Movies and Tea #16 – Pacific Rim

Having both critical acclaim and mainstream recognition with Pan’s Labyrinth Del Toro would suprisingly enter into a period of development hell as he struggled to find both funding and studio backing for his next project before finally returning with his love letter to monsters and Kaiju movies Pacific Rim

On this episode we are also joined in this episode by Stephen Palmer (Gweilo Ramblings / Asian Cinema Film Club) to see if there is more to the film than giant robots battling monsters aswell as the inspiration for Del Toro’s vision.
