The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another.

Actor Ron Perlman Campaigns to Play Cable in Deadpool 2

20 May 2016 5:16 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fan favorite actor Ron Perlman took to his official Facebook page and Instagram account to put his name in the running to play the mutant Cable in Director Tim Miller's "Deadpool 2" starring Ryan Reynolds. The actor has started a campaign to get cast in the film which would see Reynolds reprise his role as Wade Wilson aka 'Deadpool' alongside the time-traveling mutant Cable.

Perlman has posted photographs of himself side-by-side with Cable from the comic books and the resemblance seems uncanny.  The actor shared a pic on Instagram with the caption "Even my fave artist got into the fray..." implying comic book artist Shaine Schroeder who first posted an image of Perlman and Cable. Perlman added another comparison of himself and Cable on his official Facebook account with the caption: "Or hair. I'm the only one with Cable's friggin Hair!." 

Even my fave artist got into the fray. »

With Gareth gone, where does Godzilla go next?

17 May 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Gareth Edwards exiting the Godzilla sequel, Tony Black asks what is next for the King of the Monsters…

When Godzilla returned in 2014, the odds were stacked against him. The last time Hollywood had seen everyone’s favourite movie monster, he was ignominiously handled by the Roland Emmerich/Dean Devlin popcorn machine in 1997’s hokey version. Nobody really knew if British director Gareth Edwards was going to cut the mustard and deliver a modern-day outing worthy of the big guy – it was only his second major feature after the indie monster movie Monsters–indeed a *very* different kind of film than the romper stomping of Toho’s historic monsters–which he used his home computer to complete VFX on. Godzilla was a massive move from low-fi to huge budget, tentpole blockbuster and on the whole, Edwards made it work – some uninspired character work & writing aside, it had scope, scale and »

Lars Von Trier to direct a serial killer film as his next feature

17 May 2016 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When you think of Lars Von Trier movies, misery probably arises in the very essence of your being.  As brilliant, bold and brave as his films tend to be, they aren’t exactly rainbows and puppies.  He’s made a career out of polarizing audiences and critics alike with an oeuvre of unapologetic happiness vacuums, but if you can appreciate cinema that challenges, provokes and isn’t afraid to hold back, then there aren’t many filmmakers out there as compelling as this great Dane.  With his next feature, he appears to be entering even darker territory, and it doesn’t sound pretty.

As reported per Variety, the film is called ‘The House That Jack Built’ and it follows the exploits of a serial in Washington:

Set in Washington, The House That Jack Built revolves around a serial killer. The story is told from his perspective and takes place over ten to twelve years. »

Comic Book Review: 4001 Ad Xo-Manowar #1

16 May 2016 11:43 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

 In the first issue of 4001 Ad we got an introduction to the situation at hand as well as a brief overview of the characters. Now we get our first tie-in book X-o Manowar, but interestingly enough we actually only see the armor. This book gives us information as to who created the XOs suites, how and why. It looks like it was the world’s early response to the threat of Father who had gotten out of hand and needed to be stopped. In a sort of Pacific Rim way the world’s nations come together and each build an Xo to fight Father. This book gives us the perspective of the American pilot. Sadly all that work goes to waste as Father saw the whole attack coming. He promptly destroys the all but one Xo, the American one that did not manage to take off. Father had sent one »

11 DC Comics movies awaiting a greenlight

From Justice League Dark and The Batman to Lobo and Man Of Steel 2 - the DC movies that await a greenlight...

Big spoilers lie ahead for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Whichever side of the imaginary rivalry you fall into, there's no denying that when it comes to movies, DC has got some catching up to do. In the same year as Marvel Studios released their first major crossover, The Avengers, Warner Bros released The Dark Knight Rises, the final chapter in Christopher Nolan's acclaimed Batman trilogy, which was firmly grounded in the notion that Bruce Wayne is the world's only superhero.

Nolan's disinterest in the larger DC toybox left Warners a few steps behind Disney and Marvel, especially after the failure of 2010's Jonah Hex and 2011's Green Lantern, the latter of which was intended as the first step into a wider universe. »

‘Jurassic World’ Co-Writer To Pen ‘Pacific Rim: Maelstrom’

Hollywood is a funny place. Back in September, after months of Guillermo del Toro teasing script ideas and saying he was working on getting funding, it was announced that “Pacific Rim 2” was to be postponed indefinitely. A couple of months later, Legendary announced that the film was in pre-production, now under the title “Pacific […]

Derek Connolly signs up to pen the new draft of the Pacific Rim 2 script, for director Steven DeKnight...

Even though Guillermo del Toro won’t be directing any more, the sequel to Pacific Rim continues to rumble forward. Steven DeKnight, the showrunner for Daredevil’s first season on Netflix, is the new man in the director’s chair. Del Toro, meanwhile, is involved now in a producer capacity.

Now we learn that some more screenwriting work has been bought in too, as Derek Connolly has been hired to help put together the Pacific Rim 2 script. Connolly co-penned, with Colin Trevorrow, the Jurassic World screenplay. He also wrote the outstanding Safety Not Guaranteed. It's unclear at the moment whether he's starting from scratch with Pacific Rim 2, or building on the previous drafts that have been overseen by del Toro.

