Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim - his Giant Robots vs Giant Monsters movie - is heading to UK cinemas on July 12th.
Previous trailers have given an idea of the epic scope of the film, but this latest trailer is much better - the action is less choppily put together, there are clearer shots of the monsters and oh hey, there's Ron Perlman! Finally I'm getting excited about this movie.
Here's the trailer, and if you want to keep abreast of all the latest info on Pacific Rim, click the link below to visit the film's official Facebook page, where there are some nifty photos (check out the "museum" pic!)
The Tower, an excellent disaster movie set in a sky scraper
Studiocanal, with the endorsement of director Robin Hardy, have launched a world-wide public appeal to locate original film materials relating to legendary horror classic ‘The Wicker Man’, originally released in 1973, in celebration of the cult film's 40th anniversary.
The now widely lauded film was released with minimal promotion in 1973 as second feature of a double bill with Don’t Look Now. The version exhibited to audiences was significantly shorter than director Robin Hardy's original vision. In what has now become an apocryphal episode in British film history, the negatives disappeared from storage at Shepperton Studios, were then allegedly used as landfill in the construction of the nearby M4 motorway, and are considered lost forever.
A special Facebook page has been created to serve as a forum for the search to continue. For further updates and to join the conversation with any news please visit: https://www.facebook.com/WickerManAppeal

Coming soon from eOne is the awesome-looking western/revenge thriller, Sweet Vengeance:
