Ah, hell. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry decided to drop trailers for their mega-blockbuster these past two weeks. Must be another Star Wars December. This time, it's Ernest Cline's heavyweight pop culture champion Ready Player One, the bestselling book given life via the man who helped generate a large part of the very fan fervor his sci-fi adventure sought to invoke - famed director Steven Spielberg. And with this second extended look at the film, we have a ton of new iconic characters, images, and music cues to add to the growing pile that has nerds of all ages adjusting in their seats. Among these totemic titans is the anime super-robot tearing up the skies in a battle for the Oasis. No, it's not Voltron, like so many have misidentified him as. And no, it's not the Iron Giant, though he ...

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. John Boyega of Star Wars: The Last Jedi leads the cast of world-saving pilots, but one actor that was curiously left out of much of the movie's footage shown so far was Rinko Kikuchi, whose integral character had been a welcome presence in the first Pacific Rim and whose absence was sorely felt by this viewer when the sequel began rolling out promo for its 2018 release. 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...

International action star Keanu Reeves meets his match when he comes face-to-face with the man, the myth, the legend, Sonny Chiba. While doing press in Japan, the John Wick leading man was asked about one of his personal heroes, and he began to gush about the martial arts legend, only to be shocked by the sudden entrance of Chiba himself. The result is worthy of Reeves' trademark "Whoa". Sonny Chiba became a superstar in his own right, leaping from one action role to another over the course of decades, including the classic ninja film series Shadow Warriors, which inspired filmmaker Quentin Tarantino to cast the actor as his original character's own descendant in the Kill Bill saga. Of special interest to us here at Henshin Justice Unlimited, he also starred in the 1966 Golden Bat ...
