Pacific Rim CES Trailer

Posted January 8, 2013 05:04 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryA new teaser trailer for acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro's highly anticipated new project, Pacific Rim (2013), was released at CES in Las Vegas. The film, which is set to open in theaters across the United States on July 12th, stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman, and Diego Klattenhoff.

Plot description: 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.

Note: To see the 'viral teasers' for Pacific Rim, as well as a blueprint of the Gipsy Danger, one of the Jaegers that will confront Kaiju, click here.

It's like the Serious Transformers, without the goofy comedy-relief blacks and East-asians!
And the bridge attack looked like the Serious Godzilla, ALSO without the....goofy comedy-relief characters.

(Also, will Sony finally cash in and put the two 90's Godzilla vs. Mecha-Godzilla movies on Blu?)

Unfortunatly as with many movies with large animated objects....this movie has some bad scaling issues. Saw 3 in just the trailer....movie will be riddled with them:(. 1 min they look 500 feet tall...then next they look only a 100 ft tall.....hate that laziness.

I maintain my initial position that this movie looks like a pile of shit. What was Del Toro thinking making a silly movie like this? It's got disaster written all over it.

I never realized just how corny this movie looks. This looks like a big budget sci-fi film sequel to the sci-fi movie "Robot Jox". AHAHAHAHAHAHA

Funny that Splatterpunk expressed excitement for this movie and got his comment voted down so far it disappeared. That's what kind of site this is? It's got to be a single opinion or you can take a hike? Lame.
I think it's cool that Del Toro wanted to make a Kaiju movie but he's americanized it too much from what I've seen in the trailer. It'll be 5 years since my last Del Toro directorial fix and this is what I'm getting? Can't say I'm pleased. Looks like what a James Cameron version of transformers would be.

I still think this looks really cool. And this is coming from someone who thought the whole concept sounded retarded. No one makes a big, mainstream movie like Del Toro.

The scene with the first monster. Was taller than that suspension bridge and the golden gate bridge about 700ft tall, Brooklyn Bridge is almost 300 ft, Manhatten bridge is about 340 ft, george washington bridge about 600 ft. Just took an average. ......can't believe you got me to go that nerdy.

I agree with some others here. If this had been directed by someone else I would be looking at it as a bit of fun, but coming from Del Toro it just looks like a waste of time. I hope the trailer is misleading (wouldn't be the first time!).

I'm genuinely surprised by all the hate. This looks like all kinds of fun. GDT is a passionate filmmaker and never less than interesting. He gets a lifetime pass from me for Pan's Labyrinth alone!

Looks awful. Doesn't matter if GDT is involved. Brainless garbage is still brainless garbage no matter who directs it. I maintain Hunnam should never have been cast. He cannot act. The male equivalent of Kristen Stewart. He is Jax in every role. GDT is capable of better.

This looks fun. Time will tell if it's good or bad, and it will assuredly be corny in some parts, but it looks like fun.

Anyone ever heard the expression "Don't judge a book by it's cover."? Seriously, unreasonable, inaccurate, or expectations of any kind really will let you down or completely ruin your experience every time. This trailer is only a teaser, it hardly tells us anything about the film; but even full-length trailers don't do them justice, nor should they. For me personally, Del Toro has earned my respect with his past films. And while I do expect this to be more Hellboy than Pans Labyrinth - even though I shouldn't ascribe any expectations at all, as trailers are nothing more than overpriced marketing - I enjoyed both, so I remain optimistic for something a little deeper than Transformers, even though that may not be what Del Toro is even shooting for. Pessimism and cynicism never make your life any better, they just get your way.

I'll see it if only because Del Toro is behind it and Charlie Day is in it.

The description made me think of Evangelion (post apocalyptic [including depletion of natural resources, which I think Eva's red seas were related to], with ancient giant monsters that for whatever reason hadn't been the dominant native life till some sort of event, mankind's last hope being a few pilots neurally linked to giant mecha), and then the teaser trailer was visually reminiscent of Evangelion (the angles they show the mecha, all the ways they transport the mecha when not being piloted, the "plug suits" and what is possibly the equivalent of LCL in their helmets); even as far as two pilots in a Jaeger versus one per Evangelion goes, there was an episode where two pilots had to fight in perfect unison to defeat an enemy... Granted it will probably only be as close to Evangelion as Stealth was close to Macross Plus, but the parallels are still there.

*Sigh* Yet another film in which the fight for humankind is carried out in part on the Golden Gate Bridge. Looks as if they stole a page from the relatively recent Rise of the Planet of the Apes (a movie which I enjoyed well enough). I know some people feel a book shouldn't judged by it's cover, so to speak, but, seeing as a trailer is typically supposed to highlight a a little bit of the best a movie has to offer, which this trailer presumably does, I'm hard pressed to find any motivation to see this picture.

I still have a sliver of hope that maybe Guillermo del Toro's actual movie is better than this trailer is making it out to be. But I truly wouldn't bet anything on it. The trailer makes it look as utterly loud, brash, mindless and soulless as any number of run-of-the-mill sci-fi/robot/alien/disaster flicks.

As far as I'm concerned, Del Toro was at his creative zenith with Pan's Labyrinth. What happened?

Pans was an independent title, HellBoy and Blade not so, I think Del Toro works better with his own material.

Qualcomm is milking their investment. Did you notice the product placement a little over half-way through the clip?

Qualcomm
snapdragon

Probably b!tched about the duration of the placement so the producers threw them a bone. I bet Qualcomm is playing the sh!t out of it at CES as we speak... I bet the movie is just promotional cannon fodder for a video game that will debut on a snapdragon game system!

I'll be honest. The obligatory motivational speech concerns me. That is some really terrible dialogue. I don't have particularly high hopes for this. Before any herp-derpers tell me it's just supposed to be fun, bad writing is bad writing. If they gave a rats ass about quality they'd hire a better writer than they guy who wrote the Clash Of The Titans remake.
