Well, I can’t understand why I haven’t seen this until now. But it turns out that back in January, a new trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim that included new snippets of footage of mechas hammer-fisting kaiju over the head, new touched-up CGI, and more looks at the pilots being total badasses was shown off at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. Of course, this new trailer still keeps Idris Elba being a total badass and giving his, “cancelling the apocalypse,” speech. Actually, they should just rename the film “Badassness” since that’s what this is. Pure, unadulterated, straight to the main-line badassery. Below is the trailer and a newly released picture of a kaiju footprint. Needless, to say, time to rev the hype machine!
