Top 5 Moments: Pacific Rim Trailer # 1

GIANT ROBOTS vs GIANT INTER DIMENSIONAL MONSTERS

Do you really need more?  Thankfully, Pacific Rim is directed by geek god Guillermo Del Toro so MORE is exactly what’s coming next July.  The world (outside of Comic Con) finally got a look at these beasts and bots in action and it… Is… Glorious!

Here is the official synopsis:

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.

Weeks ago, I named Pacific Rim as my number 1 anticipated movie of the 2013 summer movie season.  While Man of Steel is inching closer, Pacific Rim is just to HUGE.  Robots are going to fight Monsters!

This trailer is overflowing with epic moments.  I’m so happy this trailer didn’t suck.  Here are my top 5 moments!  Bring on Trailer 2.

5. JAEGERS!

These massive robots look unreal.  One shot in particular shows three of them gearing up for battle.  Might we see a couple 3 on 1 fights?

It might be necessary considering how this Jaeger gets tossed around:

4. CANCEL THE APOCALYPSE!

Idris Elba.  Giving an awesome speech right before the giant robots fight the giant monsters.  This movie is real folks!

3. KAIJU ATTACKS BRIDGE

We’ve been given glimpses of the Jaegers but the Kaiju have been virtually unknown until now.  What an introduction!  This massive beast takes down a bridge and multiple jet fighters.

2. MASSIVE MONSTER

The final shot of the trailer shows a massive creature from another dimension.  What is this movie!?

1. ROBO-ROCKET FIST

Robots punching monsters in the face is one thing but rocket powered fists really raises the bar doesn’t it?  Thank you Guillermo Del Toro!
