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?
