Actor John Boyega broke through to the mainstream with his starring role as the stormtrooper-turned-resistance-fighter in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and now he’s got a whole host of films lined up, including “Pacific Rim: Uprising, a sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film.

I am Pentecost

The original “Pacific Rim” follows the last days of a war between Earth and the Kaiju, colossal monsters from an interdimensional portal. The film was a critical and commercial success upon release, eventually becoming del Toro’s most successful film to date. In the sequel, Boyega will star as Jake Pentecost, »

The movie, co-written by DeLonge and Ben Kull, centers on a rebellious group of San Diego skateboarders, who take it upon themselves to investigate extreme paranormal activity around town, only to embark on an adventure that they could have never imagined.
“I grew up in Southern California as a disaffected young skateboarder who broke the occasional law or five, and I was always dreaming about the world around me, obsessively looking for the more unusual and imaginative experiences that life has to offer,” the former Blink singer and guitarist told THR. “That’s the inspiration behind ‘Strange Times,’ which is about the tribe of broken youth and the restless spirit that inspired me to form Blink-182 and seek out adventure.”
The project is based on the musician’s “Strange Times” franchise, »

Watching the trailer for Anne Hamilton's feature film debut brought back memories of Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, not in setting or story or perhaps even theme but in its approach to how a young girl deals with a traumatic event.
When she discovers a man being held in a silo, her world is thrown into a tailspin and she finds herself trying to piece together what the adults aren't telling her. It's here the fantastical elements kick in.
I'm not certain if American Fable is actually a horror movie but the trailer features some unsettling images and there's a sense of dread throughout which is really appealing.

Guillermo del Toro has never been shy about exploring the truly weird in his films, from a magical faun in Pan's Labyrinth to the Corman-inspired haunted house in Crimson Peak. His next film, The Shape Of Water, sounds like the auteur's strangest film yet.
Frequent del Toro collaborator Doug Jones, who played Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movies and The Pale Man in Pan's Labyrinth (shudder), talked to Collider about the upcoming movie, sharing a few details about the character he plays and the plot of the film. Jones should feel right at home in The Shape of Water, as he's once again playing a fish man. »

Doug Jones, who has been a del Toro staple for decades (he plays the Pale Man and the Faun in Pan's Labyrinth and Abe Sapien in Hellboy and its sequel -- pictured above), provided Collider with details on his role in The Shape of Water and the movie's premise. Turns out, he's playing another aquatic character, like Abe. It’s a 1963 drama—it’s not a sci-fi...

Back in August, Fox Searchlight Pictures announced that production started on director Guillermo del Toro's new film The Shape of Water, although a release date has still not been set at this time. The announcement confirmed that the cast will include Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine, Happy Go-Lucky), Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, 99 Homes), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Olive Kitteridge), Doug Jones (Crimson Peak, Hellboy), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man) and Octavia Spencer (The Help, Gifted). Fans haven't been given much to go on, in terms of plot details, until now, thanks to star Doug Jones.
The August report only described the story as an "other-worldly story", set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963, described as a "mysterious and magical journey." With the inclusion of Doug Jones, who has played iconic monsters for Guillermo del Toro such as Abe Sapien in Hellboy and Fauno in Pan's Labyrinth, many »
