New pics for Pacifc Rim, details on Crimson Peak


We have a couple new pics for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim here. Nothing particularly glamorous, a pic and a piece of concept art, but you take your giant fighting robots where you can get ’em. What may be of more interest are the new details that have arisen on Del Toro’s haunted house feature starring Emma Stone, Crimson Peak. In an interview with Total Film, the director had this to say about the project:

It’s the turn of the century. So it’s at the turn of the century and half of the movie takes place in America, and the other half takes place in a crumbling mansion in Cumbria. And basically it’s a ghost story and gothic romance, trying to subvert the rules of the usual gothic romance…the first half is a love story, then that love story turns darker. And it’s at the same time a ghost story. I’m working at this moment with Lucinda Clarkson who is a really great playwright from the UK. She has the proper degree of perversity and intelligence to turn it into something interesting to watch.

Does this guy ever take a vacation? I’m starting to think that Del Toro may have long ago cloned himself to keep up with all the various projects he seems to be perpetually working on. At least this one seems to be coming along rather smoothly. I could use a new Del Toro directed horror movie.
