Since Guillermo del Toro’s giant monster vs giant mech flick hit theaters last night, I thought it’d be fun to dedicate today’s Daily Geek to “Pacific Rim.” Here goes…
ALREADY TALKING ’2’
Guillermo del Toro teases a sequel to his flick by saying:
We will have Gipsy 2.0 for sure. Second thing is you’re gonna see a merging of Kaiju and Jaeger. And that is quite special.
WELL, AT LEAST KANYE LIKES IT!
I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time.

Yeezus himself digs the movie. That’s all you need, right? If you ask GdT, he’s just happy to be liked, and I like that:

ONE OF THE BADASS LADIES OF ’PACIFC RIM’
We spoke with Jaeger pilot Sasha Kaidanovsky (real name: Heather Doerksen) about her character in the film. She said:
…she’s a woman of little words. You don’t really want to mess with her. She’s not scared of much. It’s almost like she lives her life with nothing to lose. I think that’s how she fights and why she is able to fight the Kaiju with her co-pilot as well as she can. It’s why she’s survived this long in battle. What intrigued me personally of the character was that there were parts of her related to and completely different from me. I would like to think I am fairly confident in who I am. But, I would have to say she possesses a strength that I wish I had. There’s kinda that correlation in why I really liked Sasha.
Did you catch our first look at the “Pacific Rim” prequel comic “Tales from Year Zero”?
The Asylum’s truly absurd flick this year is “ATLANTIC Rim”!
’Til Monday, gang!
