John Boyega Shares Sneak Peek at His Character in Pacific Rim: Uprising

Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim earned approximately $102 million domestic on a $190 million production budget. Normally this kind of performance would keep a studio from ever considering a sequel. However, the film earned another $309 million in the international box office, making it a major worldwide moneymaker.

After a couple of years of uncertainty, Legendary Pictures committed to a sequel. Steven DeKnight has taken over directing duties from del Toro, despite having previously directed just a few television episodes. The movie will introduce new characters in addition to some of the favorites who survived the events of the last film. One of those new characters will be played by John Boyega, of Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens fame. In Uprising, Boyega will play Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost from the first film. Although the movie wont hit theaters for another year, Boyega recently took to Twitter to share a quick glimpse at his character with his fans: read more

Director Doug Liman Promises a Unique Take on DC Comics’ Dark Universe Film

In an interview with IGN, director Doug Liman promised that he would approach his film Dark Universe (formerly Justice League Dark) differently than previous installments in the fledgling DC Extended Universe.  Liman told IGN that “I love those characters, and I love Warner Bros., and I love [producer] Scott Rudin, and it’s — and you know, I get asked to come in and do things that are “unconventional.” If people want conventional, they don’t come to me.”

Liman further reiterated his different approach to the supernatural heroes film stating, “So even if I wanted to be a little bit more conventional, like, the system doesn’t want me to be. But since I do treat every project as a form of a film school, “OK I haven’t done that genre and how am I going to do it and how am I going to do it in a way that no one’s done it before,” so that’s, you know, I haven’t done a comic book film, and that’s — am I going to do it in a new way that’s unlike what anyone else has ever done, and come up with a couple of rules for myself of what we’re not going to do that other people do.” read more
