Well, This Sounds Awesome...
Typically, Hollywood films are sold solely on their "log lines" -- a two-sentence description designed to whip producers into a frenzy and leave them clamoring to fund the feature.
And while heavy-hitters typically line up to throw money at auteur Guillermo del Toro (brain behind Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, The Orphanage, Mimic and many others), the man still clearly knows how to spin a good pitch.
While talking about his newest movie, the hotly anticipated Pacific Rim, del Toro called the film, "a very, very beautiful poem to giant monsters. Giant monsters versus giant robots. Twenty-five-story-high robots beating the crap out of 25-story-high monsters. We're trying to create a world in which the characters are real and how it would affect our world politically, how it would affect the landscape if creatures like this really came out of the sea, etc."
And if that alone didn't sell you on the story, it also stars the incredible and oft-shirtless Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Ron Perlman, Idris Elba and Charlie Day.
