FWS News Feed: PACIFIC RIM Trailer!
Here is the first trailer and the poster for Pacific Rim directed by Guillrmo del Toro. This is his take on the old Japanese monster movie of my childhood. This time, the massive monsters are coming from a dimensional portal rift in the Pacific ocean, and attacking the coastal cities. In response, mankind develops the massive metal military monsters, and have rocket powered fists (no joke), and piloted by two soldiers hooked into a unique control system. All and all, the talent of de Toro comes through in the trailer, and this could be enjoyable popcorn film. The steer size of the mecha in this film are on scale with the suits in Dynamo Joe and Robot Jox, and are designed to combat the size of their foe...much like ROBOTECH.
To be released in summer of 2013...so, I guess we will see if this is any good...
