The Must-Have Movie Toys of Summer 2013

toystoysHalf the fun of summer blockbusters is going to see them. The other half is getting to own pieces of them. With many fan favorites in circulation and still more to come, you better start divvying up your resources and figuring out which summer movie toys are the must-haves. You don’t want your kid stuck with the EpicRonin glider while his or her buddy next door has an Iron Man 3 disc blaster, right?

Iron Man 3

As the biggest opener of summer 2013, Iron Man 3 toys are an absolute must. As someone with a soft spot for hurling harmless foam discs at friends and family, the Iron Man 3 Gauntlet Disc Blaster is a winner. Then, to ramp up your innocent assault, slip on the Iron Man 3 Mission Mask, which not only packs the power to fire four missiles, but let’s you aim them using a targeting light beam, too.

Review: Pacific Rim

Pacific-Rim-Poster“Pacific Rim” is the quintessential mindless summer sci-fi action film and while it’s successful in that respect, it’s also disappointing because it could have been so much more.

In the near future, while we’re anticipating an alien invasion from the sky, massive monsters called Kaiju surprise us by arising in the Pacific Ocean. The first attacks are devastating, but eventually, mankind builds weapons that can beat them, the enormous Jaeger robots. The machines are operated by two pilots who connect to each other by “drifting” and establishing a neural bridge. Together, pairs of pilots keep the Kaiju invasion under control for years – that is until bigger and more vicious monsters begin arriving at an increasing rate.

Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) is a star Jaeger pilot alongside his brother, Yancy (Diego Klattenhoff), but when a Kaiju attack leaves the duo broken and their Jaeger severely damaged, Raleigh calls it quits. Five years later, the Jaeger program is at an all-time low, consistently losing robots and pilots, and failing to keep the Kaiju from demolishing cities. With so few operational Jaegers left, the program’s commanding officer, Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), must put them all to work. Trouble is, one is an older model and he needs a pilot familiar with the machine to handle it in combat and Raleigh is the only one left that fits the job description.

The Best – and Worst – Movie Trailers of the Week

Channing-Tatum-White-House-DownIt all began with 50/50The MuppetsThe Hangover Part II and Bridesmaids nearly two years ago. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of plowing through countless trailers of quality and ones with none at all so you don’t have to, and it’s been an absolute honor and pleasure. Check out the lot that earned the honor and dishonor of being part of the 100th installment of Best and Worst Movie Trailers of the Week below. Here’s to many more weeks of amusingly abysmal and exemplary trailer debuts!

The Best Stuff

1. White House Down

The White House Down marketing team played it smart by kicking off its run with an effective and rather chilling teaser that banked on the disaster-movie appeal because it essentially rolled out the red carpet for a more character-driven promo. The teaser showed what’s coming and let you feel the threat, and now the first full trailer builds upon that, showing you who’s involved and offering a general sense of what they’re up against. Should trailer two further highlight the precise threat, the marketing campaign could create quite the build ahead of the film’s June 28 release.

The Best – and Worst – Movie Promos of the Week

Oz-The-Great-And-Powerful-Japanese-PosterIt’s always nice when there’s a slew of promotional material to pick from, but with quite a few new entries setting a high bar, solid entries like the new motion poster for The Wolverine, the poster for Side Effects and this clip from Django Unchained get shafted. Check out what ousted the trio below.

The Best Stuff

1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Clip: Having seen The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and not loving it all that much, it was a wonderful surprise when this clip cropped up from my favorite scene of the film. But even beyond the fact that this encounter between Bilbo and Gollum is one of the tightest, funniest and tensest moments of the 168-minute epic, it’s also a pitch-perfect marketing tool as it features our new hero with a franchise favorite.

The Best — and Worst — Movie Promos of the Week

The-Hobbit-IMAX-Midnight-Poster“True courage is about knowing not when to take a life, but when to spare one.” You can write that one down as one of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘s most memorable quotes, but the first clip from the highly anticipated December 14 release — as well as the latest behind-the-scenes postproduction video — were both trumped by four other pieces ofHobbit promotional material this week.

The Best Stuff

1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey IMAX Midnight PostersEven as someone who isn’t a diehard Hobbit/Lord of the Rings fan, I still want one of these to hang on my wall — the Gollum one to be exact. But the best part about this quartet of posters is that they’re for some of the franchise’s most loyal followers, the ones with midnight IMAX tickets.

Comic-Con 2012: Our Most Anticipated Events

The first rule of San Diego Comic-Con is that there’s absolutely no way to get to everything. The second rule of San Diego Comic-Con (or SDCC) is … try to get to everything. And we here at Movies.com will attempt to do just that, or at the very least bring back a taste of the big events everyone will be talking about come this time next week.

What are some of those events, and what should you expect from our coverage? Click through to find out what we’re looking forward to most as the country’s biggest geek-friendly convention prepares to infiltrate our nerdy hearts later this week.

Thursday 12:45 – 1:45 in Hall H

The non-Twihards might resent this, but what bigger way to open San Diego Comic-Con 2012 than with a panel for the final Twilight movie? The very first film to grace comic-con’s legendary Hall H will be the final installment of The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 2. This will (probably) be the last time Team Edward and Team Jacob supporters will get the chance to camp outside the San Diego Convention Center for a Twilight movie, so expect the crowd to be bigger than ever. Once the crowd files in and the panel actually begins, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz and newcomer Mackenzie Foywill all be on hand, answering questions and previewing footage.
