Pacific Rim won't get a director's cut

Pacific Rim won't get a director's cut photo



Reports came in pretty quickly that Guillermo del Toro had cut about an extra hour of movie out of Pacific Rim to make sure the character's story arcs were pared down to their bare essentials. As someone who came away from the movie thinking that the characters were to cookie cutter in the first place a director's cut release of the film on Blu-ray would have theoretically made the perfect movie for me. Sadly, it will never be.

Del Toro recently said that the director's cut is the movie you see on screen, and while we'll be getting deleted scenes with commentaries on upcoming releases we won't be seeing a re-edited movie. Del Toro blames the shrinking disc-based movie market, saying, "we can’t be as extravagant as we were with other discs in the past.” Most likely he's referring to Hellboy, which got a killer three disc special edition. 

The director goes on to talk a bit about what you can expect from the sequel for the film if it gets green lighted. Judging from the movie's box office that is still up in the air.

Mike's Top 5 Action Sequences of 2013

Maybe I’m just young, but a good movie fight is the quickest way to my heart. A well-choreographed or inventive action scene appeals to a certain part of my brain in ways I don’t quite understand yet. For an action junkie, 2013 was disappointing and delightful in equal measure. There were few standouts, but the ones that stood out? Man, did they stand out.more
