It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is a show about five of the worst world people in the word. They are rude to everyone, shamelessly arrogant, so self-centred that they are almost entirely ignorant of the world outside their own little bubble and have absolutely no regard for the rest of humanity. The five of them collectively own and staff a grotty bar in Philadelphia called Paddy’s Pub. The show chronicles the adventures they have in the city. There is nothing appealing as human beings about any of them.
And yet they are the central focus of a show that has been running on FX – and FXX since it hit season nine – for twelve years now. (more…)
Guillermo del Toro is a busy man with a great work ethic it seems. With his recent announcement that he has finished and handed in the script for Warner Bros. tentatively proposed Justice League Dark adaptation, and having wrapped filming for his next directorial feature Crimson Peak (set for an October 17 2015 release), now – during promotional rounds for the DVD and Blu-ray release of FX’s The Strain – he has also been discussing the Pacific Rim 2 script that he has been developing (…does this man ever sleep, seriously?!). Guillermo has been elaborating on some plot details for the follow-up to the International Kaiju smashing blockbuster hit Pacific Rim, and it sound like we are going to be seeing more of Charlie Day’s Dr. Newton Geiszler, and Burn Gorman’s Gottlieb.

Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim is scheduled to be released on Blu-ray/DVD next week and we’ve got a taste of what fans might find in the package, besides a lot of giant Jaeger robots fighting incredibly huge Kaiju. Strap in, crank up this blooper reel video, and prepare to crush your funny bone like Godzilla strolling through Tokyo.
There are still some high hopes that Pacific Rim will get a sequel, not many, but there are some. One of the hopers is Charlie Day, who played one of the scientists studying the monstrous kaiju in the film, and recently he talked to CraveOnline.com about would could happen, and what he’d like to see happen, in a potential Pac-Rim 2. You can read the full and complete interview by clicking on the link, but the pertinent gold nugget can be read below:
“I remember when I first met with him (Del Toro) that he liked the idea of Newt becoming a bit of a villain in the second film. But, I think over the course of making the film, and the way the character resonated with the audience, I don’t think he would want to turn him into a villain now, but I really have no idea….Guillermo is one of these guys that his mind is so active that he might have an idea about something and then it’s a completely different idea five minutes later. I’m hopeful that we get to drive a big punching robot. I think traditionally in those comics, sometimes the science guys put together a cheap, dorky version of one of the robots so maybe we’ll get to do something like that.”
Sounds like Day wants a Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em robot version of a jaeger. There seems to be a lot of fun speculation about what a Pacific Rim sequel might entail, but it’s worth pointing out that as of this past weekend, after a full month of release, Pacific Rim 1 has yet to cross $100 million domestically. Money might still roll in overseas, but that low of a box office number for North America might be a turn off for the studio when considering any sequel talk. Maybe Day should but his ideas in a comic book of his own. Alas.
What do you Bastards have to say? Still want a Pac-Rim sequel?
