Kaiju Zig and Jaegers Zag – The gargantuan wait is finally over. Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim is crushing theaters beginning at midnight screenings tonight. What more do we need to say?

Get Stranded with Christian Slater – A freak meteor shower bombards a lunar base, an alien presence infiltrates the crew and paranoia begins to set in; this is what you’re in for from the new film Stranded starring Christian Slater.
