Pacific Rim trailer almost makes me weep at its beauty
It’s been out for a few days, I know, but I really needed to share the trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Kaiju/mecha opus Pacific Rim (out July 11, 2013) in case – by some weird chance – you have managed to not gaze on its majesty. I try not to get too amped up by trailers, as a general rule, because it is far too easy for them to take a really bad movie and splice together 30 seconds of it such that it doesn’t look so bad. However, I am willing to go out on a limb and say that is not what is going on here. The whole thing – the Kaiju, the Jaegers, the GLaDOS voice – just has a way of getting past any defense I might have had to this sort of thing. I am in awe.
