Pacific Rim shared universe, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer, all-female Marvel team-up movie and more – Weekend News Roundup

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pacific Rim Shared Universe

It should come as no surprise given the latest Hollywood trend, but it has been revealed that Pacific Rim: Uprising could be a launching platform for a shared universe. “If enough people show up to this, we’ve already talked about the plot of the third movie, and how the end of the third movie would expand the universe to a Star Wars/Star Trek-style [franchise] where you can go in many, many different directions,” director Steven DeKnight told Nerdist. “You can go main canon, you can go spin-offs, you can go one-offs. Yeah, that’s the plan. And I would love to see an animated TV show based on this.” Read more here.

Speaking of shared universes, and the production date for Wonder Woman 2 has possibly been revealed, with the rumoured plot involving, “Princess Diana facing off against the Soviet Union during the 1980s. »

Pacific Rim Uprising a “launching pad” for a shared universe

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the release of the first trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising, Nerdist caught up with director Steven S. DeKnight to discuss the film, with DeKnight revealing that the plan is for the sequel to serve as a “launching pad” for an entire transmedia franchise featuring movies, spinoff films, comics and even an animated series.

“I’m certainly hoping so,” said DeKnight. “I think you’ll definitely probably get more comics. The plan was always to use this movie as a launching pad. If enough people show up to this, we’ve already talked about the plot of the third movie, and how the end of the third movie would expand the universe to a Star Wars/Star Trek-style [franchise] where you can go in many, many different directions.

What Scott Eastwood Looks Like as the New Wolverine

14 October 2017 11:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Digital artist BossLogic is back at it again, this time giving us an idea of what Scott Eastwood could look like as Wolverine. Hugh Jackman has recently retired from the role of Logan after portraying the character 9 times, leaving the door open for the next actor to step in and play one of the best-known Marvel characters in history. When the time does come to find a replacement for Jackman, you can guarantee that there will be a monster of a debate about who played Wolverine better that will last for decades.

Scott Eastwood was recently at New York Comic-Con for the Pacific Rim: Uprising panel and he was asked about playing a superhero during an interview with ComicBook. Without hesitation, the actor blurted out "Weapon X... I mean Logan!" Talks of Scott Eastwood taking over on the role of Wolverine have been rumbling ever since Hugh Jackman announced »

‘Star Wars' Actor John Boyega on Porgs: 'They're Rodents, But They're Great' (Exclusive)

11 October 2017 9:41 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

With all the speculation surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi, only Et has the exclusive -- straight from star John Boyega -- on the franchise's most buzzed about new plot point: Porgs.

What are porgs, you ask? We’ve got you covered.

Porgs are the new, face-meltingly adorable creatures in the Star Wars universe that will make their debut in Episode VIII, The Last Jedi, on Dec. 15.

via Giphy

According to director Rian Johnson, porgs are sea birds. Their coloring varies. They can fly short distances. They’re inquisitive. Males are slightly larger than females. A group of porgs, Johnson said on Twitter, is called a "murder."

We covered last year’s Hawaii International Film Festival — its 35th edition — and now the fest is back for another year. Asian box-office sensations, Cannes art-house favorites, and a particularly strong lineup of indigenous Pacific filmmaking highlight this year’s edition, which runs November 2-12 in Oahu. Long a bastion of Pacific Rim and specifically Pacific Islander story-telling, the festival this year brings forth a new competition for films made in Hawaii, highlighted by the Closing Night world premiere of Alexander Bocchieri’s Go For Broke: An Origin Story, a narrative feature based on the famed 442nd Infantry Regiment, a World […] »

Pacific Rim is now planned as a cinematic universe

Simon Brew Oct 11, 2017

Pacific Rim: Uprising is planned as a springboard for a cinematic universe of projects...

As Warner Bros with its DC Extended Universe and Universal with its Dark Universe both retreat slightly from the cinematic universe idea, it seems that Pacific Rim is plunging straight in.

Presenting material from the film Pacific Rim: Uprising over the weekend at New York Comic Con, director Steven S DeKnight revealed to Nerdist that there are plans afoot to turn Pacific Rim into a broader universe.

