Could July 12th hurry up already? Ever since that footage at Comic-Con last year, we've been filled with the same kind of geeky giddiness for "Pacific Rim" that we can imagine Guillermo del Toro has been spreading all over edit bays while assembling what could very likely be an action masterpiece.

This week: Tom Cruise proves naysayers wrong yet again in the above-average thriller "Jack Reacher," which was shot entirely in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is based on Lee Child's 2005 mystery novel, "One Shot."
Also new this week is the horror hit "Mama" with Jessica Chastain, the Nicholas Sparks adaptation "Safe Haven" with Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough and the Blu-ray 3D conversion of "Gamer" with Gerard Butler. Get More »
If we were ever in a haunted house, well, we'd want Emma Stone to be there, too.
The "Gangster Squad" beauty is set to get her horror on as she's in talks to join Guillermo del Toro's haunted house pic, "Crimson Peak," according to Variety.
Plot details are being kept under wraps on the project, which is currently being rewritten by del Toro and Lucinda Coxon from an original script penned by del Toro and Matthew Robins. The film is set to commence with production in Feb. 2014. Get More »
... with its own awesomeness.
Guillermo del Toro serves up a heapin' helpin' of giant monsters (called Kaiju, which is Japanese for "strange beast") fightin' giant robots (called Jaegers, which probably reminds you of an alcoholic beverage that its wise to stay far away from) in the first official trailer for "Pacific Rim," next summer's sci-fi action extravaganza in which the "Hellboy" director gets to play with a really big budget ... and make quite a mess while doing so (a taste of which was given by the recent viral teaser featuring San Francisco under siege by one of the beasties).

Hollywood knows a good thing when it sees it — even if it doesn't exist just yet. The powers-that-be in Tinseltown are so confident that the Idris Elba-starrer, "Pacific Rim," is going to be a summer blockbuster, they've already given a potential sequel the green light.
Yes, despite the fact that the sci-fi adventure doesn't hit theaters until next July, its sequel is already in the works. Get More »
"We've also been getting strange reports of something moving under the Golden Gate Bridge." San Franciscans, we hope you never have to hear that sentence in real life.
The first footage from Guillermo del Toro's upcoming giant aliens vs. giant robots extravaganza "Pacific Rim" has been revealed in a viral video featuring fractured images of a news report on a "Kaiju attack." A "Kaiju" appears to be the official term for "300-foot monster." Get More »
When inspiration strikes, it's time to take action. And that's exactly what Guillermo del Toro is doing.
The director was seemingly touched by Ron Perlman's recent visit to a charity function hosted by the Make A Wish Foundation for two "Hellboy" young fans (yes, Perlman was in full costume) to make their dream of meeting the comic-book character come true—so touched, in fact, that he's now hell-bent on getting a third film up and running, Total Film reports.
"I can say publicly that now we are together in trying [to do "Hellboy 3"]," the director mused. "We're going to make an effort to do it. I hope it happens." Get More »
UPDATE: All's been quiet on this project since it was first announced almost seven months ago, but now Variety brings word that "Pan's Labyrinth" director Guillermo del Toro is officially on board to direct the new live-action adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast." He was apparently originally on board only as a producer.
Emma Watson is also in "final negotiations" to take on what we're assuming is the first half of the title role, with "Bridget Jones' Diary" scribe Andrew Davis set to write the screenplay.
Really, this movie can't get here soon enough. Meanwhile, del Toro is wrapping up "Pacific Rim" at Warner Bros. and Watson is set to reunite with her "Harry Potter" director David Yates for "Your Voice in My Head." Get More »
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will soon know the horrors of raising creepy kids.
The "Game of Thrones" star trades medieval melodrama for a good old-fashioned horror show as he steps into the world of "Mama," according to Heat Vision.
Coster-Waldau joins current "It" girl Jessica Chastain in the dark yarn about a married couple who take in their long-lost nieces and nephews when they're suddenly found after living in the forest for five years. Then murders start happening and it becomes clear that there are some sinister supernatural forces at work. Get More »
Orphans: They will f**k you up. At least, Hollywood orphans will. For years, these sad ragamuffins have been a staple of the horror scene (see, of course: "Orphan"). And the latest star to fall victim to these dangerous, parentless children? Three time Oscar nominee Amy Adams.
Well, maybe: According to Bloody Disgusting, Adams is in talks to headline the upcoming big budget remake of the acclaimed 2007 Spanish horror film "The Orphanage," but nothing is yet final.
Dickens warned us about this, people! Get More »
