Final Pacific Rim Trailer Crashes In
Monster smash!

If the previous promos haven’t offered up enough footage of robots throwing down with monsters, then this latest, likely final trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim should offer enough to sate even the most eager appetite for destruction.

The trailers before this have set the scene and now we get it all in one place: how the massive creatures known as Kaiju emerged from a portal joining their dimension with our own Pacific Ocean and came roaring out to destroy population centres such as San Francisco and Manila to break the spirit of the human race.

Humanity responded by pouring its resources into crafting huge, two-crew (three, in the case of China) robot craft that could counter the new threat. Not, of course, without causing incredible amounts of property damage. The insurance rates in Rim’s universe must be through the roof…

What we really take away from this final blast of Guillermo del Toro goodness is that this looks like a whole lot of fun. The director is rarely able to contain his glee about monsters and now it's whacked up on screen for us all to enjoy. Speaking of which, there’s a new picture of a Kaiju skull on display below.

With Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman aboard for the ride, Pacific Rim arrives on July 12.

I am looking forward to seeing this film as looks as if its just going to be a pure entertainment fest, however there is one thing that is bugging me (maybe it'll be explained in the film itself) is that as a knee jerk reaction to combat this alien threat, humans built these massive robots. I would therefore imagine that these robots would take a substantial amount of time to design and build, and then the time taken to train whomever operates them. So what is stopping these monsters destroying More
