I’m quickly jumping onto the Pacific Rim bandwagon and here’s a new trailer – though it’s not all that different from the last trailer.
Still badass though. Idris Elba is going to be awesome.
I don’t know how I missed so much of the early hype and explanation of Pacific Rim, having only really found out when I watched a teaser trailer at random a few weeks ago. But this movie was made for me!
Giant monsters! Mech suits! A super sci-fi modern take on Godzilla movies! GLaDOS doing the voice of the computer! I’m in Nerd Heaven! Not to mention how much this movie likes like Evangelion, though I never watched. But surely some nerds are super thrilled. I know somewhere in the back of my mind I’d heard that Guillermo del Toro was making a movie called Pacific Rim. But I never bothered to care what it was about. I mean, c’mon, what kind of name is ‘Pacific Rim’ for this kind of movie? Stupid!
And here I thought there were enough movies coming out in 2013 to get excited about.
Here’s a 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.
That sounds completely insane! But it’s still going to exist!
