I have high hopes for this. Sounds super fun, so I hope it lives up to the hype.

The difference between this flick and transformers is that this flick will have substance. You can't bitch about a movie about robots and monsters fighting having huge action set pieces, what do you want them to arm wrestle or something? The special effects look outstanding. Remember folks we have an actual real, extremely passionate and talented as frig director behind the lens, with a talented cast to boot. I highly doubt Del Toro would work on, let alone talk so passionately about a dumb popcorn flick. Just because there's robots fighting doesn't make it transformers, other robots can exist in the world you know. I expect it to be a fun, smart, highly entertaining action flick with a good story. I have complete faith in Del Toro, and its great to see an original giant big budget monster flick coming out. Especially excited about all the different types of monsters that we haven't even seen yet. and can we all just be happy that a big budget hollywood flick is coming out that is an original IP and that is not based off of a comic/franchise/ old tv show or a remake. Whether your excited or not you should at least be semi happy that studios are willing to take a huge risk and sink an obscene amount of money into something like this. I am beyond stoked for this flick. I just think its crazy how quick people are to dismiss something because it kind of looks vaguely similar to something they saw once and didn't like. But hey maybe I'm wrong and mark wahlburg will show up and start doing pushups with Jax Teller and cracking jokes with the robots all while learning life lessons.

Agreed with just about everything you said.

Or people think the trailer looks good because it isn't a mess and you can tell what's going on. But nah, that can't be it.

Yup. The whole "if this was a Michael Bay film, everyone would be shitting on it" argument is super weak. Uh yeah, that is because Michael Bay has proven to be a shitty storyteller and can make even $200 million movies boring. But the same cant be said for GDT. He has a loyal following for a reason. This isn't Transformers and this isn't Michael Bay, and that's why some people are (gasp!!) actually intrigued.

Go into Pacific Rim prepared to be transmogrified into a 12 year old. And then to pee your pants with joy. I love it so much.

Nice. I think I'm signed up with them, but I can almost never make the shows.

Looks like they are projecting this to be a bomb.
Really? That surprises me. I don't know what the budget on this is, but reviews are good and I see a ton of anticipation for it online.

Estimates are sitting at about $50m for the weekend, which is good but not great. Definitely won't bomb though.

Foreign box office will definitely be saving this one.

Totally. All of these disaster/robot/cgi-heavy films seem to pull in more than half of their revenue overseas.

14.6 mil. Yeah, this probably won't break $50 mil.
Worldwide, it will. It's at $33m as of last night.
