Things were looking pretty rough for Pacific Rim 2, but the sequel has been coming together slowly but surely, first with the addition of former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight as director, then with Derek Connolly as screenwriter, and — best of all — with John Boyega joining the cast as our new apocalypse-canceller. Today brings even more good news for fans of the kaiju vs. robots blockbuster, as Pacific Rim 2 has been given an official release date.
It took 20 years for Roland Emmerich to deliver a sequel to Independence Day, a film that’s largely responsible for the modern summer blockbuster season. Unfortunately, it looks like most audiences didn’t think it was worth the wait. As predicted in recent weeks, Resurgence crash-landed in theaters with an underwhelming opening weekend that was no match for Pixar’s Finding Dory.
Over the past week we’ve seen lots of new stuff from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, including photos, character details, more photos, info on those highly-publicized reshoots, some other photos, and oh, hey, what do we have here? It’s more photos! We have six images from the upcoming Star Wars anthology film along with more details about the characters, including Mon Mothma — who will have a bigger role than we previously assumed.
Like that creepy doll from The Conjuring, that creepy nun from James Wan’s The Conjuring 2 will also get her own spinoff, further expanding the spooky Wan-iverse. The director’s fictional versions of famous paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren have housed an entire collection of keepsakes and haunted objects from their cases, meaning there’s no shortage of possibilities for Wan’s ever-growing franchise.
Steven Spielberg has only gotten busier in recent years; the prolific director has been adding a fair amount of projects to his growing to-do list, including Indiana Jones 5, set to hit theaters in 2019. Harrison Ford will return to reprise his iconic role as the archaeological adventurer despite repeatedly denied rumors that Disney is looking to pass the torch to a new star. If you had any remaining doubts, Spielberg himself assures fans that Ford isn’t going anywhere — at least not in his Indy universe.
Neither Shane Black nor Arnold Schwarzenegger have confirmed the actor’s return for The Predator, though the two have expressed interest in the possibility — because how could they not? But one thing is for certain: If Schwarzenegger does come back, he won’t be playing the primary protagonist this time around. Black says as much in a new interview, where he reveals the current name of the hero in his Predator sequel, and discusses his plan to “event-ize” the franchise.
If the latest rumor regarding Alien: Covenant proves to be true, then you should definitely turn back now because this could be a potentially major spoiler. A new report offers additional details on Katherine Waterston’s role in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus follow-up, in which she plays the commander of a derelict crew — we already knew that, of course, but what we didn’t know is that there just might be something more to Waterston’s part.
Rian Johnson has shared a few photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII — nothing too revealing, of course, but as the director nears the end of production on the upcoming sequel, his latest photo offers something a little more intriguing. It’s not particularly revelatory, but the image does feature an article of clothing that looks mighty familiar.
Each installment of the Fast & Furious franchise finds some way to top its predecessors, whether it’s dropping cars out of planes or driving them in, through or across buildings. The development meetings for these movies must be filled with all kinds of crazy ideas, and you can see two of those concepts play out in a couple of new videos from the set of Fast 8. If you were wondering when we might see Fast & Furious on ice, that time is now (or next spring, when the film hits theaters).
Shane Black’s The Nice Guys is currently in theaters, and while you have plenty of viewing options this weekend, making time to see his dark crime comedy should be your chief priority. While making the press rounds for that film, Black has been talking up some of his other projects, past and present, including his idea for another Lethal Weapon sequel that he never got to make.
