When you're making a movie about large robots fighting gigantic monsters, a lot of your action is going to be done through computer imagery. A director like Guillermo del Toro knows the best way to sell CGI is to mesh it with as much practical work as possible. In the latest featurette on the making of 'Pacific Rim,' del Toro talks about how he approached the special effects for his giant monster movie.
To date, books, lives, records, songs, board games, video games, and coupons have served as inspirations for cinema (well, all except for the last one, that was just a 'Mr. Show' sketch). But now memes are joining that list as Grumpy Cat, the internet sensation, has been optioned as the subject for a feature film.
'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' was a done deal when the fourth film in the franchise, 'On Stranger Tides,' grossed over a billion dollars worldwide. But it was unknown who would helm the fifth entry. And instead of returning to original franchise helmer Gore Verbinski or 'Tides' director Rob Marshall, it was just announced that the job has gone to Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.
Though the advertising for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' has mostly focused on the epic battles between monsters and giant robots (which are called Jaegers), we're curious if there is more going on in the movie that just large scale smackdowns. The latest featurette allays our fears by playing up the "neural handshake" that happens between the Jaegers co-pilots.
Though Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn will appear together in 'Anchorman 2,' and Ferrell has cameo'd in a number of Vince Vaughn's films (including possibly 'The Internship'), it's been a decade since the two co-starred in 2003's 'Old School.' But now they will get some face time together as both have agreed to star in the film 'Daddy's Home.'
In one of the most public contract negotiations of the modern era, Robert Downey Jr. has let it be known that he finished his contractual obligations to Marvel and to playing Tony Stark and Iron Man. Which means his future involvement with both 'The Avengers' and 'Iron Man' will depend on how much Marvel is willing to pony up.
