On our radar for years now, Guillermo's del Toro's first foray into truly big, big, BIG budget filmmaking is nearly upon us. So after many a teasing image and viral video, we now have a solid, if very standard trailer-cut look at Pacific Rim. While I find myself less than enthused with the trailer itself, much of the content hidden under the flash-fades and booming Inception-clone tone, makes the 10-year old in me smile. But what do you all think? Does del Toro's monster-mash look more like proper homage or is this an out and out aping of the Kaiju classics and giant robo anime so many of us love, or at least being ScreenAnarchy readers, know a thing or two about. Talk it out in the comments.
Set for release on July 12, 2013, Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day (where was he in the trailer?).
