Two Pacific Rim sequels in the works

pacificrim8 Two Pacific Rim sequels in the works

Looks like we may see two more “Pacific Rim” flicks.

Director Guillermo del Toro told Collider that he hopes to capture enough footage for two more films when he goes into production on his “Pacific Rim” sequel.

Of “Pacific Rim 2”, Del Toro told Collider “some of your favourite characters come back, some others don’t because we have decided that we’re going to shoot ambitiously and say ‘Let’s hope we have three movies,’ so some characters come in at the end of the second, hoping that it will ramp up on the third one.”

The helmer also commented on the progress of the script for the follow up to the 2013 hit.

The Book of Life Review: Day of the Dead Story Has Us Appreciating Life

The word “marvel” comes to mind when leaving The Book of Life. The Jorge R. Gutierrez directed passion project and tribute to his family and his heritage is a feast for the eyes, ears and most importantly — the soul.

One could think seeing The Book of Life trailer, the film is painted as a Day of the Dead story, but it is so much more. It’s about love, friendship, finding one’s purpose, following your passion, family and yes, life and death.

We adore how the story is told through a narrator (Christina Applegate) who is doing her part to impart some knowledge to a group of kids taking a museum tour. She is telling the folkish tale of The Book of Life and introduces our characters while simultaneously putting its lessons in a form that makes it easy to forget we’re even getting them!

The Best of Me Review: Best Nicholas Sparks Movie Since The Notebook!

Nicholas Sparks has a certain audience for his films and they will absolutely adore The Best of Me. Since The Notebook quotes have become almost iconic since the film arrived in 2004, a wider audience that treasures that sweeping decades-spanning romance have waited for something from Sparks’ books to leap to the big screen that at least comes close.

the best of me stars james marsden and michelle monaghan The Best of Me Review: Best Nicholas Sparks Movie Since The Notebook!

They have it with The Best of Me. It is by far the best page-to-screen effort from the North Carolina romance writer since Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling fell in love and made their mark on movie history.

As projected, Sony’s WWII drama “Fury” won the box-office weekend thanks to solid reviews and of course the presence of Brad Pitt and, to a lesser extent, Shia LaBeouf doing the mea culpa rounds on the talk shows, talking about his 2014 arrest and all his crazy antics on the set of David Ayer’s WWII movie. But projections were far off ($ 30 million and up) and “Fury” could only rake up $ 23 million in its opening weekend. It’s a good figure for a 2014 drama released in October, but for Brad Pitt, it’s not even in the top 10 of his best openings. International numbers have not yet hit for “Fury.”

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Fury’ Rages Into First Place

fury box office 630x420 Weekend Box Office Report: Fury Rages Into First PlaceSony

Brad Pitt‘s new World War II drama ‘Fury‘ opened at number at the box office and has officially defined what this October has been about: long, R-rated movies featuring huge movie stars bucking the usual trends and out-grossing their family friendly competition. Between this and ‘Gone Girl,’ it looks like grown adults are heading to their multiplex more than ever these days.

Film Weekend Per Screen
1 Fury $ 23,500,000 $ 7,406 $ 23,500,000
2 Gone Girl $ 17,800,000 (-32.6) $ 5,479 $ 107,069,000
3 The Book of Life $ 17,000,000 $ 5,537 $ 17,000,000
4 Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day $ 12,039,000 (-34.4) $ 3,899 $ 36,871,000
5 The Best of Me $ 10,200,000
$ 3,474 $ 10,200,000
6 Dracula Untold $ 9,889,000 (-57.9) $ 3,410 $ 40,735,000
7 The Judge $ 7,940,000 (-39.5) $ 2,644 $ 26,843,000
8 Annabelle $ 7,925,000 (-50.0) $ 2,754 $ 74,127,000
9 The Equalizer $ 5,450,000 (-44.8) $ 2,409 $ 89,170,000
10  The Maze Runner $ 4,500,000 (-39.7) $ 2,088 $ 90,837,000

‘Fury’ didn’t open quite as well as ‘Gone Girl.’ Still, $ 23 million for a pitch-dark and nihilistic war drama is nothing to scoff at, especially since the film cost a surprisingly modest $ 68 million to produce. We’ll see how it does in the weeks ahead, but unless audiences completely and totally reject it, it should end up doing fairly well in the long run.
