I’m half Japanese. I’m an american. I’ve lived in Japan for a lot of my earlier childhood and 1/4 of my life. I have land there. I knew ramen was life since the ’80s, and not cheap college student menu before U.S. hipsters of the past several years did. I even rocked a bento strong in elementary school, some of which were Macross branded. I was introduced to Macross through Robotech though, as I suspect most people in the U.S. were, but in my years in Japan, I’ve never come across anyone (the count is officially zero) who seem to care more about how Robotech came into being as I have in english speaking messaegeboards in the 21st century. They have theirs, we have ours. As a child of both worlds it was never really a conflict, so it’s always puzzled me why it »

Variety is reporting that their sources close to the production of Star Trek 3 have found out that Idris Elba (Pacific Rim, Avengers Age of Ultron and Thor The Dark World) is in talks to take up the role of villain in the next film. Paramount and Skydance would not comment on this news. Of course details about his role will be kept under wraps until the very last moment when a strategic leak takes place. The same report noted that early rumors had the Klingons as the villains in this next film. I hope we are not making the connections because Elba is black. Elba is an intriguing choice though. He certainly carries an intensity and could be malevolent if he really wanted to. Star Trek 3...

As of now, we still know very little about Star Trek 3 when it comes to the story. What we do know so far is that Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin will all be back on the Enterprise, with Pegg pulling double duty as co-writer of the script with Doug Jung. Getting behind the camera this time is Justin Lin of the Fast & Furious franchise, which has certainly raised some eyebrows. And now it's time for the supporting cast to get filled out, including the new villain for the sequel, and Variety has word that Pacific Rim and Thor: The Dark Wold star Idris Elba is in talks for the key role. As of now there's no word on who he would play, but there have been rumblings of the Klingons being the main adversaries this time. And when you consider »

After canceling the Apocalypse in “Pacific Rim,” Idris Elba looks to be joining another major sci-fi franchise, as he’s in negotiations to play the villain in “Star Trek 3,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. Justin Lin will direct Paramount’s sequel, which brings back Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban and Anton Yelchin. J.J. Abrams will produce with his Bad Robot partner Bryan Burke and Skydance’s David Ellison.

"The Warrior Of The Wasteland! The Ayatollah of rock and rollah!" When I heard myself bellow both of those phrases into a mic on the stage of the Paramount theater in Austin, I got this weird out-of-body feeling that sometimes happens when I'm doing something that younger film nerd me would have freaked out about completely. In this particular case, I was bringing George Miller to the stage to discuss his classic 1982 film, "The Road Warrior," known around the world by its more-accurate-but-less-poetic title, "Mad Max 2." It is safe to say that I adore George Miller. I think he's one of the most remarkable filmmakers to emerge in the '80s, and one of the things that I find most amazing about the "Fury Road" footage we've seen so far is that it feels like he hasn't lost a step. If anything, he's taking all of his experience and then »

As Alexander begins to think for himself, creeping fears take shape and Gregori’s idyllic world unravels.

Is there any role Idris Elba couldn’t play? Apparently not, it seems, with the actor linked to iconic characters from Doctor Who to James Bond – both of which, for the record, would be awesome. He’s already played some of the most iconic characters of his generation, too, from The Wire’s gentleman gangster Stringer Bell to angsty detective Luther to the title role in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.
He hasn’t got the call from Steven Moffat or the Broccolis yet, but Elba isn’t exactly wanting for roles. He accidentally revealed that Heimdall, the Norse god the actor plays in the Thor films, will be a part of Marvel’s summer smash hit-in-waiting Avengers: Age Of Ultron. And before that, there’s the psychological thriller No Good Deed, out on DVD and Digital HD from next week. »

Famous Monsters‘ new comic book imprint, American Gothic Press, is out the door and hitting the cement with the first issue of Gunsuits, a science fiction epic packed with robots, personality, and—appropriately—giant monsters.
From a script by Eisner winner Paul Tobin (Colder, Prometheus), Gunsuits is a whirlwind ride of mechs, monsters, and alternate universes, adapted from the short story “Wormholes”. The story follows Cassandra “Potts” Potter as she battles gigantic, scaly bio-weapons and simultaneously searches every available dimension for a way to win. “I always try to keep in mind that heroes [like Potts] are regular people,” says Tobin. “They’ve been forced into a situation, but ‘Serve justice!’ isn’t what’s paramount in a hero’s mind. It’s more ‘don’t get shot or eaten’ and ‘don’t let my friends get shot or eaten’.” Both are distinct possibilities in Gunsuits when Potts is introduced to a »

He will also be honored at “An Evening With Guillermo del Toro” on April 25 at the Castro Theatre with an interview, selection of clips, a sneak peek at upcoming projects and a screening of “The Devil’s Backbone.”
“Guillermo del Toro’s remarkable ability to shift between intimate political drama and blockbuster action is shared with only a very few select filmmakers at the top of the field,” said Noah Cowan, executive director of the society, in a statement. “This award is a tribute to his boundless imagination and to his deep understanding of cinema history. Del Toro is both a great teacher and a boisterous communicator of why »
