Guillermo del Toro Geeks Out Over Gundam In Japan, and Everyone Geeks Out Over Guillermo del Toro [VIDEO]


Pacific Rim wouldn’t exist without the nerdy enthusiasm of director Guillermo del Toro, and now that the movie has finally opened in Japan, we can watch footage of del Toro visiting the birthplace of the Kaiju and Gundam that inspired the film. This clip of del Toro, and the two Mako Mori’s of the film, Rinko Kikuchi, and Ashida Mana, walking around Odiaba, Japan is adorable, from the ice cream del Toro buys for the three of them, to the television host who has a fanboy moment over del Toro, to the director’s reaction when he encounters a giant Gundam in real life. Giant robots abound, and dreams come true for all.
