The director of Another Earth and I Origins is bringing together two of today’s most popular stars for a literal star-crossed love story.
A good story of success and opportunity is a lot of fun. When that story is an immensely charming cartoon, it’s even better.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi might have ended with Rey and Finn hugging it out after spending the entire movie apart, but I’ve remained afraid that something would drive them apart again. Luckily, we can all rest easy. John Boyega has confirmed that the rebellious duo are stuck like glue from here on out.
The crux of Pacific Rim Uprising is how it handles the idea that sequels always need to be bigger. Being a sequel, the expectation is that it should include more robots, larger monsters, and more expansive set pieces. Those are certainly all in there, but at the same time, the movie is so focused on its two main…
Not only is John Boyega the star of Pacific Rim Uprising, he’s also a producer. And when io9 spoke to the film’s director, Steven S. DeKnight, he explained there was one arena in particular where Boyega really got his hands dirty in terms of producing.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits digital download March 13 and some clips have already been released online. The best one yet, by far, comes via The Star Wars Show today.
When Pacific Rim Uprising director Steven DeKnight found out that Charlie Hunnam wasn’t coming back for the sequel, everything changed. io9 spoke to the director about what exactly happened behind the scenes when he lost his star, and it’ll have fans clamoring for what could have been.
Giant robots, as we’ve previously established, are good. Multiple giant robots? Even better. Multiple giant robots fighting each other? The best.
The two Pacific Rim Uprising trailers we’ve had so far have promised more of everything we loved from the first film. More giant robots, more giant monsters, that sort of thing. But they’ve been a bit scant on something else we want more of: Rinko Kikuchi’s returning hero from the first film, Mako. This new trailer…
Our latest look at the next chapter in Pacific Rim’s robot-vs-monster punchup is here, and it’s promising to bring us plenty of new action with the film’s next generation of Jaegers. But it also gives us some more intriguing hints as to just why the Kaiju have returned, stronger and deadlier than ever.
One of the main reasons that so many Star Wars fans are so insistent on shipping Finn and Poe Dameron is the very simple fact that John Boyega and Oscar Isaac are two very handsome men. But for every Finn/Poe shipper out there, there’s someone who’d rather just voice their thirst for the actor straight up.
Gwendoline Christie and John Boyega are blood enemies in the newest Star Wars movies, but watching them alternately egg each other on and cringe with terror as they stick their hands into a box is extremely funny. “Is this a crab?!” “Is it a frog?! Is it a marble?!”
Days removed from seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I still can’t believe it’s a real movie. I can’t believe what writer-director Rian Johnson did: He took all of our preconceived notions of what a Star Wars movie is and evolved them. The movie is genuinely shocking at times—multiple times—but it also feels fully…
John Boyega’s luck with pilots is, apparently, not quite as good as the character he plays.
Captain Phasma’s exit in The Force Awakens is one of the movie’s most questionable scenes. If you’ll recall, Finn, Han Solo, and Chewbacca dumped her into one of Starkiller Base’s trash chutes, and then destroyed the planet. It was an ignominious moment for Phasma, and one that Last Jedi director Rian Johnson nearly…
The man who plays Finn thought that porgs were, like, overgrown space rats at first.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is less than two months away, and while it may seem like we know almost nothing about it, that’s not exactly true. There’s not a ton of official information about the film, but over the past year, between the trailers (including the newest one), set reports, and rumors, io9 has been able to…
Breathe. Just... breathe. The second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally here.
We knew already that Charlie Hunnam wouldn’t be returning for the sequel—but the fate of his fellow star Rinko Kikuchi was left nebulous, even as we were introduced to the next generation of mecha pilots for the sequel, lead by John Boyega. But the film’s new official synopsis reveals that Mako Mori is back in action.
Last year while the next Star Wars was filming at Pinewood Studios in London, the galaxy far, far away was visited by Princes Harry and William. Instantly, rumors cropped up that the visit was more than just a set tour—and now, it seems John Boyega has confirmed that’s the case... except we might not see the royal …
