After ‘Pacific Rim,’ Here Are Some Other Monster vs. Robot Fights We Want to See

Monsters vs. Robots
Kristy Puchko

'Pacific Rim' really hit on something. Who doesn't want to see a movie that is essentially monsters vs. robots? Who?? Show us that person, they are lying. The concept is so brilliant we want to see more robots fighting monsters. If movie execs can't come up with any new ideas (which wouldn't be too surprising), here are a few suggestions.

Guillermo del Toro Interview: The ‘Pacific Rim’ Director Talks Creating the Ultimate Summer Blockbuster

Guillermo del Toro interview Pacific Rim
Warner Bros.

Leave it to a foreigner to make possibly Hollywood’s most archetypical American film of 2013, 'Pacific Rim.' Although Guillermo del Toro borrowed from Japanese monster movies and anime for his basic idea, set much of the film in foreign countries, and assembled a cast of characters that more or less defines "multiethnic" and "multicultural", he celebrates the West’s great melting pot, and its heroic traditions, with his story of monsters and the giant robots that humanity builds to fight them.

Del Toro didn’t stop there, however. His latest film, also his biggest, is a remarkably humanistic odyssey, buoyed not by an affection for militaristic power, or even the triumph of individual heroism, but the uplift of humanity coming together and prevailing, geographic and political borders be damned. We caught up with him for a substantial conversation about his latest film earlier this when, during which he offered some insights into the thematic underpinnings and conceptual foundations of this terrifically straightforward summer opus.

In addition to talking about the process of constructing a pure adventure story in an era where complicated mythologies dominate the moviemaking landscape, del Toro explored the film’s deeper, recurrent themes, and offered some insights into his creative approach as he tackles a horde of projects at one time, without any certainty when – or if – they might come to fruition.

We thought Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming FX horror adaptation pilot 'The Strain' had delivered its biggest casting with yesterday's addition of 'Lord of the Rings' star Sean Astin, but today has proven us literally wrong. Hulking 'Pacific Rim' star Robert Maillet has signed on to play the vampire thriller's major villain, so can a series order from FX be far behind?

‘Pacific Rim’ Review

Pacific Rim Review
Warner Bros.

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.
