    Ron Perlman Joins Guillermo del Toro On Pacific Rim; Production Begins!

    Ron Perlman Joins Guillermo del Toro On Pacific Rim; Production Begins!

    Principal photography on GuillermodelToro's Pacific Rim begins this week in Toronto. Wired caught up with del Toro before cameras started rolling, where he revealed a few details.


    After Guillermo del Toro's announcement of his upcoming monster vs robot epic, the film finally enters principal production. And a new member joins the cast, here's what del Toro had to say:

    "We start shooting next Monday on 'Pacific Rim'," says del Toro, "which is a gigantic production for Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. We are wrapping production on a smaller, very powerful horror film called Mama, which I am producing. Chuck and I are working on a series of books that I can't talk too much about. But we started on that about two weeks ago. I'm still working on animation at DreamWorks. I'm keeping myself pretty busy."


    The director also spoke about the film's cast, confirming that del Toro regular Ron Perlman has signed on.

    "We are working with actors that I absolutely adore," he continues. "Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman. It's really, it's a very, very beautiful poem to giant monsters. Giant monsters versus giant robots. Twenty-five-story-high robots beating the crap out of 25-story-high monsters. We're trying to create a world in which the characters are real and how it would affect our world politically, how it would affect the landscape if creatures like this really came out of the sea, etc."


    When an alien attack threatens the Earth's existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace. Pacific Rim is set for May 10, 2013 release.

    Guillermo Del Toro Fields Questions About Pacific Rim And The Hulk Television Show

    Guillermo Del Toro Fields Questions About Pacific Rim And The Hulk Television Show

    GuillermodelToro has a number of potatoes in the oven but arguably the biggest potatoes are his ambitious mecha monster rumble flick, Pacific Rim and his involvement with theHulk's return to TV.

    Source: io9

    Speaking to io9, Del Toro fielded questions about the current status of Pacific Rim and the Hulk television show.

    Following up on discussions about del Toro's novel and graphic novel, The Strain, io9 asks him to elaborate on putting his personal spin on the monster movie genre with Frankenstein and Pacific Rim:

    Del Toro: The reality is that it comes not from a goal, but from the fact that I'm fulfilling my bucket list as a kid.

    Del Toro goes on to open up more about how Pacific Rim is progressing:

    Del Toro: Very good, we're at the end of our second week. We are shooting everything for the main complex in the movie, which is a huge complex in Hong Kong where the robots are maintained. We are doing that, while building downtown Hong Kong streets.

    Del Toro then shifted focus onto the upcoming Incredible Hulk TV show for ABC and it's progress:

    Del Toro: Very good. We delivered the screenplay to the network. I have a very specific idea of how to do it, and we're waiting for the green light. We know all the iterations of the Hulk pretty good. We've read all the essential stories, and we're then riffing on that. There are so many incarnations and ideas. Jeph Loeb — who did a good run [on Hulk: Grey] — is involved, and I love Peter David's Hulk. But there's really no part in that mythos that we don't know, so we are trying put our own personal spin on it.

    The Q&A closed Del Toro discussing what's currently inspiring him:

    Del Toro: I really enjoyed Drive and [director Kim Ji-woon's] I Saw The Devil, which is absolutely insane and brutal. I recommend it for the not faint of heart.

    Del Toro previously described the monsters in the film, Pacific Rim to be "Huge" and stated that the film involves them traveling through a vortex in the pacific rim where they attack major cities and humans must battle them by using mecha suits called Jaegers. He commented,"This is my most un-modest film, this has everything. The scale is enormous and I'm just a big kid having fun."

    Rinko Kikuchi Discusses Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM

    Rinko Kikuchi Discusses Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM

    The lovely Japanese actress provides a brief update on Guillermo del Toro's Mecha vs Monster sci-fi blockbuster, Pacific Rim. Graphic City aka Mark Julian - 1/11/2012


    Source: Collider


    Rinko Kikuchi is kind of a well kept secret in Hollywood. She's the first Japanese actress to be nominated for an Academy Award in 50 years for her turn as a deaf-mute teenage girl in 2006's Babel. Kikuchi is also one-of-five actresses in the entire history of the Academy Awards to be nominated for an award as a result of a role in which she does not speak a word. However, she'll be in the mainstream spotlight soon thanks to upcoming roles in 47 Ronin and Pacific Rim. Speaking to Sheila Roberts of Collider, Kikuchi revealed the following tidbits about her experience [thus far] shooting Pacific Rim:


    Who do you play in Pacific Rim? Can you tell us what kind of role it is?

    KIKUCHI: "I play a pilot of a robot. This is my first big action hero role. She’s really tough."

    Do you get to do a lot of action scenes?

    KIKUCHI: "Yes! I’m so happy [to do that]."

    What is the coolest part about making Pacific Rim?

    KIKUCHI: "Everything. My character is really tough. I’ve never played this type of character before. It was a completely new experience for me. I can’t stop thinking about this character, but in a really good way. It’s good for me to have fun. Making this film feels like fun and not work."

    What’s it like working with Guillermo del Toro?

    KIKUCHI: "I’m so happy to work with him. Every moment, he was so happy with the cast and with this shoot. He makes me happy each day when we finish shooting. If he’s happy, then that means I’m happy. I’m completely enthusiastic about this character and working for him and making this movie."

    What is it like filming in Toronto? How much more shooting is left?

    KIKUCHI: "It’s still going on. We’re just in the middle of the shoot. Right now, I’m shooting in Toronto until April with Guillermo."

    There's more from the exotic beauty over at Collider, including a brief update on Keanu Reeves' 47 Ronin, a film that I am personally, eagerly anticipating.

    Anorexic doesn't look good on asian women, i like a little meat on them. If I can see the shape of their skull its a turn off....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Fake Tokyo Set For Monsters Vs. Robots Movie PACIFIC RIM (Video)

    CBC News has just posted this great behind-the-scenes video giving us our first look at Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. A film that will pit giant monsters versus humans in giant robot suits. One such place that an epic battle will surely take place is Tokyo. There will be plenty of destruction, but for this film the the real city won't be used, as Toronto will be disguised to look like Tokyo.

    Mailboxes with Japanese characters appeared in downtown Toronto on Tuesday.Mailboxes with Japanese characters appeared in downtown Toronto on Tuesday. The directors spared no details in giving the streetscape an authentic look, everything from fake metro station signs to plastic cherry blossoms attached to the trees. - CBC News

    The reason is obvious: they have robots in the movie for each of the places they hope to market it. I'm surprised Europe doesn't have at least one.

    ...

    I did a search for "Euro robot" and got the following:



    I can understand why it's not in the movie.

    My only hope for the movie stems from its director: Guillermo Del Toro. He does good stuff.

    Pacific Rim Currently Sitting At Strong 84% on Rotten Tomatoes

    Pacific Rim Currently Sitting At Strong 84% on Rotten Tomatoes

    It seems as if the Guillermo del Toro helmed sci-fi blockbuster has become a hit with critics, with many raving it as being an unforgettable spectacle that heightens the bar for cinematic destruction and demolition in film.

    Whilst early with only 45 reviews, it does seem likely that Pacific Rim will hold steady with a fresh score by the time all reviews have been counted, again, with a current score of 84% on the Tomatometer and an Average Rating of 7.8/10.
