The praise already is pouring in for Gareth Edwards’ upcoming Reboot of GODZILLA. Toronto was lucky enough to host a Premiere for the Action-Adventure filmed in British Columbia and coming-in to support the Blockbuster was none other than the Director himself!
Those of you who have walked by Yonge x Elm Streets these past few days might have noticed an eye-popping disaster-themed installation courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures Canada. The smokey street-level Exhibit which had Torontonians Instagramming away, simulates a Subway crashing into the concrete and a Helicopter on-the-scene.
Following a round of Interviews in the rain, Edwards was a great sport greeting Fans, regardless of the weather and fielding Media questions before heading-off to the Premiere at CineplexYonge & Dundas. The Film sees the Father-Son Duo of Scientist Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) and his Son, Lieutenant Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) teaming to investigate the Janjira collapse. Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn and Elizabeth Olsen round-out an extremely talented Cast.
See the Trailer below:

In case you were wondering, the Installation will be around till this Sunday, so don’t forget to check it out and use the Hashtag #GodzillaTO!
UNIVERSAL PICTURES CANADA and MR. WILL WONG are thrilled for the first time to give you the chance to win one of 5 Admit Two Passes to the Advance Promo Screening of KICK-ASS 2 on Wednesday, August 14th 7:00PM at SilverCity Yonge & Eglinton.
We were there on-set last Fall as Kick-Ass 2 filmed in our City and we couldn’t be happier to take you to see the Action-Comedy first! Read about it all here.
Official Synopsis below:
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our Hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur Superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) — reborn as The Mother F %&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.
When we last saw junior Assassin Hit Girl and young Vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal Teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first Superhero Team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire — leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school Mean Girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-Mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.
Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil League and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his Dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
Kick-Ass 2 stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut,
John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and Jim Carrey.

Universal Pictures Canada releases the amazing Kick-Ass 2 on Friday, August 16, 2013.
Although it’s not quite exactly the news we’re all waiting on, this will do for now! Nowhere Boy Director/Visual Artist Sam Taylor-Johnson, has just been announced as the Director of upcoming Erotic-Romance 50 Shades of Grey. The hotly-buzzed Film Adaptation of the Bestseller by E.L. James is still being scripted and the Author took to Twitter today to announce: “I’m delighted & thrilled to let you guys know that Sam Taylor-Johnson has agreed to direct the Film of Fifty Shades of Grey.”.
Several Actors and Actresses have been named to be in the running for the coveted roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, a Business Magnate and Student whom are – pardon the pun - bound initially by their highly dominant/submissive sexual relations. We’re all still eagerly awaiting the casting choices for the Universal Pictures Production.
We had the pleasure of meeting Tayl0r-Johnson in Toronto last Fall as she accompanied Husband Aaron at the Premiere of his Film Anna Karenina. Lovely Woman. She was actually incredibly shocked anyone wanted a Photo with her!
This looks absolutely hilarious! Shot in Toronto, this brand new Red Band Trailer for Kick-Ass 2 has just surfaced! We were among the first to spot casting addition Jim Carrey(Colonel Stars and Stripes) filming in Toronto and here we can finally see him in all his sadistic glory! See Hit-Girl (Chloë Moretz) really kick some ass!
Watch the Trailer below:
Universal Pictures releases Kick-Ass 2 in Canada on August 16, 2013.
Just in-time for the Holidays, David Beckham launches his brand new Winter 2012 Bodywear Collection for H&M. Including in this Set are padded Longjohns, a Towel, Lounge Shorts, Henleys and a must-have Hooded Bathrobe (seen above). As is the case with any Post about David Beckham, Visuals are necessary and he has never looked better. See the Collection here. I personally own a few items from his last Collection and they are the most comfortable things ever!
Also in Toronto recently to support her Husband Aaron Johnson who was here both for TIFF 2012 and also filming Kick-Ass 2, British Artist/Director Sam Taylor-Wood (both whom I had the pleasure of meeting!) recently filmed a Campaign for H&M‘s Maison Martin Margiela Collaboration. The Collection launches Thursday, November 15, 2012 and Toronto’s Eaton Centre will be among the Stores carrying it for a limited time.Click here to watch the Video shot on a deserted Paris Street. Amaze.
With filming set to wrap in a couple days for Kick-Ass 2, traffic came to a standstill this evening as filming blocked-off one of Toronto’s busiest strips between Eaton Centre and Yonge x Gould. Onlookers gave Canadian Funnyman Jim Carrey a Hero’s Welcome Home as he appeared barely recognizable as Colonel Stars, filming scenes with Co-Star Aaron Johnson who stars as the titular Protagonist. Also on- set tonight were Robert Emms who stars as Insect Man and Oakville’s Lindy Booth as Night Bitch.
Click here to read about my experience with Johnson, who was out and about at TIFF for Anna Karenina with his Wife, Sam Taylor-Wood.
Kick-Ass 2 promises to continue the epic Feud between Kick-Ass and Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) as the latter vows to torture everyone associated with Kick-Ass in this Sequel. Stars John Leguizamo and Chloë Moretz (who has been here all Summer filming Carrie) just wrapped the other day, already having head home.
Watch a couple short Snippets I took of Carrey and Johnson interacting earlier:
Universal Pictures will be releasing Kick-Ass 2 in Canada on August 16, 2013.
Garnering tons of praise already is Anna Karenina from Director Joe Wright. The Romantic Drama starring Keira Knightley premiered earlier this evening at VISA Screening Room and although Knightley was keen on staying to watch the entire Film, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson both skipped-out for a Dinner Break. Law zipped through a few Autographs, declining Photos citing “If I take one Photo, I’ll be here forever doing this.”. And he was firm about it.
Definitely at the top of my list of People to meet at TIFF 2012, Aaron Johnson is one of Cinema’s brightest Rising Stars. After winning much praise for his work on Kick-Ass and also Nowhere Boy, the Actor is set to begin production also on Kick-Ass 2 in Toronto. Johnson attended the Premiere of Joe Wright‘s Anna Karenina earlier this evening at VISA Screening Room. Although Fans caught a glimpse of him and his Partner, Director and Artist Sam Taylor-Wood‘s arrival at the venue, few were able to get close. Johnson did however make it up to Fans signing-up a storm of Signatures upon leaving for a quick Dinner break with Taylor-Wood, as Co-Star Keira Knightley stayed to enjoy the Film.
