In an interview with The Guardian auteur Guillermo Del Toro spoke about his upcoming film Crimson Peak (hitting cinemas on Friday), and his inclination to work on more films like that, rather than pursuing Pacific Rim 2 or Justice League Dark both of which have been in developmental Hell at their respective studios. “What I can tell you quite safely is, I don’t intend to keep on doing big, giant Hollywood movies for much longer. ‘Crimson Peak’ is a great permit for me to work on a smaller scale. I mean, it’s big for a drama, but it’s a much smaller undertaking than ‘Pacific
Guillermo del Toro just tonight released a video message confirming that Pacific Rim 2 will be arriving in 2017. In more surprising news, the director confirmed a Pacific Rim animated so is coming!
Pacific Rim was the big monster movie of the summer. Power Rangers constantly shows teenagers with attitude battling giant monsters. It’s only natural that these two properties finally come together. Take the jump to watch Pacific Rim done in the style of the Power Rangers opening credits sequence.
From the first trailer of Pacific Rim audiences understood that they would be watching a movie heavy on visual effects. Not every element can or should be digitally placed within a film, so VFX company Rodeo released a video detailing what exactly was VFX and what was real for their scenes in Pacific Rim.
Press Release Monsters and robots go head to head when the action-packed spectacle “Pacific Rim” from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures arrives onto Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD on October 15 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Aliens don’t come from space, instead massive bloody monsters, or “Kaiju”, invade through a dimensional rift deep in the Pacific. In response we build massive bloody robots, or “Jaeger”, to beat up the Kaiju, and defend the planet. Throw in a few paper thin characters, plus a hint of plot, and you have Pacific Rim.
Humans have always been fascinated by the possibility of enormous monsters and killer robots. Countless movies, like the recent Pacific Rim; along with comics and yes, even songs have been written on the subject. So I have decided to once again force popular internet meatbags George Chimples and Rodrigo Lopez to count down the best of the best. And the Machines better come out ahead… OR ELSE!
The giant robot fighting monster movie is here! As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. Did you go see the movie? What did you think? Spill the beans in the comment section below and let everyone know if this movie hit it out of the park, or if the flick should be forgotten forever.
I’ll be completely honest – I have no idea or desire to learn more about Minecraft (mainly because I’ve reached the limit of what I can do and get done in a regular day), but I do get a kick out of those who take the time to force pop culture into the land of blocks.
Guillermo del Toro’s next film, Pacific Rim, is just around the corner (or a couple months out yet) and I know I’m seeing it as soon as I can. If you are still unsure though, the new trailer, which is just beyond the jump, gives some more to the story and should convince you that you want to watch it.
