With most of the focus this past week on the dead in the water project of At The Mountains Of Madness, there hasn’t been too much said about what Guillermo del Toro’s next project will actually be about other than it’s name. According to News in Film, they think they’ve got the goods on what the plot is for it.
“The first [world] is an alternate version of Earth in the near future, decades after an historic date in November 2012 when the first kaiju, a towering Godzilla-like beast, emerged from a hole in the Pacific Ocean and attacked the city of Osaka, Japan,” wrote News in Film. “The second [world] is The Anteverse, another universe on the other side of that gaping portal, 5 miles below our ocean’s surface.”
The site has more supposed details of what Pacific Rim will be about, with lots of gigantic monsters being hurtled out into the world, and lots of massive mechanized suits and weapons to defeat them, giving it all a very anime film since western movies rarely tend to do anything with “giant robots” outside of it being a comedy of some sort.
