Del Toro brings us another finely crafted action flick - with sea monsters!
A war is devastating Earth! Monstrous creatures, known as the Kaiju have risen from the sea with one thing on their mind - destruction! Cities are burning and millions of lives have been lost. Mankind has been fighting the Kaiju with huge robots steered by human pilots. On the verge of defeat after years of war, the fate of the human race will rest with a washed-up pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested rookie (Rinko Kikuchi) who are teamed up to pilot a legendary but aged robot.
Guillermo del Toros (, ) sci-fi epic is rumored to have cost more than $200 million dollars. And even though the film incorporates a lot of CGI work, Del Toro still opted to shoot some elements in live-action to get a real tactile and gritty feel. He recently revealed at Comic Con "we built a whole street of Tokyo and rigged it with pneumatic shockers, so every time the monster took a step, the whole street would shake, the cars would jump, the walls would shake. Normally those would be digital." After being vocally opposed to including 3D in the project, Del Toro is now going down the route of 3D conversion, stating "ILM is giving the composite in 3D from the get-go. That's a huge, huge element. Now I'm going to be involved in supervising it. What can I tell you? I changed my mind."
Famed composer Ramin Djawadi (Iron Man, Game of Thrones) has been brought on board to score the film. Del Toro describes his scores as having "a grandeur but also an incredible human soul" and as a collaborator, Del Toro believes Djawadi will do amazing things to heighten and complement the film footage.
The visionary director intends it to be a homage to Japanese giant monster films, known as 'daikaiju eiga'. Del Toro calls it "a beautiful poem to giant monsters". It should be the first of its kind!
