Who doesn’t love giant monsters? How about giant robots? Monsters fighting robots? Add in one of our greatest genre directors, Guillermo del Toro, and you have – Pacific Rim!
You can keep your Man of Steel and your Marvel Cinematic Universe part two, this is the movie this kaiju eiga fan is waiting for.
Pacific Rim, directed by the master Guillermo del Toro, and starring Charlie Hunnam from “Sons of Anarchy,” Idris Elba, and Rinko Kikuchi, opens July 12, 2013. I am sooo there.
What do you folks think?
Ah, December. The season of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa; gift giving, love, family and friendship. How nice would it be to curl up beside the fire on a cold December evening with a hot cup of cocoa in one hand and a comic book whose theme matches the good-will of all mankind in the other? Sounds absolutely lovely, doesn’t it?
So, in the spirit of the season, of peace and pristine, white, softly falling snow, ladies and gentlemen, pop culture and comic book aficionados, I offer you…hell.
Well, to be more precise, I offer you the first issue of the new mini-series, To Hell You Ride, published to (probably not) tie in with the holiday season! It’s an enticing proposition, a horror comic written and illustrated by names you’re sure to recognize, some heavy-hitters in the pop-culture world, indeed!
The confrontation between Marvel Comics’ two biggest franchises, and their two biggest superhero teams, was the event of the summer, and the do-not-miss maxi-series that changed the status quo of the Marvel Universe. Yes, the Avengers versus the X-Men – AvsX – was the big one this year.
If you missed it, or if you didn’t, there’s an amazing way to relive all the action you did and didn’t see, with this edition of Biff Bam Pop’s Holiday Gift Guide. We’ll check out the AvsX Hardcover Edition after the jump.
