Is Guillermo Del Toro's Monster Epic Now Titled STILL SEAS?

Warner Bros register Still Seas domain names but surely it's still officially called Pacific Rim and they wouldn't change it to something so banal like that?

Finally after three years of false starts on other projects (including The Hobbit and At The Mountains of Madness), director Guillermo del Toro will begin filming his Asian set monster movie for Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures on Monday at Pinewood Toronto Studios. Written by Travis Beacham, the movie is centered around an alternate version of Earth in the near future decades after a historic date in November 2012 when the first towering Godzilla-like beast emerged from a hole in the Pacific Ocean and attacked the city of Osaka, Japan. Since the first attack, the rim has been €œspitting out€ a variety of gigantic monsters at an increasing rate, which then stride out of the ocean and begin destroying sea-bordering cities, like Tokyo and Los Angeles. In order to combat these monstrous, otherworldly menaces, the military developed the €œJaeger€ program, which trains teams of two pilots to jointly operate massive, building-sized mechanized suits of armor and high-tech weaponry. Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Idris Elba, Max Martini, Clifton Collins Jr and Diego Klattenhoff star. The monster vs. mechas film has previously gone by the name Pacific Rim but there's rumours today that could be more of a working title as on Wednesday, Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. has registered three domain names for the film including,, and Of course registering three domain names when you are the size of Warner Bros is cheap business but The Hollywood Reporter did say earlier in the summer that the film was being refered to internally as Still Seas. Was that a hidden title to keep off the scent of Pacific Rim when filming or is Still Seas now the official title for Del Toro's new film? With a press release regarding the start of filming to come soon... things might be a little clearer, though we should remind ourselves that Pacific Rim has already had a mock-up Legendary teaser poster, so surely they wouldn't change the title to something as banal as Seven Seas?
We need more writers about Guillermo del Toro, clifton-collins-jr, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Pacific Rim, Charlie Hunnam, Max-Martini and Diego Klattenhoff! Get started below...
