If this was on television when I was an eight year-old kid, I’m certain it would be my favorite thing ever.
The on-again, off-again sci-fi sequel Pacific Rim 2 is back from the depths. Deadline reports Legendary Pictures has hired Steven S. DeKnight to direct the film, which will be produced by the first film’s director, Guillermo del Toro.
Pacific Rim fans will know that setting any piece of tie-in material before the events of the movie usually can only end up one way: with most of its protagonists and their lovely giant robots dead, leaving Humanity’s defenders on the brink in time for the movie. The new Pacific Rim comic knows that too, and uses it…
Early in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, protagonist Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) eagerly gives a story she’s written to a publisher. But he sends her away, with the condescending instruction that ladies should really be writing romance stories, not ghost stories. She balks at the critique—not just because he’s a…
A sequel to Pacific Rim might be a long ways off, but it’s still on director Guillermo del Toro’s mind. And, he has a fantastic idea for who he wants behind the controls of a new Jaeger.
Fans who’ve been polishing their Jaeger waiting for the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film, Pacific Rim, may want to slow down. It seems the sequel, which was set for a 2017 release date, has been “halted indefinitely” and may not get made at all.
Guillermo del Toro has only made eight films. Sure, a ninth is on the way (with 10 on deck after that), but he’s become such a well-known pop culture persona, that number feels low. Maybe it’s because his movies are so rich, they stay with us long after we leave the theater.
Rumors about Scoot McNairy’s Batman v Superman character resurface again. Spider-Man may have a bigger role in Civil War than previously thought. Charlie Hunnam wants less spectacle in Pacific Rim 2. Plus, Ron Perlman still wants Hellboy 3, and Legends of Tomorrow casts a new DC superhero. Spoilers!
Everybody has influences. You can’t create without borrowing from those who went before, and building on their work. Earlier today, we saw Tarantino’s films compared with his source material. But who’s your favorite creator whose influences are incredibly easy to spot in their work?
It’s a damn good job Pacific Rim’s Gipsy Danger is such a cool robot, otherwise getting like, the billionth Gispy Danger figure in NECA’s sublime toy line based on the movie would be very annoying at this point. I mean, it still is a little annoying, but when Gipsy can look this great, it’s easy to forgive that.
During Pacific Rim’s opening montage, protagonist Raleigh Beckett briefly laments that Humanity has turned their fear of the monstrous Kaiju into the cute toys seen above. But now you can own these adorable little Vinyl figures, so honestly who cares what a fictional character thinks of them? Gimme Gimme Gimme.
We’ve known for a while that Striker Eureka would be NECA’s next plus sized Pacific Rim toy — but now that the figure is hitting shelves next week, the company have released more pictures of the toy, and it’s looking rather lovely indeed.
Pacific Rim 2 is still a long way off, but if you're hankering for some more hot Jaeger/Kaiju battles, you won't have to wait much longer: a new comic miniseries from Legendary will fill in the gap between the first movie and the previous graphic novel prequel. Update: Now with glorious High-Res art!
Ah, Giant Robots. Who doesn't love giant mechanical creations stomping around and kicking butt? Over the years there have been many badass robots and mechs that have wormed their way into our hearts, but some are just especially great. So here are our picks for the 10 greatest giant robots, ranked.
Okay, so I was wrong. Turns out that NECA will be making even more Pacific Rim Jaeger figures to complete your collection - a new poster released by the company over the holidays has given us our first look at two more Jaegers that really round out the complete collection of on-screen mechs in figure form.
Whelp. NECA's range of plus-sized Pacific Rim Jaegers - which recently launched a gorgeous Cherno Alpha - continues to endanger my wallet with the reveal of the next in line already. Behold, giant Striker Eureka!
It never fails lately. We actually get a movie that's a new story, instead of a rehash or continuation of a venerable tale. And people immediately start piling on, pointing out all the stuff in it that's been done before. But just because something contains story elements we've seen before doesn't mean it can't be new.
Oh. My. God. Just look at this Russian Beauty. Neca's Pacific Rim line continues to delight Jaeger lovers like me with a new, 18-inch tall rendition of Cherno Alpha (aka secret best Jaeger of the movie). It's... it's wonderful.
