Next month brings Guy Ritchie‘s swinging spy action adventure The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (watch the trailer here), but the Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director is already busy on his next film, in a completely different time period yet again.

Pacific Rim and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam plays the title role, and now some first look photos have just surfaced, showing off a rather gruff King Arthur and his trusty sword Excalibur.
See the King Arthur photos after the jump! Read More »

The new Crimson Peak trailer has just dropped, and you can check it out after the jump.

The European Film Market is kicking off, which is why we’re starting to get information on some films we’ve heard about for a long time. The latest is Lost City of Z, which has been in development for some time from Brad Pitt’s company Plan B. Sienna Miller and Robert Pattinson are also starring, and the film is now set to shoot this summer. Hunnam is taking the role Benedict Cumberbatch was once going to play, but with Cumberbatch shooting Doctor Strange beginning in May, there’s no way for him to do the Lost City of Z movie.

I think I’ve been guardedly positive about the Escape From New York remake in the past, but today I’m not feeling so charitable. This shouldn’t be a thing. But it might still be a thing, and a new report lists three names that top the Escape From New York wishlist for stars. Sitting right at the top is Charlie Hunnam, of Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim.

Like we said, the Legendary Pictures booth at San Diego Comic-Con is very Guillermo del Toro. On one side, Crimson Peak (Read about that here). On the other side is a unique, virtual reality experience called Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot. Attendees will sit down in one of three Oculus Rift stations and immediately be transported into the head of a towering Jaeger, ready for battle with an evil Kaiju.
Having never tried Oculus Rift before in my life, this was quite the transformative experience. It’s one you can check out on the Comic-Con floor in booth 3920 and maybe even at home as the experience teased something in 2017 at the end (though the new film is coming out that year too). Below, read about the whole Pacific Rim: Jaegar Pilot experience.
