Pacific Rim is a 2013 American Science Fiction Monster Film directed by Guillermo del Toro starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Perlman. The movie follows the story of Jaeger Pilots as they combat the threat of giant monsters known as Kaijus that rise from beneath the ocean.
Filming began on November 14, 2011 and continued in Toronto into April 2012. Del Toro gave an update after the second week on filming finished. The film was referred to as Silent Seas and Still Seas during production. On November 28, 2012, the official film website premiered alongside two viral videos--one depicting the initial Kaiju attack as captured by a handheld camera. Blueprints depicting the designs for the Jaeger machines were also released online. Pacific Rim was initially expected to reach theaters in July 2012. However, Warner Bros. decided to postpone the film's release date to May 10, 2013. In March 2012, it was announced that the film would be released on July 12, 2013. The film premiered in Mexico City on July 1, 2013.
Pacific Rim grossed $101.8 million in North America, and has had a favorable international release, grossing $309.2 million in other countries, for a worldwide total of $411,002,906.
The film received generally positive reviews from critics. The film has a score of 72% on Rotten Tomatoes, 7.0 on IMDB, and 64/100 at Metacritic. Critics praised the movie for being a solid example of the monster movie genre that had no shortage of brains nor brawn.
Pacific Rim is a popular concept to crossover with multiple other fandoms, especially Attack on Titan, since both the movie and the anime bear striking similarities and begun trending at nearly the same time.
The movie has an unofficial wiki with over 400 pages created. The official facebook page has 1,352,154 likes. The tag 'Pacific Rim' at Tumblr is very active and the same tag on Deviantart yields 13,878 results.
The Jaeger Designer is an online application created by Warner Brothers to promote the film. Following its release and coverage by various websites in May and June of 2013, many fans used it to generate non-serious Jaegers using a variety of humorous phrases and nationality stereotypes.
