Just from the trailers, the robots don't seem as well rendered and well designed as the monsters, which seem very realistic and truly unique.  Thus, I'm surprised that the reviews mainly praise the robots. I'm cool with it, though.

So based on good reviews (82% RT rating, 7.9/10 the average score) and strong buzz plus the lack of fun big-budget sci-fi until Elysium, I guess I wanna see Pacific Rim now! Bring on the monsters vs. robots action - sounds a lot deeper than the Transformers meets Godzilla with a Dubstep soundtrack movie WB tried to sell everyone for the last 5-6 months.

 

Well, I guess I was wrong on Pacific Rim

 

46 OW/162 Total

 

I guess it won't get massacred by GU2 and DM2 after all if it's as good as the reviews are saying! Nothing wrong with an original summer blockbuster doing well!! :) maybe Del Toro can make his Mountain of Madness film with Tom Cruise like he wanted.

 

Grown Ups 2 won't do horrible though... I think it has less competition so I could definitely see it beating out PR in the long run :mellow:

 

48.5 OW/173 Total

 

Hoping both do well to keep up the record summer we've been having at the box office (ticket sales are the highest since 2002/2003/2004 according to many sites!)

I'm seeing it in Real IMAX. Just means it's an upconverted movie, that's all.

It should still be worth to see it in Imax.

For the normal people: This trailer had some good elements but I think the first was better. If that was an A+ this is more a B+

For those that don't accept any Marvel criticism: OH MY FUCKING GOD DID YOU SEE THAT?!!?!! I'M GOING TO MASTERBATE TO THAT EVERY CHANCE I GET. DIDN'T LIKE THE TRAILER? FUCK YOU HATERS!!!!!!! DAR on January 12, 2015

The CG is native 3D, so I have no problem paying a bit more to see it in IMAX.

IMAX is a trademarked name, so it's probably your theatrical chain's version of a LieMAX.

Since I give all three JP's, Godzilla 1998, Dinosaur, first three Ice Ages, King Kong 2005, Transformers 1 and 3, and Cloverfield a 5/5, anything less for Pacific Rim by me would be a real disappointment!

Like what tele said.

It is most likely a 4k project with a good sound system and a big screen.

Unless Cameron offers SMELL-O-VISION with AVATAR 2, It's not doing more than 400M Plus ..  And YES, I'll bet AVATAR 2 doesn't do more than at best 425M Domestic ... You need to check into rehab if you think TA2 isn't going to make a dent in AVATAR 2's box office ... All Avatar tickets were in 3D. Avatar thread #6901

 

I'll be honest with you, I see Avatar 2 doing half of what the first did. Seriously, I think these sequels will start off below $400M and then just drop further.

For the most part, I doubt theaters are getting a 4K file. At this point, IMAX uses two 2K projectors and stacks the image one on top of the other.
