Pacific Rim

EDIT: Bumped with a few hours left. 

Starting next week, the Prop Store is letting fans own a piece of Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim. On August 25, an online auction will begin that includes over 300 original props, costumes and set decoration pieces used in the summer blockbuster. We’re talking full on Jaeger pilot suits all the way down to the smallest little background details.

Most of this stuff can get pretty expensive, though, which is where /Film comes in. We’re proud to offer you the ability to win one of two authentic props from the film for free. We have a Kaiju Organ Jar and Loccent shirt, which are the men behind the Jaegar program.

All you have to do is send us an e-mail with the name and brief description of either the Kaiju or Jaeger of your dreams and you’re automatically entered. The contest will run for one week. Below, find out more details and see photos of the prizes for the Pacific Rim auction. Read More »

Nick Cave Really Wants to Score a Horror Film

nick-cave-20000-days

Nick Cave is a killer rock songwriter, and he and creative partner Warren Ellis have crafted a significant identity as a film scoring duo. Their music for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is among the great western film scores, and they’ve done excellent music for films such as The Proposition and Lawless. They scored the upcoming film Far From Men (trailer here).

Cave says that while he and Ellis love doing that work, they want to do even more, and in different genres. Specifically they want to do a horror film. Read his comments below and someone, please, call these guys to make it happen.  Read More »

Flash poster

Is Barry Allen drunk, or just a vigorous self-promoter? In this Flash poster for The CW’s new TV show, the hero is depicted running down a street in Central City. For some reason, he’s running in a zig-zag pattern that occasionally points him backwards. But whatever; the guy is so fast that he’ll still get where he’s going with time to spare.

And The Flash is meant to be fun, after all, so what’s a little time spent running just for fun? Speaking of, this poster is also decorated with a few little easter eggs. Some point to the series’ companion show, Arrow, while others hint at future developments for the series. You’ll need an even more high-res version to pick everything out, but get started via the one below. Read More »

Exists (1)

1999′s The Blair Witch Project wasn’t the first film ever to utilize the found-footage format, but it definitely went a long way toward popularizing it. Since then we’ve had more found-footage horror movies can we can count, and it’s only very recently that the trend has shown any sign of slowing down.

All of which means that any film in the format released today is gonna have to work a bit harder to feel fresh. Even if it’s by the guy who helped make the subgenre what it is in the first place, Eduardo Sánchez. The Blair Witch director is back this fall with the found-footage Bigfoot movie Exists, and it feels, well, like a lot of other things that have copied Blair Witch in the past 15 years. Watch the Exists trailer after the jump.

Connection trailer

La French, aka The Connection for international festival audiences, jumps off from the same ’60s and ’70s drug-trafficking patterns that inspired The French Connection. Jean Dujardin stars as a young magistrate thrust into an attempt to corral international heroin smuggling, and follows his “violent six-year campaign to bring down the kingpin of a major narcotics ring.”

A French-language trailer (no subs, sorry) has arrived just in advance of the film’s world premiere at TIFF. Shot on 35mm, this one has a great look, and Dujardin seems to be in a particularly energetic mode. Cédric Jimenez directed the film, which also stars Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette, and Benoît Magimel. Check out The Connection trailer below.
