It's time to cancel the Apocalypse as Warner Bros. releases the first full trailer for Guillermo del Toro's love letter to Japanese kaiju cinema, Pacific Rim. Check it out after the official synopsis...
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes--a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)--who are teamed to drive a legendary but »

Hannibal, Season 1, Episode 8: “Fromage”
Directed by Tim Hunter
Airs Thursdays at 10pm Est on NBC
Breaking Bad; Boardwalk Empire; Mad Men, Justified; Sons Of Anarchy; Louie; Girls; Shameless, The Americans; Game of Thrones; The number of new quality TV series keeps growing, and we can now add Hannibal to that list.
Over the past 30 years, television has undergone vast improvement. The wave of high-quality niche series may have started as early as the 1980s with Miami Vice, and later with the success of Twin Peaks in the 90′s, but it was only recently that several of these intelligent niche productions have been leading the pack with the highest ratings. Back in the days, a network’s goal was to equally please as many viewers as possible. Now the aim is to please relatively fewer viewers but keep them coming back each and every week. »
It may not go down all that well in the world of Michael Bay, but Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim is fast shaping up as the Transformers it's Ok to like. A new extended trailer for the hugely hyped robots v aliens smackdown dropped earlier this week, confirming the Mexican film-maker's determination to show that enormous warring monstrosities can be a thing of surprising beauty.
Co-written by Del Toro himself, the latest science-fiction wannabe blockbuster to hit the big screen in 2013 is being pitched as a film which combines classy atmospheric eye candy with all the furious action one might expect from one of Bay's tortuous explosion-fests. "What we went for is a very, very romantic look," Del Toro told »

What do you do when monsters rise from the sea? You marry man and machine and unleash the robots, of course! The official main trailer for Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro's upcoming sci-fi action thriller, was released today and—as previous glimpses of the impossibly high-tech film have already promised—it looks to make for a rip-roaring time at the multiplex this summer. Sons of Anarchy hunk Charlie Hunnam stars as one-half of an attached-at-the-mind duo charged with piloting the massive machines built to take on the kaiju invaders from beneath the Pacific and "cancel the apocalypse." Rinko Kikuchi plays Hunnam's partner and Charlie Day, Idris Elba and Ron »
Who’s ready for some giant robots fighting giant monsters? If the answer is “me!” then you’re in luck – we’ve got the newest trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim (or as I like to call it, Sons of Anarchy: Monster Edition since it has both Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman in the cast) ready for your consideration. The new clip looks amazing. We learn more about how the Kaiju launched their attack on humanity (started in San Francisco, jumped around the globe from there) and how the Jaeger program works (two pilots, shared memories and all). This looks exactly like what we’d expect from del Toro: it’s larger than life, gorgeously shot, full of interesting visuals, and if this clip is accurate, is filled with the kind of...

Pacific Rim Trailer: Jaegers fight Kaiju to save humankind from extinction — but should they bother? Michael Bay’s Transformers 5 (or 6 or 7, sorry, lost count) has a new trailer — er … scratch that. Let me start again: Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim has a new trailer. Before you check it out, remember that every similarity between del Toro’s Pacific Rim and Bay’s Transformers movies (and Matt Reeves’ Cloverfield and Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds and Peter Berg’s Battleship and Gareth Edwards’ upcoming Godzilla remake and TV’s The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and …) is mere coincidence. After all, the Pacific Rim screenplay (credited to del Toro and Travis Beacham) is based on an "original story" — aka film treatment — penned by Beacham. Now, check out the Pacific Rim trailer below.

Fanboy fave Guillermo del Toro embarks on his biggest project to date, the filmed-in-Toronto aliens and robots epic Pacific Rim that finds creatures from beyond visiting Earth not from the stars but from below, forcing humans to get creative to battle the intruders.
In del Toro's script, co-written by Travis Beacham (Clash of the Titans), that means massive robots piloted by humans are used as the first line of defence in the action film starring two Brits famous for their TV work, Idris Elba ("The Wire") and Charlie Hunnam ("Sons of Anarchy," "Freaks and Geeks") with Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi (Brothers Bloom) rounding out the cast.
So besides explosions, this love letter to kaiju films like Godzilla features futuristic monsters fighting man-made ones where the connection between humans and machines becomes ever closer as this new technology soon becomes the best hope at saving humanity. Or as Elba puts it, »

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro presented never-before-seen footage and the new trailer from his highly anticipated sci-fi adventure “Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim” today at Ncm Media Networks’ “The Bigger Picture” Cinema Upfront Event at New York City’s AMC Loews Lincoln Square movie theater.
As a special guest of the country’s top national cinema network, he previewed a new trailer of the film and then spoke to a standing-room only crowd of over 700 advertising and media industry professionals, highlighting why the movie theater experience is so important for audiences and blockbuster films like Pacific Rim.
Below are highlights from his remarks:
“I think that it is very important for us to remember why we go to the theater – what makes the experience memorable. I think that one of the reasons why we all are still making movies and showing movies is because we expect new generations »

