Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" Plot Details

Posted: March 12th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Guillermo Del ToroSubmit Comment
It was recently confirmed that Guillermo Del Toro has abandoned "At the Mountains Madness" to direct the "Pacific Rim" monster movie. Now, thanks to NewsInFilm, we have plenty more details about the PG-13 film, including why it was once assumed to be a "Godzilla" reboot.

The site writes:

"This project will give the Hellboy filmmaker the opportunity to create two worlds. The first is an alternate version of Earth in the near future, decades after a historic date in November 2012 when the first kaiju, a towering Godzilla-like beast, emerged from a hole in the Pacific Ocean and attacked the city of Osaka, Japan. The second is 'The Anteverse,' another universe on the other side of that gaping portal, 5 miles below our ocean's surface.

Since the first attack, the rim has been 'spitting out' a variety of gigantic monsters at an increasing rate, which then stride out of the ocean and begin destroying sea-bordering cities, like Tokyo and Los Angeles. In order to combat these monstrous, otherworldly menaces, the military developed the 'Jaeger' program, which trains teams of two pilots to jointly operate massive, building-sized mechanized suits of armor and high-tech weaponry.

The STUDIO is once again profiting from Natural Diasters and fears the world is taking into 2012.

He better do Mountains of Madness sometime

"At the Mountains Madness" seem like a better fit for Del Toro.

Already got the title for the porn parody-Pack-cific Rim Job. GDT doesn't have to scout locations...Japan is already for cameras to roll...that sh*t was like 2012...only not boring!

Universal bales becase you woun't make at the moutains of maddness pg-13. and now you turn to this, a mech vs monster movie that is pg-13? that sounds like a run of the mill weak ass plot.

Sounds pretty much like Neon Genesis Evangelion.

"japan - the new atlantis"

Maybe, but I don't think anyone will be talking about Japan 12,000 years from now.

"The second is 'The Anteverse,' another universe on the other side of that gaping portal, 5 miles below our ocean's surface."

Isn't there, like, I dunno, a mantle or a core or something down there instead? Just sayin'.

Ok guys I'll be the first to say loud what you all already know. That hole will be Lohan's vagina. No CGI needed.

Just so everyone knows, even though it's painfully obvious, the 'anteverse' is not to be confused with the 'antiverse'.

Ante means, basically, 'before', or 'prior to', which impies that the creatures comeing out this...hole are somehow primitive, or similar to the beasts of HP Lovecraft's stories, The Old Ones, or something like that, and they, the writers, simply grafted on rather pedestrian anime tropes and whatnot.

Also, it harkens back the idea that the 'lost world', a place of primitive and frightening creatures, lurks at the center of the earth, aka Jules Nerne's original 'Journey to the Center of the Earth'.

Not that anyone on here cares about such things.

Sounds awesome. And with del Toro board it's bound to at least watchable.

It sounds like absolute sh*t, but that's cool. Del Toro is just going to quit like always. The only thing he's actually working on is the buffet.
