Unused Insect-Like Kaiju Concept Art From Pacific Rim is 2500 Tons of Awesome!

Pacific Rim featured some pretty insanely designed monsters known as Kaiju. From Knifehead to Slattern, each one had a unique look and personality. From the mind of Guillermo del Toro and his creative team, many concepts were brought forth but sadly not all could have been created on-screen. Some went to be the antagonist for the spin-off comic series and others remained as nothing more than epic concepts on sheets of paper. Below ...

How Pacific Rim: Maelstrom could differ from the original!

Guillermo del Toro's 2013 science fiction extrvaganza Pacific Rim may not have amassed as much profit at the box office as production company Legendary Pictures may have wanted, but the severly underrated movie had a lot more going for it than at first seems apparent. While Godilla and Kaiju fans may relish in seeing impossibly gigantic creatures fighting each other amidst manmade landscapes, a portion of average audiences struggle to suspend eno...

Pacific Rim: Maelstrom going a very different route claims director Guillermo del Toro!

Guillermo del Toro is currently promoting his latest film, the epic gothic romance Crimson Peak; a movie that is very much a showcase for the mexican director's unique style, much in the same way that 1992's Batman Returns was a tour-de-force of director Tim Burton's unique style. Another movie that exuded del Toro's unique style was 2013's premature foray into the Kaiju movie genre, Pacific Rim. Never before in western cinema has a director been...

Pacific Rim 2, Guillermo del Toro's sequel to his 2013 sci-fi mecha-Kaiju mash-up (codenamed Maelstrom) was originally set to release August 4th, 2017.

Guillermo del Toro's epic 2013 Jaeger vs Kaiju science fiction extravaganza Pacific Rim, while being one of the more original and fun science fiction movies of recent years, didn't quite make the impact in worldwide box office sales as Warner Bros. would have preferred; only amassing a $411 milion income against a $190 million budget. When compared to Godzilla 2014's figures of $529 million in box office sales against a budget of $160 million, it...

The film was moderately successful, amassing over $411 million in worldwide box office takings. The fact that it took a while to accumulate those earnings and the possibility that it could have earned considerably more at the box office had it fol...

Pacific Rim Star Wants More Character and Less Kaiju in Pacific Rim 2

Charlie Hunnam (who stars as Raleigh Becket in Pacific Rim) recently spoke about Pacific Rim 2 and his regrets regarding character depth in the first film. It's interesting that he's finally spoken up about the new film seeing as he's yet to be confirmed; given his casual vernacular it seems that the return of Gypsy Danger's pilot is intimate. However, Hunnam wasn't too keen on being upstaged by giant monsters and his bipedal vehicle: “Wh...
