Who are these amnesiac boys, rising up each month from a rusting elevator into the middle of a grassy glade?
What is this massive stone maze surrounding them, and why does it change shape each day? How long will some unseen intelligence keep testing them as they try desperately to escape?

In the latest featurette for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, the director delves into the details behind his colossal Jaeger structures. We’re given glimpses of the painstaking work that went into creating the designs for the over 270 foot robots, and ensuring that each one had its own unique identity.
Del Toro explains that while his film will not make any direct references or be a complete homage to the anime culture, he was greatly inspired by it. The origins of specific robots like Cherno Alpha and Gypsy Danger are also revealed in the exclusive interviews and behind the scenes footage.
Pacific Rim focuses on the response from humans to the extraterrestrial attacks threatening the world’s future. The Jaegers, which in German translates to ‘hunters,’ are the massive robots that require two pilots each to combat the alien forces. Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and Charlie Day will be starring. »

Do you ever find yourself wondering what happened after 300 brave soldiers sacrificed themselves on the battlefields of Thermopylae, as was depicted in the modern-day graphic-novel film 300? Well, Warner Bros.’ new film 300: Rise of an Empire hopes to further explore the impact of that brave stand, and the studio just dropped the first trailer, which we’re sharing with you below: Zack Snyder doesn’t direct this 300 follow-up – he was far too busy bringing Superman back to life for Man of Steel – but new director Noam Murro certainly takes pages out of Snyder’s stylebook to expand the range of stories being told in Rise of an Empire. In a sense, this clip reminds me of the recent Clash of the Titans reboot and its sequel. If...

More death and destruction await in this first, Spartan-fuelled preview for 300: Rise Of An Empire.
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster 300, this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield – on the sea – as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.
300: Rise Of An Empire pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
The action adventure stars Sullivan Stapleton (“Gangster Squad”) as Themistokles and Eva Green (“Dark Shadows,” “Casino Royale”) as Artemisia. Lena Headey reprises her starring role from 300 as the Spartan Queen, »

The bad news: it's been pushed a whole year until March 2014. The good news is, the new trailer for “300: Rise of an Empire” is here, even if it's now nine months early (maybe everyone figured, "hell, it's done!"). Don't look for many original players (though a few are back). Zack Snyder's not directing (though he is producing), Gerard Butler and all those dudes bit it at the end of the first film. Instead you've got filmmaker Noam Murro, the indie director behind 2008's "Smart People," who must have put together some impressive promo reel to convince Warner Bros. he could go from that tiny, talky indie to this would-be tentpole. There aren't a lot of stars either. Sullivan Stapleton (“Gangster Squad”) plays Themistokles and Eva Green (“Dark Shadows,” “Casino Royale”) plays the villaness Artemisia. Lena Headey reprises her starring role from “300” as the Spartan Queen, Gorgo; Hans Matheson »

Trevor Hogg chats with Primetime Emmy-winner Everett Burrell about his career, the visual effects industry and working for Look Effects...
Ray Harryhausen and Everett Burrell“Growing up my dad was a musician and my mom was artist,” recalls Everett Burrell who drew and painted as a child. “My little kids draw and paint now, and they’re only three and two. It’s in the blood.” A fascination with special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen (Clash of the Titans) expanded into a business venture with John Vulich (Lost Boys). “I was into creature effects and props when I was younger. I had a company called Optic Nerve Studios where I did zombies and creatures. I started playing with the computer in 1989 and I’ve loved it ever since. I loved the control and flexibility but I still respect effects. My heart is in the hands on stuff.” The interest in the »
If you didn't think today's movie marketing contains many spoilers have a look at this comment (excuse the misspellings) left on the latest Pacific Rim TV spot. This Trailer preety much confirms the following: Cherno alpha, Crymson Typhon, and Coyote Tango get destroyed during the battle of Hong Kong (the big climatic battle where all 5 jaegers are deployed). Im almost certain the scene where Jipsy and Striker are in the ocean is post Hk battle, and there going onc a final assault against the Portal to stop further Kaijus from crossing again. Darklarik3 on YouTube For someone like Darklarik3, who has clearly paid attention to a lot of the film's marketing, it would seem the only surprises the film would have left to offer would be the survival of Cherno alpha, Crymson Typhon and/or Coyote Tango before the Hong Kong battle where all the Jaegers get all whatnot on »

This is the latest poster for 300: Rise of an Empire, and it features a wave of blood. If you've seen the first movie, then you know there's going to be a lot of blood spilt in battle.
The movie is being directed by Noam Murro from a screenplay written by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad. It's based on the graphic novel Xerxes, by Frank Miller. The first film was so badass. It's my motivational workout movie. I hope this sequel ends up being just as awesome.
It's is set to be released on August 2nd, 2013 and here's the synopsis:

