The three-bedroom home is built on Big Sur’s south coast all while being neatly nestled on the ocean landscape. The complex structure looks like something thought up in a dream, but it is entirely real. These photos of the Fall House simply do not justify its view, as it appears to be absolutely stunning.
Pacific Rim opened in theaters last night at 7:00pm and apparently to a pretty big audience. The movie earned an impressive $3.6 million in late night screenings, which has left many concerned that the movie will end up underperforming. World War Z also opened recently to a surprising opening weekend haul, but Disney’s The Lone Ranger failed to make an impression with audiences, even though Disney bought a lot of TV spots for advertisement.
