Really, maybe they were just reaching too far for Charlie Hunnam. A guy who’s already respected and got good movie roles under his belt was never going to commit to playing a fanfiction version of Edward Cullen in the hope of getting his name out there. So as Variety reports Jamie Dornan has now agreed to play Christian Grey in “50 Shades of Grey”. It just makes much more sense. Dornan will now star opposite the equally up-and-coming-but-not-quite-there-yet Dakota Johnson in the adaptation that Sam Taylor-Wood is directing (of theRead More

There are no real spoilers contained here, as Del Toro was kind enough to edit these scenes so even us journalists attending weren’t hugely spoiled by his epic sci-fi film, but if you want to go into “Pacific Rim” without knowing details about specific scenes, stop reading now! In his intro, Del Toro described “Pacific Rim” as “gothic tech.” The footage shown was extremelyRead More

It’s been five years since Guillermo del Toro‘s last directorial effort so hopes are high for “Pacific Rim“, his long-awaited alien vs. robots pic starring Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba.
