Despite being sued by Warner Bros. for their rip-off version of The Hobbit, 'The Asylum' haven't let that deter them from doing the same to Pacific Rim. However, let's be fair. It doesn't REALLY sound all that similar, right? "When giant monsters crawl out of the Atlantic Ocean and attack the Eastern Seaboard, the US Government is forced to trust A.I. robots to defend the country," reads the synopsis. Oh. Definitely a rip-off then! If you're interested, Atlantic Rim will more than likely hit DVD either before or just after the release of Pacific Rim in theatres this July.

Asylum is a front for a drug operation. It's the only logical explanation.

Black Sea Rim for you progressive folks.
sameoldthing - 5/15/2013, 5:28 AM
It stars that washed up actor from Baywatch..David Choke-a-cheese,ahh..can't remember the last name & who cares,he's weak.
Also,Treach from Naughty By Nature is the token black dude.."You Down With OPP?"..other people's property meaning the creators of Pacific Rim!
jimoakley666 - 5/15/2013, 5:28 AM
Noooo. Really? How the hell can they get away with that shit? Seriously. That's shocking.

And the (complete lack of) quality... You'd be ashamed, surely. Look at those 'cockpits'. Filmed in a garden shed, on an exercise bike with some lights and a 90's computer monitor. And the sound... Their voices sound like they were recorded with a baked bean can on some string.

The people who made this should just shoot themselves. And that is no overreaction. If you had a dog that was that lame the [frick]ing vet would put the poor bugger down.

That doesn't look half bad....it looks all bad
I'm not very litigious but this company needs to be sued out of existence

I'm making a knock-off version called: Back Yard Pool Rim
It stars two old Transformer toys vs. a garden snake..& David Hasselhoff.
I paid him in cheese burgers..& vodka.

Hey, it doesn't look that bad.

And they got Graham Greene, Oscar-nominated for Dances With Wolves, and he loved blowing things up on the Red Green show!

This is the same company that does all the cheap rip off movies. It should air on SyFy network. The also did Transmorphers and Thor.
RorMachine - 5/15/2013, 5:56 AM
The best porn parody title I've ever heard was The C~nt Of Monte Cristo. Genius.
jasonicus - 5/15/2013, 6:01 AM
The Asylum has no class. My God this company. Most of their movies are made after seeing a trailer. Case in point, their Cloverfield rip-off. Low class losers.
Godzillafart - 5/15/2013, 6:02 AM
If you're going to have rimming, it might as well be shameless rimming.
Greengo - 5/15/2013, 6:03 AM
jasonicus - 5/15/2013, 6:03 AM
After actually watching the trailer, they will be sued for this, too. It's pathetic.

LOL "The Asylum presents...". They think they have good brand recognition.

Why.

I'm not going to bash it or anything. I just want to know why anybody would be willingly involved in this.
nordberg - 5/15/2013, 6:22 AM
It's pretty amazing how there's now a whole industry for these kind of films (called "mockbusters").

They make a killing by getting their dreck on the video shelves at Best Buy, etc. at the time of the original's release, counting on grandma to make the mistake of picking it up as a birthday present for little Jimmy, thinking it's the real deal.
