The original cast of Horrible Bosses — Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey — are now at work bringing their original roles back to life in Horrible Bosses 2. Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz are also on board, playing “new adversaries standing between the guys and their dreams of success.”
What are those dreams of success, exactly? They involve what can only be called a giant paradigm shift for these losers. Read More »

Saving the world from a terrifying race of giant sea monsters is serious business. Making a movie about saving the world from a terrifying race of giant sea monsters appears to be a whole other matter.
Although the characters of Pacific Rim weren’t much given to smiling, giggling, or goofing off — they seemed pretty preoccupied with the whole “cancelling the apocalypse” thing — the cast and crew apparently found plenty of opportunities to laugh on set. Check out an adorable gag reel after the jump.

We still don’t know whether Pacific Rim will ever get a sequel, but Guillermo del Toro‘s been dreaming up plotlines for one since way before the first film ever opened. Now star Charlie Day‘s revealed a tantalizing tidbit about one of the director’s many ideas.
According to Day, his nerdy scientist character Newt Geiszler was originally supposed to be the villain of Pacific Rim 2. Whether Del Toro’s still considering the idea is unclear, but Day seems to have other hopes for his character, anyway. Hit the jump to see what he said.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim won’t be out for another week or so, but some of its nomenclature has already begun to permeate geek culture. “Kaiju” and “Jaeger,” words some fans were very familiar with, are becoming more common in geek circles as Warner Bros. gets closer to releasing their massive monster vs. robot movie on July 12.
Lots of the talk over the past few days, though, has been surrounding the non-geek audience and their knowledge/anticipation of the film. The “tracking,” as it’s called, is reportedly low for a film of this magnitude. Some blame that on the fact we know about the monsters and robots, but we don’t know the humans of Pacific Rim. Names like “Stacker Pentecost” and “Hannibal Chau” aren’t quite as recognizable as the Jaeger name “Gipsy Danger.”
This latest, and probably final trailer feels like a direct answer to that criticism. While there’s still plenty of giant action, we learn about the neural connection jaeger pilots have to one another, see more of Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, and Rinko Kikuchi, and even get a hint at the demons that Charlie Hunnam‘s character, Raleigh Beckett, must face. Check it out below. Read More »
At this point we’ve seen a lot from Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, but with a couple weeks left before the film opens, why not one more trailer? (Here’s why: the film needs more of a guaranteed audience than it already has, and so Warner Bros. and Legendary are trying to show people what this one is.)
This extended 2-minute TV spot features a longer version of the “apocalypse” speech from Idris Elba, and a more detailed presentation of the launch sequence for the giant robot Jaegers, too. There are some other flashes of new footage, along with a quiet, fearful audio track that goes for tense breaths rather than big “braaaaahm!” noises. There’s good stuff here, though I almost would have preferred to wait for the full film to see a few of these shots. Read More »
I visited the Toronto set of Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim on March 28th 2012. While on set, we toured the art room, watched filming, saw a bunch of the sets, and interviewed Guillermo and some of the cast. You’ll be able to read those transcripts over the next week on the site, but after the jump you can read a writeup of over 80 things I learned on set (3,685 words worth, and this is one really worth reading) alongside a video blog I recorded with Steve from Collider giving our thoughts on what we had seen.

Monsters University features all the entertainment and heart you’ve come to expect from Pixar, and then some. We meet Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) during their college years, as the company’s first prequel is set years before the events of 2001’s Monsters Inc.
Director Dan Scanlon turns that simple story idea into a great, fast paced college comedy with an intriguing blend of emotional highs and lows. Every single character and moment is played to near perfect effect, leaving the audience dumbfounded at how the movie constantly keeps raising the bar. Just when you think it can’t get better, it does, and you’ll leave the theater fulfilled, but also wildly surprised at where Pixar goes this time around.
