International Spot For ‘Pacific Rim’ Regains My Excitement

…And that’s because of the Kaiju. The rush of excitement I had at the beginning of this spot, at a shot of the Kaiju that I’d already seen, reminds me that while I may not be salivating over the robot stuff in Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, I’m definitely stoked for the giant monsters.

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.

Head inside to check it out. Pacific Rim crests July 12th.

    There was not a single frame of new footage in this trailer. This site’s coverage of this flick has been weird.
