del Toro’s Pacific Rim getting excellent reviews = slight uptick in the chances of a big-budget movie of At The Mountains of Madness. Although his next projects seem to be the SF classic Slaughterhouse-Five, and Frankenstein.

On enjoying Pacific Rim, note that the 12 years prior to the movie’s events are laid out in the 120-page comic-book prequel Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero, penned by the movie’s scriptwriter.
