‘Pacific Rim’ Images Need Less Talk, More Do

Warner Bros. has released a yet another still from Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim… but again, don’t expect to see any robots or monsters in it. While the trailer does tease one of the giant creatures, we could use more action-packed imagery, instead of pics of people standing around talking. Yawn.

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.

    Mr.D, i agree 1000000% with your title of this article. i’m excited for this movie but most if not all of the pics released thus far are snoozers.

    I’m in this for GDT’s directing and Kikuchi Rinko, one of the most talented actresses out there today. Can’t wait to see this in its full-screened glory.

      Not to mention Rinko’s not bad looking. I liked her quirky retro style look in Brothers Bloom. I like her look in this one too. Her semi-bob haircut has a sort of retro anime character feel to it, which fits with the overall theme of the movie. The scene in the trailer where they show her with the umbrella/parasol and black dress almost seems like it could’ve been something straight out of the first SD Macross or first MS Gundam cartoons.
