The techno-speak in Guillermo del Toro’s giant robot movie Pacific Rim might take a bit of getting used to, so the director has put together this new featurette that explains some of the terms. Ever wanted to know why it takes two people to pilot a Jaeger? Want to know what a “neural handshake” is or what “drift space” means? Check out the new video to find out!
The new featurette, introduced by del Toro, features Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Robert Kazinsky and Max Martini. Hit the jump to watch it. Pacific Rim opens July 12th.
Director David Ayer’s (End of Watch) upcoming action thriller Ten just nabbed a release date, but those itching to get a look at the film anytime soon will be sorely disappointed. Open Road Films announced today that Ten will be released on January 24, 2014, which for you mathematicians out there is about 13 months away. The film is loosely based on Agatha Christie’s classic mystery Ten Little Indians, as it centers on a DEA task force who heists a drug cartel safe house, only to start getting picked off one-by-one by an unknown assassin. The impressive ensemble cast is lead by Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Josh Holloway, Max Martini (Revenge), Olivia Williams (Anna Karenina), and Mireille Enos (The Killing) rounding things out.
Currently no other film is slated for that same weekend in January 2014, but Open Road has also released a slightly new image from the film. It’s incredibly similar to the first image of Schwarzenegger that was previously released, but this photo shows the actor striking a different (though no less intimidating) pose. Hit the jump to read the press release and to take a look at the new image.
The first trailer for director Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim has been released. The story finds humans towards the end of a losing battle against giant monsters called “Kaiju.” In order to combat the creatures, humans have developed their own giant human-controlled robots called “Jaegers.” Del Toro proves in this one little trailer that there’s enough room on screen for massive robots fighting giant monsters. Bring it on!
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff. Pacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th, 2013.
Director Guillermo del Toro finally has a new directorial feature film set for release next year. He spent quite a while preparing to direct The Hobbit before leaving when he thought the film would be held up in MGM’s legal troubles for years, then he started prepping At the Mountains of Madness with Tom Cruise only to have Universal pass on the project in favor of things like Battleship. All’s well that end’s well, as del Toro recently wrapped his first directorial effort since Hellboy II: The Golden Army, a monster movie called Pacific Rim.
Little details have been known about the plot for Pacific Rim other than the fact that del Toro promises “the finest fucking monsters ever committed to screen” and the film involves battles between human-manned robots and monsters. A rumored plot synopsis surfaced back in March of 2011, and now Warner Bros. has released an official synopsis for the film that seems to confirm much of that earlier premise. Hit the jump for the full synopsis.
