Guillermo del Toro‘s a busy man these days; his new series The Strain has been enjoying a lot of positive feedback on FX, and he’s currently filmming his next big screen effort Crimson Peak. But because fans have long memories, we also want any and all details on stuff that might be developing, no matter how early, about upcoming work, like the sequel to del Toro’s 2013 hit Pacific Rim. Pacific Rim 2 was a surprise announcement last month, because a lot of the discussion about it till then was geared more towards the speculative. But now it’s full steam ahead, and while talking about his current projects, del Toro let slip a bit of detail about what might be coming, and where it might take place, in Pac Rim 2. (more…)
Guillermo del Toro took to Reddit two days ago for a little question and answer session with fans of all his crazy works. This outing included another round of “When is Hellboy 3 coming out?” For del Toro to have revealed plot details (below), let’s just say things aren’t looking too hopeful. What’s standing in the way of this film’s future? Read on through to find out. (more…)
Also, do you like details? You’re in luck! Here’s something close to that… sort of! On the show this week, Jeremy and Jason discuss: (more…)
It’s official: The sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s kaiju/mecha megahit is set for release in approximately 3 years. (more…)
Though many would consider a follow-up to Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim to be a no-brainer, the truth of the matter is that the movie just didn’t impress the production company enough to warrant them jumping right onto a second installment. There’s been plenty of talk of a Pacific Rim 2, but so far no definitive confirmation. Either way, del Toro is confident enough in the sequel’s approval that he’s been working on the script for some time now. (more…)
Deviantart artist Warriorking4ever, like a lot of us, wanted to see Godzilla take on one of Pacific Rim‘s Jaegers, so he worked up the picture above. It was only a matter of time until one of the very creative video geeks on the Internet put together a mashup video pitting those two giants against each other. Wanna see them duke it out? (more…)
Hot on the heels of Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim and just before Gareth Edward‘s Godzilla reboot comes Enormous, a new web series from Machinima based on the Image comic series of the same name by Tim Daniel and artist Mehdi Cheggour. We’ve got the nine minute teaser here. (more…)
The awards season is a great time to see some of the behind the scenes work that goes into the movies we love. ILM and other visual effects companies often release visual effects reels to the awards voting community to show exactly how much their work impacted the overall movie. We’ve got three visual effects reels for Pacific Rim and Star Trek into Darkness from ILM for your viewing entertainment. (more…)
It’s the end of the year, and you know what that means: lots and lots of Best and Worst lists! True, but it also means that awards season is just around the corner. Today, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, AKA: the people who give out the Oscars, announced their short list of 10 potential nominees for the Best Visual Effects category, and you’ll notice a definite nerdy trend amongst the ten films that will be vying for that golden trophy early next year. (more…)
Let’s start by saying that Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim was the pure definition of a popcorn movie. Mindless meaningless fun meant to dazzle and entertain without asking the viewer to get to invested into it. The kind of movie you just sit back, relax, turn off the higher functions and enjoy; right? Wrong. We are nerds and that is not what nerds do.
Get ready to nitpick!
The fine folk over at CinemaSins have turned their acerbic wit to the giant-robo-on-giant-monster epic to compile nine minutes of the movies most egregious errors. Truth be told, it is really hard to argue with some of these (and personally I loved the crap out of Pac Rim,) check it out for yourself after the jump. (more…)
