The fourth episode of Amazon's The Man in the High Castle transitions us to the meat of the season, but it does so just slowly enough to frustrate. Why we didn't get here earlier? "Revelations" is about people getting in the way of best-laid plans: Ed (DJ Qualls) tries to stop Frank (Rupert Evans) from his meeting with destiny, while Joe (Luke Kleintank) and Juliana (Alexa Davalos) complicate each other's trajectories.As most of these episodes do, "Revelations" picks up immediately where the last one left off. The Marshal (Burn Gorman) is trailing Juliana through Canon City. The chase scene uses many tools of the tense thriller: shadows, creepy music, and creaking floors. How will this end? She can't die, of course. And the Marshal can't either: he's too strong a character, played by too strong an actor. Joe cracks the Marshal over the head, then they run off to »

Despite the arrival of new menacing villain, played by Torchwood's Burn Gorman, the third episode of Amazon's The Man in the High Castle is a bit of a letdown after the tense pace of first two chapters. It's still good television, especially when compared to other Amazon shows like Bosch and Hand of God, but there's reason to worry about the pacing here. The characters are beginning to feel stuck in a narrative rut.As The Man in the High Castle has done before, "The Illustrated" picks up immediately after the end of the last episode. Juliana (Alexa Davalos) had to push Origami Man (formerly referred to as Bible Man in these recaps, but the characters started using this name, so we'll comply) off the dam, and she's rattled by his death. Joe (Luke Kleintank) tries to comfort her, telling her how he once had to kill somebody too. »

Crimson Peak (2016) Film Review, a movie directed by Guillermo del Toro, and starring Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Jim Beaver, Charlie Hunnam, and Burn Gorman. Crimson Peak has a few well designed angles, not just within the darkly ornate Victorian set dressing and costuming, but akin to the story which I’m equating with a tomato that has a few spots […] »

Crimson Peak, 2015.
Directed by Guillermo del Toro
In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers.
I ain’t ‘fraid no ghost. If there’s something strange in your neighbourhood, who are you going to call? Why, Guillermo del Toro of course. After many ghost stories over recent times that have been more inclined to include scares with mobile phones and found footage, it’s about time a new ghostly story found its way onto the screen. Is Crimson Peak the film to bring back the creeps? Not quite.
From its opening salvo in a brisk, »

Despite the rumours abound that Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures were planning a Shared Kaiju Universe with King Kong, Godzilla and Pacific Rim, fans of the monster v robots film were disappointed when it was announced Pacific Rim 2 was on indefinite hold. One person still holding out hope, however, is director Guillermo del Toro.
“We are still turning in a screenplay and a budget in three weeks,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “As far as I’m concerned, it’s not gone. We’re still on it. It moved further.”
However, del Toro notes that he could direct another movie while he waits for progress to be made on Pacific Rim 2.

Mori told Digital Spy that she has been approached about playing Tosh again in Big Finish's series of audio dramas.
"I miss Torchwood so much," she admitted. "On Twitter, there's been a lot of fans saying, 'Bring it back!' - and it would be so nice to do something.
"I know there's a radio thing happening and they've talked to me about it as well, so hopefully that'll happen in due course."
It's been seven years since Tosh - and her unrequited love interest Owen (Burn Gorman) - were killed off in the gut-wrenching episode 'Exit Wounds'. But if you're still not over it, don't worry - neither is Naoko.
"Still to this day, just thinking about it makes me feel very sad," she said. "That was a really tough scene. »
In spite of Universal Pictures and Legendary setting an August 4, 2017 release date for Pacific Rim 2, The Hollywood Reporter cites Legendary sources in claiming that the project has been delayed indefinitely.
A shelving of the science fiction franchise could ultimately come down to budgetary concerns from Universal and Legendary.
The original movie made more than $411 million worldwide, but did so on a steep $190 million budget. A sequel would presumably cost even more.
Franchise star Charlie Hunnam had been speaking about his anxiousness over the sequel as recently as late July.
"I think world creation and monster creation and all of that stuff is exciting as a secondary element of storytelling," he said. »
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom has been “delayed indefinitely” after the creature feature faced a threat worse than any Kaiju in history: Hollywood red tape.
Reports first surfaced early last week when outlets claimed that Guillermo del Toro’s creature feature had been pushed from its original 2017 release window, though today’s scathing report appears much more damaging, with THR indicating that the sequel may be canned altogether. In an exhaustive piece, the outlet details the minutia of Legendary’s fraught partnership with both Warner Bros. and del Toro, which has seemingly been the colossal roadblock preventing Earth’s mightiest Jaegers from cancelling another apocalypse.

