Guillermo del Toro Delivers Giant Robots and Monsters In Epic ‘Pacific Rim’ Trailer, Poster!


Warner Bros. has just blasted out the first official trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, and it looks EPIC! I rarely go all-caps like that, but it looks like Del Toro has been given the ultimate sandbox to play in and he built the ultimate castle. Also added in a super sweet teaser banner and official one-sheet.

In the film, “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.

The battle begins on July 12, 2013. Head inside to check it out!!

  • SelfishMan912

    looks like an american version of mobile suit gundam, except with monsters instead of politics.

  • HOLY SHIT!!! THE VOICE IN 1:01 to 1:08 (the computer voice… “Pilots, ready to connect” is Ellen McLain. It’s freaking GLaDOS (Portal 1 & 2)!!! I am so damn stoked for this now it’s not even funny.

  • FreddyKrueger13

    This looks fucking sweet as all hell! I was counting on much, really wasn’t even interested, but this just blew me away!

  • Rops

    Seeing as how Godzilla is my favorite franchise and I adore anything with giant monsters, all I can say is: NNNNNGGGGFFFFUUUH!!!

  • lovezoid

    Fuck that looks awesome. The best things about this is that it’s an original story, it has no franchise obligations, it hasn’t been overhyped (hell – only film nerds even know this has been coming – your average joe draws a blank look) – and it’s Gulliermo motherfucking Del Toro!!!

  • Wolvenmist

    I’m soooooo going to see this. I’m just glad that Hollywood is stepping up and doing a movie like this. I don’t think they could have picked a better director for this. Best line in the trailer, “Let’s go fishing.”

  • Zombie-Killa

    Bad ass. Definitely, going to see this, because I’ll watch anything with Guillermo del Toro’s name behind it.

  • Ravinus

    Looks fantastic. I can’t wait.

  • HMH

    complete nerdgasm

  • Aaron Emery

    Oh. Wow. I’m glad SOMEBODY still knows how to work great fx!!!

  • G-Bibby

    Sweet…. That speech at the end seems like it may rival Bill Pullmans rallying speech in Independence Day hahaha

  • Ultrazilla

    Wait? Where are all the “this isn’t horror, why is this on Bloody Disgusting? Waaaaaaaaaa!” idiots? Eh, I’m sure they’ll troll by eventually. Really looking forward to this, and GLAD that we’re getting coverage here!

  • MinaDoll7

    YESSSS!!! FINALLY!!!!! I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!! i’ve been following updates on this movie for almost a year! AHHHH!!!! There’s all these post-apocalyptic and modernistic movies coming out in 2013 like PR, After Earth, World War Z, Oblivion. OHHHH I CAN’T WAIIITTTTT!!!!

  • sonofseptember

    This isn’t horror. Why is this on Bloody Disgusting? Waaaaaaaa.

    • Aaron Emery

      Idiot! 🙂

  • ThunderDragoon

    Finally! I’ve been waiting for another monster movie to see in theaters since Cloverfield. Looks so awesome.

  • flesheater24

    I have no words. Just. EPIC. ORGASM. HOLY FUCKING SHIT. Does that sum it up ?

  • way to much like Evangelion…original idea? I think not

    • Jason Bender

      If you thought that Evangelion was about combat between robots and aliens… I feel sorry then. The combat in Evangelion was secondary. Also that argument is quite void because lack of proof. Giant robots fighting monsters has been a staple in Japan for a lot longer than Evangelion. This movie, if I HAD to compare, would be closer to Gigantor, GoLion aka Voltron, Macross aka Robotech and Mazinger and Ultraman than Evangelion.

      I think it looks fantastic!

  • evenscarier

    This looks great! Something to look forward to this summer!

  • TheWalkingFlat

    a perfect Movie to enjoy in a cinema !

  • Looks like any garbage Michael Bay might have made.

  • divisionbell

    Looks good so far. Kinda reminds me of Inhuanoids. Only with huge mech suits rather than individual suits.

    • doomas10

      inhumanoids! damn that show kinda scared me when I was a kid!

  • claw00

    Jax and Clay save the world!

    • gordongirl_18

      I didn’t even have to look at the cast to recognize the voice in the beginning! Jax Teller versus giant monsters? I’m in!

  • doomas10

    GDT – brilliant director. It’s good to see fun action packed and gorgeous effects movies ^_^

  • djblack1313

    THIS LOOKS AWESOME!!! i’m SO in!!!

  • Canucklehead

    I don’t want to say I told ya so, but I told ya so. This is going to be all kinds of sweet. Not watching another second of footage from this until it hits the big screen.

  • EvilHead1981

    Now that looks like a great Western take on Japanese anime/sci-fi movies. So many times you have Westerners inspired by anime, but kinda get it wrong visually(given they say it’s supposed to be heavily inspired) or just don’t get it. The pitch for the Akira movie seemed like that, among a slew of “faux-anime” Western(mainly American and Canadian) cartoons that totally over exaggerate everything. This movie looks like one of those instances where you have people behind it that “get it”. Some people like things, but when they try to recreate it, it’s obvious they’ve pulled certain things they believe are essential, but it’s really just their perception. Other people can look at something and just “know” what works and what doesn’t.
