Director Guillermo Del Toro (@GuiDelToroOffi) Wants Godzilla in Pacific Rim 3!

More monsters, more giant mecha suits (jaegers), and now The King of Monsters too! If director, Guillermo Del Toro has his way Godzilla will making an appearance in Pacific Rim 3! As you recall, Pacific Rim centers around Earth’s military trying to defend the planet from an otherworldly invasion of monsters from a portal in the Pacific Rim. The film was widely popular and successful, garnering a sequel that will be stomping its way into theaters in 2017. Guillermo feels adding Godzilla to the mix will make for an awesome film. Honestly, we have to agree. Can these mere humans in jaegers really be a match for a giant, invulnerable reptile who feeds on radiation and spits atomic energy? We think not!

The sequel to Pacific Rim, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom would be the prequel to the aforementioned third film. One has to wonder what in the second film would lead to an appearance for Godzilla in the third one Del Toro states, “So far with the sequel, what we’re writing, what we’re creating, is very different, so there are no plans. Hypothetically, I would love the fuck out of it. I would love to see a jaeger and Godzilla duke it out. That would be too much for the human brain.” We would love to see the “Man vs. Monster” action too, but honestly we are rooting for Godzilla. Then again, these humans in this film are pretty technologically savvy. Maybe they will be the ones to bring MechaGodzilla to life!?

Michael B. Jordan (@michaelb4jordan) to Star in New MGM’s (@MGM_Studios) New Superhero Movie, “Blood Brothers!”

Fantastic Four was a mess! We get it, let’s deal with it and move on just like Michael B. Jordan is–to a new superhero film. Whereas most actors would have steered away from any further superhero roles Jordan is already in talks to be Tree, from Dark Horse Comics’ Blood Brothers. As Tree he will be half of a duo of vampires, the other blood sucker being Nick. The duo are best friends with a bond that has spanned a thousand years. Tree and Nick have done everything together from smoking opium with Gengis Khan to heading a rock metal band. Naturally, with any relationship a rift forms just as a villain rises to jump start the Apocalypse. It’s up to them to pull together and save the world!

Thankfully, the only similarities between Blood Brothers and Fantastic Four is that they originate from the pages of a comic book. The former is far more humorous than Marvel’s First Family and deals with unwitting battles with the supernatural instead of traditional comic book villains. Most of Michael’s movies have been critically acclaimed hits. The disastrous nature of Fantastic Four has everything to do with the studio and script and nothing to do with the actors. Will you be going to see MGM’s Blood Brothers? Comment below!

The only thing to top an Avengers movie is a movie showing Avengers fighting each other. As you know, next year’s film, Captain America: Civil War features the epic showdown between two teams of Avengers. One team, led by Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) is pro-registration wanting all superheroes/superhumans to reveal their identities and work for the government; and Captain America (Chris Evans) leads the anti-registration heroes determined to maintain their secret identities and protect the safety of their loved ones. In the middle of this Civil War is Spider-Man, the hero who both Shellhead and Cap are fighting over. His compliance with either side signifies just how torn the superhero community is when friends and allies become foes. Surprisingly, Spidey is fighting Cap according to sources on set of the film!

“Straight Outta Compton” to a Straight Out Hit!

straight outta compton movie poster hey mikey atl

The music, the controversy, the brotherhood–Straight Outta Compton is the defining film of 2015. If you ever thought you knew all there is to know about N.W.A., then think again because this film sheds light on everything. The biopic centers around Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson, Jr.), Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins), and Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell) as they rose from obscurity, oppression, and violence in the ghetto of Compton, California to become rap icons and form a group that personified a generation. Besides learning more about each of the artists personal struggles we get to know more about other members of N.W.A. like DJ Yella and MC Ren.  The film begins with an epic drug run from Eazy-E that sets a tone for the film–do or die! As the film progresses we see each rapper follow their own paths to greatness, all the while struggling to keep their brotherhood intact in the face of fame.

The music in this film is truly epic. You really feel like you are right there with N.W.A. and their fans as they perform hits like Fuck The Police or when Ice Cube spits the ultimate diss track, No Vaseline! However, even beyond the music is the stellar performance of the actors. They were PHENOMENAL! Nevertheless, it is Ice Cube’s own son, O’Shea Jackson, Jr. AKA OMG, who steals the film. Casting for his role was dead on! He looks, acts, and sounds exactly like his famous father. We are definitely hoping to see him in more films and soon. If there was ever an homage to gangsta rap, or just rap in general, this film is it. Every single rapper who reigns on the Billboard charts today owes their success to a group of guys “Straight Outta Compton!” Be sure you see this film a good three or four times and grab their albums off Ebay. Take note Lifetime and Wendy Williams, this is how you do a biopic!
