John Boyega Confirmed For Pacific Rim 2

Published

on

For all the nostalgia of seeing Harrison Ford’s wisecracking Han Solo, the glorious locks of Chewbacca and the spinetingling reveal of Luke Skywalker, John Boyega made a grand impression in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as newcomer Finn.

Just when you thought wielding lightsabers and fighting off stormtroopers was enough for the Attack The Block star, he is now set to be a crucial component in the ongoing battle between the Kaiju and Jaegers, as he has been confirmed to star in Pacific Rim 2.

Boyega’s role will involve being the son to Idris Elba’s (this year’s The Jungle Book) commanding officer, the wonderfully titled Stacker Pentecost. The actor’s involvement is also set to stretch beyond being in front of the camera, as he clarified on his personal Twitter account that his production company UpperRoom Productions will be co-producing the film alongside Legendary.

The well-received 2013 original which starred Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam and Warcraft’s Rob Kazinsky grossed just over $100 million in the US alone and was directed by Pans Labyrinth and Hellboy’s Guillermo Del Toro, who has fought fiercely to get this sequel off the ground.

Pacific Rim 2 will be directed by Steven S. DeKnight.

Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact. Super strength? Flying? He seems more concerned on how he’s meant to pee in his red suit. Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

Fantastical Debut Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Welcomes You To Atlantis

Published

on

Still reeling from the critical reception which greeted ‘Justice League’ last year. Director James Wan and leading man Jason Momoa are tasked with keeping Warner Bros’ DCEU above water this December with ‘Aquaman’ and after seeing the action-packed first footage straight from Comic-Con, they seem up for the challenge.

Billed as the origin story of the half-human half -Atlantean. We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

First ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Trailer Is An Atomic Blast

Published

on

Well. If you thought there wasn’t enough monster mayhem in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 effort.

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
