GLaDOS to appear in del Toro's next film
Guillermo del Toro, director of movies like Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy, has a new movie coming out next summer, and holy crap does it sound like my kind of movie.
Pacific Rim is about giant monsters invading Earth from a portal deep in the Pacific Ocean. Humanity combats these giant monsters (kaiju, if you will) by building, get this, giant robots.
Where does our lovable, muderous A.I. come in? Ellen McLain provides the voice of the A.I. the humans use. You can first hear her at the 0:45 second mark in the trailer (below).
I hadn't heard of this movie until this morning, but, as some would say, I came for the GLaDOS, stayed for the mechs vs. kaiju.
Will this casting choice be a huge success, or does Hollywood need to do more science?
I couldn't get through more than 40 seconds of that trailer...the guy's voice just grated on my ears. It looks like it wants to be every scifi movie out there, including the Gundam: Savior movie. Oh and BattleTech/MechWarrior. Maybe some ExoSquad thrown in there. Movie should be called Gundam: Godzilla XCom Terror From the Deep
I kinda want this movie to be stupid. Cuz the setup is just so enjoyable, it would be more fun if it were really dumb.
I dig giant robots!
this looks awesome thanks for turning me on to it
many have pointed out the similarities between this and Evangelion. I don't care as long as i get to see giant robots fighting giant monsters. kinda reminds me of power rangers in a way too.
Jax from SOA is in it! Robots versus monsters = awesome.
I'm reading all the comments in the Glados voice now. Oh, and this movie looks super cheesy.
we are all fucked is she goes rogue
Remember when Del Toro was working on his video game insane and then it got dropped by THQ. Remember when Del Toro would love work to work with valve on a video game. Recently Del Toro said that Insane got the green light again but couldn't name the developer of who agreed to work on Del Toro's Insane. Remember when 4chan's /v/ went to Valve studios to celebrate Gabe Newell's 50th birthday,. He announced valve's source 2 engine was legit and announcing ricochet 2 to was in the pipeline but it's a cover up the same way valve did by announced they were working on ricochet 2 but it was half life 2 that was the they were working on. Now we all know how valve work with secrets and hints with their games. The TF2 man vs machine arg was big examples of this. So having Ellen McLain the voice of GLaDOS being in Del Toro's new movie. So does that means Valve and Del Toro are....(comment deleted for unnecessary information) Nobody will know ever know you monster.
Did anyone else see this trailer and think it would make a great stepping stone to a Neon Genesis Evangelion movie? The concepts are quite similar...
The real question is, will there be cake?
LOL at the Godzilla tag, that was the exact same thing I thought at the end of the trailer.
Giant robots, giant monsters, and now GLaDOS for that extra dose of awesome. I love del Toro's movies, no matter if there the ones that are on the quieter side like the mentioned Pan's Labyrinth or the loud and exciting ones like this one is sure to be. Both of his directing styles are great to see so take your pick, you can't go wrong with either one.
This is a terrible idea, the ending will obviously be all the guys in the mechs are going to be killed when their suits start to fill up with neurotoxin.
Better yet, we'll burn the aliens' house down! WITH THE LEMONS!!
Besides GLaDOS....this is going to be AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Big O the movie, featuring GLaDOS.
Make the aliens Take the lemons BACK!!!!
this is... AWESOME!
