5 things we learned from Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' trailer commentary

Quote

Here are the five most interesting things we learned from his commentary.

1. According to del Toro, “[Kaiju] blood is highly toxic, acidic.” Because what building-sized monster doesn’t have toxic, acidic blood?

2. In case you were wondering just how two people can control robots the size of zeppelins, here’s everything you need to know: “The pilots wear suits that are neurally linking them. They have a spinal clamp that links their two spines, and then they have relay gel in their helmets that transmits their impulses to one another, so they move in synchronicity. And one of them is handling sort of the neural network of the left side of the Jaeger, the other one is handling the neural network on the right side of the Jaeger. And they are connected between them.”

3. This movie may fulfill the dreams of every pubescent boy in the world, but it’s not just for kids. “The idea for me is to create a movie that my head would explode if I was 12, but at the same time treat it visually as an adult movie. The texture, the color is treated very seriously.”

4. The Jaegers are international! And they have names! In the scene where two of them drop into the water, “the one on the left is the Russian Jaeger, Cherno Alpha, and the one on the right is a Chinese Jaeger, which is Crimson Typhoon.”

5. In the aforementioned scene where a giant robot coldcocks a giant monster, you catch a glimpse of some Full Metal Jacket-style accoutrements on its fist. ““You see that the tools the robot has on its knuckles are really funny. There’s a skull and a poker card.”

And just in case you weren’t already hyperventilating with excitement, del Toro closes with some first-class hype (and gives Merchant Ivory the smackdown in the process): “In all seriousness, I love this trailer, but it’s like the trailer for Howards End next to what the movie is gonna deliver.”

Sequel discussion already...

Quote
Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim won’t premiere for another few months, but planning ahead is essential for a guy as busy as he is. So he and screenwriter Travis Beacham are already looking into a sequel. “Travis and I have been working on it. We co-wrote the screenplay on this first one, and now we’re hard at work at doing the second one,” he said.

That said, he and Beacham are trying not to rush things. “We want to take however long it takes to really find out the idea and try to bridge something that really makes the mythology roll,” he revealed. “The great thing about Legendary is they’re willing to take it to completion in the right way. They’re giving us the leeway. Imagine that we’re generating the comic book. We’re learning more about the [Pacific Rim] world we’re creating day by day.”

The first Pacific Rim premieres July 12.

Not surprising to hear. It's got the potential to become a franchise, just based on the few things we have seen. What is surprising is that the studio hasn't already locked in 2 more films already.

Del Toro is not one for sequels. He's done the Hellboy sequel and has discussed a 3rd, but beyond doing the one, he's not exactly what the studios would want for dependency. But, I'm not sure what goes on behind closed doors. You know the studio would not hesitate to do sequels with or without him. But does Del Toro own the product and control those sequels?

I thought this was Del's creation. So that's why I thought it was strange that the Studio didn't try to lock him and the franchise up now rather than wait later. Maybe this is a smart move on Del's part to get a bigger contract later by holding out now.

I believe Del Toro has rather major influence in Hollywood.

Enough With This ‘Pacific Rim’ Monster Sh*t!

Quote
Because this is actually a pic of some giant monster poop, see? Also Warner Bros. may want to slow down a bit on all these images. We get it – the monsters are big. Anyway here’s another image for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. This time they’ve sent out a pic of this pile with the caption “#Kaiju excrement contaminates city.” Kaiju are the monsters in the film, which are put to bay by giant robotos built by humans played by Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Robert Kazinsky, Ron Perlman, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke. I can only imagine that we’ll be getting some robot pics once the Kaiju ones run dry.

In theaters July 12, “When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.”

Warner Bros. teases yet another image from Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. This time they’ve sent out an image of a Kaiju Skeleton with the text “We will rebuild the city around its bones.” Kaiju are the monsters in the film, which are put to bay by giant robotos built by humans played by Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Robert Kazinsky, Ron Perlman, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.

You know, I kinda agree with the excessive image posting by the studio. It's overkill and is leaving very little to the imagination. It's like you will have seen the entire movie before it even hits the big screen. That's just the nature of both the times we live in as well as the technology of Networking sites to have instant feeds. This is another reason why I tend to avoid spoilers more and more because it's all in your face now.

Wasn't referring to you. The stuff you put up is wanted. I'm talking about sites that flood it with 50 new shots every week about everything in a around one particular shot.
