Trailer Watch: Pacific Rim trailer #4

A new trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim is online, and it continues to look epic. This one gives us a little more of the human side of the story — and also a bunch of new mecha-on-kaiju action.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day. It opens on July 12th.

Multiplex for iPhone and iPod touch has been submitted to the App Store!

I’m incredibly pleased to announce that version 2.0 of Multiplex for iPhone and iPod touch has been submitted to the App Store for approval. With any luck, it will be available next week! In the meantime, you can always check out the Multiplex app page for more details (or to get the current 1.0 version, to see how they compare when the new one arrives).

Thanks to all our beta testers for contributing their time and opinions while we developed this new version of the app: LynxAenslade, Jay Beane, Andy Edelheit, Scott Grandt, Jacob Hitze, Aaron Khoo, Kaylee LaMonde, Jay Malone, Adam Payne, Kevin Rubin, Melissa Savage, Alexandra Smith, Frank Sugino, Tom Spendlove, and Rob Wilson.

Trailer Watch: In Saturn’s Rings teaser

So you’re a NASA nerd, I hope? Then watch this:

In Saturn’s Rings is a “non-profit art film that takes audiences on a journey of the mind, heart and spirit from the big bang to the near future via the Cassini-Huygens Mission at Saturn.” Using a technique developed by filmmaker Stephen van Vuuren, In Saturn’s Rings uses hundreds of thousands of still images manipulated to create the illusion of full motion, with massive amounts of detail.

The film features music by Ferry Corsten, William Orbit, and Samuel Barber, and it will be presented in both IMAX 6K and 4k in Spring 2014.

YouTube has it in 4K, if your screen is that big.
