22 September 2016 5:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aftermath” star Levi Meaden has joined the cast of “Pacific Rim 2” opposite John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny and Jing Tian, Variety has learned.

The sequel is directed by Steven S. DeKnight with Guillermo del Toro, Jon Jashni, Femi Oguns, Mary Parent, and Thomas Tull producing.

Plot details are vague with Boyega playing the son of the character played by Idris Elba, whose character sacrificed his life in the original film. Meaden is joining the franchise as Ilya, an irreverent and offbeat cadet.

The first “Pacific Rim,” directed by del Toro, starred Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Robert Kazinsky. It was set in the near future with Earth at war with the Kaiju, monsters that emerged from an inter-dimensional portal at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, and grossed $411 million at the worldwide box office.

Syfy Renews Dark Matter and Killjoys!

1 September 2016 1:01 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Syfy has finally found a winning combination for Friday nights.

Today the network announced it will be renewing both Dark Matter and Killjoys for an additional season.

This news come just as the programs are ending the runs of their current seasons.

The Killjoys Season 2 finale will air tomorrow night, and in the words of our reviewer, Hank Otero, "Mind Blown!!!"

It certainly doesn't sound like you're going to want to miss Killjoys Season 2 Episode 10, "How to Kill Friends and Influence People."

Dark Matter will air a double episode on Friday, September 9, and its finale on Friday, September 16.

Dark Matter follows the story of a crew full of amnesiacs who found themselves on a derelict ship in the middle of nowhere. 

With no idea how they got there or who they were, they have worked together calling each other numbered names to survive a voyage filled with betrayal and secrets. »
