New ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ Poster Takes a Page Out of ‘Hamilton’s Book

Universal Pictures and Legendary have released a new poster for Pacific Rim Uprising, ahead of a new trailer debut tomorrow. Daredevil Season 1 showrunner Steven S. DeKnight takes over as director after Guillermo del Toro departed the sequel to make The Shape of Water (that turned out Ok), and the story finds John Boyega playing Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba’s Pacific Rim hero Stacker Pentecost. Jake follows in his father’s footsteps to become a star Jaegar pilot when the Kaiju once again threaten the world with an impending apocalypse. From the very first trailer it’s …

Dwayne Johnson Battles Monsters In Epic New Rampage Trailer

Tomb Raider isn’t the only video game adaptation coming down the pipeline this year. Rampage, which is based on Midway’s arcade classic, has officially set up shop at New Line and will star Dwayne Johnson as a primatologist named Davis Okoye, “a man who keeps people at a distance and shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth.”

Indeed, George is one of three animals to be grossly mutated as a result of a genetic experiment gone horribly, horribly wrong. A lizard and wolf are also in line to become hulking rage monsters, for those keeping track, and it seems that Johnson’s Okoye will have his hands full dealing with them all.

Or at least, that’s what this latest trailer teases. Though not terribly long, it promises a showdown between “big” and “bigger” as we

Latest ‘Pacific Rim Uprising ‘ Trailer a Sensory Overload
I wasn’t a big fan of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim (I’d much rather watch Robot Jox), so I’m not especially excited about seeing its followup, Pacific Rim Uprising, opening on March 23, 2018. It’ll be Jaeger vs. Jaeger, Monster vs. Jaeger and Boyega vs. Monster in the Steven S. DeKnight-directed sequel, now just two short months away. […]

John Boyega’s Jaeger Battles Kaiju in Pacific Rim Uprising Trailer

Legendary released a new trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising. In 2013, writer-director Guillermo del Toro released Pacific Rim, a sci-fi blockbuster that featured massive robots – called Jaegers – piloted by drift compatible humans battling kaiju monsters from another dimension. Though the film ended with the remaining Jaeger pilots successfully closing the breach between Earth and the kaiju realm, suffering a number of losses along the way, the story of Pacific Rim will continue in the upcoming sequel. Del Toro stepped down as writer and director on the followup, leaving Steven S. DeKnight to direct Pacific Rim Uprising, though he did stay on as executive producer.

Godzilla: Monster Planet Review (Minor Spoilers)

  • Cinelinx
The 32nd theatrically released Godzilla movie, Godzilla: Monster Planet or Godzilla: Planet of Monsters, which came out last November in Japan, has become available this week via Netflix. What makes this one unique is that it’s the first-ever animated cinematic adventure starring the king of monsters. This is a good start to a planned trilogy of anime movies, although not without its flaws. There are some minor spoilers in here, so if you’re enraged by spoilers, consider yourself forewarned.

Originally titled “Gojira: Kaiju Wakusei” in Japan, Godzilla: Monster Planet was first intended to be an anime TV series but plans were changed. Due to the deal with Legendary Pictures, (Who made the 2014 American film Godzilla), Toho Studios decided not to make a sequel to the award-wining Shin Godzilla (Aka Godzilla Resurgence) but still wanted Godzilla to have original cinematic material in Japan since the 65th anniversary of Gojira is coming up.

Guillermo del Toro on How ‘The Shape of Water’ Was Almost Shot in Black and White
This story about Guillermo del Toro and “The Shape of Water” first appeared in the Oscar Noms Preview issue of TheWrap’s Oscar magazine. Guillermo del Toro has often worked in the rich cinematic margins, making genre films like “The Devil’s Backbone,” “Hellboy,” “Pacific Rim” and “Crimson Peak” that please sci-fi and horror fans but don’t register with awards voters. But 2006’s “Pan’s Labyrinth” was a notable exception, landing six Oscar nominations and winning three of them. Now comes “The Shape of Water,” a luminous fairy tale that has already led all films in nominations for both the Golden Globes and.

Nine industry storylines set to dominate 2018

From harassment to superplatforms, Screen gazes into its crystal ball…

1. Harassment…can the industry be the change it seeks?

Learning often comes through pain. So hopes the film industry, whose seedier practices have been widely exposed in 2017. From Harvey Weinstein to Kevin Spacey, John Lasseter to Roy Price, 2017 will be remembered as the year Hollywood’s elite was shaken up by allegations of harassment and misconduct. The revelations have come thick and fast - largely thanks to the testimonies of brave victims and journalists - and for once status has not granted immunity. Europe and Asia have also grappled with many instances of alleged wrongdoing and stories have acted as a catlyst for change in other industries. The floodgates are now open and more details will emerge, but will 2018 be the year that concrete changes are made, meaningful structures are put in place and deeply engrained values are reformed?

