Pacific Rim 2 Loses Charlie Hunnam

26 July 2016 8:08 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For a very longtime, it looked like Pacific Rim 2 wasn't happening. The first movie didn't fare well in the states, but it did great overseas, especially in China. And that's pretty much why we're getting the sequel, now titled Pacific Rim: Maelstrom. But Warner Bros. didn't make the official announcement until after original director Guillermo Del Toro had to dropout due to conflicting future projects. Now, another key piece in the puzzle has also confirmed they won't be back for this follow-up to the 2013 monster movie.

Speaking with Yahoo! Movies, original Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam, who played main Jaeger pilot Raleigh Becket, has confirmed that he won't be back. It's not for a lack of trying, though. The actor was approached about reprising his role early on in the preproduction process. But like Del Toro, he too had a mounting schedule that caused scheduling conflicts.

Hunnam, Kikuchi Not Back For "Pacific Rim 2"

25 July 2016 10:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Appearing at Comic Con to promote Guy Ritchie's "King Arthur" movie, actor Charlie Hunnam confirmed he will not be returning to the role of Raleigh Beckett in the upcoming "Pacific Rim" sequel.

Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, Hunnam confirmed that an early draft featured him heavily, but with the shooting scheduling he wasn't able to fit it in and so he'll be unavailable. He did say: "I'm very excited about it. I'm glad they're making it."

Rinko Kikuchi is also reportedly out and won't return. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" actor John Boyega has already been announced as the male lead in the film, the son of Idris Elba's character Stacker Pentecost.

It's presently unknown if any other actors from the first film like Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Burn Gorman will be back for this second round of kaijus vs. jaegers. Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, who helmed »

12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

DeKnight will make his directorial debut with "Pacific Rim 2. The original Pacific Rim started Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Perlman.

On why none of the original cast members such as Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi have not been announced for the sequel Del Toro said:

"That’s not entirely true. As a producer I learned not to declare anything about a movie I’m not directing. I can tell you this — a lot of »

New Comic-Con Trailer for 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'

23 July 2016 6:06 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We're going to recapture my creatures before they get hurt..." Warner Bros has unleashed one more trailer from Comic-Con, this one for the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We've already seen two trailers for this and a couple of featurettes, but this new trailer finally shows off some of the creatures (big and small) that Newt is trying to collect around New York. Eddie Redmayne stars as Mr. Scamander, a magizoologist. The full cast includes Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman, Jon Voight, Samantha Morton and many others. They could almost starting selling this in a way similar to Pokemon Go, as Newt has to go all over New York and collect magical creatures. But seriously, this looks quite good, I'm pretty much ready to return to this world. The new Comic-Con trailer for David Yates' Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, »

23 July 2016 3:40 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Gosh, hasn’t it been too long since there was a movie set in the Harry Potter universe? Well, dust your wand off and hop out of that room under the stairs because money — er, magic — calls. After a teaser, we are now treated to the first full-length trailer for the Eddie Redmayne-led Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, based on a book that originated in the world of Harry Potter and helmed by long-time Potter director David Yates. Clever, right? Wouldn’t it be cool if Bilbo’s journal in The Lord of the Rings got its own… oh, wait. This first full trailer shows off more beastly wizarding fun and Colin Farrell grimacing — and what a great grimace it is.

New York Is Thrown Into Chaos In Comic-Con Trailer For Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

23 July 2016 3:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After showing it off to those lucky enough to be in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con, Warner Bros. has released the brand new trailer for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. This one really puts an emphasis on both the action and magical creatures in the movie, though we also get a much better look at the villain (at least it seems that way) played by Colin Farrell.

In the movie, Eddie Redmayne stars as wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter outings. The screenplay, meanwhile, was penned by the author of the Harry Potter novels, J.K. Rowling, and her involvement definitely makes this movie feel more exciting than it otherwise might have.

22 July 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bearing the Harry Potter name and a script penned by J.K. Rowling herself, it’s small wonder why Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has garnered an incredible amount of buzz in the build up to its November release.

Set against New York of the Roaring ’20s, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them expands the Harry Potter world in a different direction, chronicling the remarkable journey of Eddie Redmayne’s wizarding pioneer Newt Scamander, who plots course for the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MacUsa) with a briefcase crammed full of wonderful critters.

Exclusive Interview With Before I Disappear Actor/Director Shawn Christensen

19 July 2016 5:07 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

One in a great while, you come across a film that not only entertains you, but one that really resonates with you on a very personal level. When these films come along, it’s important as cinephiles and also just as admirers of personal storytelling, to embrace those films and champion them as much as you can. Last year, while going through what could be easily described as a hellish time in my life, I was skimming through Netflix and I was caught by the title Before I Disappear. Not knowing that it was spawned from the Oscar-winning short film Curfew, or that it was written/directed and starred Shawn Christensen, the vocalist for a band I was quite fond of for quite some time (Stellastarr*), I watched it. Experiencing the film was like those special experiences I wrote about above, ones that touch your soul in very profound ways. »
