Ultraman Geed is back. Just a few months after the giant hero series aired its final episode, we return for one last battle with Asakura Riku, the young son of the villainous Belial, as he fights to protect the world he now calls home from the rampage of alien monsters. And here to light a fire under his shiny, silver exterior is none other than Kurenai Gai, the harmonica-playing wanderer best known as the title hero of 2016's Ultraman Orb. Let's do this. https://youtu.be/vioFksgzeY8 Now, as much as I try to get hyped on Geed again, I have to say that it made me laugh a bit to see him quickly reduced to a self-doubting kid again after the events of his own series, apparently leading to Gai stepping in to give him a pep talk about what must be done. Gai is kind of the bigger draw here...

It's Hammer Time. Bringing the Joe Kelly graphic novel to life in splendid form, I Kill Giants summons up a gaggle of monsters ready to ransack the small town young Barbara Thorson (as in "Son of Thor") calls home. Not if she has anything to say about it. A coming-of-age tale set against the imaginative backdrop of monsters and magic, from Danish Academy Award-winning filmmaker Anders Walter, crafting this tale from a script penned by the comic series' original writer Joe Kelly. Any dedicated comic book fan is likely to have come across Kelly's words at some point in their time as readers, as his fingerprints are all over the scene. From Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Deadpool over at Marvel, to Superman's Action Comics, Wonder Woman, and Justice League of America. If it flies...

Who says the big, scary monsters always have to take the L? Special-effects action director Kawasaki Minoru disagrees, and in this comedic flick, he sets about telling the tale of a world obsessed with the fictional television heroism of Outer Man. The superhuman giant battles enormous kaiju to save the world from their uncanny evils to the wonderment of adoring tokusatsu fans everywhere, but then something extraordinary happens. Outer Man, who was only a TV character, suddenly appears in the real world. But instead of protecting mankind, he'd rather be a prick and destroy it. The actors of the Outer Man TV show must band together to fight this new menace or die trying. I guess. This wacky premise that sees the heroes transform into a monster to stop the Ultraman-esque figure from wre...

Pacific Rim: Uprising is almost upon us. The bright and sunny sequel to the dark, rain soaked Guillermo Del Toro original is set to rally the troops for an all-out brawl against the other dimensional Kaiju, who have returned to the post-war-torn world believed to have been saved from their monstrous wrath in the last installment. Just like at a top online casino, Alas, too much popcorn is on the line to say goodbye to the giant beasties and their eternal enemies, the robotic Jaegers with their shouty human pilots. Among them this time is John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) who carries the torch after the departure of his character's father, portrayed last time by Idris Elba. Boyega leads a cast of mostly fresh faces including Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, and Adria Arjo...

At long last, he arrives. Ever since the Godzilla franchise branched out, sending the atomic lizard on a rampage through the landscape of animation with Toho Studios' new anime film trilogy, international kaiju fans have wondered when they were going to get a chance to see his first outing, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters for themselves.

Infini-T Force takes the next step in its continuing adventures, reintroducing a beloved character from the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman series, whose awesomeness can clearly only be contained by the sheer enormity of a movie theater screen. Tatsunoko Productions' television crossover event, combining the universes of four of their classic animated hero series into a single narrative, Infini-T Force has summoned up the lead characters of Gatchaman, Hurricane Polimar, Tekkaman, and Casshan, dropping them into a unified battle against evil, but until now, few of their former allies have been allowed more than a passing mention. Joe the Condor makes his triumphant return in 3D animated glory with the upcoming Infini-T Force: Farewell Gatchaman, My Friend. And with a title as ominous as t...
