Pacific
Rim

(Reported by Jay Bobbin, ©Tribune Media Services)
The lowdown: If you’re familiar with “Pan’s Labyrinth”
or even the past winter’s chiller “Mama” (which he executive-
produced), you know Guilermo del Toro who often relies on
startling and downright scary visuals to carry his fantasy ideas
forward. Just imagine, then, what he can do with a story that
finds invading aliens opposed by huge robots that are guided by
pilots. Yes, indeed, that does set the mind whirling. Two staples
of television’s “Sons of Anarchy” – Charlie Hunnam and Ron
Perlman – are among the humans caught up in the battle, as
are Idris Elba and Charlie Day (“Horrible Bosses”). And if any
movie this summer virtually screams “3D” and “IMAX” in terms
of viewing options to take advantage of if possible, this would
appear to be the one. However, stay aware that del Toro doesn’t
stint on visuals that are gruesome as well as artistic, so do some
double-thinking on having a big dinner before taking this in.
The cast: Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Idris Elba, Charlie
Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Larry Joe
Campbell
The director: Guillermo del Toro
The studio: Warner Bros.
The preps (on DVD): The “Transformers” movies,

The lowdown: Getting this movie into production was about as
much of an adventure as anything the finished product could put on
the screen. The film almost was derailed totally when Disney wanted
to contain the intended budget …but in the end, Johnny Depp stuck
with his “Pirates of the Caribbean” director Gore Verbinski, so the
actor now adds loyal companion Tonto to his ever-growing list of
unexpected characters. The heroic John Reid, aka The Lone Ranger,
is played by Armie Hammer (with only one role to worry about this
time, after portraying the twin brothers in “The Social Network” with
assists from another actor’s body and some great visual trickery). In a
similar vein as the “Pirates” offerings, expect stunts designed to leave
you laughing and gasping simultaneously, with antics atop a moving
train among them. Whether this will revive the Western genre overall,
though, is another story – as usual these days.
The cast: Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, Helena
Bonham Carter, Barry Pepper, William Fichtner, James Frain, James
Badge Dale
The director: Gore Verbinski
The studio: Walt Disney Pictures
The preps (on DVD): “Silverado,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean”
movies, “Rango”
