Pacific Rim Has Its Release Date Shifted

Warner Brothers have decided to move the release date for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. Instead of opening on July 13th, 2013, it will now hit theatres on May 10th, 2013. The reason for the shift isn’t really known, but it may be to compete with Disney’s release of Gore Verbinski’s Lone Ranger, which has just had its release date shifted from Deceber 21st, 2012 to May 31st, 2013.

del Toro’s next film is tightly under wraps, and all we really know is that the film will feature, in the director’s words “giant f*cking robots and giant f*cking aliens.” The tiny synopsis that has been released reads:

“When an alien attack threatens the Earth’s existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace.”

What do you think? Does it sound like something you’d want to see del Toro? Let us know in the comments.

Pacific Rim will star Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba and Charlie Day, among others.
