Aside from headliner John Boyega, there aren’t any “big” names in the Pacific Rim sequel, aside from Scott Eastwood (who isn’t quite as well-known as his surname). Guillermo del Toro’s original plan for Uprising (previously titled Maelstrom) was for Charlie Day, Burn Gorman and Rinko Kikuchi to reprise their roles from the first film, but when Steven S. DeKnight took over directing duties, those plans became far less certain — and we’ve been left to wonder which characters, if any, might actually return. Thankfully, a new set photo helps clear things up a bit.
In the midst of a dreary summer for blockbusters, Star Trek Beyond was a light in the darkness, returning the rebooted franchise to the fun, funny, and exciting roots of its 2009 predecessor. But even a cast as professional and talented as this one made plenty of mistakes, the best of which are preserved forever in the newly released Star Trek Beyond blooper reel.
This has been an underwhelming summer (to say the least), but there’s still hope that August will end this movie season on a positive note. One of our most anticipated releases of the month is Pete’s Dragon, which our own Erin Whitney calls a “worthy remake” and “one of the most stunning live-action animation hybrids Disney has made in years.” That’s the sort of praise that could really get you excited for Disney’s latest reimagining, but just in case you needed a little extra convincing, this new trailer is pretty persuasive.
The first official teaser for Disney's remake of Pete's Dragon arrives on Sunday evening, but you can catch a glimpse of the friendly new dragon with a new poster and motion poster for the upcoming film. You can't see the big green guy's face, but these posters do give us a sense of where Disney and director David Lowery are heading with their reimagining of the 1977 fantasy classic.
Although we’ve already seen the first official trailer for Star Trek Beyond, there’s still plenty we don’t know about the upcoming sequel, directed by Justin Lin and co-written by star Simon Pegg. We know Idris Elba is the villain, that Kingsman’s Sofia Boutella plays an awesome-looking alien, and…that’s about it. A new set video with the cast sheds a little more light on what we can expect from Beyond, including some new weapons and uniforms and one very intriguing secret regarding John Cho’s Sulu.
This delightful new video from the set of Star Trek Beyond offers fans a chance to boldly go where no Star Trek fan has gone before — with a walk-on role in the upcoming sequel. But this isn’t your average contest. Fans are encouraged to contribute to the Omaze charity fundraiser in order to participate, meaning that your goodwill could earn you a very good time.
Most people who saw 2012’s Dredd, a dark reboot of the classic British comic book anti-hero Judge Dredd, dug it. Almost 20 years after Sylvester Stallone made a thoroughly campy mess of the property in Judge Dredd, director Pete Travis, screenwriter Alex Garland and star Karl Urban produced a far more faithful version of Dredd with a bleak tone, gritty action, and a hero who never takes off his signature helmet.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, ‘Suicide Squad’ story details have emerged, ‘Aquaman’ seeks a director and a villain, and CBS casts is Supergirl.
Late last week it was reported that WB was eyeing Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal as possible replacements for Tom Hardy, who recently dropped out of ‘Suicide Squad.’ And now an even bigger casting report has emerged, adding Karl Urban to the mix of potential Hardy replacements, and offering details on Jared Leto’s Joker, plus a possible cameo from Ben Affleck’s Batman.
‘Aquaman’ does’t hit theaters until 2018, but we’ve already begun hearing early reports about the project, which stars Jason Momoa in the role he was basically born to play with that magnificent damn hair. Previously, it was reported that ‘Mud’ director Jeff Nichols was being eyed to helm the aquatic superhero flick, but it looks like WB has added another name to the mix: ‘300: Rise of an Empire’ director Noam Murro. And rumor has it they’ve also got their sights set on ‘Dredd’ star Karl Urban for a supporting role.
