Guillermo Del Toro Discusses The Scale Of PACIFIC RIM
The Hellboy director talks about his work on the upcoming kaiju film Pacific Rim, saying that much of the creation in it "having the best creative experience I’ve ever had in Hollywood".
Speaking with Total Film, director Guillermo del Toro discusses his latest film, Pacific Rim (a sci-fi epic which del Toro calls a homage to the kaiju genre). While not very in-depth, he offers some high praise for the production of the movie. "So much of the creation of the movie was having the best creative experience I’ve ever had in Hollywood," the director says.
Additionally, del Toro talks about the scale that he's working on. "When we’re talking about the physicality of the fight, we ended up building several blocks of Hong Kong. And literally demolished them. We built a building and then we took down the buildings.
"We built command centres of the robots that were the size of the house. We started them on hydraulic rigs that shoot and elevated them and moved them round so you could really get a sense of the physical nature driving a robot like this."
I can't wait to see some concept art for this film (let alone a trailer). The idea of a new robot vs. monster movie sounds fun, and with a great director at the helm, Pacific Rim is definitely one of my most anticipated films from last year.
Starring Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman and Charlie Hunnam, Pacific Rim is set to hit theaters July 12th, 2013.