Top 12 Kaiju Films of All Time

  • Cinelinx
It’s fun to watch giant monsters go on a rampage and destroy cities, or to go head-to-head in a super-sized slugfest. For decades now, the giant monster/kaiju genre has developed a strong fan following, while mostly being dismissed by critics. Over the years, Godzilla and King Kong have become household names. Let’s end the year by looking at a dozen of the greatest kaiju movies of all time.

Originally, this genre was called ‘Monster on the loose’ films before changing to giant monster movies and finally embracing the Japanese phase Dai Kaiju, or just Kaiju. There have been great ones and terrible ones. We’ll look at the terrible ones at another time. Today, let’s check out the 12 best.

12. Godzilla Vs. Destroyah (1995): Who’d ever have thought a Godzilla film could be so touching? This is the film that killed off the Heisei version of the king of monsters.

Guillermo del Toro Originally Pitched ‘Trollhunters’ As a Live-Action Drama Like ‘Stranger Things’

Guillermo del Toro Originally Pitched ‘Trollhunters’ As a Live-Action Drama Like ‘Stranger Things’
It may seem like Guillermo del Toro is up to a lot of different things at once. But while his current projects may seem to verge wildly at the moment, from the award-nominated fantasy film “The Shape of Water” to the Netflix/Dreamworks Animation series “Trollhunters,” there is one common element — one which unites those projects as well as much of his past work.

“I’m a guy that’s been doing fairy tales all his life,” del Toro told IndieWire. “It can be ‘Shape of Water,’ it can be ‘Pacific Rim,’ it can be [‘Trollhunters’]. It can be Pan’s Labyrinth. There is that thruline.”

While the intention might be the same, we do see variations in del Toro’s approach to making film and television. For example, the second season of “Trollhunters,” which premieres Friday on Netflix, is far less adult than some of his other work, even though

Verve Continues to Show Dominance in Spec Market Following Blacklist, Hitlist Unveilings

While the major agencies still had plenty to gloat about after the recent unveiling of both the Hitlist and the Blacklist, Verve Talent and Literary Agency is looking to be the big winner when it comes to repping writers on those lists.

For the Hitlist, which is a list of the 90 best already-produced specs of 2017, Verve ranked first among agencies, repping 17 of the writers on the list. For the Blacklist, which is a list of the best specs that have yet to be produced, Verve ranked second, trailing only CAA and repping 14 of the specs appearing on the list.

“Thrilled that our hard work and love for the writer business has been recognized by the best readers in town!” said co-founder Bryan Besser.

To most agencies, these lists serve as a benchmark to measure their standing in the biz in terms of their clients’ productivity. For the past several years, Verve has held its own,

How Guillermo del Toro’s version of Pacific Rim 2 was originally going to end

The sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 mecha-kaiju-brawler Pacific Rim has come a long way from its humble beginnings. The movie was originally helmed by Del Toro until he ultimately decided to step down. The reason for this seems to boil down to scheduling: due to Legendary Pictures being sold to Chinese company The Wanda Group, production needed to be delayed by nearly a year. It was then that Daredevil’s Steven DeKnight took over directorial duties. Since then, the film has undergone a massive makeover, which is clearly evident in the first trailer.

So, what would have Guillermo’s film have looked like? Speaking to Collider. Paul Austerberry — who served as production designer for the original Pacific Rim — revealed how Pacific Rim 2 was originally going to end:

“And then of course I think we finished in the west coast, I think it was San Francisco that we were gonna end up in.

The 50 top films of 2017 in the Us: No 7 The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro’s dark fairytale continues our countdown, with Sally Hawkins starring in a disturbing and thrilling romance that is the director’s best film to date

Guillermo del Toro is, without doubt, a film-maker of considerable talent. His canvas is visually unique, his imagination seemingly boundless and he’s made a handful of unforgettable fantasies. But there’s often a gap between what we want from his work and what we receive.

There was the disappointing creature feature Mimic, his studio-tampered English language debut, noisy but empty actioner Pacific Rim, the gothic nothingness of Crimson Peak and his silly small screen horror series The Strain. Not since 2006’s Pan’s Labyrinth have we seen him really find a way to coalesce his aesthetic sensibilities with his storytelling skills.

Guillermo Del Toro has made a name for himself as a visionary director.

Think of films like Pan's Labyrinth, Crimson Peak, and even Pacific Rim. The man knows how to do fantasy, and he takes it to a whole new level with his latest, The Shape of Water.

An Old Hollywood-inspired romance, The Shape of Water is the definition of escapism. It'll simultaneously make you feel nostalgic while also displaying some truly unique visuals that only someone with Del Toro's skill could pull off.

The film follows a mute woman working as a cleaner in a secretive government institution where a mysterious sea creature has been captured. Starring Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Doug Jones and Michael Stuhlbarg, The Shape of Water is bound to be one of the best films of the year,
