Fullmetal Alchemist, the story that refuses to die, will not stop until it's inhabited every entertainment medium known to man, twice. Inspired by the original manga from Arakawa Hiromu, the journey of two brothers in a fantastical world has been chronicled multiple times in animated form, to rapturous praise by many, and critical side-eyes by a few. We imagine the same will be the case when their latest incarnation, in the form of this new live-action film, comes to the big screen this December. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NRt4keIZZk I haven't seen more than a few episodes of the anime years ago (shut up, I know) but, at the very least, the film looks visually striking. The effects work is far beyond what I'd expected to see, and the scenery and costumes are all lovely. Apparentl...

The war for the Iron Throne just got a little more epic, with this fun opening credits sequence from French Youtuber Malec.

Or at least something like it. Check out the fan-made opening credits sequence here, but newcomers be warned. There be spoilers in these waters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efD3nmwF-IM I love that the music, while evoking the typical sound of classic anime openers, also adopts the style of the actual Game of Thrones theme, one of the most iconic of its kind. Interspersing Japanese lyrics with seemingly random English adds the perfect touch. Particularly the phra...

Guillermo Del Toro's giant monster mash Pacific Rim is the little movie franchise that could, still trucking after unfavorable returns in the domestic box office a few years ago. But stronger international support gives the super-robot actioner a new lease on life with director Steven S. DeKnight's Pacific Rim: Uprising. Let's check out the trailer and hope this opportunity hasn't been wasted. When word came down that Del Toro would get another chance to pit titanic Jaegers against city-stomping Kaiju, his passionate fanbase let out a sigh of relief, quickly turning to caution as it was announced that the monster maestro would not be returning to the director's chair for this project. Instead, we have DeKnight of TV's Spartacus and Daredevil taking the reigns. Let's ponder the results...

Live Action Gatchaman Video featuring SMAP

With the news that we're actually getting Live Action Gatchman, it reminds me of a time in 2000 when we thought we were getting Gatchman Live Action, but it turned out to be a set of commercials instead promoting some ISDN service starring the hip boy band of the time, SMAP. Commercial or no... they were pretty freaking rad. Hit the jump to get a taste of things to come. (more…)
