Guillermo del Toro
As is the norm now, all anyone is talking about is the upcoming 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and its subsequent trilogy, and who will be replacing George Lucas as the new 'Star Wars' director. Just a heads up, this is all anyone will be rumbling about for the next couple years until the franchise gets off the ground, so get comfortable.
Most of what we know is speculation, especially with regards to who'll be sitting in the director's chair, but we do know who won't be getting behind the camera. The latest name to pull himself out of the race for the title of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' director is 'Pacific Rim' helmer Guillermo del Toro.
Next month will see the release of 'Mama', the latest spookfest from producer Guillermo del Toro. Starring Jessica Chastain, the film is the feature debut for director Andy Muschetti, who got his chance at the big time when del Toro saw his short film of the same name - which we now have for your viewing pleasure, complete with an introduction by Guillermo del Toro himself!
You'll be forgiven if you're still reeling from last night's trailer debut of 'Pacific Rim,' which we think we can objectively say looks utterly fantastic. If Guillermo del Toro's monsters vs. robots epic wasn't already near the top of your 2013 "must see" list, it surely is now.
The hits keep on coming from the sci-fi epic, as today we've clutched on to the new 'Pacific Rim' poster, which debuted along with the trailer on Apple. Head beyond the break to see it in full.
The 'Pacific Rim' trailer countdown is finally over. Following a teaser-filled viral campaign that began with blueprints for director Guillermo del Toro's giant robots (known as Jaegers) and ending with a nail-biting countdown to its release, the first trailer is here! And the monsters have officially awakened.
Guillermo del Toro's giant robot epic 'Pacific Rim' has been dolling out the promotional material like candy. Blueprints and viral videos (one of which actually reveals a glimpse of those giant monster Kaiju), and a new site to house all of the material recently launched to start prepping fans for the film's July 12, 2013 release.
While we have a ways to go before actually seeing the film, it seems that Legendary Pictures are pretty confident it'll perform well. In fact, they're already preparing for a 'Pacific Rim 2.' But who's on board for the sequel, and will Guillermo del Toro be back to direct?
In preparation for the first 'Pacific Rim' trailer, hitting sometime in the (hopefully) near future, Warner Bros. has recently kicked off its viral marketing campaign. Other than a Kaiju monster attack emergency broadcast video and a robot blueprint circling the web, though, not much has been revealed in terms of footage from the upcoming film. But that's changing with the next 'Pacific Rim' video, which teases an actual monster attack. So, what do you say? Want to meet one of the Kaiju?
