    Despite disagreeing with the first half of your post*, (I tend to land on the side with director's intentions first, especially with the likes of GDT and the others you mention) this pretty much sums it up:

    Hey, fair enough.

    I guess it's just me always trying to find something positive...even if things are not going according to plan. I've never been a huge 3D fan but I'm not gonna lie - even if it's not intended to be in 3D I would still see "Pacific Rim" in that format. I'm just curious. It's a big "Transformers"-style movie and I think it could end up being a pleasant surprise (in terms of its 3D presentation).

    We'll wait, we'll see...

    Well the creatures in Pacific Rim are 10 times bigger than TF and if you want to achieve a good 3D effect you have to wait 5 minutes for the camera to move from point A to point B. It's pretty pointless. Still you guys can decide which version you want to see, 3D or 2D. Here if a movie has a 3D version then that's all we've got. I have to wait for the Blu-Ray I guess.

    This sounds better.

    Del Toro on the 3D conversion:

    "What happened was, in the weeks and months following Comic-Con, what I asked from the studio was to agree to four points that I wanted to do," he says. "The more the ILM shots arrived, the more I realized that there were only a few shots that would miniaturize. I asked the studio, number one, that we would not hyper-stereo-lize the thing. That we would not force 3D on the beauty shots. That we would keep the giant dimensions. They agreed. Number two, they agreed to something very unusual. Normally a conversion takes a few weeks. I asked to start it immediately so we could take the full 40 weeks to do the conversion. As an example, 'Titanic' took about 50 weeks to convert. The final thing that I asked that they agreed to, which was amazing, was that I asked them to give me an extra budget, which is considerable, to actually have ILM composite the shots that are CG native 3D. We're not giving elements. ILM is giving the composite in 3D from the get-go. That's a huge, huge element. Now I'm going to be involved in supervising it. What can I tell you? I changed my mind. I'm not running for office. I can do a Romney."

    From Motion Captured:
    Guillermo Del Toro's giant-monsters-and-robots movie 'Pacific Rim' kicks off viral campaign

    The first hints of the huge world the director is building are revealed

    I'm as sold as sold gets when it comes to this giant summer movie directed by Guillermo Del Toro. If you want backstory, go check out my write-up from this summer's Comic-Con presentation for the film. I'm looking forward to sharing my impressions from a set visit I did as well, but for now, it's time for Warner to kick off what looks like a dense set of viral marketing materials that are all landing today in different places.

    I think Wired has a pretty great one, and if you want to know what makes Del Toro's approach to this material special, I think a close-up examination of a blueprint for one of the film's Jaegers is a good place to start. I love that all of the Jaegers have names, that they're not just generic robots. These things have character, each one driven by a team of neurally-linked pilots who are put through hell during the combat we'll see in the film. The film imagines how the world might respond if giant monsters started to pour forth out of some hole in the middle of the ocean, and the response the film suggests is the Jaegers, giant robots that each country contributes to a sort of general world defense organization called the Pan Pacific Defense Corps.

    Travis Beacham created "Pacific Rim" as a pitch that he took to Legendary Pictures, and since then, more and more people have started building onto that world, with Guillermo at the helm of it all, encouraging people like his army of conceptual artists, or screenwriters Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, or the eclectic cast including Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Hunnam, and Clifton Collins Jr., or longtime partner in crime Guillermo Navarro. There are a lot of voices in the mix, and when you talk to Legendary's CEO Thomas Tull, he is visibly giddy about what they're making, but in the end, this may well turn out to be the most unfiltered peek into Guillermo's imagination so far.

    Del Toro talked to us on the set visit about how he would spend afternoons in childhood drawing elaborate diagrams of both monsters and robots, loving the idea of giant things with multiple chambers and parts that serve more than one purpose, and he would fill those hidden rooms inside the robots and the monsters with places for people to sit while they steer these larger things. When you look at the giant blown-up version of that blueprint, you can see that little kid is still in there, but doing it in the most professionally slick manner possible. Guillermo has become a prodigious film technician, great at directing physical effects and stunts as well as digital characters and beasties, and I think when people see the key set pieces in "Pacific Rim," they're going to see some things that they've never seen before, things that Guillermo was born to put onscreen. It's a great collision between filmmaker and material.

    It looks like Warner wants to start establishing the "reality" of the world of "Pacific Rim" through the viral materials. Take this video, for example. This is a news report set now, at the beginning of the story. The film will take place fifteen years later, after mankind has been fighting the war that entire time, gradually burning through all of the resources at their disposal. This news report reflects a world that still doesn't understand what's happening, or what's in store for them. And, no, the film is not going to look like this all the way through. This is just a piece of the larger world of the movie.

    If you explore the website that went up for the Pan Pacific Defense Corps, you'll basically find that video and a countdown clock and that's it. There's a memo that was leaked to Total Film, and it looks like they were the ones that kicked everything off with their piece today.

    Looks like we're about two weeks away from the trailer, and that's verrrrry exciting. If Warner has the right trailer in theaters along with "The Hobbit" this holiday season, they could easily lay the groundwork for this to be one of 2013's biggest movie events.

    Which it should be. Totally.

    July 12, 2013. "Pacific Rim" turns all that mayhem loose. Cannot. Wait.

    From THR:
    'Pacific Rim' Sequel Already in the Works with Writer Travis Beacham (Heat Vision Exclusive)
    Guillermo del Toro's monsters vs. robots tentpole won't be released in July but Legendary already is prepping a follow-up.
    Quote Originally Posted by Borys Kit

    The company wonít release the Guillermo del Toro sci-fi tentpole until July 12, 2013, but itís already laying the groundwork for a sequel, tapping Travis Beacham to pen the script.

    Beacham wrote the initial treatment for Pac Rim, as the project is affectionately known, as a spec script, which Legendary picked up in June 2010. Del Toro quickly became involved in its development and when his passion project At the Mountains of Madness fell apart, he made it his next picture. Warner Bros. will distribute.

    Rim centers on a defense force consisting of mechas, giant robots and their human pilots, who are fighting to save humanity from gigantic monsters invading from an other-worldly dimension.

    Sources say Del Toro will supervise the writing of the sequel script, although at this stage itís unclear whether he will direct. The filmmaker yesterday committed to helming a haunted house story, Crimson Peak, which Legendary ó wanting to stay in the del Toro business ó picked up from Universal. A January 2014 production start is being eyed.

    Starting to work on a sequel prior to the release of the original movie is becoming more common in an age when release dates often are set years in advance. Studios would prefer to wait until the first weekendís opening grosses come in before throwing another installment into development, but in cases where test scores or buzz is high, it happens. Warner Bros., for example, famously started working on The Hangover: Part II two months before the first installment hit theaters. Legendary is clearly feeling bullish that it has a franchise on its hands with Pacific Rim.

    Beacham broke into Hollywood with his 2005 spec A Killing on Carnival Row, which del Toro was at one time attached to direct (the project remains in development at Kopelson Entertainment). He also worked on 2010ís Clash of the Titans and wrote drafts of Black Hole for Joe Kosinski at Disney and penned the initial draft of Bad Robotís top secret Zanbato project for J.J. Abrams.

    He is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Hansen Jacobson.

    I'm almost too excited, but what's funny is I posted this on Facebook (as well as another forum), and I've been getting almost universal disdain. It may come off as cheesy to those who never knew about this movie, but I'm sure they will come around.

    How many of them have used the words "big," "dumb," "loud," "stupid," "CGI fest," or worst of all, "Transformers rip-off/copycat/look-alike?"
