Guillermo del Toro Reveals Story and Casting Details for 'Pacific Rim 2'
It’s been a little over a month since we’ve had an update on Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim 2, but we've got some news today that should make Thanksgiving a little brighter for people who love the thought of giant monsters battling giant robots.
Last time out, we snagged a teaser poster for the new film, and learned that plans are for the sequel to open sometime in 2017. Today, del Toro is talking about where the next film picks up and who will be returning.
In an interview with Collider, the filmmaker sets the stage for where the next film will open:
“It’s a few years after the first one. It’s not an immediate follow-up. It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after – what happens to the Jaeger... Read More
One Movie Theater is Showing the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer 17 Times
Movie fans no doubt already know by now that on Friday November 28, the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be premiering in 30 theaters across the US. To see it on the big screen, you need to go to one of these theaters and simply see any movie showing between then and Sunday. But there's one theater on that list that's taking things to the next level.
That theater is, of course, the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas.
Never ones to just do the normal thing, the Drafthouse is putting on an event where they will play the trailer 17 times over the course of an hour. And not just that, but they're putting together a panel of five Star Wars nerds (and Drafthouse CEO Tim League) to discuss what's in the trailer in between each rewatch of... Read More
James Cameron Delivers the Greatest Quote Ever Regarding His 'Avatar' Sequels
Filmmaker James Cameron is currently hidden away in New Zealand where he’s hard at work on the scripts for his upcoming Avatar sequels. Yet, even there – in isolation on a landmass far away -- Empire magazine managed to track him down. When they found him, he offered up what may be the greatest quote about an upcoming movie in the history of cinema.
Cameron’s been very guarded about the plots of his new films. All we really know is that he’s got a team of writers who spent the better part of seven months together storyboarding every scene for all of the upcoming features. Cameron wouldn’t even tell them who would be writing which sequel until the very last day of the epic brainstorming session – that way, everyone was attuned to... Read More

Justice League: Dark: Guillermo del Toro has submitted his script for Dark Universe, based on the DC Comics series Justice League: Dark, to Warner Bros.

The Geek Beat: 8 Geeky Things to Be Thankful for This Year
Now that Halloween is in the rearview mirror, Thanksgiving is on the horizon – and the geekier side of Hollywood has provided quite the cornucopia of things to be thankful for this year.
Last year, I gave thanks for fresh zombie stories, overseas audiences and various other elements of the year's cinematic slate that made 2013 a good time to be a geek, and this year has provided a whole new set of reasons to be glad about the last 12 months (and look forward to the next 12, of course). From leading men making a name for themselves in genre movies to sci-fi adventures that don't sacrifice science, Hollywood has given geeks a lot to celebrate this year.
Here are eight things I'm thankful for:
Fans of Parks and Recreation have had... Read More
New on DVD/Blu-ray: 'Expendables 3,' 'What If,' Plus: An Exclusive 'A Madea Christmas' Clip
Notable New Releases
It's an odd week for new releases, presumably because most studios know that shoppers are going to be saving their dough for discounted old releases on Black Friday instead of a ton of new releases on a standard Tuesday. With that in mind, there are a few noteworthy options. Stretch calls to mind a spate of '90s comedies set over the course of one increasingly chaotic night. It's weird and a bit out there, but Patrick Wilson and Chris Pine really stand out.
Then there's the middle-of-the-road movies, The Expendables 3 and The Giver. If you're a fan of either brand, you're probably going to do just fine with the movies, which... Read More
Watch: The Creepy Real-Life 'Foxcatcher' Documentary Starring John du Pont
When it comes to this year's creepier awards contenders, Foxcatcher has to be near the top of the list. Bennett Miller's film based on the real-life story of multimillionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) and his bizarre relationship with Olympic wrestlers -- and brothers -- Mark (Channing Tatum) and David Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) plays out like a slow-burn thriller, featuring tremendous acting to go with a story that'll body-slam your emotions by the time it all wraps up.
What we learn about John du Pont throughout the film is that he's a sociopath whose years of being trapped in his mother's shadow slowly pick away at his sense of being, transforming him into a person who desires his own fame and success, but only knows one way to go about achieving it... Read More
Indie Spirit Awards: Your First Look at This Year's Potential Oscar Contenders
The Indie Spirit Award nominations have officially arrived on the scene, signaling a busy few months full of various groups from around the country (and the world) announcing their own picks for the best of the year in movies. The Indie Spirit Awards honor films that were American productions (except where noted) and made for less than $20 million, so while this list definitely represents some of the best movies of the year, there are others -- like The Imitation Game, Wild, The Theory of Everything and Unbroken, to name a few -- that we expect to see in the mix as the Academy Awards approach.
Still, the Indie Spirits are pretty good at predicting awards buzz -- 12 Years a Slave won Best Feature last year and it went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars -- so use it as an early... Read More
