Dune 1984

Denis Villeneuve may not have gotten the call yet from Disney and Lucasfilm to direct a Star Wars movie, but he can make his own — in the form of his Dune remake.

Dune is Frank Herbert’s seminal science-fiction novel published in 1965, years before the first Star Wars film came out in 1977. In fact, Star Wars director George Lucas has acknowledged the influence that Dune had on early drafts of A New Hope, so it’s fitting that Villeneuve may bring it full circle.

heels in Jurassic World

Bryce Dallas Howard is letting her hair down (so to speak) and putting her heels away for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

It’s an issue that’s been tested and Mythbusted, as well as the subject of a thousand think pieces about sexism in the work force. But you don’t have to worry about it becoming another hot topic in its sequel — director J.A. Bayona promises: no heels.

pacific rim uprising featurette

With all the inspiration that the Pacific Rim franchise draws from Japan, it’s no surprise that Tokyo Comic-Con would get an exclusive featurette chock full of new footage of the upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising.

But there’s more to this featurette than a flew splashes of new scenes and peeks at the behind-the-scenes production. This international featurette finally gives us a longer look at the return of Rinko Kikuchi‘s Mako Mori, the star and the warm, beating heart of Guillermo del Toro’s original film.

pacific rim uprising breakdown 38

A few weeks ago, the internet heard news of a potential spin-off between the Pacific Rim movies and the “MonsterVerse,” the current home of King Kong and Godzilla. And it made sense.

But you should never count your kaiju before they hatch – this crossover has already been nipped in the bud by Legendary Pictures producer Cale Boyter.

pacific rim crossover

The movie franchise that started as a love letter to the kaiju monster genre may end up battling some of the OG kaiju in future crossover movies, if Pacific Rim Uprising director Steven S. DeKnight gets his wish.

The sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s affectionate homage to the mecha anime and monster movie genres that sprung out of Japan, Pacific Rim Uprising also happens to hail from the same studio that is currently spearheading Godzilla and King Kong’s cinematic MonsterVerse, Legendary Pictures. So it would not be too difficult for a crossover between the three properties to take place. Because all we’re really missing from the Godzilla and Kong films are giant robots beating them up.
