'Pacific Rim' Review

As basically a three-word genre mash-up -- monsters vs. robots -- the announcement that Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures were making 'Pacific Rim' didn't really need to offer much more than just that siren-song simple idea. But it did, promising a big canvas for a big talent, the director Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro isn't a household name -- unless you live in Austin -- but he's the outsized outsider genius behind movies like 'Hellboy' and 'Blade 2' as well as films like 'Pan's Labyrinth' and 'The Devil's Backbone.' And while counting down to 'Pacific Rim,' I had the feeling that while it was nice to have someone spending $200 million to make what my inner 12-year-old would no doubt consider the perfect summer movie, my adult self couldn't help but be suspicious of anyone who'd spend that much money on a pre-teen's idea of the perfect summer movie.

Seriously, how has FX not picked this up to series yet? Guillermo del Toro certainly has much to prove at the box office this weekend with the release of 'Pacific Rim,' but his upcoming FX pilot adaptation of 'The Strain' is proving monstrous in its own right. 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Goonies' star Sean Astin is the latest high-profile star to join the cast, but will he prove friend or foe?

Guillermo del Toro, always a busy man with about two dozen projects in development at once, has been working on an adaptation of Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' for years. And while it's not clear just yet if he'll ever realize his dream of making the film, he's apparently already eyeing his lead: Benedict Cumberbatch!

Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' hits theaters this Friday, and it's fair to say that everyone involved is a little nervous that this big-budgeted monsters vs. robots movie won't connect with audiences. So now we're getting a near-fifteen minute making-of featurette to sell the film again.

Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman have been busy doing press for 'Pacific Rim,' but there's another film the two are still talking about: 'Hellboy 3.' And if Perlman has his way, the third film in the franchise might still happen with a little help from Legendary Pictures, who co-produced 'Pacific Rim' with Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. has released two new clips for their upcoming monsters-vs-robots flick, 'Pacific Rim.' The first clip (above) is an explosive and up-close look at one of the human-piloted giant robots fighting a gigantic alien monster (otherwise known as a Kaiju), and we get to learn what an "elbow rocket" is. Hint: it's pretty fantastic. We also get to see the neural bridge in action, which is when two military pilots' brains are linked through the robot's system, allowing them to coordinate attacks with one another telepathically.

The first official clip for 'Pacific Rim' has been released, and Warner Bros. is taking a decidedly different route with promotion. Rather than focus on all the big robots-vs-monsters action we've seen in the (amazing) trailers, this piece of footage gives us a tense and intimate moment between stars Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba.

Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' looks like the fevered dreams of a kid who stayed up too late watching Japanese movies and cartoons, and we mean that as a compliment. The film is set to open in a little over two weeks, and now there's a new trailer that plays up the stakes.
