summer 2013

Well damn.

Since San Diego Comic-Con, I’ve heard from a handful of people who got to see the PAC RIM footage in Hall H and the one word that kept dribbling out of their lucky faces was “epic” — now, after seeing the first trailer, I can only concur and weep because this film looks beautiful.

Directed by Guillermo del Toro, the movie stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, some the extra big-assed robots, and a few¬†amazing monster aliens (or alien monsters) that have come from another dimension via a portal that lives in the part of the sea where Spongebob ain’t.

What more can I say? This looks like the kind of movie that filmmakers dream about making when they’re kids and the kind of technical spectacle¬†that people get into the business to pursue.

Granted it’s only a trailer, but in del Toro’s hands, I know there will be something underneath the extremely impressive surface and I feel no need to be apprehensive or restrict the sweet, natural flow of my fanboy love and adoration.

This movie looks like it’s made of stars, I want to ride a unicorn to the screening and have the world’s first multiple orgasm solely by way of visual stimulation and I think we’re all gonna have that same reaction and experience that magic together. So check out the trailer and get your foreplay on, cause we’re cancelling the apocalypse y’all!

Pacific Rim comes out on July 13, 2013.

 

One of the big question marks amongst next summer’s movies is the M. Night Shyamalan directed After Earth, and the question is which Shyamalan will show up, the one that made The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable or the one that made Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender?

Now After Earth does have some things going for it off the top. First is that Shyamalan got help on the screenplay from the likes of Stephen Gaghan (Traffic) and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli), and secondly you’ve got the real-life father/son team of Will Smith and Jaden Smith headlining the film. The look of the film in the below trailer seems pretty epic, and I like the idea that post-apocalyptic Earth evolves to seemingly hate humans, so hopefully this is Shyamalan’s comeback, or at least not a total fuster cluck.
