Nice trailer for Hollywood film Pacific Rim, a giant robot vs monster movie (heavily inspired by the Japanese mecha anime/manga genre) by filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures. In theatres July 12, 2013.
US’ Warner Bros have filed a lawsuit against Mumbai-based Mirchi Movies related to the title of its upcoming film Hari Puttar – A Comedy of Terrors, which Warner feels is a bit too similar to its Harry Potter franchise [more on THR].
Hari is a popular Indian name while Puttar means son in the Punjabi language. It’s said that the storyline doesn’t relate to Harry Potter at all… and judging from the poster alone, I would have ruled that Mirchi is the winner for the lawsuit.
However, I can’t deny the probability that the Indian movie maker is being opportunistic for publicity, which they managed to get it now regardless of whether it was intentional at the first place.
