Check out the new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim.
You guys, Idris Elba looks so good in this trailer, which means I am 100% ready for this film.
Despite appearances, Del Toro has stated before that the film is not an homage to Japanese mecha monsters:
I felt there was a chance to do something fresh, something new that at the same time was conscious of the heritage, but not a pastiche or an homage or a greatest hits of everything. One of the first things I did is make it a point to not check any old movies or any other references. Like start from scratch. [Hero Complex]
Pacific Rim opens in theaters July 12th.
