Guillermo del Toro
The 'Pacific Rim' footage that played Wonder Con was finally released online today, and we can't get enough peeks at Guillermo del Toro's upcoming, very epic robots vs. monsters flick. Instead of rewatching the trailer over and over, we decided to compile the best 'Pacific Rim' GIFs created from the most awesome moments in the trailer.
'Hellboy' and 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army' were only modest successes by the standards of superhero movies, grossing $99 million and and $160 million respectively, so the demand for a 'Hellboy 3' doesn't seem particularly high. However, according to Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman, a third film needs to happen.
We heard the first major piece of news to come from FX's Guillermo del Toro adaptation of vampire novel series 'The Strain' the other day, namely that 'House of Cards' breakout Corey Stoll would take the leading role. Now, as the series moves closer to pilot production, former 'LOST' showrunner Carlton Cuse has cast his first island alum, tasking Kevin Durand (Martin Keamy!) with a major new role. Get a taste of 'The Strain' inside!
Just yesterday we were wondering what had become of FX's Guillermo del Toro-helmed pilot 'The Strain,' after HBO announced their own del Toro project 'Monster,' and now we have our answer. 'House of Cards' breakout Corey Stoll has been tapped as the lead in the project, but will the vampire series move forward beyond its pilot order? Hear what FX has to say about a live-action 'The Strain' inside!
While some movies are keeping themselves super secret (ahem 'Star Trek Into Darkness'), 'Pacific Rim' has no bones about putting its giant monsters and giant robots on display in a giant way. Case in point: this brand new 'Pacific Rim' poster with a giant robot making his way down a city street.
All eyes are on acclaimed horror director Guillermo del Toro to deliver in this summer's monster blockbuster 'Pacific Rim,' as well as our continued interest in FX's adaptation of 'The Strain,' but del Toro's next 'Monster' project might be somewhere in between. The 'Pan's Labrynth' director has reportedly teamed with HBO to develop a series based on beloved Naoki Urasawa manga series 'Monster,' but is the concept too out there even for HBO?
Guillermo del Toro's ('Hellboy,' 'Pan's Labyrinth,' 'Pacific Rim') latest venture into the horror genre -- well, as a producer anyway -- was with the Andy Muschietti-directed 'Mama,' and it's hitting DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, May 7. Don't got the money? It's cool, we have five copies on Blu-ray.
