Charlie Hunnam Hits the Gym After Treating Fans to a Sexy Comic-Con Appearance

12 hours ago | | See recent Popsugar news »

Charlie Hunnam was spotted running errands in La on Thursday, one of which included stopping by the gym for a workout. The former Sons of Anarchy star made his way down the street in a white t-shirt and jeans and showed off his good looks (and muscles) while holding on to a black tote bag. Just last weekend, Charlie attended Comic-Con in San Diego to promote his upcoming film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and also opened up about why he won't be joining Idris Elba and John Boyega for Pacific Rim 2, saying, "By the time they got their schedule fully realized then I wasn't available. But I think they're onto something very exciting." »

Why Charlie Hunnam Not starring in 'Pacific Rim 2' is a good thing

27 July 2016 11:43 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Charlie Hunnam is the lead in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur, but he won't be returning to the franchise that made him a movie star. Pacific Rim 2 is moving on without Raleigh Becket. It looks like Mako will have to find someone else to become drift compatible with... Pacific Rim 2 has a release date of February 23, 2018 but isn't being directed by Guillermo del Toro either if you recall. Steven S. DeKnight is taking over duties with del Toro's blessing and guidance. Speaking to Yahoo at Comic-Con over the weekend Hunnam broke the news officially: “I’m very excited about it. I’m glad they’re making it. I think it's going to be great. I read an early draft of what they're doing. There was one incarnation of this sequel that involved me heavily but I was unavailable. They have a very definite schedule that they have to film because »

King Arthur wants to be cool but is he?

26 July 2016 6:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective. Ah, Camelot! A time for GoPro cameras and quick cut editing, when hip meta storytelling was in vogue and well timed sarcasm was the bantering style of the day. Guy Ritchie has brought his trendy brand of filmmaking to the King Arthur legend. Ugh.  Sometimes you have to let a thing be a thing. Hold on. Record scratch. Let's me explain that. (I can do to this too, Guy Ritchie!) Take Captain America. Not a cool character, but so what? It was writer Mark Waid's comic book run that sold me on him. What I enjoyed was that Mark Waid didn't try to make the character something that he wasn't. He didn't make Captain America talk like a Quentin Tarantino character. He didn't shim sham us with non-linear storytelling tricks. »

Charlie Hunnam Not Returning to ‘Pacific Rim’ Sequel, Because of ‘Politics’ vs. ‘Art’

26 July 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film “Pacific Rim” follows washed-up soldier Raleigh Becket, played by Charlie Hunnam, who is pulled out of retirement to team up with a young rookie for one last-ditch attempt to defeat the Kaiju, colossal alien monsters from an interdimensional realm that are at war with Earth. Though a sequel to the commercially and critically successful monster film is in the works, Hunnam will not be returning to the series. In an interview with Yahoo at Comic-Con, Hunnam explained that he was involved in a very early version of the sequel, but couldn’t swing it because of a scheduling conflict and cited the “non-creative” decisions that allow certain choices to be made.

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.

Newswire: Now that he’s King Arthur, Charlie Hunnam won’t be back for Pacific Rim 2

26 July 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

After Sons Of Anarchy wrapped, Charlie Hunnam went from Prince Hamlet stand-in to King Arthur portrayer for Guy Ritchie. Along with playing that legendary warrior and ruler, Hunnam’s recently wrapped James Gray’s The Lost City Of Z, which is still slated for release later this year. Between replacing Benedict Cumberbatch in The Lost City and helping give King Arthur a flashy makeover, it’s understandable that Hunnam would have very little time to consider a return trip to the Pacific Rim movies, which have had a little trouble becoming a franchise.

But the stop-and-start fraught sequel is now reportedly, finally underway at Legendary, though without Guillermo del Toro at the helm. (“Where’s the fun in that?” we all mutter.) Unfortunately, all his royal and explorer duties have left Hunnam without any time to step back into a Jaeger for more rock ’em, sock ’em action. While promoting »

Charlie Hunnam Not Returning For Pacific Rim 2

26 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

At Sdcc, Charlie Hunnam spoke to Yahoo! Movies to promote Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, but the former Sons of Anarchy star was also asked whether he'd be joining John Boyega for the follow up to Pacific Rim.  Apparently, we won't be seeing an appearance from Raleigh Beckett even though he saved the day and ended the Kaiju War.  Hunnam's absence also calls into question whether the other lead from the first film, Rinko Kikuchi, will be returning?  With Boyega playing the son of Idris Ebla's Stacker Pentecost, it would stand to reason that an appearance from Stacker's adopted daughter would be warranted.  Plus, fans from the first film will be dying to know whether Mako and Raleigh made it as a couple!    For further details on the project, head over to our sister site, »

Pacific Rim 2 won't feature Charlie Hunnam

Charlie Hunnam confirms that scheduling conflicts have kept him out of Pacific Rim: Maelstrom...

