Fascinating “Digital Artistry” Featurette For ‘Pacific Rim’ – Starring Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam & Rinko Kikuchi
Warner Bros. Pictures has sent over this new behind-the-scenes featurette for Guillermo del Toro’s action adventure movie, ‘Pacific Rim.’ Out now in 2D, 3D and IMAX release, ’Pacific Rim’ is set in 2025, the 12th year of a war against giant malevolent alien creatures who reside in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. To combat its annihilation, the planet must band together and use highly advanced weapons technology to eradicate the growing threat. Undoubtedly one of my most anticipated movies of 2013, ‘Pacific Rim’ boasts a stellar cast of Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rob Kazinsky, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Max Martini.
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes the sci-fi action adventure “Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim.” 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 synched via a neural bridge, called “The Drift.” But as the enemy grows more powerful with each attack, even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.
Doaly has put together this brilliant movie alphabet project based on iconic films. Doaly’s description for the piece is as follows: “I set myself a little task to create a movie based alphabet of iconic films but I wanted to start and complete the project in one day, from choosing the films to creating the final artwork. With so many great movies to choose from it was hard choice hence why I’m labelling this project vol:1 because I know I’d like to go back and do vol:2 someday and maybe only give myself half a day. There you have it Project 26, 26 letter, 26 movies and 12 hours.” Head on over to Doaly’s website, Facebook or Twitter for more excellent designs.
First 2 ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’ TV Spots – Starring Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario & Brandon T Jackson
20th Century Fox has let out the hatch these first two TV spots for ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.’ Directed by Thor Freudenthal with a script by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the sequel stars Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith, Brandon T Jackson, Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown, Missi Pyle, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Paloma Kwiatkowski, Leven Rambin, Stanley Tucci, Robert Maillet and Zoe Aggeliki.
The first film in the franchise, ‘Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief,’ grossed $226.5 million at the worldwide box office in 2010. The sequel finds Percy Jackson, the son of Poseidon, continuing his epic journey to fulfill his destiny, as he teams with his demigod friends to retrieve the Golden Fleece, which has the power to save their home and training ground, Camp Half-Blood. ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’ is set for a August 7th release.
Legendary Pictures has debuted this latest Comic-Con poster (the 6th of 6) for ’300: Rise of an Empire,’ the upcoming follow-up to Zack Snyder’s ’300.’ Planned for a March 7th, 2014 release, ’300: Rise of an Empire’ stars Rodrigo Santoro returning as Xerxes, Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles, Jack O’Connell as Calisto, Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo, David Wenham as Dilios, and Eva Green as Artemisia.
’300: Rise of an Empire’ is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel that takes Xerxes, the Persian leader who is an antagonist in ’300,’ and turns him into more of a pivotal figure. He’s a man in search of godhood after the death of his father, battling an Athenian warlord named Themistokles. The story takes place over the course of several years, but the focal point is the battle of Artemisium, which occured in 480 BC. Previous reports had Zack Snyder – who in my eyes done a fantastic job with ’300′ – pegged to direct until Warner Bros and producer Christopher Nolan signed him up to helm ‘Man of Steel.’ Noam Murro (five-time DGA nominated commercials director) is on board to direct the film. Snyder produces.
