This is OUR Independence Day, We Band of Buggered!: Pacific Rim Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | December 13, 2012 | Comments ()

There is absolutely nothing about the trailer for Pacific Rim that I could pull out that looks any good. Oh sure, there's a giant creature strapped to an aircraft carrier, there are enormous roaring beasts ripping apart the Golden Gate Bridge, and there are of course honest to God (and Rick Hunter) 300 foot tall robots. There is even Idris Elba doing his best sci-fi Saint Crispin's Day speech. But as a whole it looks like the worst movie ever conceived, and every individual component seems like it should be ashamed to be on late night SyFy Channel.

Only at the same time, I am somehow more excited about this film than anything else coming out for the next year. Here's the trailer:

I am ashamed. I am excited. Oh, Guillermo, you had me at giant robots.
