Big battles promised in Pacific Rim

June 22nd, 2012 by bash Comments

Filming has begun on Guillermo del Toro’s robots vs. monsters epic ‘Pacific Rim’.

Speaking to Total Film magazine, the Mexican director said he would take the battles in the movie “far and above”.

“Two or three of them happen in places where there have never been a battle between kaiju and robots. From the bottom of the ocean to the atmosphere of the Earth. We have a battle in a storm at sea. Every battle we try to do differently. One is seen from the point of view of a single person. We never cut away from that point of view,” he said.

Pacific Rim open in July 2013 and stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Willem Dafoe, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., Diego Klattenhoff and Ron Perlman.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
