Guillermo del Toro's giant robot epic 'Pacific Rim' has been dolling out the promotional material like candy. Blueprints and viral videos (one of which actually reveals a glimpse of those giant monster Kaiju), and a new site to house all of the material recently launched to start prepping fans for the film's July 12, 2013 release.
While we have a ways to go before actually seeing the film, it seems that Legendary Pictures are pretty confident it'll perform well. In fact, they're already preparing for a 'Pacific Rim 2.' But who's on board for the sequel, and will Guillermo del Toro be back to direct?
In preparation for the first 'Pacific Rim' trailer, hitting sometime in the (hopefully) near future, Warner Bros. has recently kicked off its viral marketing campaign. Other than a Kaiju monster attack emergency broadcast video and a robot blueprint circling the web, though, not much has been revealed in terms of footage from the upcoming film. But that's changing with the next 'Pacific Rim' video, which teases an actual monster attack. So, what do you say? Want to meet one of the Kaiju?
Have you, like us, been counting down the days and minutes until you can catch a glimpse at Guillermo del Toro's monsters-versus-robots epic 'Pacific Rim'? Today brings you the news that you don't have to do the counting down on your own - the film's official site can do it for you, and we've found out just when we'll be seeing some footage from this most anticipated film.
The viral campaign for the Warner Bros. release has begun with the opening of the site, as well as a few minor goodies that will help immerse you into the surreal world of the blockbuster. Check 'em all out after the break.
Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' has become one of the most anticipated big releases of 2013 despite/because of how mum everyone involved been. We know it's about Earth assembling an army of giant robots to combat an invasion of massive monsters and since it's a del Toro film, we know it will look amazing, but other than a few shots of the cast and a tantalizing teaser poster, Warner Bros. has been pretty quiet. Although the trailer for 'Pacific Rim' should arrive with 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' our first real look at the robots in the film may have arrived, hidden away in a video about del Toro's production company.
Studios are hitting this weekend's New York Comic Con fast and hard with new marketing materials, like this cool poster for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim.' The film doesn't hit theaters until next summer, but this new poster can hit your wall by Sunday.
A few weeks ago, we received the news that next summer's highly-anticipated monster movie 'Pacific Rim' would be getting the post-converted-3D treatment from Warner Bros. Some would call that a disheartening revelation, as the list of movies that have been post-converted well is a short one. Director Guillermo del Toro even initially displayed trepidation about it, but he has now seemingly come around on the matter, recently breaking down why we shouldn't expect the worst.
What if James Cameron made 'Jurassic Park'? What if 'The Brave Little Toaster' were getting a live-action update? What if there was an 'Entourage' movie? And what if Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' were in 3D? The answers to these nutty questions in this week's Dose of Ridiculous!
To date, we haven't seen much from 'Pacific Rim' and Guillermo del Toro wants to keep it that way. He had some footage to show the Comic-Con 2012 audience but said he has no plans for that footage to go public and that after Comic-Con, the film will go into radio silence until 2013.
