A Couple of PACIFIC RIM Teasers to Get You Ready for Summer 2013


I think I might have a most anticipated movie already for next summer. If the buzz out of Comic Con was any indication, PACIFIC RIM will be THE movie of next summer. I feel almost bad for putting that kind of pressure on the film because like with many summer films in the past, I could be setting myself up for major disappointment.

PACIFIC RIM is Guillermo De Toro's newest directing endeavor. The film features 25-story tall machines (Jaegars) and evil sea monsters (Kaijus). Giant Kaijus have started rising from the sea that begins a war that starts taking millions of lives. Jaegars are created to combat these monsters, which are controlled by two operators. Del Toro said at Comic Con that he as set out not to make a war movie, but to make more of an adventure film.

Check the teasers after the break.

The first up is a quick intro into the world where they test the Kaiju Emergency Alert System.

But now to the real teaser.

The shaky cam reporting has a bit of a CLOVERFIELD feel, but it ended up just building the anticipation for me. No footage of the Jaegar machines just yet, but the couple frames of the Kaiju monsters look quite frightening and awesome, especially the shot of the monster on the deck of the aircraft carrier. With any sci-fi film, there's always the hesitation that the film might end up being very cheesy, but I'm putting my trust in del Toro to blow this one out of the water (pun intended).

PACIFIC RIM stars Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi, and Charlie Day and will be released  July 13, 2013.