“I’m certainly hoping so. I think you’ll definitely probably get more comics. The plan was always to use this movie as a launching pad. If enough people show up to this, we’ve already talked about the plot of the third movie, and how the end of the third movie would expand the universe to a Star Wars/Star Trek-style [franchise or series] where you can go in many, »

See John Boyega And Scott Eastwood In IMAX Trailer For Pacific Rim Uprising

10 October 2017 4:19 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

(L to R, foreground) John Boyega as Jake and Scott Eastwood as Lambert in the “Gipsy Avenger” conn pod in “Pacific Rim Uprising.” 

Remember that awesome bit in 2013’s Pacific Rim where Idris Elba rallies the troops with his rousing call to arms “We Are Canceling the Apocalypse!” It’s all the more cool with Ramin Djawadi’s score.

You know the scene…

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

Set to be released in cinemas on March 23, 2018, check out the stunning and newly released IMAX trailer.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.”

Jake has since abandoned his training only »

Long weekends are beautiful things. They’re especially beautiful for movie lovers because they practically guarantee a flood of exciting movie news come Tuesday morning. And this long weekend certainly didn’t disappoint!

Aside from the hotly-anticipated new Star Wars trailer (which you can read about here), a new trailer for Justice League also hit the internet, and we could not be more excited.

Check it out below, and catch Justice League when it storms into Cineplex theatres November 17th.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s John Boyega Previews Finn Vs. Captain Phasma

10 October 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fn-2187 is about to get his own back on his former employer.

Erstwhile Stormtrooper Finn, who suffered a close brush with death during the closing moments of The Force Awakens, will be hoping to enact his revenge on the First Order when Star Wars: The Last Jedi steamrolls into theaters this December. And doesn’t John Boyega know all about it.

Taking to Twitter in the aftermath of last night’s big reveal, the Pacific Rim: Uprising actor drew attention to Finn’s imminent clash with Captain Phasma, and how it ought to please those Star Wars fans who have slaved under a “crappy” boss in years gone by. You’ve heard that revenge is a dish best served cold, but based on The Last Jedi‘s spectacular full trailer, Finn vs. Captain Phasma is shaping up to be a fiery, nail-biting duel that takes place towards the end »

Breaking Down the First “Pacific Rim: Uprising” Trailer

9 October 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Thinking everything was okay again when Pacific Rim ended was obviously premature since the new film is coming out eventually. It will be bringing back the Jaegers and the Kaiju will be back as well. The rift being closed obviously didn’t do anything, but that’s kind of expected since the creatures that opened it in the first place seem more than capable of opening another rift if they so desired. Plus, even if Gypsy Danger’s explosion wiped out a single cell of them there’s nothing to say that the target wasn’t just one in an entire legion of factories that

Pacific Rim Cinematic Universe Is Being Planned

9 October 2017 5:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you want a lot more monsters and giant robots duking it out in the future, you may very well get your wish. Pacific Rim Uprising is set to debut in theaters in March, which serves as a follow-up to Guillermo Del Toro's first giant robot flick. Now Pacifc Rim 2 director, Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) reveals that, if the sequel does well enough at the box office, we could see a Pacific Rim cinematic universe take shape.

During New York Comic Con, the first trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising debuted and, for the most part, it looks to be more of the same. How many times can you make giant robots fighting giant aliens exciting? Steven S. DeKnight spoke with Nerdist during Nycc and, according to him, they've already discussed a third movie and potential spin-offs. So, apparently, the Pacific Rim universe could somehow be rich with stories. »

Pacific Rim: Uprising May Spawn The Next Cinematic Universe

9 October 2017 2:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If there’s one 2018 blockbuster that enjoyed a huge showcase at New York Comic Con, it’s Pacific Rim: Uprising.

Steven S. DeKnight’s super-sized sequel brought the big, big guns thanks to that show-stopping first trailer, one designed to usher in a new generation of Jaeger pilots. Front and center is John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Jake Pentecost, son of the apocalypse-canceling Stacker, who suits up alongside Scott Eastwood to fend off a whole new wave of Kaiju nasties. And if Friday’s footage is any indication, that resurgence will include a towering monstrosity that’ll surely register as a category six on the Ppdc’s (Pan Pacific Defense Corps) official spectrum.

But what of Pacific Rim‘s future beyond 2018? We know that a spinoff cartoon series was once considered under Guillermo del Toro’s supervision, but those plans were quietly shelved when the Mexican »