No plot details for the Pacific Rim sequel have been revealed thus far. »

For awhile, the future of the proposed Pacific Rim franchise seemed to be on very shaky ground with Guillermo Del Toro trying to plow ahead as best as he could, even as concerns about the financial viability of the series continued to surface. However, with Steven DeKnight taking over the director's chair for a sequel and Del Toro sliding into a producing role, progress is being made on... Read More »

Jurassic World screenwriter hired for Pacific Rim 2

12 May 2016 2:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jurassic World screenwriter Derek Connolly has been hired by Legendary to write the script for Pacific Rim 2, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.

Marvel’s Daredevil season one showrunner Steven S. DeKnight will direct the sequel to Guillermo Del Toro’s 2013 blockbuster, which pitted robots piloted by humans known as ‘Jaegers’ against otherworldly Kaiju invaders.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but we do know that it will be set some time after the events in the first film.

Del Toro is on board to serve as a producer as he turns his directorial focus to a fantasy tale set against the backdrop of the Cold War-era America.

Connolly is no stranger to monster movies.  In addition to Jurassic World and its upcoming sequel, he has also worked on the script for Kong: Skull Island, set for release in 2017.

'Jurassic World' Screenwriter Derek Connolly To Pen 'Pacific Rim 2'

12 May 2016 2:21 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Derek Connolly, the co-writer of Jurassic World, has been set to pen Pacific Rim 2, the sequel to Legendary Pictures mechas vs. monsters directed by Guillermo del Toro.

Drafts of the sequel have already been worked on by del Toro, Zak Penn and Jon Spaihts, and while plot details are being kept under wraps, at one point it was to have been set many years after the original movie where the monster-fighting robot suits known as Jaegers have become commonplace. It is unclear if Connolly is doing a page one rewrite or developing certain story ideas.

Netflix's Daredevil season 1 showrunner Steven DeKnight is set to direct the sequel. Guillermo del Toro will remain onboard as producer alongside Thomas Tull, Mary Parent and Jon Jashni.

Pacific Rim was released summer 2013 and grossed $101 million at the domestic box office but went on to take in over $400 million worldwide. »

Pacific Rim 2 Gets Jurassic World Writer

12 May 2016 2:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Late last year, it looked like the often-delayed sequel Pacific Rim 2 wasn't ever going to happen, with some reports stating it was canceled altogether, while others claimed the sequel may still happen. Earlier this year, the project gained new life, when Daredevil Season 1 showrunner Steven S. DeKnight came aboard to direct, replacing original Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro, who is remaining on board as a producer. Today we have word that Legendary Pictures has brought on Jurassic World writer Derek Connolly to craft the script.

The Pacific Rim 2 script was previously worked on by Guillermo del Toro, Zak Penn (Ready Player One) and Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). This report from The Hollywood Reporter states that it isn't clear if Derek Connolly is doing a full page-one rewrite, or if he is incorporating ideas from the previous drafts into his script. Earlier versions of the script reportedly took place several years »

Pacific Rim 2 Just Took A Major Step Forward, Get The Details

12 May 2016 2:01 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The sequel to Pacific Rim has pretty much become synonymous with the phrase "development hell" over the last few years. Although Guillermo del Toro has continually insisted that the film would materialize, good news has been hard to come by for the project. Luckily, today seems to represent such an occasion. We’ve just learned that Pacific Rim 2 has taken a Kaiju-sized step forward by enlisting a new screenwriter to polish the script.   According to a recent report from THR, it seems that Pacific Rim 2 has brought screenwriter Derek Connolly on board. It appears that he will work alongside current director Steven S. DeKnight – who helped shepherd the first season of Netflix’s hit series Daredevil – with regards to fine-tuning the story and bringing the sequel to life. The report also confirms that Guillermo del Toro remains firmly committed to the project, albeit »

'Pacific Rim' sequel adds 'Jurassic World' writer to pen script

12 May 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just days after it was announced that robots would fight monsters in the big screen version of the board game Monsterpocalypse, Legendary Pictures revealed more of their plans for the strangely similar Pacific Rim sequel. THR.com is reporting that Derek Connolly will write Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, the follow-up to the 2013 movie. Daredevil Ep Steven DeKnight is already attached to direct. While Connolly is a relatively new writer, his resume is impressive, having written the mega-hit Jurassic World, and he has two movies in post production. Connolly will also write the Jurassic World sequel as well as Star Wars: Episode IX. The first Pacific Rim film did not fare well. Despite an estimated production budget of $190 million, the movie bombed domestically, making just $101 million. In fact, on its opening weekend, it lost out to Despicable Me 2 and Grown Ups 2. It performed much better overseas, bringing in just over $300 million, »

Jurassic World’s Derek Connolly to Work on Pacific Rim 2 Screenplay

12 May 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Derek Connolly (Jurassic World) has had a full schedule the last several years, and it just got even busier now that Legendary has lined up the in-demand writer to work on the screenplay for Pacific Rim 2.

According to THR, Connolly will step behind the keyboard for Pacific Rim 2, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film that saw giant human-controlled robots known as Jaegers do battle against the colossal Kaiju with Earth’s fate hanging in the balance.

It was previously revealed that del Toro will produce but not direct the sequel, and that Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus, Netflix’s Daredevil) will instead step behind the camera to helm the follow-up film.

Jon Spaihts (The Mummy, Doctor Strange, Prometheus) previously worked on the Pacific Rim 2 screenplay, with del Toro and Zak Penn also offering input on the story, but it’s unclear if Connolly will start from scratch or work »
