The Trueno was fitted with a new engine by Masashi Suzuki, a mechanic and friend of Bunta's. This new engine was a TRD Group A racing engine based on the fourth generation of the 4A-GE that was found in Toyota AE101s. It is unknown how he sourced this engine, although he may have contacts in the professional racing scene (suggested by the fact that he knows Keiichi Tsuchiya). Due to the sheer speed of the car with its new engine the driver is put under a large amount of g-forces, and so it was fitted with a bucket seat. Since Bunta had used a lot of money to fix the car that Takumi has earned while delivering tofu, he says that the car's ownership is now 50/50 between him and his son. Takumi originally believes that the car's new engine is less powerful due to the change in the shift points and the lack of a proper tachometer. With the help of Wataru Akiyama, a fellow Eight-Six driver, Takumi is able to find out that the reason the car is under-performing is due to his tachometer's inability to show the true redline of the engine, Wataru also recommends the installation of water temperature and oil pressure gauges. With help from Koichiro Iketani and Yuichi Tachibana (who gets the new instrument board from Suzuki), Takumi is able to install the new tachometer and faces Wataru in a battle on Shomaru pass, where he quickly adjusts to his new engine. Takumi then goes on to rematch Kyoichi Sudo on Irohazaka, his home course, with his new engine giving him the power he needed to match and beat Kyoichi. He would then battle Kai Kogashiwa in his father's Toyota MR2, the son of Bunta's old rival Ken Kogashiwa, on the same course. After reconciling with Mogi, Takumi would then chase her ex-boyfriend Miki on a snowy Akina to save her from him assaulting her. Exclusively in Third Stage, Takumi would also rematch Ryosuke Takahashi on Akagi, though this battle was merely an exhibition to display his growth before he joins Ryosuke's new team: Project D.

Also starring:Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Ian Whyte,Patrick Wilson, Peter Weyland: T.E. Lawrence, eponymously of Arabia but very much an Englishman, favoured pinching a burning match between his fingers to put it out. When asked by his colleague William Potter to reveal his trick, how is it he effectively extinguished the flame without hurting himself whatsoever, Lawrence just smiled and said, "The trick, Potter, is not minding it hurts." The fire that danced at the end of that match was a gift from the Titan Prometheus, a gift that he stole from the gods. And Prometheus was caught, and brought to justice for his theft. The gods, well, you might say they overreacted a little. The poor man was tied to a rock, as an eagle ripped through his belly and ate his liver over and over, day after day, ad infinitum. All because he gave us fire. Our first true piece of technology, fire... 100,000 BC: stone tools. 4,000 BC: the wheel. 900 AD: gunpowder - bit of a game changer, that one. 19th century: eureka, the lightbulb! 20th century: the automobile, television, nuclear weapons, spacecrafts, Internet. 21st century: biotech, nanotech, fusion and fission and M theory - and THAT, was just the first decade! We are now three months into the year of our Lord, 2023. At this moment of our civilization, we can create cybernetic individuals, who in just a few short years will be completely indistinguishable from us. Which leads to an obvious conclusion: WE are the gods now. To those of you who know me: you will be aware by now that my ambition is unlimited. You know that I will settle for nothing short of greatness, or I will die trying. To those of you who do not yet know me: allow me to introduce myself. My name is Peter Weyland, and if you'll indulge me, I'd like to change the world.Was originally conceived as a prequel to Ridley Scott's Alien, but Scott announced his decision to turn it into an original film with Noomi Rapace (who was already set to star) still in the cast as one of five main characters. Some time later it was confirmed that while the movie would take place in the same universe as Alien and greatly reference that movie, it would mostly be an original movie and not a direct prequel.Designer H.R. Giger, who worked on the original design of the Xenomorph Alien, was brought in to assist in reverse-engineering the design of the Aliens in the film.To prepare for his role as the android David, Michael Fassbender watched Blade Runner (a Ridley Scott film), The Man Who Fell to Earth, The Servant and Lawrence of Arabia (mentioned by Peter Weyland). Fassbender also studied Olympic diver Greg Louganis, drawing inspiration from Louganis's physicality.Director Ridley Scott named the film "Prometheus", seeing the name aptly fit the film's themes: "It's the story of creation; the gods and the man who stood against them." In Greek mythology, the Titan Prometheus was a servant of the gods, who stole and gave to mankind