Gridman: The Hyper Agent is back in more ways than one. Tsuburaya Productions' digital monster-fighting superhero was announced to get his own time slot on American television, then an even bigger surprise was sprung on us- SSSS.GRIDMAN, the new anime reimagining of the original Gridman was coming in the fall of 2018. Now, an official promotional video has dropped for the Hyper Agent Blu-ray, now presenting as a prelude to the upcoming animated take. Gridman served as the source material for the US adaptation, Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad, in which a group of high school kids faced Mega-Virus monsters in a digital battlefield to protect the world from electronic peril. If you were a youngling in the early 90s, you might find one or two nostalgic moments in this brief reminder. Parti...

Here's a new promotional video for Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to the original post-apocalyptic monster movie where humanity must fight off extinction with the enormous war machines known as Jaegers.

Right off the bat, director Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel's Daredevil series), who takes the reigns from creative maestro Guillermo Del Toro (The Shape of Water) for this entry, namechecks some of the godfathers of toku...

I knew I was forgetting something. Here's the trailer for the upcoming Rampage film, based upon the classic 1986 arcade game of the same title, featuring giant monsters whose objective is to survive against military assaults rightfully protecting cities from their wrath and then reduce said cities to smoldering ruin.

In this film that reads like a series of sarcastic late night tweets taken more seriously than intended after too much to drink, the former WWE wrestlin...
