Trailer Park: 'Pacific Rim'

In "Pacific Rim," Guillermo del Toro's aliens come not from the sky but the depths of the ocean.

A trailer for the sci-fi epic was shown at WonderCon in March, and its made its way to the Web. The two-and-a-half minute clip explains that the monsters show up in San Francisco first, with the "sole purpose to aim for the populated areas and take out the vermin - us."

Rather than just allow the aliens to wipe out humankind, pilots are enlisted to commandeer giant robots and take on the creatures hellbent on destruction.


Del Toro said at CinemaCon that shooting "Pacific Rim" "changed my life."

“The movie comes out from the deepest part of my being that is full of love," the director said. "The 12-year-old kid who is in love with giant monsters.”

Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and Charlie Day star in the action flick, which is slated to open July 12.

    The trailer looks badass. I think the bulges on the suits will be ok. In the George Clooney Batman movie (worst Batman EVER!) they not only had bulges, but nlpples as well. Except Batgirl of course, but she still had the lumps. Thats really no way to talk about your wife Bob. And I wouldnt have guessed sand would be much of a problem in central Canada, but never been there so what would I know. Hey, if she squeezes real hard, can she make a pearl? 🙂

      Agreed - Batman and Robin was a terrible film. My favorite superhero movie is the mid-1980s classic "The Erotic Adventures of D!ckman and Throbbin", starring the legendary John Holmes.

    I'm not sure when this film will show up at the old Galaxy Cinemas here in central Canada, but I'll be the first in line. I do agree with the woman earlier about the metal suits that accentuate certain, ahem, body parts. Not sure how kid friendly that'll be, but I'll gladly take the Mrs. to the show. She likes the science fiction almost as much as me. In fact, we were talking about these movie photos earlier and she remarked that she'd like to try on one of those armored get ups if given the chance - she's a still a real looker for a 45 year old gal - but figured it would be downright hot and uncomfortable for someone who's c o o t c h is covered with sand.

      Bob- I love your folksy comments. Sand in the lady parts seems to be a problem for you and the Mrs. Exactly, why is that? lol...

    I really like the anatomically correct metal bulges in the male and female armor. It would give me a stiffie if I had that equipment. Maybe I'll go to the bedroom for a private session with Mr. Buzzy for awhile...

    Giant robots reminds me of Jonny Sokko tv series from the '60s.
