Pacific Rim look like it could be an awful lot of fun. Just the idea is great – 300ft tall monsters are spewing out of a portal deep beneath the Pacific and attacking the coast, and so humanity fights back with gargantuan robots piloted by people. Now the first trailer for the movie has arrived, which makes it look even better, shot through with Guillermo Del Toro’s signature style.
It’s a movie that’s going to be told on a massive scale, with huge amounts of very cool special effects. Thankfully the trailer also gives us a little bit of the plot, suggesting someone is sending these monsters and we don’t know who.
The film is due out July 12th, 2013, but enjoy the trailer and new poster above and below.
