Pacific Rim Uprising teaser

Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 kaiju vs. robots movie Pacific Rim had a reported $190 million budget, but only earned $101 million at the domestic box office. Thankfully for fans of the film, it ended up making $411 million worldwide because international audiences ate it up, and after some intense number-crunching by the studio, a sequel was eventually given the green light.

Now, four years later, the first teaser trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising has arrived, and it features a quick appearance by star John Boyega. Check it out below.

Blade Runner 2049 trailer vr

I’m flying around LAPD headquarters, in pursuit of a replicant. We’re both in spinners. For the most part, it keeps its distance as we fly through the rain and neon lights of Los Angeles. It’s kind of exhilarating, the kind of VR trip you absolutely want to experience if you’re in San Diego for this year’s Comic-Con.

If you’re not, then read all about my experience with the Blade Runner 2049 VR – which will be made available later this year – and more.

Doug Jones Star Trek Discovery

You probably know Doug Jones as the man who played Abe Sapien in Hellboy, the Faun and the Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth, and the Silver Surfer in 2007’s otherwise-forgettable Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. But very soon, you might know him best as Lieutenant Saru, a character on the upcoming CBS All Access drama Star Trek: Discovery.

In the show’s first trailer, we saw that Jones’ alien character was “biologically determined for one purpose alone: to sense the coming of death.” Aside from that, we didn’t know much about him. Now we know all about his alien character’s origins, courtesy of a couple of new interviews. Find out the latest Doug Jones Star Trek Discovery info below.

James Cameron Action Figure

When it comes to action figures inspired by fan favorite movies of the 1980s, the toy manufacturer NECA has been knocking it out of the park. They especially deserve praise for their spectacular line of toys based on both Ridley Scott’s original 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien, and their more recent ongoing line of figures inspired by James Cameron‘s more blockbuster style follow-up Aliens. But now they’re bringing a figure to shelves that no one expected.

Aliens director James Cameron will be getting his own action figure from NECA this fall, but it’s not quite as cool as I hoped it would be. You’ll see what I mean when you check out the photos of the James Cameron action figure below. Read More »

the dark tower creature

The Dark Tower opens in a little over two weeks and the lack of marketing and that 95-minute runtime rightfully have fans of Stephen King’s beloved horror/fantasy series concerned. After years of development, could this long-waited adaptation arrive with a whimper instead of a bang?

It’s a question worth asking (and worrying about). But for now, this new featurette practically doubles as a new trailer, offering all kinds of new footage while various talking heads discuss the finer points of King’s “magnum opus.”

Kylo Ren ship

Adam Driver‘s petulant Star Wars villain Kylo Ren spent a good portion of The Force Awakens pacing around on a Star Destroyer or traveling to planet surfaces in his shuttle, but Darth Vader’s grandson is getting a sleek new ride in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and you can see the first photos of it below.

Plus, writer/director Rian Johnson compares his movie’s tone to other films in the Star Wars saga, and it turns out this movie may be less indebted to The Empire Strikes Back than many might have thought.

Mega Man movie

Back in 2015, we heard that 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment were developing a Mega Man movie based on the popular Nintendo and Game Boy video game. It’s been crickets since then, but now the studio is close to locking in the men who will direct the project: Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the duo behind Catfish and Paranormal Activity 3 and 4.

Young Lando Photo

Update: Ron Howard has shared another image from the set, showing off another cool image that will delight Star Wars fans. Check it out below.

Production is back underway on the Han Solo spin-off that marks the next installment of the A Star Wars Story franchise films that are being released between milestone episodes of the Star Wars saga. Ron Howard stepped up to replace directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and now that the Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind director is hard at work on set, he’s showing fans a little glimpse behind the scenes.

So far there hasn’t been much to see on the set as Lucasfilm is still playing things pretty close to the vest while in production on the movie that has fans worried following the creative differences between Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and executive producer Lawrence Kasdan and the aforementioned departed directing duo. But today, Ron Howard shared a behind the scenes photo that finally gives us our first look at Donald Glover (or maybe his stand-in) as Lando Calrissian. Read More »
