The humans of the new Pacific Rim movie are good and all but let's talk these mechs that they are piloting because let's face it, I like the Jaegers better than humans.
Everyone is building up excitement for the upcoming sequel to the Pacific Rim Pacific Rim Uprising. Which the official trailer was shown at Nycc 2017 and you can watch that here.We’re starting to get more detail about the characters Mako, Jake, and Lambert. Jake Pentacost apparently was a Jaeger pilot who left the program abandoning his copilot Major Nate Lambert who has some animosity against Jake for that. Jake has apparently in his time away been a bit of a criminal selling weapons on the black market. He never felt he was living up to his father Stacker Pentacost’s expectations and had jealousy towards his adopted sister Mako who has now become a trainer for the modern day Jaeger pilots. »

In the wake of the near-universally negative reviews for Netflix’s latest Marvel show, Iron Fist star Finn Jones has spoken out about the critical backlash to the new series this past weekend, stating that “these shows are not made for critics, they are first and foremost made for the fans.”

Ricky Church reviews Transformers Annual 2017…
Ghost Stories! Optimus Prime returns to Cybertron—only to be confronted by his rival for the Matrix, Pyra Magna! As Pyra’s origin—before she was part of Victorion—is finally revealed, Optimus relives his own past—the first time he met Bumblebee!

Idw’s Transformers Annual 2017 offers the series a bit of an interlude that looks at the early days of Pyra Magna and, surprisingly, Bumblebee. Both stories offered a deeper look at these characters, though it was Pyra Magna’s story that really shed light on the character along with setting up future conflicts. All in all, though, the annual delivered a good pair of tales of the Transformers universe.
When it comes to Bumblebee, there’s not really much that needs to be said about his past or why he joined up with the Autobots. »
