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 »
Now that the spring TV Upfronts are over, we can catch our breath and start doling out some of the goods that the networks provided during the week. First up are a few new images from The CW's "The Originals."
Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together, always and forever. Now, centuries have passed, and the bonds of family are broken. Time, tragedy and hunger for power have torn the Original Family apart. When Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, receives a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, he returns to the city his family helped build. Klaus’ questions lead him to a reunion with his diabolical former protégé, Marcel, a charismatic vampire who has total control over »

This is a — and possibly “the” — key question for Big Media investors coming out of the major broadcast and cable networks’ upfront programming presentations this week. As the sales pitches wore on it became clear that execs plan to spare no expense to recover from a year of dreary ratings. There’ll be 25 new programs on the Big Four networks, up from 18 planned this time last year. What’s more, “all of the broadcast networks are moving toward year-round original schedules, less re-runs [and] more frequent ‘mini-events’,” Bernstein Research’s Todd Juenger says. He adds that networks continue to depend on star power — for example CBS landed Robin Williams for its sitcom The Crazy Ones and Turner enlisted off-camera help from Michael Bay (Transformers), Dick Wolf (Law & Order), Howard Gordon (Homeland), Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead), and Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI). “These guys don’t come cheap, and we presume they must participate significantly in the back-end, »

Eon Productions is a British company that has been involved with almost every James Bond film since 1962.s Dr. No, and it.s rarely strayed from its 007 roots. Seeing as how there probably won.t be another Bond film until 2016, though, Eon is doing some branching out. ScreenDaily reports Eon.s Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are teaming with WestEnd and Neon Film to shop the romantic drama The Silent Storm around the Cannes Film Festival. Set to star in the film are Andrea Riseborough, who recently went sci-fi with Tom Cruise in Oblivion, and Damian Lewis, who is a major reason why Homeland is one of the best shows on television right now. The Silent Storm would be the first feature film for Corinna McFarlane, whose 2008 doc Three Miles North of Molkom was nominated for a BAFTA for Best British Documentary. She would direct from a script she »
If you watch a FX on a regular basis, I’m pretty sure you’ve seen promo clips for a summer series called The Bridge. A while back we posted some mysterious 10-second snippets for the series, and although they were pretty short, we’ve all been pretty excited and eagerly anticipating the new show. With trailers for the networks’ fall shows upon us, FX has now released a full trailer for The Bridge and its looking even more promising. The series, which is a remake of a Scandinavian crime drama, comes from Homeland writer Meredith Stiehm, and stars Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir as detectives on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border who work together to stop a serial killer. On top of that, Mexican filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo, who directed one of our favourite films of 2011, Miss Bala, has directed the pilot. Watch the trailer below, and »
The CW has long been one of the best supporters of Our Kind of Shows, and at this year’s Upfronts they put even more money where our hearts are. Of the six new shows announced for the fall and winter schedule, four are for us: The Originals, The Tomorrow People, The 100, and Star-Crossed. Now of course more than one has that trademark The CW soap opera-ish spin on it, but hey, not Every show is for every one of us.
Here to assist in our prejudging are synopses for all, via Deadline, and maybe even better, clips and/or TV spots. There’s not really anything new for The Originals, but fans will want to see it all again anyway. The Tomorrow People features the wonderful Mark Pellegrino so it’s my favorite of the four.
The 100 (pronounced “the hundred”, not “the one hundred”) has an encouraging clip, »

Earlier this year, FX announced the 13 episode pick up of Meredith Stiehm's The Bridge, an adaptation of Bron about the Denmark/Sweden border. Steihm's adaptation focuses on the U.S./Mexico border and on detectives Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) and Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) who team up to track a serial killer who is operating on both sides of the border amidst a border overran by the drug cartel. Steihm previously worked on Homeland and created Cold Case. Judging from the unbelievably tense trailer, her talents will be more than showcased on this show. The Bridge premieres on July 10th at 10:00pm on FX.

It's been rumored for a while, but it looks like it's actually happening, per Deadline: Al Pacino and David Gordon Green are teaming up. As reported a while back, the unlikely duo are pairing up on "Manglehorn," which will see Pacino as "an eccentric man who tries to come to terms with a past crime that cost him the love of his life." While Pacino's been doing some solid work on HBO, it's a full decade since his last great big screen performance (in Christopher Nolan's "Insomnia"), so the team up with Gordon Green couldn't have come soon enough, especially as we're hearing good buzz on "Joe," his next film, with Nicolas Cage. Photography will get underway in October Meanwhile, Zach Braff doesn't just have his Kickstarter funding, he now has $10 million in other financing for his "Garden State" follow-up "Wish I Was Here," and is coasting towards production. »

Fox’s decision to bring 24 back in May 2014 for a twelve-episode season might never have happened if executive producer Howard Gordon hadn’t been able to reunite the series’ original crew. No, not Tony Almeida, Chloe, and President Palmer (though you never know): Gordon means the original writing staff. When the plans to bring Jack Bauer to the big screen fell apart, Gordon started thinking about doing another season on TV. “Then one day over dinner with Kiefer, I said, ‘You know what? I’ll do it [as a TV show], but only if we can get the old team back.’ And as it happens, everyone is coming off a show or has got a deal wherein they’ve got some time. Some of them are on Homeland, so they can come in and pinch-hit,” Gordon told Vulture at the Turner upfronts. (His new thriller Legends, a 24-meets–Bourne Identity series with Sean »

Turner entertainment chief Steve Koonin and TNT/TBS/TCM programming prexy Michael Wright (pictured left to right above) also are set to unveil a slew of development projects with high-profile creative auspices including Steven Spielberg, Dick Wolf, Steven Carell, Jamie Foxx, Nicholas Sparks, Sylvester Stallone and Diablo Cody.

The news of Fox’s efforts to revive the three-year dead 24 series has taken a big turn for the best. After long negotiations, the proposed limited series we reported on recently has been given the big greenlight thanks to the signing of Kiefer Sutherland. Jack Bauer is back and likely more dangerous than ever now that his time is being cut short. This is all part of Fox’s big push into the world of limited series, which includes M. Night Shyamalan’s Wayward Pines, starring Matt Dillon. Whether or not this new game plan will work out remains to be seen, but the using of 24 as a starting point seems like a surefire way to rouse interest.
According to Deadline, the new 24, which is coming from former showrunner and Homeland executive producer Howard Gordon, will be co-produced by Gordon’s Teakwood Lane with Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox TV. »
