    Guillermo Del Toro Says WB Gave Him Extra Budget To Do 3D Conversion Right For 'Pacific Rim'

    After talking a big game at Comic-Con earlier this year, telling Collider that despite shooting digitally -- the film was shot on the RED EPIC -- the film was not intended for 3D post-conversion because of the sheer scale of the robots and monster (the stereoscopic process makes objects appear small...

    Guillermo del Toro Lands Hitchcockian Drama Series 'Nutshell Studies' at HBO

    \Guillermo del Toro's been spending more time producing than directing these days. It will have been five years since "Hellboy II" hit theaters by the time his aliens versus robots film "Pacific Rim" premieres in summer 2013. But he's hardly been taking things easy, having had his hand in producing ...

    Guillermo Del Toro Heads To HBO For 'Hitchcockian' Crime Drama 'Nutshell Studies'

    By the time "Pacific Rim" hits theaters next summer, it'll have been a disappointingly lengthy five years since Guillermo Del Toro had a film in theaters ("Hellboy II: The Golden Army" was released in the summer of 2008).

    Studios Go Gigantor at Comic-Con: 'Pacific Rim,' 'Godzilla,' 'Man of Steel,' 'The Hobbit'

    The studios have boxed themselves into a corner. Because you can't just keep piling money into VFX to lure audiences to theaters, as their current (failing) tentpole strategy attests. And digital 3-D isn't exactly an event anymore--both "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "Ice Age 4" saw lackluster 3-D per...
