I hope this becomes the new STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. Though I know it won't because the last one was twice as bad as that movie and still didn't get laid into the way it deserved.

Pacific Rim is So Good.

Fuck your entire (points at Shaun) thing.

C'mon, you gruesome son of a bitch.

2017 is a long long time away. I'll bet you good money this won't happen.

Haha, you people are going to be denying this right up until the theatrical release, aren't you.

Probably even after.

Its only 3 years.  Some movies take over a decade.

 

I'll take that bet. 

 

SECOND MOVIE WILL BE BEST!

Sure it will.  No reason why it won't.  

post #19 of 386

This will happen, but if there were one reason why it wouldn't it's because it's a Guillermo del Toro movie.

post #20 of 386

I just hope they keep the "Giant Robots punch Giant Monsters" motif.

post #21 of 386

I hope they ditch the monsters. Have it be about some Nation/organisation who have used the Jaeger tech to build an army that will lay everything to waste. There will only be a few of the old classic Jaegers back to defend but they are all in museums with their weapons disabled. Wait, that sounds familiar...

post #22 of 386

No giant monsters for the giant robots to punch? 

 

WHAT'S THE POINT OF THAT!?

You're sad that TDKR got deservedly assraped on here for being a bloated and dour piece of shit that stank so bad that not even extremely fake Michael Caine tears could save it.

 

PR is pure monster kid fun. Something that you will never understand while you brood in the shadows and wallowing in the cold, joyless existence that Nolan has forced upon you.

post #24 of 386

Gott damn.  That's a little harsh.

You're a little too obsessed with that movie aren't you?

post #26 of 386

Damn headless!  *drops mic on keyboard*

 

 

I really need to revisit this this weekend.

It's fun example to use because it's such a waste of time. Like a really talky Transformers movie.

$1,084,439,099 + 88% =

 

 

Pretty sure I'm not the one that's sad over it.

At The Mountains of Madness was greenlit with a crew hired and everything and was cancelled at the last minute.

 

Its unlikely to happen to DelToro twice, but he may just be that unlucky.

Just imagine the next 20 years of quality *snicker* DC Comics movies we'll be getting because of it.  

 

I'm happy you're not sad.

I'm sure they'll make sure it's bland enough so the foreign audience eats this up. Cause they know damn sure 'Merica don't care.

Yeah, but Legendary tends to get it done.  Tull has wanted a sequel for at least a year and was just waiting on Del Toro.  The only reason this doesn't get done is if Del Toro doesn't want to do it.

But we got Pacific Rim from the fallout of that failure.  That's a win. 

 

Sure I feel bad for Del Toro for not being able to make his passion project but he rebounded with an immensely enjoyable movie.

post #34 of 386

This is happening because of GODZILLA, not PACIFIC RIM. Legendary owns both and are probably hoping for an eventual crossover, because that's what movie franchises are now.

ATMOM was never, ever greenlit. Del Toro got a development deal and funding for some pre-production work, which included location scouting. But he never got a full go-ahead from the studio. It was a weird situation.

 

This situation is much different.

I doubt that. Would require an enormous ret-con to both franchises.

That's still a big loss. I would've greatly preferred At the Mountains of Madness which we'll now probably get in about a decade modernized and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

post #38 of 386

One man's loss is another man's gain.

 

We didn't get an awesome H.P. Lovecracft Cthulu movie.  But we did get an awesome Giant Mech vs Giant Monster movie.

 

Win!

I'm not sure if it can.  Godzilla is still a Warner\Legendary joint and PacRim is Universal\Legendary.

You may yet see Mountains. I cannot say more.

I'm still shocked that studios balked on Cameron and GDT?   That alone blows me away. 

post #47 of 386
So far this week has consisted of me getting some things I've been working on taken care of, hitting a patch of inspiration on several hobby projects, making plans to get together with relatives I haven't seen in a while, seeing more excellent promos for Guardians of the Galaxy, getting a surprise phone call and date with a gal I've been trying to get to know better for months, hearing the announcement of Pacific Rim 2, and now learning that there's still a chance I'll get to see At the Mountains of Madness on the big screen.

Man, I don't know what karma's going to do to me in retaliation, but this week fucking rules.

Don't forget Tom Cruise.

Shit!  I totally forgot about that.  I don't get that at all?!?!

Huh, I wonder if the public impression of Scientology as a bizarre cult had something to do with him passing on a film about a bizarre cult?
