Pacific Rim Uprising NYCC Panel

After starring in one of the biggest blockbusters ever, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and headlining one of the most eagerly anticipated films of 2018, Pacific Rim Uprising, you’d think John Boyega would be comfortable with idea of being called a sci-fi icon by now. But as evidenced during the latter sci-fi sequel’s panel at New York Comic-Con on Friday, he still remains remarkably humble.

Replicas NYCC Panel

How many times can we see the Frankenstein concept of bringing back dead people play out on the big screen, you ask?  Short answer: countless times. Keanu Reeves is starring in Replicas, the latest in a long line of films, mostly told from a male perspective mind you, which tampers with death and recreation. If you haven’t seen it already.

I have nothing against films that explore the idea of cloning. Though, I think BBC America’s small screen gem Orphan Black did an exceptional job taking on themes of feminism, sisterhood, and the politics of science.

But according to Reeves, Replicas is more about how man manipulates nature for his own selfish needs, which makes me significantly less excited about it. “There’s an idea of control, an impulse to create and manifest. This film is having a conversation with that.”

Neill Blomkamp short film

In movies like Chappie, District 9, and Elysium, director Neill Blomkamp has explored the intersection of humanity and technology. It’s a topic he returns to again and again, and it’s something he’s obsessed with as a storyteller. So it’s no surprise that Blomkamp is exploring the same concept in a new way with Adam: The Mirror, a new short film from his experimental Oats Studios that was rendered in real time entirely in the Unity game engine.

gal gadot for bride of frankenstein

Gal Gadot could trade in her shield for a white gown and wig, if Bride of Frankenstein director Bill Condon gets his wish granted.

The classic monster movie remake and next entry into Universal’s so-called Dark Universe has been indefinitely delayed, and there’s nothing much for the team behind it to do except twiddle their thumbs and make casting suggestions in case stars Javier Bardem and Angelina Jolie leave the project. And Condon’s number one backup pick is Wonder Woman herself.
