature more of Moses' former colleagues. Helen Mirren is "a high-caliber woman" in the poster featuring her character, Victoria, and actor John Malkovich "doesn't get out much" as the dangerously unstable Marvin Boggs.

The two new posters arrived online at Ellis' personal website, where it looks like much of the news surrounding the film will eventually land as we approach its October 15 premiere. Read More...
