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!
Well, it might be a bit late but I still feel the need to post this because I am wicked hyped for this. I mean, it’s giant monsters vs. giant robots! It’s Evangelion but without all the pathos and existentialism! But anyways, here is the first full length trailer of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim.
And if that isn’t enough Kaiju smashing and mecha brutality for you, here is the MTV interview with the maestro of the monsters himself, Mr. del Toro! Follow this link for more awesomeness.
