A washed up former pilot and an untested trainee are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger, a massive robot designed to fight legions of monstrous creatures known as Kaiju, which started rising from the sea years ago. They stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
HOLY HECK YES!!! At last, a trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s new movie Pacific Rim has landed, and lemme tell ya: it’s a thing of beauty. If you follow TBR regularly, you might already be aware of the fact that I love gigantic fighting robots. Hell, I’ll even excuse a whole bunch of the crap in the Transformers movies just because those robots looked so damn good. What you might not know is that I’m also a huge fan of old school Godzilla movies, and from the looks of things, so is Del Toro! Stuff that comes to mind when I watch this trailer: Godzilla, Transformers, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Sym-Bionic Titan, Voltron, Robot Jox…I love all those things!
Pacific Rim comes out July 12, 2013.
