There may be a sprinkling of cheese on that line, but with Idris belting it out, that’s go to be a contender for line of the summer. So Giant Monsters, Giant robots. You absolutely cannot have been into much Japanese film & TV, or Manga and not be familiar with the concept. From Godzilla (Gojira) to the outstanding ‘Mobile Suit Gundam Wing’ (seriously find that show if you can; it is pure quality from drama to action, to idealism. One of my all time favourite TV shows.)
“From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure “Pacific Rim.” When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.”

That Nick Fury; he’s a tricky Son of a ... Of course anyone who knows the character from either the Marvel Universe, or the Ultimate Marvel Universe, you know that he’s a man who lies 10 times before breakfast; it’s his job after all. Also, if you were paying attention in the film you’ll recall Tony Stark telling Steve Rogers that Fury’s “secrets have secrets”; not to mention Maria Hill picking upon Fury’s manipulative use of Coulson’s Captain America Trading Cards, in strategically putting blood on them to give the heroes a reason to come together. Of course the really good news is that means Clark Gregg could well be back in the films some day, oh and that Thor & stark may have some very angry words for our Nick Fury in the not too distant future. (In Ultimate Marvel, the heroes got so sick of not being able to trust Fury they abandoned him in an alternate Universe; Way harsher than just leaving him off the Christmas list!

Agent Coulson lives! Everybody’s favourite ordinary human in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, lives on in what may become a Marvel Television Universe. Clark Gregg’s “His first name is agent” Coulson was a notable absentee in the recent, and excellent, Iron Man Three. But he has proved s popular that he was given in roll in Marvel’s Disney XD cartoon ‘Ultimate Spider-Man; AND they created a character in the current Marvel comics, who works side by side with a new Nick Fury. So getting stabbed through the chest by Loki isn't all downside these days. The show all but definitely to be bought by every country in the known world, so keep your eyes peeled, wherever you are.
What it is...
“Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.”

Walking With Dinosaurs in 3D, at the Ciinema; ‘Nuff said right?
“"Walking With Dinosaurs" (3D) is a CGI action adventure set in real epic environments that breathes to life the most glorious and realistic of the dinosaur era never before seen on the silverscreen. Set 70 million years ago, "Walking With Dinosaurs" (3D) sees the birth of a baby triceratops, the smallest of its herd brought forth into a wild, unpredictable world filled with the most ferocious of predators. In this world, the young dinosaur learns to discover his innner courage as he butts head with all other dinos and predators alike. Along with his friends and family, his adventures are filled with humor and often face hair-raising challenges that each of them must face to prove their worth within the herd.”
OK so being used to the BBC Walking With Dinosaurs, and Kenneth Branagh’s mellow tones, the voiceover in this trailer is both saccharine and cloying: but it looks spectacular and hopefully will be a worthy addition to the genuinely groundbreaking Walking With Dinosaurs stable, in the vein of ‘The Ballad of Big Al.”.
