Atlantic Rim Trailer. Definitely Not the Pacific...
The Asylum strikes again
The Asylum is an American company notorious for making knock of versions of upcoming blockbusters with similar titles, preying on the fact that some people will mistakenly buy the film anyway.

And it must be working because they're still churning out sub-Syfy channel movies like nobodys business.

Now, the makers of Transmorphers and American Battleship have set their sights on Guillermo del Toro'sPacificRim. Their chosen title? Atlantic Rim!

It's hard not to find the whole enterprise hilarious and the trailer for Atlantic Rim perpetuates that feeling, full of the incredibly cheesy dialogue and sup-par special effects, as well as some actors who may once have been famous. Check it out.


Some credit it due, The Asylum produce several films a year and reportedly none have ever lost money. They're milled out in a matter of months and have a very clear idea of how they're going to make their money - something studio films could learn some lessons from.

Atlantic Rim is out on DVD from the 9th of July. Pacific Rim follows on the 12th. What a coincidence!
