We heard the first major piece of news to come from FX's Guillermo del Toro adaptation of vampire novel series 'The Strain' the other day, namely that 'House of Cards' breakout Corey Stoll would take the leading role. Now, as the series moves closer to pilot production, former 'LOST' showrunner Carlton Cuse has cast his first island alum, tasking Kevin Durand (Martin Keamy!) with a major new role. Get a taste of 'The Strain' inside!

Just yesterday we were wondering what had become of FX's Guillermo del Toro-helmed pilot 'The Strain,' after HBO announced their own del Toro project 'Monster,' and now we have our answer. 'House of Cards' breakout Corey Stoll has been tapped as the lead in the project, but will the vampire series move forward beyond its pilot order? Hear what FX has to say about a live-action 'The Strain' inside!
While some movies are keeping themselves super secret (ahem 'Star Trek Into Darkness'), 'Pacific Rim' has no bones about putting its giant monsters and giant robots on display in a giant way. Case in point: this brand new 'Pacific Rim' poster with a giant robot making his way down a city street.
All eyes are on acclaimed horror director Guillermo del Toro to deliver in this summer's monster blockbuster 'Pacific Rim,' as well as our continued interest in FX's adaptation of 'The Strain,' but del Toro's next 'Monster' project might be somewhere in between. The 'Pan's Labrynth' director has reportedly teamed with HBO to develop a series based on beloved Naoki Urasawa manga series 'Monster,' but is the concept too out there even for HBO?
Guillermo del Toro's ('Hellboy,' 'Pan's Labyrinth,' 'Pacific Rim') latest venture into the horror genre -- well, as a producer anyway -- was with the Andy Muschietti-directed 'Mama,' and it's hitting DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, May 7. Don't got the money? It's cool, we have five copies on Blu-ray.
'Iron Man 3' and 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' got their screen time during last night's MTV Movie Awards, and now it's time for 'Pacific Rim' to snag the limelight. The first international TV spot for Guillermo del Toro's robots-vs-monsters showdown has hit with some more brief bits of the action.
'Zero Dark Thirty' star Jessica Chastain seems to be omnipresent these days, popping up in every other movie like a gorgeous robot who does not need to sleep and never stops working. The next film on her increasingly lengthy resume will be 'Crimson Peak,' the mysterious horror film from director Guillermo del Toro.
While we wait for more details on Guillermo del Toro's 'Justice League Dark' movie, he's busy assembling a different team to traverse into haunted house territory for 'Crimson Peak.' And word is the only person brave enough to lead a team down that road is 'Star Trek Into Darkness' villain Benedict Cumberbatch.
'Pacific Rim' is easily one of our most anticipated movies of 2013. An epic "Robots vs. Monsters" movie directed by the mad genius Guillermo del Toro, it's truly looking like the highlight of the summer movie season packed with all kinds of expensive blockbuster goodness. One sign that 'Pacific Rim' is going to be something special is a new character poster that doesn't highlight any of the human cast, but rather one of the film's many gigantic robots.
The Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick 'Mama' marked Andy Muschietti's directorial debut and about an $89.2 million box office payoff -- and there are still 43 territories or so to see the film. With all this success, it's only natural for Universal to want to maximise their profit by shelling out a 'Mama 2,' and it looks like the studio is already planning such a move. Too bad it'll most likely be without Muschietti behind the wheel.
