    Exclusive: Video Interview…’The Book of Life’ Creative Team – Jorge R. Gutierrez, Paul Sullivan and Augusto Schillaci

    This Fall, 20th Century Fox and producer Guillermo del Toro will bring an animated film unlike any other to theaters. In advance of the October premiere, we got an exclusive tour of Dallas-based animation studio Reel FX. While there, we were treated to an inside look at the film (click here to read about our exclusive tour), and met with the amazing creative team behind The Book of Life.

    Exclusive: A Look Inside Reel FX and ‘The Book of Life’

    Reel FX is a Dallas-based company that has seen their fair share of the commercial animation world. In the last two decades, they have lent their digital magic to a multitude of projects, both large and small. The company also maintains a Santa Monica location but the unassuming brick building here in North Texas houses a multitude of digital artists – ones well-versed in the field of computer animation. Founded 20 years ago, the company began doing service work and were one of the first to have the “Flame” software (their current circle logo is loosely based on that fact). Over time, their projects grew in size, as did their commercial…

    G-S-T Review…Pacific Rim

    Let’s begin this review on the bluntest note possible: Pacific Rim is the summer’s best blockbuster by several leagues. That may read as grotesquely biased coming from someone who grew up on Ultraman, Ray Harryhausen, and Toho films and discovered mecha anime titles in his college years; it probably doesn’t help my case that Guillermo del Toro happens to be one of my favorite contemporary filmmakers, either. But if my loyalty to del Toro and my passion for the kaiju films he has modeled so much of Pacific Rim after give me a clear dog in the seasonal fight for popcorn supremacy, my sentiment about his latest film remains as…

    Ohhh Look…June's Poster Round Up

    This month we saw the start of Summer which included a kick ass assortment of films that lived up to expectations (see our reviews of Man of Steel, The Heat and everything else). But this month we were also treated to a giant helping of posters teasing what’s in store for the coming months. The following assortment of visual splendor give us everything from the neon lights of Nichols Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives, rice paper themed posters for The Wolverine, a half dozen character posters for The World’s End as well as a whole lot more. So if you happened to miss all these awesome looking posters this month then…

    New 'Pacific Rim' Posters Loom Large

    One can never say too much about Guillermo Del Toro projects, especially when they’re well-cast love letters to the kaiju genre. Pacific Rim (one of Go, See, Talk!’s most anticipated releases of the year) has slowly but surely been building up hype since last year, before even a single promotional image or trailer was released. Since then, we’ve gotten the first official teaser and blueprint designs for the giant robots that comprise one of the film’s two colossal stars- the other, of course, being the aforementioned kaiju- and today the Internet has treated us to a pair of “character” posters for a pair of the monster-battling jaegers. First up, hailing from Russia, we’ve…

    G-S-T Review…Mama

    Seeing those four dreamy and all encompassing words “Once Upon A Time” at the start of any story is a dead give away that what you are about to see is a fairy tale. Translation: not real. But what else does it mean? Is that meant to keep kids (or adults) from being scared? Or is this the only way to make us buy what the story is selling? Not sure but this has all the familiar hallmarks of a fairy tale. This isn’t Little Red Riding Hood and this sure ain’t  kids stuff. Mama calls back to the darker Grimm fairy tales and, as per all the advertising, is in the vein of Pan’s…

    Guillermo del Toro is Way Too Busy to Direct 'Star Wars VII'

    Who will direct Star Wars Episode VII? Despite having Michael Arndt on-board for writing duties, Disney still hasn’t picked a director for their continuation of George Lucas’ alternately beloved and maligned space opera franchise. That said, we can now add one more name to the list of people who won’t be at the helm of the sci-fi blockbuster: Guillermo del Toro. The news comes courtesy of The Playlist, who had the chance to speak with the celebrated genre prince and got a couple of juicy nuggets of info out of him in the process. Normally, I wouldn’t consider this sort of thing news; why bother reporting on one of the…

    Sweet Trailer…'Pacific Rim'

    This may well be the shortest word-for-word piece I’ll ever write for Go, See, Talk!, but that’s only because the highly-anticipated trailer for Pacific Rim speaks for itself. Big monsters, big robots, big imagination, and big excitement all wrapped up in a 2:16 clip. Count this one at the top of my “must-see” list for 2013, and sound off in the comments. (Courtesy of Badass Digest) If the viral website and sweet looking “jaeger” diagrams didn’t do anything for you, this trailer should have rocked your world; it did ours! Directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi (The Brother’s Bloom) Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day and Clifton Collins Jr. Pacific…

    Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim'…It's Big, It's Bad, It's Viral

    I’ve checked, double-checked, even triple-checked my calendars, but the date still shows as November 28th and not December 25th. That means Christmas has come early for some of us, courtesy of Warner Brothers, which has kicked off the viral marketing campaign for Pacific Rim in earnest today with a bevvy of preview materials for our enjoyment. We’ve talked about Guillermo Del Toro’s latest around here in the past, and I think it probably goes without saying that most of us on the Go, See, Talk! staff are pretty excited to see one of today’s monster maestros tackle the realm of Godzilla and King Kong with his own kaiju film. (Though…

    Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' Gets 3D Converted

    Back in July, GST favorite Guillermo Del Toro talked to Collider about his upcoming kaiju film, Pacific Rim, specifically speaking to his decision to forsake the use of 3D technology. The short version is that employing 3D technology to shoot robots of the size he has in mind could lead to issues with scale and perspective in the finished picture, something that any smart filmmaker and artist wisely wants to avoid. But the integrity of Del Toro’s vision and the passion of his sentiment wasn’t enough to defend his project from Warner Bros’ bean counters, as the studio is aiming to give the film the post-conversion treatment in time for its mid-July…
