With an April 7, 2017 release date already locked in, it’s no surprise Guillermo del Toro is deep into work on Pacific Rim 2. What’s a bit more intriguing is that he’s planning the movie with an eye on the sequel, the not-yet-greenlit Pacific Rim 3.
Whereas Pacific Rim 2 is expected to differ quite a bit from Pacific Rim 1, it seems 2 and 3 may be more closely linked. Hit the jump for del Toro’s updates on both Pacific Rim sequels. (Note: The above image is fan art and not an official release. But it sure looks cool, doesn’t it?)

When the second episode of Star Wars Rebels co-starred C-3PO and R2-D2, you realized they weren’t shying away from recognizable characters. The story of Kanan, Ezra and the rest of the Rebels will primarily take place parallel to anything going on with Obi-Wan Kenobi, the young Skywalkers and more but the Empire is the Empire. And if the Rebels are fighting against it, they’re really fighting against two people: The Emperor and Darth Vader.
But, as we know from the original trilogy, The Emperor is mostly behind the scenes. Vader is his who, at the time of Rebels, is “hunting down and destroying the Jedi.” He’s the boss of The Inquisitor, the primary villain in the series so when Rebels goes to the masses on October 26, Darth Vader will make a brief cameo.
But you already knew that. Below, see what Star Wars Rebels Darth Vader is going to look like. Read More »
In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 things are looking like they’re going from bad to worse for Katniss. The character played by Jennifer Lawrence endured a second round of Games in the last film, but now she has to face the wrath of rulers in The Capitol who won’t stand for even a spark of rebellion to float through the grey haze they call society. And so preventative action has been taken, and in this new Mockingjay Part 1 teaser Katniss is forced to confront it.
Compared to the first trailer this is far more somber, and uses almost entirely new footage. Watch after the jump. Read More »
We’re inching closer and closer to seeing Interstellar. Christopher Nolan‘s latest film, about a space journey undertaken to save the Earth, hits theaters with film-projection capabilities on November 5 and all the others November 7. I think most of us have gotten to the point where we’ve gone dark on the movie, preferring to experience the whole thing in the theater. And with a Christopher Nolan movie, that’s pretty easy. There really isn’t a lot of information or images out there.
However, some new stuff from both columns A and B have hit the net today. On the information side, we’ve learned that the near-three-hour film has more than an hour of IMAX footage. That’s a jump up from Nolan’s last film, The Dark Knight Rises. On the image side, eight new images have been released thanks to an Entertainment Weekly cover story. Read more about the Interstellar IMAX footage and check out the new images and commercials below. Read More »
The first Jurassic World poster is here.
Director Colin Trevorrow tweeted the image, which is very reminiscent of the poster for the original Steven Spielberg film. It’s just the logo, big and imposing, daring fans to enter. This time though, the tagline is “The Park is Open.” Jurassic World itself opens June 12. Check out the Jurassic World poster below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We know the history of Steven Spielberg‘s film E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and we even know some of the fine details. For example, we’ve seen the early alien designs created by Rick Baker for the aborted project Night Skies. It’s obvious that some of those designs made their way to the stream of concepts that influenced ET when that film was born in the wake of Night Skies being scrapped.
Now we’ve got some rarely seen early ET concept art from Ed Verreaux, who worked with Spielberg as production illustrator starting on Raiders of the Lost Ark. The art by Verreaux shows more of the process of Night Skies alien designs being mutated into the friendly guy we know and love at the center of ET. Read More »
