For folks sick and tired of remakes, reboots, sequels, prequels etc…, but love action flicks you’ll appreciate Pacific Rim. Believe it or not, it’s actually an original concept not based on a graphic novel, comic book or other pre-existing source material. Who knew movie studios still had the balls to produce a big budget summer film with untested material?
Pacific Rim is from the brainchild of Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth) and writer Travis Beachman. Giant monsters arise from a crevice in the Pacific Ocean, resulting in a war which takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity’s resources. At first glance it looks like the lovechild of Godzilla and Transformers but it’s much more badass. The film stars Charlie Hunnam (LOVE), Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman. The new trailer was never intended to debut online, but Del Toro caved when fans craved for more.
“This was originally intended for only WonderCon, but after listening to so many of you asking for more of the movie online, I think it’s time for me to show you more footage. Enjoy, my friends!” – Guillermo Del Toro
