Star Wars: The Last Jedi (NEW) and Pacific Rim Uprising Trailers
Despite all of the awards season contenders debuting to rave reviews all throughout the festival circuit, which is setting up an interesting final run to the Academy Awards, there's no movie more anticipated than the upcoming continuation of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi. During last night's nationally televised Monday Night Football game, we were given a whole new glimpse into the sure-fire box-office smash. Rian Johnson's effort follows where The Force Awakens leaves off, with Rey (Daisy Ridley) seeking out the guidance of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in order to battle descendant Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the villainous First Order to restore balance in the galaxy. You can catch the latest footage from The Last Jedi below.
Keeping up with a sci-fi theme, I was surprisingly satisfied with Guillermo del Toro's 2013 Kaiju fighting action film, Pacific Rim. While my reservations with the upcoming sequel continue to grow, mainly due to the fact that del Toro has handed the keys to producer-turned-first-time-director Steven S. DeKnight, a whole new cast of characters carry on the story in March of 2018. The Last Jedi's John Boyega helps lead a new generation of Jaegar pilots against a catastrophic Kaiju attack that threatens the fate of the world. Pacific Rim Uprising unveiled its debut trailer earlier this week and you can check it out below.
