Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ Footage Blows WonderCon Attendee’s Minds!

I’ve been becoming more and more skeptical of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim as Warner Bros. has been releasing poster after poster of the film’s Jaeger robots. To me, I started to think it was going to be just another Transformers movie. Apparently, it’s not. Apparently, it’s off-the-wall amaze balls. Here are a few tweets out of the WonderCon panel where del Toro showed off some new footage from the flick set in a future in which malevolent creatures threaten the earth, and the planet must band together and use highly advanced technology to eradicate the growing menace.

Erin Maxwell ‏of Variety writes, “Pacific Rim is everything I ever wanted from every movie ever made. Thank you. #wondercon2013

Melissa Molina stated: “#PacificRim footage was f–king amaaaazing. I need to see this movie NOW #wondercon

Devin Faraci of Bassass Digest uses all caps to express his excitement: “A JAEGER HITS A KAIJU IN THE FACE WITH A CARGO SHIP IN THE PACIFIC RIM WONDERCON TRAILER.

Chris Eaton adds: “#pacificrim is no Cloverfield the 2 minutes shown @WonderCon blew that film out the water

Warner Bros Pictures added a little bit of juice, “Guillermo del Toro says each time he sees #PacificRim, he still has a “sh*t-eating grin” on his face, and it’s “absolute heaven.” #WonderCon

Hopefully the new footage hits the Web tomorrow. Until then, we’ll wait patiently for July 12 when the world wages war against giant monsters!

    How can anyone doubt a film directed by Del Toro?

      Hellboy made me sleepy. However,when he’s not playing with the Hollywood bs, he amazes me.

        I can understand a difference of opinion, but there’s no way the film is a disservice to the source material.

    i wonder if he explained the misspelling of “Philippines” in that picture they released of the creature’s poop a couple of weeks ago (they had it Phillipines). lol.

    i trust Del Toro but thus far i’m just not feeling this movie. i’m sure it’ll be good/great though.

    How anybody cannot be excited about a Jaeger hitting a Kaiju in the face with a cargo ship, then sorry you misspelled Oprah with Bloody-Disgusting.. Easy mistake.

    Just spoke to a friend that was at the panel yesterday and he said the trailer’s better then the other two with alot more detail. Bad part is that I guess Guillermo said the footage was just for them. Damn. I tried youtubing for it but the only thing up are some video’s from the panels which I haven’t watched. So, whatevs for now. But I like my sci-fi to so I’m gonna watch Upside-Down again. Good movie,,, for my taste at least.