Could July 12th hurry up already? Ever since that footage at Comic-Con last year, we've been filled with the same kind of geeky giddiness for "Pacific Rim" that we can imagine Guillermo del Toro has been spreading all over edit bays while assembling what could very likely be an action masterpiece.
Warner Bros. has unleashed the full trailer for "Pac Rim" (hey, if that store in the mall can be abbreviated to "Pac Sun"...) today and it's filled with exactly what we wanted to see: big Shogun Warrior style robots piloted by a biker from Samcro and other soldiers fighting Godzilla style monsters. Charlie Hunnam, aka Jax Teller from "Sons of Anarchy" (and almost Thor in the Marvel movies) gets the exposition out of the way in a tasty voice over, setting up the premise for what this movie is all about: a future where humans operate huge robots to battle giant alien monsters. »

Forget "go big or go home." Visionary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro raises the stakes to "Go big or go extinct" for his upcoming summer smash Pacific Rim. Maybe you know this ambitious science-fiction adventure involves giant extraterrestrial beasts waging war against gargantuan robots, and that was enough to get you pumped. Maybe del Toro's name alone was enough based on fond memories of Hellboy or Pan's Labyrinth. If not, perhaps a cast that includes Prometheus' Idris Elba, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia's Charlie Day, Star Trek's Clifton Collins Jr., Hellboy's Ron Perlman, Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam, and The Brothers Bloom's Rinko Kikuchi, was tantalizing enough to earn this release a spot on your summer musts list. But if you actually need a breakdown of how this movie's world works, the latest trailer is kind enough to break it down. Pacific Rim is set »
In a summer with a fair few dicey bets, "Pacific Rim" might be one of the riskier ones. While the "Transformers' comparisons are easy, this is an original concept, with some heady sci-fi ideas at work, and a distinct lack of big names (the film's led by "Sons of Anarchy" lead Charlie Hunnam, "Babel"'s Rinko Kikuchi and "Horrible Bosses"' "Charlie Day, leaving Idris Elba arguably the most familiar face involved. And while he's beloved by the geek crowd, director Guillermo Del Toro has never been a big commercial name. So a bit of an uphill battle in the face of better-known rival movies like "Iron Man 3," "Fast & Furious 6" and "The Wolverine." And it doesn't help that the marketing campaign, in its early stages, was a bit faltering, with unfinished effects, and a slightly uncertain sense of exactly what it was selling. But things have been improving over time, »

Chicago – “Frankie Go Boom” is a comedy about deplorable people who commit heartless acts and expect us to laugh at them. It casts the hugely lovable Chris O’Dowd as the most loathsome schlub ever to materialize on the big screen since Josh Gad’s wretched comic relief in “Love and Other Drugs.” And it puts Ron Perlman in drag but fails to give him a single laugh-worthy line. What a misfire.
I’m sure there’s a biting satire that could be made about ordinary folk driven to near suicide after a circumstantial humiliation goes viral, thanks to a well-placed camera. Yet any laughs to be had can only be spawned from characters that at least partially resemble relatable human beings. Aside from its two sympathetic would-be lovebirds, “Frankie Go Boom” is populated entirely by freaks. Narcissistic freaks. Sex-crazed freaks. Christian freaks. And freaks who have sex changes. They »

These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?

From Legendary Pictures ("Man Of Steel") "Crimson Peak" will star Emma Stone ("The Amazing Spider-Man 2"), Charlie Hunnam ("Sons Of Anarchy"), Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain ("The Hurt Locker") and Benedict Cumberbatch ("Star Trek Into Darkness").
"It will allow me to play with the conventions of the genre I know and love, and at the same time subvert the old rules...I've always tried to make big-sized horror movies like the ones I grew up watching. Films like 'The Omen', 'The Exorcist' and 'The Shining'...

Ricky Gervais feels the same way about the American version of "The Office" as I do A steaming pile of 'meh.' He also has a lot in common with showrunner Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy), he loves to bandy the word "c*nt" about with great artistic flourish. As Ricky Gervais.s career has continued to grow, so have doubts about his status as an everyman. First known for his ability to lay bare the self-humiliation in everyday life, Gervais has since revealed his more abrasive side--particularly as host of The Golden Globes. In the June Comedy Issue of GQ, Chris Heath sits down with the creator of the beloved TV series The Office (the American series concludes this week) to »

If you train your ears well enough, you should be able to hear the ticking clock counting down the time Dexter Morgan has left in his freedom. The final season of Dexter is coming next month and the big question is: how will things end for the vigilante serial killer? Will he sail off into the sunset, once again fooling the police into thinking he’s just a blood spatter analyst and nothing more, or will his time run out and his crimes exposed for the world to see. I’m personally rooting for an ending where Dexter finds himself behind bars and the latest casting news has me jumping for joy. I just might get what I want.

Cinelinx rumbles with the Frankie Go Boom Blu-ray!
Frank (Charlie Hunnam) has his world turned upside down when his loser brother Bruce (Chris O'Dowd) puts a video of his one night stand online. Also stars Lizzy Caplan, Chris Noth, Ron Perlman, and a pig.
Written and Directed by: Jordan Roberts
Frankie Go Boom boasts a pretty talented cast: Sons of Anarchy stars Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman, as well as Lizzy Caplan, Chris O'Dowd, and Chris Noth. Unfortunately, the film relies less on the characters or genuine humor for laughs, and more on uncomfortable situations and humiliation. With only a handful of exceptions, it doesn't work. It's really too bad, because there is a potentially enjoyable, quirky little comedy here. It is just buried under a number of groan-worthy scenes that make you wonder what director/screenwriter Jordan Roberts was thinking.
Frankie (Charlie Hunnam) is actually »
