Pacific Rim trailer

Visually, this seems interesting. Pacific Rim strikes me as being very close to Evangelion (a worldwide anime phenomenon, for those not in the know) but remade, Hollywood-style, to be close to Battlefield Los Angeles and Skyline. Is that a good thing? Well, when it was released I thought Skyline was possibly the worst movie I saw that year…

I’m willing to give Pacific Rim a try though – it has a good cast and it’s hard to argue with giant mechs!

Jack the Giant Slayer – trailer

Coming next year, a live action adventure retelling the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk, but – as with many recent reimaginings – saying that if you think the well-worn story is the truth then “You don’t know Jack”. It’s directed by Brian Singer and Ewan McGregor in a starring role so it should be worth a watch. No news on a release date yet.

What’s your favourite Ewan McGregor film? Do you think you’ll see Jack the Giant Slayer? Answers in the comments.

Gotham High trailer (it’s a parody)

When I saw this I couldn’t help but chuckle. I’ve heard parallels drawn before between characters that actors have played in previous films and their roles in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. This parody trailer just confirms how true those theories could be, and how well the characters could have worked in another time, another place.

Anyway, watch, laugh, spot the references and let us know what you thought.

Doctor Who Christmas Special

Last night, on the BBC’s annual Children In Need telethon, we saw the first glimpse of this year’s Christmas episode. The Doctor has retired and is living in Victorian London… but as ever the end of the world is just around the corner. And who’s that girl bearing a striking resemblance to Oswin from Asylum of the Darleks? We’ll have to wait and find out.

As has become tradition with Children In Need there was also a ‘minisode’, this time giving a little backstory and fleshing out some characters we’ve seen before. My guess is that they’ll be important in the episode itself. Both videos below…

So… snowmen… thoughts? Will you watch the episode this Christmas? Tell us in the comments.

The Prototype – Trailer

Not sure yet exactly how big a release this will get. and the biggest actor attached to it is Joseph Mawle (Game of Thrones, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter) but the trailer name-checks Ray Kurzweil and his Singularity concept so I thought it was worth sharing. At worst, it’s a bad sci-fi film with a cyborg. At best… it could be so much more. It’s due for release in 2013 so keep an eye out for it.

World War Z Trailer

More zombies today, and like Wednesday there really are zombies in New York – at least in Marc Forster’s upcoming film based on Max Brooks’ best-selling book.

Anyway, enough talk, here’s the trailer.

What did you think? Is World War Z going to be next year’s zombie success story? Share your thoughts in the comments.
