Guillermo Del Toro Talks Year-Long Break And His Canned Pinocchio Project

The illustrious Guillermo del Toro is about to slip off the directorial radar.

True to his word, and now that The Shape of Water has made a beeline for theaters, del Toro has announced plans to take a year-long break from directing, during which time he’ll still be involved in a number of active projects – Trollhunters included.

Earlier this week, the prolific filmmaker told Collider that the quick turnaround on Blade II ultimately swayed his decision, after he was left juggling both the sequel’s post-production and The Devil’s Backbone, which was just beginning to claw its way into theaters back in 2001. And you can’t fault del Toro’s reasoning; the movie industry operates at a remarkably brisk clip, and it’s these tight deadlines, coupled with studio red tape, that often lead to all kinds of scheduling headaches on both ends of the production line.

‘Pacific Rim’ and Godzilla Crossover Shot Down (and Other Giant Robot vs Giant Monster Tidbits)
A few weeks ago, the internet heard news of a potential spin-off between the Pacific Rim movies and the “MonsterVerse,” the current home of King Kong and Godzilla. And it made sense. After all, both of these series are spearheaded by Legendary Pictures. Both of them involve giant monsters. Sure, they would somehow have to be massaged […]

Pacific Rim: Uprising Producer Outlines Guillermo Del Toro’s Involvement In The Sequel

Hellboy wasn’t the only cult franchise to lose visionary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro; in 2016, Pacific Rim found new blood in Daredevil director Steven S. DeKnight, who is now prepped and ready to launch a cinematic Uprising.

Working from the foundations put in place by del Toro and screenwriter Travis Beacham, Pacific Rim: Uprising will seemingly take one giant step toward becoming Hollywood’s next cinematic universe – perhaps opening up a potential crossover with Legendary’s MonsterVerse in the process?

The jury’s still out on that one, but as Pacific Rim: Uprising inches closer and closer to release, ComingSoon.net caught up with the film’s producer, Cale Boyter, who outlined Guillermo Del Toro’s involvement in the larger-than-life sequel.

He’s been involved from the different ideas, weighing in, the different drafts. We send him all the visuals and everything. He loves Boyega. Obviously all the

‘The Shape of Water’ Gets New Release Date in One State

The upcoming and highly anticipated creature love story, The Shape of Water from Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Pan’s Labyrinth) has received a new release date. The catch? The date change is only in one state.

Fox Searchlight has announced that New Yorkers (and anyone who happens to be in New York at the time) will get to see the film December 1 while the rest of America will have to wait until December 8 to watch. (Some markets will have later release dates).

There’s no explanation on why the release date was moved up a week for only New York but I’m sure there had to be some good reason behind the change.

The Shape of Water is an other-worldly fable, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation.

Marvel’s first Lgbt character, Shazam gets a release date, Blade Runner 2049’s disappointing box office performance and more – Daily News Roundup

She’S Bi

After years of campaigning and requests, Marvel Studios have their first official Lgbt character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Tessa Thompson revealing her character Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok is bi-sexual. Check out her announcement here.

The Return Of One-Shots

Something else that has often been requested by fans is the return of Marvel’s One-Shots that were a high point of home entertainment releases of McU films. Well, the writer of Thor: Ragnarok has revealed that they could be making a return. I think probably the drop in Blu-ray sales has hurt the One-Shots program — though I’ve heard whispers of it starting up again,” said Pearson, who penned the first three One-Shots – The Consultant, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer and Item 47. “I can’t confirm that at all, but I’ve definitely heard whispers of it.

Why Pacific Rim 2 Runtime Is Perfect According to Director
We were recently treated to the first trailer for Pacific Rim 2, which looks like it could be kicking off the much larger franchise that many assumed the first movie would be responsible for. The movie doesn't arrive for another five months and is still going through the post-production process, but director Steven S. DeKnight has things locked down. In fact, he already knows the runtime.

It's one thing for a director to roughly know the runtime of a movie while editing and locking Pacific Rim Uprising, but this is pretty impressive. Steven S. DeKnight is still finishing things up, but he's confident that the movie will be sitting right at the two-hour mark. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview.

"It's resting right around two hours. I always shoot for two hours. If I was doing Lawrence of Arabia it would be a little longer, but otherwise I think the two-hour mark,

Exclusive: ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ Runtime Revealed by Director Steven S. DeKnight

  • Collider.com
When the sequel Pacific Rim Uprising rolls around next spring, it sounds like it’s going to be a shorter affair than its predecessor. Collider’s own Steve Weintraub recently spoke with Uprising director and co-writer Steven S. DeKnight at New York Comic-Con about the follow-up, and the filmmaker revealed that the current runtime of the movie is right around two hours. Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim ran two hours and 12 minutes, so if that Uprising runtime holds, the sequel will end up being a bit shorter than the original movie. As DeKnight explains, he …

Pacific Rim Uprising director says a crossover with Godzilla and King Kong is a possibility

Back in September when it was first announced that Legendary Pictures were planning a shared universe between Godzilla and King Kong, rumours surfaced about the possibility of the studio bringing Pacific Rim’s Jaegers and Kaiju into the mix for a crossover of monster proportions.

Since then, we’ve heard nothing else about the prospect; however, Steven S. DeKnight, director of the upcoming sequel Pacific Rim Uprising, has revealed to Collider that talks have taken place and there is a chance that the crossover could become a reality.

“I won’t say there’s an Easter Egg but there’s been a lot of discussion about that possibility [of crossing over],” said DeKnight. “Look I think it would be fantastic to have the Pacific Rim universe join Legendary’s Monster Universe, it seems like a natural step. And part of the big overall plan after the third movie we’ve talked about is that could happen,
