Monsters, and Robots, and Trailers, Oh My!

December 12, 2012

Here is the first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s new science fiction film, Pacific Rim:

Whoa! I think this looks awesome! Here is the official 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.

I know there isn’t too much dialogue going on, but in my opinion, with that much robot/monster mayhem, who cares!

What do you think?

    Voltron Meets Godzilla?

  2. Daniel – YES!

  3. Inter-dimensional Godzilla meets Cloverfield meets Gundam meets Power Rangers. We’ve just seen the best this movie has to offer. I’ll wait for it to release on Redbox the week after it hits theaters.

  4. For everyone who wanted Robotech vs. Godzilla…