the gift of fire, an immeasurable benefit that changed the human race forever (for better AND worse).Ridley Scott decided against featuring Xenomorphs (the titular Alien of the film series) in the film, as "the sequels squeezed him dry, he did very well... and no way am I going back there." Instead, this being an indirect prequel to Alien, he decided to feature a Xenomorph ancestor/parent.According to Ridley Scott, the film's plot was inspired by Erich von Däniken's writings about ancient astronauts: "Both NASA and the Vatican agree that it is almost mathematically impossible that we can be where we are today, without there being a little help along the way. That's what we're looking at: we are talking about gods and engineers, engineers of space. Were the Aliens designed as a form of biological warfare, or biology that would go in and clean up a planet?"An innovative viral campaign was used to promote the film, consisting of several videos depicting the near future world from the film. The first was a fake TED Talk given by Peter Weyland (played by Guy Pearce), dated 2028. Later, two different versions of a commercial promoting the David 8 android (played by Michael Fassbender) were released. These viral videos were designed by Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof themselves, and were directed by Scott's son, Luke Scott.Producers Walter Hill and David Giler rejoin Ridley Scott for the first time in over 30 years since they first collaborated on Alien.The three-triangle logo of the Weyland corporation (while visually similar to that of the actual Weinstein Group) is actually derived from a pattern appearing on the wall in the background of an early Ron Cobb production painting of the "Space Jockey" for the original Alien film. the logo can be seen as part of David's fingerprint.David idolizes British World War 1 hero T.E. Lawrence. In World War 1, the British Army, including Lawrence, used a machine gun called the Vickers. Also, Peter Weyland, who quotes Lawrence of Arabia, is the creator/synthetic father of David, but also the biological father of Meredith Vickers.The moon's name in the film (LV223) is arguably a reference to the the bible verse Leviticus 22:3 - "Say to them, 'If any man among all your descendants throughout your generations approaches the holy gifts which the sons of Israel dedicate to the LORD, while he has an uncleanness, that person shall be cut off from before Me; I am the LORD.'" (New American Standard Bible). This foreshadows the events of the film, including the fates of the crew.


Also starring:Clifton Collins Jr., Ron Perlman, Brad William Henke,Raleigh Becket: [narrating] When I was a kid, whenever I'd feel small or lonely, I'd look up at the stars. Wondered if there was life up there. Turns out I was looking in the wrong direction. When alien life entered our world, it was from deep beneath the Pacific Ocean. A fissure between two tectonic plates. A portal between dimensions. The Breach. I was fifteen when the first Kaiju made land in San Francisco.[pause]Raleigh Becket: By the time tanks, jets and missiles took it down, six days and 35 miles later, three cities were destroyed. Tens of thousands of lives were lost. We mourned our dead, memorialized the event, and moved on. And then, only six months later, the second attack hit Manila.Newscaster: [on TV] The acid factor of the Kaiju blood creates a toxic phenomenon known as Kaiju BlueRaleigh Becket: Then the third one hit Cabo. And then the fourth. And then we learned, that this was not gonna stop. This was just the beginning. We needed a new weapon. The world came together, pooling it's resources and throwing aside old rivalries for the sake of the greater good. To fight monsters, we created monsters of our own. The Jaeger program was born. Screenwriter Travis Beacham also wrote the graphic novel Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero. Relased along with the movie, Tales from Year Zero serves as a prologue to the film and is set twelve years before its events. "Kaiju" is a Japanese word that literally translates to 'strange beast.' It is usually used to refer to giant monsters from Japanese science fiction films, such as Godzilla. "Jaeger" is the German word for hunter. Gipsy Danger is named after the "de Havilland Gipsy" aircraft engine. This was intended as a nostalgic nod to the World War II era, which was a major influence in the design of the robot. Karloff, one of the kaiju from the opening sequence, is named after Boris Karloff. The nickname was given because the creature's head resembles the dessicated face of Karloff's mummy character, Imhotep. Pacific Rim's Jaegers are a staple of Japanese anime, where they are often referred to as mecha. Similar to many mecha anime series, Jaegers are controlled from within by human pilots, distinguishing them from other depictions of robots as automated, sentient, or externally controlled. 041b061a72
