Yes, sci fi fans. “Pacific Rim” is set to flop, losing to both Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups 2” and “Despicable Me 2”. But director Guillermo del Toro isn’t worried:

“I’m not a guy that plays inside baseball. My responsibility as a director is to be fiscally responsible and deliver a movie under budget and under schedule. I think we have an amazing movie — one I’ve seen connect with an audience like crazy. So it’s anyone’s guess what happens.”

That’s true. But, with all the films he wants to make like “Frankenstein” with Benedict Cumberbatch and “Hellboy 3” it’s going to be a little tougher to get those movies made.