We've been inundated with video game news today as Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo kicked off this year's E3 by unveiling their latest wares - including the long-awaited Xbox One and PlayStation 4 - but tucked away among all the next-gen excitement is some news about two upcoming Ubisoft / Tom Clancy movie adaptations in Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell.
First up comes a report from Variety which suggests that Michael Bay has signed on to develop Ghost Recon for Warner Bros. through his Platinum Dunes production company, with the Transformers 4 helmer apparently open to directing the adaptation of the best-selling third person shooter series which has shifted over 24 million units since debuting back in 2001.
"These guys don’t belong to any specific organization," said Jean Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, regarding the unit of U.S. Special Forces at the centre of Ghost Recon. "They’re in the field where the U. »

Mything in action Red Dragon and Rush Hour director Brett Ratner has begun production on his intriguing historical action film Hercules: The Thracian Wars. Starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as the titular demi-god, it sounds like Clash Of The Titans meets The Expendables- which could be great…or tragically awful. What is beyond doubt is the quality of the film’s cast. »
Fans of Ray Harryhausen came to pay their respects to the filmmaking titan at last night’s Day 1 of American Cinematheque’s tribute to the stop-motion wizard. At the classic, old-time Aero Theater in Santa Monica, people came far and wide to get a double dose of Sinbad.
Before the screening, I perused the wonderful collection of Ray Harryhausen’s very own art, showcasing many original signed copies, featuring Sinbad, Jason, Ymir, centaurs, and cyclops… all of Harryhausen’s movie monsters and heroes that made it to the big screen with his vivid imagination. The collection came courtesy of the great Art Kandy, an organization that has all the artwork up for sale, ranging from $75 to $2,100. You can check some of the pieces in the gallery below.
For me, this was a unique experience. I had never seen a Ray Harryhausen film projected on the big screen, limited to my »

We're all aware that many people in Hollywood share an uncanny resemblance. We're not about to rattle off some tired list of celebrity twins. Instead, we take things up a notch with Hollywood Doppelgänger Math, a new series from GeekTyrant that is sure to change the way you look at actors and the roles they play. To make the cut, a person has to look like the sum of at least two other people. For this first collection, we focused on equations that resulted in young and/or up-and-coming actors. We have also included a list of other connections the actors share.
All three have played secondary love interests in popular sitcoms; Amy Adams in The Office, Alison Brie in Community, and Alexandra Daddario in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Both Adams and Brie have played sisters to characters portrayed by Emily Blunt; Adams in Sunshine Cleaners and Brie in The Five-Year Engagement. »

When we lost Ray Harryhausen on May 7th, we could at least find comfort in all the indelible and immortal works of imagination that he left behind, and all the disciples that he created through his love of dinosaurs, stop-motion and film. To celebrate and honor his memory, American Cinematheque, the esteemed non-profit film organization, is putting together a tribute of some of his best films. The event will take place from Thursday June 6th to Saturday June 15th, at the Aero Theater at 1328 Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, CA, with a bevy of double feature screenings within that period of time.
Films include The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad, Jason & The Argonauts, Clash Of The Titans, Mysterious Island and so much more. I’ve been to American Cinematheque screenings before, and they’re sure to be glorious prints of Harryhausen’s master craft. Here’s the press release from American »

Louis Leterrier’s first film since Clash Of The Titans plays as a fun but shallow heist movie where magic meets charitable crime and the house always wins. Now You See Me will surely remind viewers of the Ocean’s Eleven franchise, where the criminals are so talented they’re admirable, and one cannot help but root for the bad guys (who are really just good guys with a lot to prove). However Leterrier’s sixth feature film relies so heavily on the flashiness of a great show that the characters become props whose motives and storylines disappear amidst all the smoke and mirrors »
Has Will Smith hit the lowest point of his career? Certainly Wild Wild West was easily his most embarrassing low-point, but going off figures and reputation alone, his new movie After Earth, sold completely on the Smith family name and developed from the ground-up by arguably the biggest movie star on the planet, has turned out to be his worst performing summer outing of all time.
After Earth has slumped in its opening weekend in the Us – taking just $26.5 million since it opened on Thursday night. That’s only enough for third place on the weekend charts behind Fast And Furious 6 ($34 million) and Lionsgate’s surprise performer Now You See Me ($28 million).
Smith’s first original blockbuster since he took a three and a half year break away from our screens (his actual return last summer with Men In Black 3 collected a huge $624 million worldwide, but repeating an old »
