ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic-book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis
'Pacific Rim' is easily one of our most anticipated movies of 2013. An epic "Robots vs. Monsters" movie directed by the mad genius Guillermo del Toro, it's truly looking like the highlight of the summer movie season packed with all kinds of expensive blockbuster goodness. One sign that 'Pacific Rim' is going to be something special is a new character poster that doesn't highlight any of the human cast, but rather one of the film's many gigantic robots.
'Pacific Rim' didn't have a 2013 Super Bowl trailer but that doesn't mean you can't get a new look at the film today. We've got seven hi-res new images from the film that show off some of the film's giant robots and the humans behind them. Time to get excited.
The decisions of directors often impact their colleagues, especially when they're working in close proximity to similar material, so it makes sense to think that perhaps Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' influenced Steven Spielberg's decision to place 'Robopocalypse' on indefinite hold. However, this "hold" may not be what it seems, according to recent statements by Spielberg.
Currently, the big Consumer Electronics Show (or CES) is taking place, and we've been hearing some interesting stories coming out of it, but the coolest thing so far is this new trailer for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim.' Though it features the same narrative and much of the footage from the last trailer, what's new is even more monster and robot mayhem.
Since you have nothing better to do than finish making the holiday rounds this week, why not amuse your clicking hand with a new installment of Scene Shuffle? You know the drill, ScreenCrush mashes up a movie image and it's your job to put it together in the fastest time possible before someone else does.
This time around, you're gonna tackle one of the 'Pacific Rim' posters. Guillermo del Toro's giant robot epic took the internet by storm when the first trailer debuted on Apple a few weeks back along with a couple posters, but one slipped through the cracks.
You'll be forgiven if you're still reeling from last night's trailer debut of 'Pacific Rim,' which we think we can objectively say looks utterly fantastic. If Guillermo del Toro's monsters vs. robots epic wasn't already near the top of your 2013 "must see" list, it surely is now.
The hits keep on coming from the sci-fi epic, as today we've clutched on to the new 'Pacific Rim' poster, which debuted along with the trailer on Apple. Head beyond the break to see it in full.
The 'Pacific Rim' trailer countdown is finally over. Following a teaser-filled viral campaign that began with blueprints for director Guillermo del Toro's giant robots (known as Jaegers) and ending with a nail-biting countdown to its release, the first trailer is here! And the monsters have officially awakened.
