Watch a Behind-the-Scenes Pacific Rim Featurette
Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi epic Pacific Rim will finally be released in theaters this week, but for those of you who just can’t wait until June 12, a 14-minute behind-the-scenes look at the film has been released for your viewing pleasure.
The video features interviews with del Toro, the cast and Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull that delve into the meaning behind the film, the characters and the filmmaking process.
In the film, monsters called Kaiju have emerged from the sea to wreak havoc on our world. To combat the Kaiju, the humans have constructed massive robots called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two mentally linked pilots.
“There are two great genres. One is the giant monster movie— a Kaiju movie— and the other one is a giant robot movie,” del Toro says in the featurette. The director also discusses the idea that Pacific Rim is meant to show not just one country saving the day but “the world saving the world,” as the film features characters from across the globe.
Pacific Rim opens in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on July 12. Check out the featurette over at Apple.
