Though 'Pacific Rim' only made a little over a hundred million dollars domestically, the film had not only passionate fans, but a much larger audience internationally, which helped bring the $200 million project into a place where today director Guillermo del Toro announced that 'Pacific Rim 2' will hit theaters April 7, 2017.
All week long we've been talking about the hot movie franchises turning to TV to extend their longevity, though in the case of Syfy and 'X-Men' director Bryan Singer's latest co-venture, we only need a dash of something monstrous. Singer will helm a kaiju-themed monster drama pilot for Syfy titled 'Creature At Bay,' putting a new twist on the monster destruction genre for an ongoing series.
As basically a three-word genre mash-up -- monsters vs. robots -- the announcement that Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures were making 'Pacific Rim' didn't really need to offer much more than just that siren-song simple idea. But it did, promising a big canvas for a big talent, the director Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro isn't a household name -- unless you live in Austin -- but he's the outsize
Warner Bros. has released two new clips for their upcoming monsters-vs-robots flick, 'Pacific Rim.' The first clip (above) is an explosive and up-close look at one of the human-piloted giant robots fighting a gigantic alien monster (otherwise known as a Kaiju), and we get to learn what an "elbow rocket" is. Hint: it's pretty fantastic. We also get to see the neural bridge in action, whic
Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' looks like the fevered dreams of a kid who stayed up too late watching Japanese movies and cartoons, and we mean that as a compliment. The film is set to open in a little over two weeks, and now there's a new trailer that plays up the stakes.
When you're making a movie about large robots fighting gigantic monsters, a lot of your action is going to be done through computer imagery. A director like Guillermo del Toro knows the best way to sell CGI is to mesh it with as much practical work as possible. In the latest featurette on the making of 'Pacific Rim,' del Toro talks about how he approached the special effects for his giant monster
Though the advertising for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' has mostly focused on the epic battles between monsters and giant robots (which are called Jaegers), we're curious if there is more going on in the movie that just large scale smackdowns. The latest featurette allays our fears by playing up the "neural handshake" that happens between the Jaegers co-pilots.
Guillermo Del Toro, the director who did movies like the 'Hellboy' series, 'Pan's Labyrinth', 'Mimic' and is also releasing the exciting new 'Pacific Rim' movie soon was actually offered the director spot for 'Star Wars 7', but declined! Is he in his right mind? Well, no... But even a dummy would jump at the chance right? So, why did he turn it down?
Currently, the big Consumer Electronics Show (or CES) is taking place, and we've been hearing some interesting stories coming out of it, but the coolest thing so far is this new trailer for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim.' Though it features the same narrative and much of the footage from the last trailer, what's new is even more monster and robot mayhem.
