John Boyega To Star In Pacific Rim 2

John Boyega has long since proved he knows something about battling odd creatures, be it in Attack The Block or a little film he appeared in last year called Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So he's got the credentials to fight Kaiju in the Pacific Rim sequel, and producer Guillermo del Toro has picked him to play the son of Idris Elba's Stacker Pentecost.

Yes, though we don't yet know what memorable monicker he will be sporting – Cashier Pentecost, keeping up the supermarket theme? – he'll be the new movie's leading man, under the direction of Steven S. DeKnight, who was selected by del Toro when he opted not to return to the big chair.

"I am very proud and happy to welcome John into a fantastic sandbox," says del Toro. "The Pacific Rim universe will be reinforced with him as a leading man as it continues to be a multicultural, multi-layered world. ‘The World saving the world’ was our goal and I couldn't think of a better man for the job."

Occasionally known as Pacific Rim: Maelstrom (though that's potentially just a working title,), nothing much has been revealed about the film's plot, aside from the fact that we can expect more monster-bashing and perhaps a deeper exploration of the creatures' realm. Several writers including Jon Spaihts, Zak Penn and Derek Connolly have been at work on this one, and DeKnight should be rolling his cameras later this year.

Boyega is part of the cast for tech thriller The Circle, and has been back at work as Finn on Star Wars: Episode VIII, which Rian Johnson is guiding towards a December 2017 berth.

#TombRaider Official Trailer

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.



Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her Dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t b…

COOK-OFF! Trailer Starring Melissa McCarthy

Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary COOK-OFF! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize. The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot.



Costarring a cast of improv geniuses including Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Gary Anthony Williams, and Sam Pancake, the zesty COOK-OFF! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.
