The first Pacific Rim was more style over substance. Where the film excelled in its visual spectacle, it clearly lacked in strong character development and an engaging narrative. With so much missing, it’s hard to believe that a sequel could ever be greenlit. And yet, here we are, with Pacific Rim Uprising. An unnecessary sequel, that no one asked for, and yet, it’s still so much fun to watch. My full review below.

Pacific Rim: Uprising Header

Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim gets high marks for its giant robot vs Kaiju fun. Though the film was more style than substance, and almost all of it took place in the dark, making it that much harder to see the fights. However, Pacific Rim: Uprising looks like it will take a new direction. The connective tissues of its predecessor are still there. Familiar characters are making a return, and John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father (played by Idris Elba) gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous Kaiju.

Of course, there are the giant robots and Kaiju. However, the sequel seems to be introducing new elements into the franchise. And one that may present a threat to the Jaeger pilots when another Jaeger appears to them as the opposition. Check out the latest trailer below.

Universal Pictures has released the final trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising. The film is the sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, and sees the world threatened by the towering monsters known as Kaiju once more.

Now it is up to a new team of young Jaeger pilots to take place of the legends that came before them and defend the earth, or else watch it be destroyed. However, based on the trailer, there appears to be a huge twist. Check it out below.

Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak - Movie Review

Crimson Peak
Director: Guillermo del Toro
Screenwriters: Guillermo del Toro, Matthew Robbins
Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam, Jim Beaver, Doug Jones, Burn Gorman
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 118 Minutes
Release Date: October 16, 2015

“Ghosts are real, that much I know. I’ve seen them all my life…”

Directed by Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Crimson Peak is a gothic romance that hearkens back to golden age Hollywood productions like Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s Dragonwyck, and Hitchcock’s Rebecca.

Set in the year 1901, Crimson Peak follows Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska, Stoker), an aspiring author living with her father, Carter Cushing (Jim Beaver), in Buffalo, New York. Armed with a fascination for the supernatural and a passion for literature, Edith hopes to follow in the footsteps of forward-thinking Victorian women like Mary Shelley.

Her latest work of fiction – a ghost story – is based in reality, as Edith is plagued by visions of her deceased mother. A skull-faced phantom veiled in black, Edith’s mother has appeared throughout her daughter’s life to deliver a cryptic warning, “Beware of Crimson Peak.”

Pacific Rim

Whether a sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s 2013 giant robots vs. giant monsters flick Pacific Rim would be made or not was unknown for a time. The movie cost $190 million to make, but, for reasons beyond human understanding, only made $101.8 million here in the States.

Thankfully the movie still did strong overseas, scoring $111.9 million in China and $309.2 million overall, bringing its worldwide grand total to $411 million. Because of this, Pacific Rim 2 has been confirmed and an official release date has been locked in. Also announced is the development of an animated series set in the Pacific Rim world and the continuation of the comic book series.

Continue below to see a video of del Toro making the announcement.
