Are You War Ready for "Pacific Rim Uprising"?

Kaijus going head to head with Jaegers. Or in non-geek speak - Monsters vs Super Machines. That was the main crux of "Pacific Rim", the otaku-pleasing, Guillermo del Toro-directed monster film that became an international hit back in 2013.

The movie had thrilling action sequences, a great chemistry between the two leads Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi, a wonderful Asian female character, fun witty repartee, and the guiltiest pleasure of all -- Idris Elba. Since then, fans (including Red Dot Diva) have been clamouring for more Pacific Rim.

In the years that followed, Guillermo del Toro tried his best to get a sequel off the ground. He had a script ready, however due to conflicts between Legendary and distributor Universal Pictures, production was put to halt. Finally, in early 2016, Legendary announced that the sequel called "Pacific Rim Uprising", will go ahead with a new director and script, with Guillermo del Toro staying on as a producer.

The new director is Stephen S. DeKnight, who is best known as the creator and writer of Starz's "Spartacus" series, is also the showrunner for the first season of Marvel's "Daredevil" TV series.

Behold! The "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" Movie Poster; New Trailer To Be Released Later Today!

The Imperial troops march closer as it is less than 60 days to the premiere of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" here in Red Dot Island.

To mark the occasion, Lucasfilm and Disney have released the official movie poster!

Red Dot Diva loves how the female character, Rey portrayed by Daisy Ridley, has a prominent image on centrestage. She hopes this means Rey gets loads of screen time!

Then, there's John Boyega's character, Finn (who's supposedly not a Jedi) is shown yielding a lightsaber. Strangely enough, the main Jedi most of us are rooting for (unless you're already on the Dark Side) is not in the poster. Where is Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill)? Is this related to the notion of a recluse Jedi Master or something else? Hmmmmmmmm.........
