Elysium

Elysium: Viral ads for sci-fi movie Elysium have begun popping up in New York, Los Angeles, and Vancouver. The movie, which stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley, opens in theaters on August 9 and imagines a near-future scenario where rich people can emigrate to the safe, clean, traffic-free satellite called Elysium, but poor people are left behind to rot. [First Showing/Coming Soon]

Comic-Con: San Diego becomes the center of the geek world in about two weeks, and you better believe superheroes will be a big part of Comic-Con. Disney will send talent for panels on its Marvel sequels Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, while Columbia Pictures will do the same for its Marvel sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The latter studio will also be hosting panels with talent from RoboCop and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. [Coming Soon]

The Forbidden Legend: Sex and Chopsticks: A technician hired to do maintanance work on a large LED billboard on a rooftop near a large railway station in Jilin, China, decided to relax for the evening by watching a soft-core sex movie -- thought to be 2008's The Forbidden Legend: Sex and Chopsticks -- on his laptop (in private, we might add). Ten minutes later, however, he was made aware that he was accidentally sharing it with hundreds of puzzled onlookers via the billboard; he didn't realize that his laptop was still connected. Oops! The incident has gone viral in China. [South China Morning Post]

Frozen Trailer: The first teaser for Disney's upcoming animated tale Frozen made it look like a cute movie about animals. But a longer, Japanese-language trailer intended for the international market gives the material a far different spin, positioning it as a dark, exciting adventure filled with action. which makes us anticipate its release on November 27 even more.
