Pacific Rim Uprising Gipsy Avenger

Back in February, a piece of promotional art for Pacific Rim: Uprising (formerly known as Maelstrom) revealed three new designs for the jaegers we’ll see battling giant monsters in the sci-fi sequel. One of those jaegers appeared to be an upgraded version of Gipsy Danger, the eventual hero robot of the first Pacific Rim, and now that assumption has been confirmed.

Collectible toy company Tamashii Nations will be making some products tied in with Pacific Rim: Uprising, and at an event in New York City this weekend, they revealed the first official look at their toy version of the new jaeger known as Gipsy Avenger. There are even some details on the upgraded weapons that the new jaeger has hidden in its body.

Wonder Woman TV Spots - Gal Gadot

Some of the internet was abuzz yesterday about a supposed lack of promotion for Wonder Woman at this time with a little over a month to go until the film arrives on June 2. The logic behind this is that the official Warner Bros. YouTube channel for Wonder Woman has significantly less videos promoting the movie than Suicide Squad when the movie was at the same point in its marketing cycle. Forget the fact that Suicide Squad had a much larger roster of lesser known main characters they had to introduce as opposed to one of the most well known superheroes of all time. Clearly, there’s a conspiracy afoot here!

Anyway, it seems like Warner Bros. Pictures’ ears must have been burning yesterday, because they’ve released two new Wonder Woman TV spots, including one that gives a sneak peek at the villain Ares facing off with Gal Gadot. Plus, for all you dedicated Wonder Woman fans out there, there’s an Ultimate Ticket you can pick up that will let you see the movie as many times as you want. This is just the beginning of the onslaught of marketing we’ll see over the next month for Wonder Woman.

Hit the jump to watch the TV spots and get details on the Ultimate Ticket. Read More »

manipulated studio logos

Studio logos serve a general purpose for any movie. They can suggest a type of film – people have a basic idea of what a Disney movie entails – or simply a sense of pomp and circumstance. While there’s no shortage of studio or production company logos, there aren’t as many cases of filmmakers playing around with those logos in front of their movies. This list highlights 25 such unique cases over 80 years, from the goofy to the ominous.

gal gadot pregnant during wonder woman reshoots

Gal Gadot came pretty close to actually becoming a real Wonder Woman when she returned to Leavesden Studios outside London to finish some reshoots for Wonder Woman.

It was November of last year, and Gadot was five months pregnant with her second child, her baby bump conspicuously showing. But through some movie magic and some plain old female badassery, Gadot filmed the reshoots without a hitch, showing us all up.

Suicide Squad Criticism

Though there are plenty of passionate fans who absolutely love the movies release in the DC Extended Universe so far, there are also plenty of viewers who have been disappointed with the recent offerings of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, even fans who liked what director Zack Snyder did with Man of Steel.

One of the more rampant pieces of criticism is that Warner Bros. and DC are trying to bite off more than they can chew with stories that are convoluted and all over the place. Part of that problem comes from these movies trying to introduce too many characters far too quickly and expecting viewers to care about them just as fast. At least that’s what Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt thinks one of the problems was with Suicide Squad
