Guillermo del Toro
It's been about four years since Guillermo del Toro and Disney announced that they were developing a film based on 'The Haunted Mansion,' the classic Disney theme park attraction, but today the director has offered an update on the long-gestating project -- and the good news is that it's definitely still happening.
We hope you like jaegers, because we're about to get hit by a huge wave of 'Pacific Rim'-related movies, TV and comics. While Guillermo del Toro announced 'Pacific Rim 2' for 2017, there's also more comic books and an animated television series on the way, the latter of which the director revealed will help bridge the gap between where the first film ends and the sequel begins.
'Pacific Rim 2' is finally on the way for a 2017 release. While the first didn't do so well in the US, it killed overseas, proving that the world does want more Jaegers. But that doesn't mean director Guillermo del Toro can't squeeze in a smaller film before then.
A few weeks ago our movie prayers were answered when it was announced that Guillermo del Toro received the green light to move forward with 'Pacific Rim 2,' but that's not all: he's also working on an animated series and continuing the 'Pacific Rim: Year Zero' graphic novel tie-in, giving us plenty of Jaeger and Kaiju adventures over the next few years. In a recent interview, the director opened up about these projects and gave some hints about what we can expect from 'Pacific Rim 2.'
Though 'Pacific Rim' only made a little over a hundred million dollars domestically, the film had not only passionate fans, but a much larger audience internationally, which helped bring the $200 million project into a place where today director Guillermo del Toro announced that 'Pacific Rim 2' will hit theaters April 7, 2017.
FX's 'The Strain' took a labored approach through development, and while the first fright-filled hour of Guillermo del Toro's vampire drama will officially premiere on July 13, we have to wonder how FX will approach the series across its three books. Now, del Toro has confirmed that the series should run a total of five seasons, while the first official clip from 'The Strain' has also made its way online!
We're just weeks away from seeing Guillermo del Toro realize his vampire vision with the premiere of FX's 'The Strain,' though you needn't wait that long for a bit of fresh blood. Go inside 'The Strain' with brand new featurettes that explore behind the scenes of FX's new vampire drama to reveal story, characters, and the world at large!
