With healthy overseas grosses making the idea of a 'Pacific Rim 2' seem possible, it's time to start wondering where director Guillermo del Toro might take the storyline, and Charlie Day has a few interesting tidbits for us to consider.

One of the most talked-about movies of the summer is 'Pacific Rim,' which seemed like the ultimate fanboy movie leading up to its release but has failed to light up the domestic box office (despite plenty of enthusiastic notices from movie geeks and critics alike). However, thanks to a surge in overseas box office (particularly China), the film just may end up getting a sequel, against all odds. But would you want to see it?

'Pacific Rim' wears its influences on its sleeve a blazing badge of honor, never once hiding the fact that much of the world on display in the film is a tribute to Japanese kaiju movies. So, it's not surprising that footage from Guillermo del Toro's wonderful science fiction action movie can be successfully recut into an a trailer for an old school 'Godzilla' movie. And while it's not surprising, it's still really damn cool.

Brilliantly manic but decidedly unimposing, Charlie Day doesn’t seem like the most obvious actor to be cast in a sweeping sci-fi opus like 'Pacific Rim.' But in Guillermo del Toro’s new film, Day is perfectly cast as a fanboy scientist who is as fascinated by the gigantic monsters that are attacking humankind as he is determined to stop them. He not only serves as some much-needed comic relief in the film, but provides a human counterpoint to the monolithic heroics of his co-stars, while occasionally providing a few details that become crucial to the plot.
We sat down with Day to talk 'Pacific Rim,' where the actor discussed the challenges of squaring off against one of those megaton monsters – and revealed it was pretty easy, even when they weren’t actually there. Additionally, he talked about tackling different sorts of acting challenges, in particular his openness to take on roles that push him outside the realm of comedy that he’s already conquered.

'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.
