The SLU Film Society Presents: Pacific Rim

The SLU Film Society presents:

Pacific Rim (2013)
When: Monday, October 21, 6:30 p.m.
Where: TECO Hall
What: Pacific Rim (2013, 131 minutes, PG-13)
Directed by Guillermo del Toro
Starring Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, and Ron Pearlman

In the humble estimation of the Film Society, Pacific Rim has no redeeming social value whatsoever. However, it is a rare and always interesting event when someone like del Toro, one of the world’s most highly skilled directors (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth), chooses to make a summer action movie.
Pacific Rim follows the exploits of a group of human robot fighter specialists who must stop the threat presented by the emergence of monsters of the Godzilla/Gamera/Mothera variety. These monsters are bent on destroying Southeast Asia and then, presumably, the world. The result is pure film. This is a movie that makes us very happy.

The film will be shown in English with Spanish subtitles.

Join us for the film, discussion, and light refreshments. For further information, contact Donald Pharr (8280), Carol Ann Moon (8261), or Marcela Van Olphen (8370). We look forward to seeing you there!