This story first appeared at Den Of Geek Us.

Pacific Rim: Maelstrom will be storming onto the big screen next year, but without its original Jaeger pilot. It wasn’t that behemoth alien sea monsters scared Charlie Hunnam off or devoured his character. He just has the most common of movie issues: a scheduling conflict. 

Hunnam, who wields the Excalibur as the warrior-king of legend in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, joined the San Diego Comic-Con panel on his upcoming show when Yahoo! asked him about the second Pacific Rim film. 

"I'm very excited about it!” the former Raleigh Becket replied, though he won’t be reprising his role in Steven S DeKnight’s sequel from the deep.

“I'm glad they're making it. I think it's going to be great. »

Comic-Con went down in San Diego over the weekend, and along with revealing juicy new details about a lot of TV's hit shows as well as upcoming movies, it also gifted the world with a lot of eye candy moments. While things like Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, this American Horror Story hint, and the cast of Game of Thrones dishing on the Iron Throne are all still blowing our minds, we couldn't help but notice all of the major stars that came out to smolder on the red carpet, at parties, and while speaking on panels.

Charlie Hunnam Rules Himself Out Of Pacific Rim 2

25 July 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he may have been attached to an early version of Pacific Rim 2 – perhaps when the sequel was tethered with the subtitle Maelstrom – Charlie Hunnam has officially ruled himself out of Steven S. DeKnight’s 2018 creature feature.

Chatting with Yahoo Movies regarding his title role in Guy Ritchie’s long-awaited King Arthur reboot (see the inspired Comic-Con trailer here), the Sons of Anarchy stalwart revealed that Raleigh Becket won’t feature in Legendary and Universal Pictures’ monstrous sequel after all.

Even throughout Pacific Rim 2‘s rocky foray into pre-production – at a time when Universal placed the follow-up on ice indefinitely – many assumed that the sequel would pick up the adventures of Beckett and Mako Mori (played by Rinko Kikuchi) as the squared off against a new wave of Kaiju. Then again, the addition of John Boyega cast doubt over that proposed narrative arc, now that The Force Awakens breakout is »

Charlie Hunnam Will Not Be Back For Pacific Rim Sequel

25 July 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While at this year's San Diego Comic-Con promoting King Arthur, actor Charlie Hunnam confirmed he will not be returning in the upcoming Pacific Rim sequel, despite Guillermo del Toro’s recent assurance that a lot of actors from the first film would be back.

Yahoo! Movies caught up with Hunnam and told them that he was actually approached to reprise his role as hero Raleigh Becket but was was forced to exit the production at an early stage due to scheduling conflicts.

“I’m very excited about it. I’m glad they’re making it. “I think it’s going to be great…There was one incarnation of this sequel that involved me heavily, but I was unavailable…Sometimes, non-creative decisions will dictate how something unfolds, which seems bass-ackwards, in the fact that we’re making art – or, at least, aspiring to make art.

Comic-Con 2016: Charlie Hunnam Confirms that He Will Not Star in Pacific Rim 2

25 July 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Other than the casting of John Boyega, official news on who will appear in Pacific Rim 2 has been slim. Of particular interest has been whether or not the cast members from the first film will reprise their roles in the sequel, and while at Comic-Con to promote his new film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Charlie Hunnam confirmed that he will not return to play Raleigh Becket.

Hunnam talked with Yahoo! at Comic-Con about Pacific Rim 2 and expressed his excitement for the film while also discussing why he couldn’t be a part of it:

“I read an early draft of what they’re doing. There was one incarnation of this sequel that involved me heavily, but I was unavailable. They have a very definite schedule that they have to film because of the politics and business surrounding filmmaking.”

This year's San Diego Comic-Con brought a treasure trove of trailers for some of the upcoming year's most buzzworthy movies, from superhero movies and franchise tentpole blockbusters to, curiously enough, Oliver Stone's upcoming Edward Snowden biopic.
