There’s a new trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s breathlessly awaited summer blockbuster, Pacific Rim. After hearing almost nothing during production, we’ve been treated to some tidbits of late including the first incredible trailer and a few stills
This latest trailer is shorter, tighter and gets to the good stuff much quicker – namely the human “pilots” enmeshed in the giant WiFit game involving the giant mecha soldiers battling the giant mecha aliens. It still includes Idris Elba’s rousing Independence Day-esque pep talk in which he cancels the apocalypse Boo Ra! (Idris deserves a giant-mega hit although I hope that doesn’t mean an end to “Luther”!)
Pacific Rim already has a sequel in the works , and why not. There’s no way this thing isn’t going to be GINORMOUS! With a screenplay by del Toro and Travis Beacham (already writing the sequel), the film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Diego Klattenhoff, Clifton Collins, Jr, Burn Gorman and Ron Perlman and hits theaters on July 13, 2013.
