PACIFIC RIM

The first trailer for Pacific Rim is here and it definitely is about giant monsters fighting giant robots. Some incredible visuals and creature designs on display and there should be some epic fight scenes.

However, I am not sure if seeing the pilots of the giant mechs doing exaggerated movements to control them looks a little bit…silly. Plus it could all end up looking like a really long video game cut scene.

Is that the voice of GLaDOS (Ellen McLain) from the Portal video games? If it is does that mean the whole film is a test?

Maybe I need to watch the trailer a few more times.

Let me know what you think of it.

Here is some more info on the film:

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure ‘Pacific Rim.’

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.

Oscar nominee Guillermo del Toro (‘Pan’s Labyrinth’) is directing ‘Pacific Rim’ from a script by Travis Beacham (‘Clash of the Titans’). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV’s ‘Sons of Anarchy’), Idris Elba (‘Thor’), Rinko Kikuchi (‘The Brothers Bloom’), Charlie Day (‘Horrible Bosses’), and Ron Perlman (the ‘Hellboy’ films). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.

Del Toro’s behind-the-scenes team includes Academy Award®-winning director of photography Guillermo Navarro, production designer Andrew Neskoromny, editor Peter Amundson, and costume designer Kate Hawley.

The film is due out on 12th July 2013