It was believed that director Guillermo del Toro will start work on his long-awaited sequel Pacific Rim 2 after he puts the finishing touches on his haunted house thriller Crimson Peak, which is set for release on October 16. Last week, an unconfirmed report revealed that Warner Bros. is delaying Pacific Rim 2, pushing production back from a fall 2015 start to sometime in 2016. As it turns out, that report was only half-true, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that the sequel has been delayed indefinitely, and may even be canceled entirely.
The original Pacific Rim only made $101.8 million at the domestic box office, but performed much better internationally, taking in $309.2 million for a worldwide tally of $411 million. Unfortunately, the movie cost a whopping $190 million, and it is believed that the original movie's cost lead to uncertainty about the sequel at Legendary. Pacific Rim did "exceptional" business in China, where Legendary is heavily invested, but »

A new rumor over at Latino Review suggests that the upcoming "Pacific Rim" sequel has delayed its proposed start of production.
Originally slated to begin shooting in November in Toronto this year, the site's inside sources claim that filming on "Pacific Rim: Maelstrom" has now been pushed back into 2016 and it's unclear which specific month it might resume.
The reason for the delay is also unknown at present, but it is long enough it could well impact the movie's release date which is currently set for August 4th 2017. Potentially this pushes back the movie until late 2017/early 2018.
The site contacted Legendary Pictures for a comment and the studio said they were not allowed to speak about it at the moment.

Here's a bit of disturbing news coming out of Burbank, California tonight. Insiders at Warner Bros. are claiming that Pacific Rim 2 has been delayed. Guillermo del Toro has promised in many interviews over the course of this past year that shooting would definitely start in fall 2015. Now, it doesn't look like things will get underway on the sequel until sometime in 2016.
Spies working exclusively for Latino Review were the first to divulge this news. Pacific Rim 2 was all set to start shooting this November in Toronto. Guillermo del Toro was set to make the sequel his top priority once he finished all promotional work on his upcoming haunted house thriller Crimson Peak. But now, those plans have reportedly changed. Believed to be titled Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, all shooting on the project is being delayed until sometime in 2016, though an official start date is not given.
Warner Bros. has already handed »
You'll be forgiven if your mind is a little hazy on who survived the destruction in Pacific Rim. The movie was one giant roller coast ride of giant monsters fighting enormous human-controlled Jaegers. And there were a lot of casualties. Because of the high body count, a lot of actors are going to be out of a job when Pacific Rim 2 begins shooting this fall. But just because this sequel will focus more on the giant Kaiju beasts at the heart of its core doesn't mean we won't see a few familiar faces.
The Television Critics Association press tour is continuing to hum along this weekend, and during The Strain panel, Collider was able to catch up with Pacific Rim 2 director Guillermo del Toro.

Returning to lead the film will be Charlie Hunnam, although by the sounds of it, he's not entirely happy with how the first movie turned out.
Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, he said that "I think world creation and monster creation and all of that stuff is exciting as a secondary element of storytelling. When it becomes more important than storytelling, I get very nervous, and you sort of lose me a little bit. Although we tried very hard on Pacific Rim to marry those two elements, I do feel like ultimately it got weighed heavier on the side of spectacle »
Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" sequel is reportedly going by either the code name or subtitle of "Maelstrom," and is currently tipped for a start of filming date in November in Toronto. Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman are expected to be back in the movie which picks up a few years after the events of the first. [Source: Bmd]
