Back in September, Universal and Legendary Pictures took Pacific Rim 2off its release schedule of August 4, 2017 and gave its projected August 4, 2017 opening date to Pitch Perfect 3. Guillermo Del Toro, who directed the original that grossed $411 million worldwide in the summer of 2013, remained optimistic that the project would still be moving forward, submitting a script and budget to the studios a month after the sequel was put on hold.
Deadline is now reporting that the project is no longer on the development back burner, but it now has a different director. Del Toro has been replaced by Steven S. DeKnight.

“Ghosts are real, that much I know. I’ve seen them all my life…”
Directed by Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Crimson Peak is a gothic romance that hearkens back to golden age Hollywood productions like Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s Dragonwyck, and Hitchcock’s Rebecca.
Set in the year 1901, Crimson Peak follows Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska, Stoker), an aspiring author living with her father, Carter Cushing (Jim Beaver), in Buffalo, New York. Armed with a fascination for the supernatural and a passion for literature, Edith hopes to follow in the footsteps of forward-thinking Victorian women like Mary Shelley.
Her latest work of fiction – a ghost story – is based in reality, as Edith is plagued by visions of her deceased mother. A skull-faced phantom veiled in black, Edith’s mother has appeared throughout her daughter’s life to deliver a cryptic warning, “Beware of Crimson Peak.”
The release of the next movie from visionary The Devil’s Backbone, Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro, titled Crimson Peak, is a little over a couple of weeks away already, believe it or not.
To help keep you excited for the gothic horror tale, or ignite some excitement in you if you were previously unfamiliar with the movie, Legendary Pictures has been releasing some preview goodies in the form of some featurettes and TV spots. You can find all of these along with a synopsis for the movie below.
Today on Machinima’s Real Fake History, we take a deeper look into the Battle of Hong Kong Bay from Guillermo Del Toro‘s 2013 sci-fi action movie, Pacific Rim. One of the more purely fun movies to come out in a long time, the plot revolved around gigantic monsters (Kaiju) coming out of a hole at the bottom of deep Pacific trenches, and wreaking havoc on cities on our west coast, as well as Asian cities. To stop them, we build gigantic human controlled robots to fight the monsters off. It’s hard not to love a movie where a robot swings a ocean liner like a baseball bat into the head of a monster!
