It’s only a little over two weeks before Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures‘ Pacific Rim releases and just in case you don’t know what to expect or know why you should be excited, an extended trailer has been released. Though, if you’re an avid reader of our site you’re probably already going out of your mind in anticipation of Guillermo del Toro‘s giant robots vs giant monsters movie. Why wouldn’t you be? Everything to love is right there: Del Toro, robots, kaiju.
This extended, 2-minute spot shows more of the Jaegers’s launch sequence, a longer version of Idris Elba‘s “apocalypse” speech, and has a stronger emphasis on the human struggle. If it weren’t for the giant robots and monsters, I’d believe Pacific Rim was a WWII flick. It’s got all the staples: people rallying, an almost insurmountable threat, Elba’s rousing “Battle of Agincourt” speech.
Starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff, Pacific Rim opens July 12.
