Pacific Rim Movie Director Guillermo del Toro recently spoke with Collider about his upcoming summer sci-fi epic Pacific Rim.

Read on for excerpts:
Pacific Rim Movie - Coming July 2013
Regarding when we'll see the first official Pacific Rim Trailer:
Guillermo del Toro said: "They bring it to me and then I do a little pass myself, I help with the sound design, then we re-cut it again, and then Iím involved in the timing of the color and the mixing of the sound, so whatever you saw in San Diego or New York, I was completely part of the process."
"We have a couple of finished shots, but most of the stuff is being finished for the trailer. If it goes public, it has to be [stuff that I'm happy to show]. Iím very, very happy to show off what weíll show in December."
So it's nice to see Del Toro has a say in what the trailer consist of. This is good news for sure! Moving on...
Regarding the potential sequel to Pacific Rim:
Del Toro expressed that he's worked on a few ideas for a sequel, but ultimately he's planning to take a break for a bit before diving into it. Here's his official statement:
"We certainly started tossing ideas for possibilities of a sequel and Travis Beacham and I are writing a proposal of ideas, but at the same time I know I donít want to do that next. I want to do something else, I want to do something in a different genre thatís not so big. So I donít know yet what itís gonna be, but I know that next year Iím delivering Pacific Rim in July and then Iím doingóGod willingóthe voice shooting for Pinocchio and then the pilot for The Strain for FX."
As you may already know, Del Toro is also teaming up with Legendary Comics' department to run a series of comic books which explore the prequel to Pacific Rim, so without a doubt we'll have something to keep us busy while we wait for Del Toro to return with Pacific Rim 2.
