Guillermo Del Toro Says Pacific Rim 2 Is Still In Development

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23767:]]

Contrary to an earlier report from last Thursday that stated Pacific Rim 2 has been shelved, the sequel to the 2013 film is stated to still be in development.

Following a report by THR, Guillermo Del Toro took to Twitter today to state Pacific Rim 2 is still being worked on.

“[Pacific] Rim 2 cancelled? Don’t believe everything you read. It’s still going and I’ll remain [with] it in one way or another!” Del Toro tweeted.

Guillermo Del Toro was originally supposed to start production on Pacific Rim 2 following Crimson Peak, but Universal Studios recently removed the movie from their schedule leading to the speculation it wasn’t happening. In addition, Del Toro is said to be in talks to direct the Fantastic Voyage remake, which only added to the thought that Pacific Rim 2 was all but done for.

The good news is not only has Guillermo Del Toro put the rumors to rest, but the Chinese have purchased Legendary Entertainment; Pacific Rim did well in China, so as THR notes, that may mean the sequel is more likely.

Pacific Rim Japanese Trailer Now Online With Guillermo Del Toro

A Japanese trailer for Pacific Rim has been released with an introduction from the film’s director, Guillermo Delo Toro.

The WonderCon footage has also been released which you don’t want to miss.

Pacific Rim opens July 12th, 2013, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman.

Synopsis:

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes – a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) – who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Pacific Rim Kaiju Feces Contaminate Cities! (Image)

A new image has been released for Pacific Rim, the Guillermo Del Toro movie starring giant monsters vs. giant robots.

And the latest image has it that the feces of the Kaiju are just as deadly as the monsters themselves!

This actually makes sense as Guillermo Del Toro recently said that the decomposing dead bodies of the Kaiju actually melt cities. Seems their insides do, too.

Check out the Kaiju extrements for yourself. Talk about a bomb going off…

Included with the pic: “Kaiju excrement contaminates city.”

Pacific Rim: New Batch of High-Res Images

Below you can check out a fresh batch of high-res images from Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim.

Del Toro talks to USA Today about the movie offering that the setting takes place about 15 years after the first gigantic Kaiju monster first appeared, and offered the following about them.

“They are evolving, they are becoming bigger, stronger and smarter, and it’s a very tough war,” Del Toro said.

And regarding the Jaegers, the massive mechs that mankind builds in response to the Kaiju, Del Toro says they are built to destroy.

“They’re essentially destruction machines. One of the things the movie tries to do is evoke an incredibly rousing sense of romantic adventure — the big adventures you’d want to see as a kid,” Del Toro said.
