Interview: Guillermo del Toro From the Set of Pacific Rim

Back in March 2012, very few people knew very much about Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming project Pacific Rim except that it involved giant monsters, giant robots and the director of such great horror-action classics as the "Hellboy" movies, Blade II, Pan’s Labyrinth, Mimic and more. It would also be Del Toro's first movie as a director in five years having spent that time developing other movies, like The Hobbit and At the Mountains of Madness, that didn't pan out.

Peter Jackson and H.P. Lovecraft’s loss is our gain, because the idea of Guillermo making a giant monster movie is almost literally every giant monster movie fanboy's wettest dream since Guillermo has been involved with some of the coolest and craziest horror movies released in the past 20 years. (Not many people have realized or mentioned this, but 2013 also marks the 20th Anniversary of his feature directorial debut, the Spanish vampire movie Cronos.)

ShockTillYouDrop.com has spoken to Guillermo dozens of times over the past six years, and various members of ComingSoon.net have talked to Guillermo at least five maybe six times since last March about a variety of projects including Rise of the Guardians and Mama.

Even so, for this interview (which you can read over on ShockTillYouDrop.com), you should imagine going back in time fifteen months to when Guillermo was on set making the movie, working 7 days a week, 87 days into the production, and he would basically break away from shooting whenever he could to come over and talk to us.
