We got some goodies from Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim for you today.

First, in an interview with the La Times’ Hero Complex, Guillermo Del Toro discusses his vision for the monsters/robots film. He had this to say, along with a helluva lot more, in the video below: “I felt there was a chance to do something fresh, something new that at the same time was conscious of the heritage, but not a pastiche or an homage or a greatest hits of everything…One of the first things I did is make it a point to not check any old movies or any other references. Like start from scratch.”

Secondly, below the clip, there’s an interview that was left over from Comic-Con that delves even deeper into Pacific Rim, courtesy of Uruloki.

Uruloki: You worked with Francisco Ruiz Velasco, Guy Davis and Henry Fong in the design of the creatures or Kaijus. »
