In the near future, a portal to another universe opens up five miles beneath the surface of the Pacific, leading to the emergence of myriad monstrosities that relentlessly assault such chaos-magnet metropolises as Los Angeles and Tokyo. To counter the threat, the military develops high-tech mechas to battle the creatures.
The movie looks set to be a homage to the Japanese kaiju genre of movies, most famously exemplified by the Godzilla series. In an interview with Wired, del Toro described the movie as a “very beautiful poem to giant monsters,” as well as prominently featuring “25-story-high robots beating the crap out of 25-story-high monsters.” He also stated that the film would deal with the political and geological ramifications of the sudden appearance of such creatures.
Filming on Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim has now been underway for over six weeks at Pinewood Toronto Studios, taking up five of the complex’s seven soundstages.
In an interview with io9, del Toro revealed that initial filming was for the Hong Kong-set complex where the mechas are maintained and will continue at the studio until April.
Pacific Rim will star Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, and del Toro stalwart Ron Pearlman, and is set to begin its rampage through cinema screens on May 10th 2013.
I’ve added 3 scans from the winter 2009 issue of Hog Magazine into the gallery. I only just recently found the scans and realized I did not have them, so here they are. 🙂
Be sure to check out the article, as it is worth a read.

I’ve added over 800+ captures of Charlie from the first 4 episodes of season two of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ into the gallery. I’m going to do these differently than I did the first season, so instead of all at once I will be uploading them in three sets. You should expect the next batch of captures soon! 😉
– Season 2 > Screen Captures
I’ve added 3 behind the scenes photos courtesy of the Official Blackbird Twitter page and 1 still from the film featuring Charlie alongside Blackbird co-star Olivia Wilde.
According to the Blackbird IMDB page the film is slated for a November release.

AN: I hope you all like the new look of the site and gallery. I would love to hear what you think!
#1: Sons of Anarchy
Your first hint on this should have been the fact that I did a Top 8 Sons of Anarchy episodes list last week. Like Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy has always been able to up the stakes season after season. However, where there were a coup[le slight dips of quality in some of the middle seasons of Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy has managed to improve itself every single season. This season the cards were laid out with Clay finally being set up as the villain, and even though we knew he had to die, he survived. Not only that, he survived in a way that made sense and didn’t stretch credibility. The only potential flaw you can find in this show, which has been much talked about and in my eye amplified simply BECAUSE critics need something to pick at, is the storyline with Juice’s racial secret, something which seemed a wee bit frivolous from the get-go but played out just fine overall. The performances are the best the show has ever seen; standouts are Katie Segal, Charlie Hunnam, Maggie Siff and especially Ryan Hurst. This is, flat-out, the greatest show on television and even if you don’t dig it, you have to respect it.
Sons of Anarchy is helping out a huge charity event called “The BootCampaign”. The Boot Campaign is all about showing support and appreciation for the American troops, both past and present. The Campaign also raises awareness of the challenges that the troops not only face during training and at war, but it helps people become more aware of the challenges that these heroes have after protecting their country; such as emotional, mental, and physical issues.
