'Pacific Rim' wears its influences on its sleeve a blazing badge of honor, never once hiding the fact that much of the world on display in the film is a tribute to Japanese kaiju movies. So, it's not surprising that footage from Guillermo del Toro's wonderful science fiction action movie can be successfully recut into an a trailer for an old school 'Godzilla' movie. And while it's not surprising, it's still really damn cool.
And here we were just counting our blessings that we get a new 'Godzilla' movie, featuring the legendary giant, stomping lizard monster. But as we learned at the 'Godzilla' Comic-Con panel today, we're getting multiple monsters for the price of one -- and one monster in particular will look very familiar to fans of the classic films.
Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson ('Kick-Ass 2'), Bryan Cranston ('Breaking Bad') and Elizabeth Olsen, among others, the reboot was announced during last year's convention and has since kicked off production. So, after all the pre-Comic-Con buzz, what new surprises did Legendary and Warner Bros. Pictures have in store for us?
There's no question, the biggest star at Comic-Con 2013 will be 'Godzilla.' Say what you will for Harrison Ford or Hugh Jackman, they can't knock over buildings with a whip of their tail. And Warner Brothers and Legendary want to make as big an impression at the fest as Godzilla's footprint, so they're inundating us with new material. The latest is this sweet new poster.
We're less than a week away from Comic-Con 2013 -- hard to believe, isn't it? To get you even more excited for this year's events, panels, and toys (so many toys!), 'Godzilla' director Gareth Edwards has put together this little teaser video, promising some very big surprises from Legendary, the studio behind the upcoming reboot.
Last year's Comic-Con convention in San Diego saw the big reveal of Godzilla's return in Legendary Pictures' upcoming reboot, along with the first teaser poster, concepts and the iconic (and trademarked) monster scream. Now it looks like the studio is planning to reveal something big at Comic-Con 2013.
We knew it was only a matter of hours before Comic-Con 2013 unveiled its full Saturday panel line-up. For those of you hard at work making your schedules (or if you want to just look longingly at the line-up), we've got a breakdown of the movie panels you can expect to see at Comic-Con on Saturday, July 20, including 'Godzilla,' 'The LEGO Movie,' and much more.
Roland Emmerich, the director of such disaster-heavy films as 'Independence Day,' '2012,' 'The Day After Tomorrow' and the last 'Godzilla' movie, set his sights on the White House in 'White House Down.' Starring Channing Tatum as Secret Service hopeful John Cale and Jamie Foxx as US President James Sawyer, this "Die Hard in the White House" film starts like any other day until a team of domestic terrorists infiltrate and bring down the White House.
