I love and worship Guillermo del Toro, I don’t think the man has made a bad film. I love everything he’s done from Cronos to Hellboy II, and I am absolutely super excited for his latest film Pacific Rim. Heck I didn’t need a trailer to get excited about it, his name alone has me sold. After watching the trailer, I am so much more pumped. This looks like it will be so much fun and it certainly has that del Toro feel.
I was a little thrown off because Jax Teller was narrating … heh I tried to be funny. You can check it out for yourself below.
Synopsis: When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) — who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
The film will release in Australia on July 11th 2013 (according to IMDb), with del Toro at the helm it stars Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Clifton Collins Jr.
