Pacific Rim Trailer Roars In
Today we are canceling the apocalypse!

12 December 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Warner Bros.

Guillermo del Toro knows how to do creepy. He’s proven he can do rip-roaring entertainment. And he’s also a hugely charming raconteur. Now, with the first proper trailer for Pacific Rim, he’s proving he’s got massive blockbuster chops. Check out the footage above and the new poster below.

In a wildly thrilling trailer that plays like an adrenalin shot straight to the heart, we get the very basic setup thanks to Charlie Hunnam’s Raleigh Antrobus, who explains that massive, trans-dimensional beasties are emerging from the ocean. Sharp-eared viewers will also pick out the voice of Ellen McLain as the AI – essentially  Portal's GLaDOS in all but name (though presumably slightly less homicidal/cake-obsessed).

The creatures – every bit as alien even though they didn’t fall from the stars – are known as kaiju and are looking to destroy humanity. But they had reckoned without our indomitable spirit and ability to build giant robots, called Jaegers, that can take the fight back to the monsters.

Piloted by two people at once via neural link from a control room in the robots' heads, these skyscraper-sized ‘bots go into battle against the encroaching beasts. And let’s face it: giant robots vs huge monsters brought to the screen by Guillermo del Toro? They already have our money.

GDT also plays it canny by not showing too much of the monsters – just enough to whet our appetites. We’ll have to wait until July 12 to see Pacific Rim in cinemas, but this little treat feels like an early Christmas present. And that’s before Idris Elba gets to deliver a little motivational speech...

Chill, dudes.
Fact is, You either think the trailer looks awesome or you think it looks a tiny bit rubbish. In turn, the film will either be awesome... or a tiny bit rubbish! It's all opinions, intit. I reckon everyone on here loves GDT a little bit for summat (whether it was for Pan's Labyrinth or Hellboy 2 or whatever) and at the end of the day, we all HOPE it'll be awesome. Time will tell! Fingers crossed! We'll see! etc. etc. More

If I'm going to be an utter prat I might as well be consistent with it. Again, I didn't actually say anything absurdly positive about a film that isn't actually finished and won't be for another six months. I just said that it looks interesting and I'm in. More

If you want to descend into hair-splitting semantics maybe, but otherwise your post was a positive evaluation based on a trailer and GDT's previous films. You also ignored all the posts mentioning how great this film was going to be (because their views aligned with yours??). If you read my post more carefully you'd also see that I have no problem with you saying 'this is going to be good' or variations thereof. Obviously hyperbolic unchanging opinions based on two minutes of footage are s More

RE: Pacific Rim Trailer Roars In
I didn't pass an opinion on it, though. I said the trailer has piqued my interest and Del Toro directing in a more mainstream vein is an interesting prospect for me. That's not the same as me saying: "OMG! THIS FILM WILL BE BEST EVS AND TOTES EMOSH". If my post was the direct opposite of Normal Control's post you'd have a point, but it isn't and you don't, bro.

Is it not more that GDT and Ellis were kind of drawing on the same kaiju tradition? If anything, Tokyo Storm Warning was a fairly blatant 'homage' to Neon Genesis Evangelion anyway. was expecting this to be a bit pulpier and OTT than this trailer suggests, to be honest. It's admirable to try and play straight 'giant robots vs. Godzilla', but I'd hoped for less darkly-lit action sequences and more oversaturated colours and badly-overdubbed dialogue (maybe not the latter). cool robot designs tho More

Actually, this is what we're getting instead of Neon Genesis. Weta did design work for a possible NGE movie about the middle of last decade, but nobody wanted to pay for it. GDT has taken the concept and made a movie that (hopefully) will sell internationally, which must be more reassuring to the studio. Now I'm holding out for a live-action Gunbuster! More
