Go big or go extinct! Mankind is fighting for our very existence in this tantalizing action flick, and the TV spot teases a premise so grand and action sequences so outrageous that they demand being seen on the biggest screen you can find.
Pacific Rim is set in on an Earth under attack by legions of Kaiju, big bad monsters that come from space, but crawl out of the ocean to unfurl mayhem upon mankind. To fight back, humans invents a weapon called Jaegers, enormous battle bots powered by two pilots simultaneously through a powerful mental link.
Because it's not based on any previously existing characters and it's not a sequel, Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim is one of the stealthier would-be hits of the coming summer season. That is, until you get a look at trailers like this one, and realize that this thing is ready to blow our socks off so long as we give it the chance
Though a haunted house thriller feels like a far cry from Chastain's Juilliard training and Zero Dark Thirty role, she's already worked with del Toro once in a spooky story, starring in this year's surprise horror hit Mama, which del Toro executive produced. Because it came out in the doldrums of January Mama didn't get a ton of attention, but it's currently the fourth-highest grossing film of the year, with a solid $127 million worldwide take on a $15 million budget
Del Toro’s films usually come with a bit of secrecy attached, so it’s really no surprise that Cumberbatch’s place within the film has not yet been revealed. He’ll be joining a cast that already includes Charlie Hunnam and Emma Stone.
Pacific Rim will be based on an original screenplay by Travis Beacham, focusing on a human response to some surprising creature attacks that devastate a few of our major cities. Where do you think that footprint comes from? Legendary Pictuers says it’s the mark of one of the many Kaiju – the name for the beasts who terrorize our planet.
Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim isn't going to be in theaters until July, but already we're getting excited for the filmmaker's next big project. Back in December it was announced that the director's next gig would be the new haunted house flick Crimson Peak, and while it's been said that the movie will work to break conventions of the genre while playing with both classic and modern elements...
Sure, this story of a lonely girl who discovers magic in the neglected garden of her uncle has been adapted several times before, but Alibar promises a new take set during the turn of the 20th Century in the Southern US. Plus, she has the endorsement and collaboration of Guillermo del Toro tied into her pitch.
Del Toro is one of Hollywood's most famous nerds, so it comes as no surprise to see all the nerdy influences that went into Pacific Rim, from naming the monsters Kaiju-- a common trope of Japanese movies and TV shows-- to basing the monster-fighters off Western heroes, right down to the sound of clinking spurs when our heroes strap into the robots
As a story full of magic and monsters, Pinocchio seemed the perfect fairy tale for Guillermo del Toro, the visionary behind Pan's Labyrinth to take on. But his Pinocchio collaborator Gris Grimly has dashed our hopes, announcing Pinocchio has had his strings cut…but not in a good way.
Guillermo del Toro has been busy this month promoting the upcoming release of the horror film Mama, which he executive produced, but naturally reporters are taking the opportunity to ask the filmmaker about the extensive number of exciting projects that he has in development.
March 8, 2011 was a hard day for film fans. After years of trying to get an adaptation of H.P.

We don't yet know just how much progress has been made on Star Wars Episode 7. Since the bombshell announcement last October that Disney had bought Lucasfilm and was planning three more Star Wars films, the only concrete news we've gotten is that Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt would handle the screenplay
In a huge week for impressive trailer releases, I'd argue that Pacific Rim was by far the most exciting, if only because the robots vs. monsters movie from Guillermo del Toro is a completely original idea. There was a lot to process in the trailer, from figuring out what these monsters are all about to getting glimpses inside the giant robots that humans use to fight them
Guillermo del Toro is having a pretty damn good week.
