By Josh Wilding - 7/8/2013

















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 and an untested trainee — 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.


STARRING:

Charlie Hunnam as Raleigh Antrobus
Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori
Idris Elba as General Stacker Pentecost
Charlie Day as Newt Gotlieb
Ron Perlman as Hannibal Chow
Clifton Collins Jr. as Tendo Choi
Max Martini as Herc Hansen
Robert Kazinsky as Yancy Antrobus

God I hate when they try to refer to a movie as StarWars for a New Generation!
JoeMomma29 - 7/8/2013, 10:07 AM
Though I will be seeing this on Friday!

SpideyQuad - 7/8/2013, 10:19 AM
I hope the referring to the 70s version of Star Wars

@Levi: I would like to see it be better than The Dark Knight, Avengers is (pure opinion people, no flame war damn it!). Problem with The Dark Knight is its an excellent film but, it's an excellent crime film. It doesn't feel like a CBM. Batman Begins does, TDK does not. Therefore, I personally don't acknowledge The Dark Knight as a CBM. Also, it only reached a billion cause of a Janurary re-release and would be average if Ledger hadn't been cast and elevated the film. He's the only reason I ever watch it anymore...

Anyways, Pacific Rim and Elysium are going to be the best films of the summer. Calling it right now!
batesmotel - 7/8/2013, 10:26 AM
So it gonna suck then. Goddamit! Now i cant watch the [frick]ing movie because of the SW reference.

"Star Wars For A New Generation"
Yeah, let's not go there.
Melkaticox - 7/8/2013, 10:28 AM
You know what's "Star Wars for a new generations"?

Star Wars VII.

"Star Wars For A New Generation"

I like bold...but let's just back up a bit until the movie hits theaters.
EdgyOutsider - 7/8/2013, 10:33 AM
Star Wars for a new generation? Damn, probably sucks to that critic cause Star Wars is over rated. It's got amazing effects for its time but those movies just aren't good. They suck.
92Marvel - 7/8/2013, 10:36 AM
what I think will be the like star wars is guardians of the galaxy cause it got that big space adventure fill to it,
But I hope this movie will be good.
ndwwrestler2 - 7/8/2013, 10:41 AM
@Crossbones Put down the pipe.
EdgyOutsider - 7/8/2013, 11:09 AM
@Levi: I like that its unique to but, my gripe with the entire trilogy (which I love) is that it doesnt feel like a CBM, therefore I still won't acknowledge it as a CBM. The thing with the billion dollars thing is, Avengers had already grosse over a billion way before it was re-released. Name me one standout performance other than Eckhart and Ledger then I may reconsider what I said cause those two are the only ones that impressed me. Maggie Gyllenhaal can't act her way out of a paper bag and everyone else was just the same as Batman Begins. Also, why bring TASM into this? Just because I think Star Wars sucks? Your insults on TASM in what feels like (even though its not accurate) every article gets annoying bro.
EdgyOutsider - 7/8/2013, 12:01 PM
@Levi: I brought up the billion dollar thing with the re-release cause everyone praises how it's the first superhero movie to do so. Throwing in it's a re-release shows that it really isn't as successful as people make it out to be (just my logic) but still very, very successful. Eric Roberts is good but not a stand out, Aaron Eckhart and Heath Ledger are the only stand outs in the film and the reasons it was elevated.

Oh boohoo, I dissed on Star Wars. I get shit from my stepdad all the time cause Jurassic Park is my all time favorite movie and he hates it, doesn't mean I talk shit about another movie all the time. I hate The Cat in the Hat, I hate Green Lantern. I don't bring them up every time someone hates on a movie I like.
GodzillaKart - 7/8/2013, 12:10 PM
@Crossbones: Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine were fantastic. Granted they are always fantastic, but fantastic none the less. Bale sucked, of course.

I actually agree with you about Star Wars. I find them pretty much unwatchable now. I will say that they have some of the best sound effects in film history, though.
Ocelot - 7/8/2013, 12:13 PM
"Maggie Gyllenhaal can't act" Dafuq, she may not be a looker but she can damn well act.
HeadPool420 - 7/8/2013, 12:15 PM
Hopefully they are talking about the original Star Wars trilogy and not the prequels!!
PapaII - 7/8/2013, 12:17 PM
Hey, look: Bootlegbones being stupid again! What a dork! LMAO
PapaII - 7/8/2013, 12:21 PM
Hey, look: Bootlegbones and Godzillafart agree on something! Shocking! LMAO
GodzillaKart - 7/8/2013, 12:23 PM
Ah, PapaMidnight! I always enjoy your scintillating slander! Nobody can lay down an insult quite like you! I'm sure Crossbones is slinking away to pick up the pieces of his shattered ego!
fettastic - 7/8/2013, 1:17 PM
I guess the big difference between Pacific Rim and Star Wars is that Star Wars didn't bomb.
Sitterson - 7/8/2013, 2:01 PM
@fettastic Pacific Rim hasn't even come out yet, so you can't say it bombed. And it won't anyway.
Demonluv - 7/8/2013, 2:24 PM
@fettastic
And neither did Pacific Rim, seeing as, yunno, it's not out yet.
HorrorPilot - 7/8/2013, 2:28 PM
Well...they just jinxed this film too. Star Wars for a new generation...when will they ever learn?
ImnotDaredevil - 7/8/2013, 2:30 PM
Same comment about greenlantern if I remember?!
Joe6Pack74 - 7/8/2013, 2:48 PM
They said The Fifth Element was going to be Star Wars for a new generation.
jcfrommars9 - 7/8/2013, 2:57 PM
Maybe they should just keep Star Wars out of it and let these movies be their own. The Fifth Element certainly was.

"But what about ALL THE CIVILIANS that are dying!?!!? This movie sucks because the Jaegers aren't saving people!" - Dumbass critics of MoS
ManofwooD - 7/8/2013, 6:05 PM
lol.......I hope they don't pull off a M.O.S. where the jaegers end up cause more damage than the kaiju's
ndwwrestler2 - 7/8/2013, 8:05 PM
@ManofwooD Wait are you implying that Superman caused more damage than Zod and his crew?
thejon93rd - 7/8/2013, 9:34 PM
LOL, how did Superman cause more damage than Zod? He had a weapon that damn near destroyed the planet! You know why most critics hated it? Because the subject matter and tone was handled like The Dark Knight, to a point where you can literally feel the weight of the world on the Man of Steel's shoulders, where you are left almost completely devastated by the destruction you're viewing on-screen that you fear for every existing character in the film itself. It got intense and half the critics couldn't handle it... but hey, The Dark Knight was great and totally not dark or depressing or anything along those lines.
Maia87 - 7/8/2013, 11:53 PM
Pacific Rim is a 'Star Wars For A New Generation'?

LOL that's what they said for AVATAR.

MightyZeus - 7/9/2013, 1:49 AM
Pacific Rim has the potential to replace those horrid 'Transformers' movie's.

GodzillaKart - 7/9/2013, 6:23 AM
@raccoonwithrockets: "Pacific Rim has the potential to replace those horrid 'Transformers' movie's."

That is a far more accurate comment. I hope this shows that you can have a big, crazy, over the top special effects film that isn't poorly written garbage.
Transforminator - 7/9/2013, 7:20 AM
Wow, this movie may be the critical hit of the summer

PeterParker1991 - 7/9/2013, 1:36 PM
