You've Seen the PACIFIC RIM trailer, now watch the BNAT14 Q&A with Guillermo Del Toro!!!

Hey folks, Harry here...   This is the first year that I've allowed taping of the Q&A's from BUTT-NUMB-A-THON.   One of the things you need to know is what GENRE of film this movie is.   Guillermo describes that he's setting out to make a goddamn Alexander Korda movie.   Now, when one says that, they're not just talking about the films Korda directed...  but the ones he produced as well.   In fact the entire mention of ALEXANDER KORDA is a very telling truth about Guillermo Del Toro.   He wants to help and be responsible for films he loves, be that as director or producer.    And Korda was that way too.   Take a look at Korda's production of THE FOUR FEATHERS, or his directed telling of THE THIEF OF BAGDAD.  Guillermo is starting to strut.   This is the very first time he's making the exact film he's always wanted to make with out having a single excuse.   Be that over-bearing executive partners on a film here or there.   Folks fighting over Budgets.   Guillermo has gotten to make exactly the film he wants to - Like Edgar Rice Burroughs' PRINCESS OF MARS, this film is a romance.   The film whose SOUL I would say this film is aiming for is something like THE ABYSS.   We're in that future.  ALIENS...   And as for the action, these are not big shots.  He's having a real good time on this one.   He knows he's made a film that is going to just blow people away.  It was a blast to see Guillermo like that at Butt-Numb-A-Thon.
