It’s the kind of rumor that looks really great in a headline. What if a Pacific Rim sequel brought Godzilla, the King of the Monsters, into the fold? What if director Guillermo del Toro’s giant robots battled the legendary creature in the ultimate battle royale? The rumor has been gaining steam and we hate to be the ones to burst anyone’s bubble, but this isn’t going to happen.

Because just one movie about giant robots punching giant monsters in the face simply isn’t enough, Pacific Rim 2 is officially set to begin filming this Fall in Toronto. But that’s not the only piece of news worth sharing – it seems that Guillermo del Toro’s sequel may have a subtitle and that subtitle may be Maelstrom.

With the massive success of 'The LEGO Movie,' suddenly everyone is LEGO crazy. That's mostly a good thing, but there have been countless homemade LEGO sets of movies and we couldn't possibly show them all to you (nor would we want to - at some point LEGO fatigue starts to set in). But, this homemade LEGO build of the 'Pacific Rim' mechs was just too cool to pass along.

All week long we've been talking about the hot movie franchises turning to TV to extend their longevity, though in the case of Syfy and 'X-Men' director Bryan Singer's latest co-venture, we only need a dash of something monstrous. Singer will helm a kaiju-themed monster drama pilot for Syfy titled 'Creature At Bay,' putting a new twist on the monster destruction genre for an ongoing series.

Is the Era of the Blockbuster Coming to an End?

There was definitely something apocalyptic about the 2013 summer movie season, and we’re not just talking about the movies themselves.
While major releases, like ‘This Is the End,’ ‘Oblivion,’ ‘Pacific Rim‘ and ‘Elysium,’ dealt with the end of the world, Hollywood appeared to be on the verge of collapse out in the real world. Films that looked like surefire hits flopped; surefire disasters proved to be more disastrous than everyone predicted; the handful of films without numbers in their titles stumbled; and, from the sidelines, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas smirked, shrugged and predicted the end of the moviegoing experience as we know it.
So, what exactly happened here? More importantly, what does this mean for the future of studio filmmaking? It’s easy to imagine Hollywood looking at what happened this summer and learning plenty of lessons; but, maybe, not always the right ones.
