  • Pacific Rim (2013)



    Director:
    Guillermo Del Toro

    Cast:
    Charlie Hunnam
    Charlie Day
    Idris Elba
    Ron Perlman


    "This project will give the Hellboy filmmaker the opportunity to create two worlds. The first is an alternate version of Earth in the near future, decades after a historic date in November 2012 when the first kaiju, a towering Godzilla-like beast, emerged from a hole in the Pacific Ocean and attacked the city of Osaka, Japan. The second is “The Anteverse,” another universe on the other side of that gaping portal, 5 miles below our ocean’s surface. Since the first attack, the rim has been “spitting out” a variety of gigantic monsters at an increasing rate, which then stride out of the ocean and begin destroying sea-bordering cities, like Tokyo and Los Angeles. In order to combat these monstrous, otherworldly menaces, the military developed the “Jaeger” program, which trains teams of two pilots to jointly operate massive, building-sized mechanized suits of armor and high-tech weaponry."

    It ain't "At The Mountains Of Madness" but it's Del Toro making a full-on giant monster action picture. I'm down..

    Director Guillermo del Toro's upcoming Kaiju honoring monster vs. giant robot clash has started shooting this past Monday. The news comes from an interview that Del Toro had with Wired. Asked what he was working on film-wise, he responded:

    We start shooting next Monday [Eds. note: Nov. 14] on Pacific Rim, which is a gigantic production for Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros."

    Describing the film, he said:

    "We are working with actors that I absolutely adore. Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman. Itís really, itís a very, very beautiful poem to giant monsters. Giant monsters versus giant robots. Twenty-five-story-high robots beating the crap out of 25-story-high monsters. Weíre trying to create a world in which the characters are real and how it would affect our world politically, how it would affect the landscape if creatures like this really came out of the sea, etc."

    'Pacific Rim' is set for theatrical release on May 10, 2013.

          Yup. Can't wait. Way too far away, though.

            Sounds awesome, looked around for some pics, found a few, but I wasn't so sure they were real.

            I do wonder tho if as he's doing this he'll be taking notes for doing creature effects for At The Mountains of Madness

              I remember hearing that ILM gave a really impressive creature effects presentation before Universal pulled the plug.

                That's cool.

                Well, hopefully this project will somehow get us closer. This can only help point to the potential of ATMOM to studio heads.

                      I'm sold by this project like a 5-year old girl in a Thai auction.

                      Plus I'm a fan of Idris Elba's work.

                          I'd love to see Charlie pilot a giant robot.

                            Total Film had a chance to talk with the director and was kind enough to share:

                            Del Toro: So much of the creation of the movie was having the best creative experience Iíve ever had in Hollywood.

                            Total Film: What sort of scale are you working on?

                            Del Toro: When weíre talking about the physicality of the fight, we ended up building several blocks of Hong Kong. And literally demolished them. We built a building and then we took down the buildings.

                            We built command centres of the robots that were the size of the house. We started them on hydraulic rigs that shoot and elevated them and moved them round so you could really get a sense of the physical nature driving a robot like this.

                            Total Film: How did Charlie Hunnam get cast?

                            Del Toro: The funny thing is Charlie was one of my only two choices for the prince of Hellboy II: The Golden Army. I met with him. He screen tested. I loved Charlie before Sons Of Anarchy. He always brought a certain honesty. Heís the kind of guy that women will love who guys wonít hate.

                            Heís the right side of honest and good looking that you donít want to punch him in the face. You want to have a pint with the guy. You want to take him to the pub. Thereís male bonding energy with this guy that I thought was perfect for the character.

                            Pacific Rim hits theatres July 12, 2013.
