commentary

By now I’m guessing you’ve watched the Pacific Rim trailer a couple of dozen times. What!? You haven’t!? Have you got some catching up to do. I’ve watched it so many times were you to string the viewings of the trailer end to end you’d have a movie as long as The Hobbit! Okay, I’m exaggerating, but I’ve watched the Pacific Rim trailer a lot is what I’m getting at.

But I haven’t yet watched it, with commentary. Sitting down with MTV director Guillermo del Toro adds a fun commentary to the amazing trailer chocked full of giant monsters, giant robots, and giant Idris Elba. I mean, he will be, once you see him kickin’ ass on the big screen.

Pacific Rim opens July 12th next year. Here’s a synopsis for ya,

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.
