Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM Will Be Released In 3D
The latest film to receive a 3D post-conversion is Warner Bros. Pictures and Guillermo del Toro's science fiction film Pacific Rim, which will feature robots battling giant monsters.
Well, this was expected. With the ever-growing international market, Warner Bros. Pictures have decided to release the Guillermo del Toro-directed film Pacific Rim in both 3D and 2D theatres. This should play well in international markets where 3D is in high demand right now. It's a safe studio move, especially for a big budget epic like this one. Thanks to Borys Kit from The Hollywood Reporter for the info.
Starring Charlie Hunnam (TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Idris Elba (“Thor”), Rinko Kikuchi (“The Brothers Bloom”), Charlie Day (“Horrible Bosses”), and Ron Perlman (the “Hellboy” films), Pacific Rim will be released on July 12, 2013.
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.
