John Boyega Readies for War in ‘Pacific Rim 2’ Trailer

John Boyega Readies for War in ‘Pacific Rim 2’ Trailer
The uprising has begun.

The first trailer for “Pacific Rim Uprising” wowed audiences at New York Comic-Con on Friday.

“We were born into a world at war. Between the monsters that destroyed our cities and the monsters we created to stop them, we thought we had sacrificed enough,” John Boyega’s Jake Pentecost narrates in the clip. “But the war we thought we finished is just beginning, and the only thing standing in front of the apocalypse is us.”

From there, the action-packed preview introduces a new generation of Jaeger pilots ready to combat the evolving Kaijus and prevent humanity’s extinction. The sequel picks up 10 years after the Battle of the Breach, and Boyega takes up the legacy of his father (Idris Elba’s character), who sacrificed his life in the first film.

The cast also includes Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona, and Charlie Day.

Firefly to Futurama: the cancelled TV shows you are still angry about

Our writers nominated My So-Called Life and Utopia as the best shows killed before their time. Now, our readers share theirs

After our writers listed the best TV programmes cut down in their prime by foolish and short-sighted network bosses, our readers responded in kind.

Some of these shows lasted a few years, only to be cancelled just as they were beginning to make sense of their various narrative strands.

Police Squad! In Color.

Cancelled after a measly six episodes, it remains an utter joy, not just for its relentless stream of jokes but the absolutely straight face with which it was played by Leslie Nielsen and Alan North.

Great premise. Angels, flesh-eating ghosts and teenage shit. Dark, unsettling and beautifully comic. Leads all excellent and there was something special and sparkly about Daniel Kaluuya from the off.

Then there was Carnivàle which ran for just two seasons 2003-2005 – first episode set a record for an original series – four more series were planned running from post depression America to the after effects of Hiroshima – too strong for the powers that were and so the show was cancelled. Check out Carnivàle and the American grotesque (2015).

Trevor's World of Sport. Fabulously witty writing from Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkins

Outcasts. First serious Sci-Fi attempt on the BBC in god knows how long, featuring a doomed Earth, religious cultists, and unknown alien presence, racism, and many other interesting plot threads and what did they do?

Well they changed the timeslot and even air date every bloody week and then cancelled it due to low viewers.

Almost Human - Karl Urban as an amputee cop with a robot partner (Michael Ealy). Featured Mackenzie Crook as a tech boffin.

Second Chance - Rob Kazinsky as a genetically "reborn" younger version of a murdered corrupt ex-sheriff.

Farscape. Great show that was supposed to run for five series but got binned at the end of series four. Fan complaints got a "miniseries" made to tie up the loose ends but it was a bit crap. A really good, weird, grown-up scfi show. With evil Muppets in it (it was made by Jim Henson's son)..

'The Hour', which BBC cancelled in 2012, had huge potential and an excellent cast. Never understood why it stopped after 2 very good 'seasons' (awful Americanism). Romola Garia, Ben Wilshire, Dominic West....it stood out as outstanding, thoughtful television.

Futurama. Better than the Simpsons and canned at exactly the wrong moment when the audience was about to be allowed the technology to start paying for it

Duncan Jones opens up about the troubled production of Warcraft

Last night, director Duncan Jones and producer Stuart Fenegan presented a Q&A screening of last year’s Warcraft in London’s Leicester Square. Amongst talking about what he would have liked to have done with Warcraft 2, Jones opened up about the troubled production of the movie, comparing the studio politics to Game of Thrones.

“One of the things that was absolute gut-punched was [the narrative],” he said when asked about the battles he lost with the studio. “It’s such an expensive process to make a movie like this, and when you make a decision to exorcise a scene during script stage or anywhere down the line right up towards the end, it’s never coming back. Because it’s too expensive to backtrack though all the animation and effects. People ask me when the directors cut is coming out, and there will never be a director’s cut. Unfortunately. There

Duncan Jones reveals what his story would have been for Warcraft 2

Warning: There are spoilers for Warcraft in this post…

Last night Warcraft director Duncan Jones and producer Stuart Fenegan presented a screening of the movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square. Jones and Fenegan spoke openly about the issues they had making the movie, comparing the studio politics to Game of Thrones at one point, and the director revealed where the story would have gone had Warcraft 2 been green lit (which doesn’t seem likely).

“This first film is about establishing the world, and showing Durotan helping his son escape a dying planet,” Jones told the audience. “So to me the idea over the course of three films would be for Thrall to fulfil that vision of Durotan to create a new homeland for the Orcs. So in [the sequel] it would be the adolescent years of that baby, and anyone who does know their Warcraft stories would

Duncan Jones says no conversations have taken place about Warcraft 2

Last year’s Warcraft wasn’t the hit many were hoping for and despite setting itself up for one, a sequel was in doubt after a disastrous domestic box office run. There were rumours that a sequel could still happen and there was even a story it could be a Chinese-centric release following fantastic box office numbers there, which helped push Warcraft pass $400 million worldwide – making it the biggest video game movie of all-time.

Jones has been very vocal about the difficulties he had working on the movie – even saying 40 minutes had been cut and it died by death of 1,000 cuts – but was willing to work on a sequel. He recently announced a special screening of the movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London with a Q&A afterwards, and a fan asked him on Twitter if any conversations about Warcraft 2 had taken place. To which the director simply wrote,

According to the film’s director, there’s no word on Warcraft 2 – yet

Although it didn’t have a great domestic theatrical run, Duncan JonesWarcraft was a huge success overseas and became the most successful video game movie ever made. We did hear word late last year that a sequel was in development solely designed for the Chinese market, but now the director has thrown some shade on those discussions.

When asked on Twitter if a sequel was getting made, Jones simply replied, “Id love it to happen! Waiting to hear from [the studio].

‘Warcraft’ Review

Stars: Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky, Clancy Brown, Daniel Wu, Ruth Negga, Anna Galvin, Callum Rennie | Written by Duncan Jones, Charles Leavitt | Directed by Duncan Jones

The failure of video game films has been well documented. Although video games have been a major part of pop culture for decades we have yet to see a fully successful crossover hit the big screen. On paper Warcraft seems like the movie that could do it mainly due to the man behind the camera Duncan Jones. With Jones Warcraft has both a talented filmmaker and someone who is well familiar with the source property. This will not be another Super Mario Bros that barely resembles the video game it is depicting. Unfortunately, Warcraft is vapid, dull, and empty – but not completely void of merit. The search for a great video game movie continues.
