Awesome New PACIFIC RIM Trailer Hits

I had my issues with the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Robots vs Monsters flick, but this stunning new footage which debuted at Wondercon is undoubtedly a big improvement. See Jaegers and Kaiju tear lumps out of each other after the jump..

By Mark "RorMachine" Cassidy - 4/29/2013


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 (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.


Pacific Rim will be released on July 12, 2013.

WAY better! I'm actually looking forward to this now.
TheAbomination - 4/29/2013, 10:27 AM
Holy crap. That looked insane.
PaulRom - 4/29/2013, 10:27 AM
This looks insane. So much better than the first trailer. Much more excited for this film now.
skidz - 4/29/2013, 10:29 AM
I hope the movie gives a better explanation for needing two pilots who are doing the EXACT same movements. It still seems rather redundant.
skidz - 4/29/2013, 10:29 AM
Kick ass trailer, though.

This sits behind Star Trek and Man of Steel for movies of the summer.

Iron Man 3 = 7.5/10

UrbanTheEmcee - 4/29/2013, 10:31 AM
Now I want to see this. MegaZord vs Cloverfeild
MrCBM56 - 4/29/2013, 10:32 AM
This looks awesome! And Charlie Day looks great. Never knew he could act like that! Can't Wait!!!
MarkV - 4/29/2013, 10:34 AM
I hate how the two pilots have to dance around next to each other like "Dance, Dance Revolution."

I just can't get over it. Ruins the whole film for me. Looks so breathtakingly dumb.
TaoOfTheBatman - 4/29/2013, 10:36 AM
@skidz i know right? i don't get the two pilots thing either but it can't stop my stoke for this movie! that trailer was awesome!
JoeMomma29 - 4/29/2013, 10:36 AM
LOL at blackandyellow,

The trailer looks good!
ATrueHero1987 - 4/29/2013, 10:38 AM
Damn! That trailer goes hard!!
ItsNotASchooner - 4/29/2013, 10:39 AM
For those that are wondering about the two pilots thing. Del Toro has brought this up in interviews, saying that each pilot controls one half of the Jeager, left side and right side, and said the movie will explain why this needs to be. He also said we will see what happens when only one person tries to pilot a Jaeger by themselves.
So have faith bruthas.
birdfists - 4/29/2013, 10:39 AM
I'm not sure if this look awsoe or terrible
toocool - 4/29/2013, 10:40 AM
Is this not just power rangers?
SigmaCenturion - 4/29/2013, 10:40 AM
Would rather see the animes that most of the ideas were pulled from. Oh and Big O .
NeoBaggins - 4/29/2013, 10:43 AM
First time this thing got my attention.
lntrn8 - 4/29/2013, 10:45 AM
Bitch slapped by the Queen Mary!!

ndwwrestler2 - 4/29/2013, 10:47 AM
I hate that this is going to be compared to every anime show and big giant robot film that was ever created.

I know it was inevitable that this would happen. But to me, if GDT's reputation means anything then this movie will be better than a rip-off.

I expect a 8/10 from most fans.
l0rdleg0las - 4/29/2013, 10:50 AM
when i first heard about this movie it was on my radar but wasn't all that enthused by it. then the first preview came and my interest rose and i thought, maybe i'll check this out at the theater, but this trailer has me at the edge of my seat impatiently waiting for the release date.
unknownfacts - 4/29/2013, 10:50 AM
Looks interesting might have to check this one out.
pedroparker - 4/29/2013, 10:51 AM
Viva del Toro, viva Mexico!
InfiniteMonkey - 4/29/2013, 10:57 AM
Pacific Rim is a F**King Beast!

Need to win tickets for this.
thatcoldblackcloud - 4/29/2013, 10:58 AM
Holy F*ck! I'm swiming in my own cum right now!!!!!!!
bayouboyz - 4/29/2013, 10:59 AM
I still believe in Charlie Day for Rocket Raccoon.
DoubleD - 4/29/2013, 11:00 AM
I will be there opening weekend. Looks BIG & AWESOME
EpicMan - 4/29/2013, 11:03 AM
Actually looks nice.
brazilianbatman - 4/29/2013, 11:05 AM
it looks fine I bet 15 years old boys and geeks are going to love it but its definitely not in the same league as iron man 3 and man of steel
SimyJo - 4/29/2013, 11:06 AM
I think he should of said an Arnold'ism when he twats the monster with a boat! - something like: "Hey! - Ship happens!"

spiderman1995 - 4/29/2013, 11:06 AM
Reminds me of neon genesis eva
SimyJo - 4/29/2013, 11:08 AM
Either that or "Eat ship and die!"
OniGoji - 4/29/2013, 11:09 AM
@toocool

There are no megazords, there's no combining, there's no morphing time. There are no high school power ranger kids/teens. There's no power watches, or power coins, there's no niche evil villain trying to take over the world, there are no villain of the week henchmen that grow into large giants.

This is nothing like power rangers. If all you have is well people are piloting giant mechas to battle against large threats then you might as well call any other movie or show that has that power rangers.

Seriously these comparisons are getting old.
DCjohnny - 4/29/2013, 11:09 AM
