Since San Diego Comic-Con, I’ve heard from a handful of people who got to see the PAC RIM footage in Hall H and the one word that kept dribbling out of their lucky faces was “epic” — now, after seeing the first trailer, I can only concur and weep because this film looks beautiful.
Directed by Guillermo del Toro, the movie stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, some the extra big-assed robots, and a few amazing monster aliens (or alien monsters) that have come from another dimension via a portal that lives in the part of the sea where Spongebob ain’t.
What more can I say? This looks like the kind of movie that filmmakers dream about making when they’re kids and the kind of technical spectacle that people get into the business to pursue.
Granted it’s only a trailer, but in del Toro’s hands, I know there will be something underneath the extremely impressive surface and I feel no need to be apprehensive or restrict the sweet, natural flow of my fanboy love and adoration.
This movie looks like it’s made of stars, I want to ride a unicorn to the screening and have the world’s first multiple orgasm solely by way of visual stimulation and I think we’re all gonna have that same reaction and experience that magic together. So check out the trailer and get your foreplay on, cause we’re cancelling the apocalypse y’all!
Pacific Rim comes out on July 13, 2013.
