New Official Trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" 


Giant robots! But before you say Megatron, I highly doubt that Guillermo Del Toro will go Michael Bay on us and give us a movie that's visually exciting but half empty, plotwise. Here's what we know of "Pacific Rim" so far -- When an alien attack threatens the Earth's existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace. Starring Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi. "Pacific Rim" opens July 12, 2013. Here's the fun trailer:

Palm Springs Film Festival to Honor Helen Mirren 


The Palm Springs International Film Festival has announced that legendary star, Helen Mirren, will be honored with the International Star Award on January 5 at their Awards gala.

Truth be told, Mirren overshadowed co-star, Anthony Hopkins, and that's without make-up in their current film, "Hitchcock," where she stars as Alma Reville, the wife of Alfred Hitchcock (Hopkins).

The Palm Springs International Film Festival is happening in my neighborhood, so I'm welcoming Miss Mirren with open arms! She will join fellow PSIFF award recipients -- the ensemble cast of Ben Affleck's "Argo," Bradley Cooper ("Silver Linings Playbook"), Sally Field ("Lincoln"), Helen Hunt ("The Sessions"), Naomi Watts ("The Impossible"), and Robert Zemeckis ("Flight").
