Sometimes awesome things happen while walking by a movie theatre in a crowded mall. For me, that awesome thing was an invitation to see Pacific Rim almost two weeks early. Now that I’m not under an information embargo, I get to spill the beans on what I thought. So how is it? Is it a Del Toro masterpiece, or should have stayed at the bottom of the Pacific?
Don’t worry… Guillermo Del Toro did get permission from Valve to rip off GlaDOS’s voice for ‘Pacific Rim’
If you remember the first trailer for Pacific Rim, there was a helpful sounding computer voice throughout that sounded awfully familiar. Sounded a hell of a lot like GlaDOS from Portal. But if you were hoping Valve had sent their lawyers out, you’re going to be disappointed. Del Toro is a huge fan of Valve’s games and got permission to use the voice, even if it’s not the same character.
