Pacific Rim's Wondercon trailer premiered online yesterday to rapturous applause from the geek nation, and rightly so, it's a sustained blast of epic scaled imagery and heavy-duty badassery.
The second trailer for OAP espionage-comedy Red 2 (or as I like to refer to it: 'Classy Expendables') has been released online. It introduces Anthony Hopkins' mad scientist character, reveals more plot details and most importantly, contains more footage of Dame Helen Mirren being an ice-cold badass.
If that isn't an incentive for you to give it a go, then I'm honestly not sure how to entice you further, sorry.
Actions speak louder than words. In the spirit of those words, I present the Wondercon trailer for Pacific Rim.
I am Lost in the Multiplex's resident Fast & Furious fanatic, so it's an understatement t say to say that Fast & Furious 6 is my most anticipated movie of the summer.
The previous trailers stuck to the same key moneyshots; the military convoy attack, the tank, the plane. This trailer changes it up, with the plane set piece no longer capping off proceedings, in favour of a greater focus on the heart of the story: The rift in the Fast family between Vin Diesel's Dom and Michelle Rodriguez's now villainous Letty.
Shane Black, whose writing credits include the Lethal Weapon series, as well as the 2005 breakthrough hit Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, has announced that he is still on board to adapt all-round pulp magazine hero Doc Savage. Black's second directing job is Iron Man 3 - 2013's first major blockbuster - which hit cinemas nationwide this week.
Humanity is on the brink of extinction. Giant monsters, known as kaiju, are laying waste to our cities. The casualties are incalculable.
The Pacific Rim marketing has slowed down some after the Jaeger-themed poster series grabbed audiences attention, but it never disappeared. Two recent viral posters promote the tireless efforts of the Pan Pacific Defence Corps, one asking for volunteers to pilot the mighty Jaegers and the other advertising labourers to help construct the giant robots.
21 Jump Street - based on a TV show of the same name from the late 1980's - took Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill back to high school as two under-achieving, undercover cops in order to bust a drug ring, in what was one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable films of 2012.
Producer Neal H. Moritz has confirmed that directors Chris Miller & Phil Lord – who also helmed the fantastic Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - will be jumping behind the camera once more for the sequel.
Armie Hammer has received good notices for his performance(s) in The Social Network, as well as his supporting turn as a horrifying Mummy in J. Edgar, but will finally launch himself into the big-time with this summer's Lone Ranger. Despite being the title role, Hammer will be content to play second-fiddle to Johnny Depp's Tonto. Speaking as someone who tires of Depp's shtick, Hammer's presence in the trailers has entertained me far more, so kudos to him.
Hammer's next big role will once again see him share the spotlight with a major movie star; Tom Cruise. The pair will unite for Guy Ritchie's adaptation of the popular spy series The Man from UNCLE.
Neal Moritz caught a lot of shit over the years for his Fast & Furious franchise, to the extent that even the Moritz-produced Torque outright mocked the franchise after it was a mere two movies old. Until 2011, The Fast & The Furious was a joke to most, but then Fast Five changed the game completely.
