It was a long time coming, but it was worth the wait.
On 12/12/12, the trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s epic monster movie, PACIFIC RIM was released online. If you watch online, I hope you can hook your laptop up to your big screen: it is the only way you can do justice to the massive kaiju and Jaeger’s that make up the two minute preview.
This morning (12/13), “Pacific Rim” is trending on Twitter, and the reaction on the social media sight has been incredibly enthusiastic. Here are a few of the latest posts as of this writing:
@skymovies: Director Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM gets its first trailer. It’s big robots vs bigger monsters. Looks awesome.
@Paul_Dini: Sweet mango chutney! Trailer for Pacific Rim has just devoured my brain
@Annaleen: My mouth actually dropped open as I watched the Pacific Rim trailer. Giant monsters fill me with visceral joy.
And my favorite:
@kumailn: I just became pregnant and the father is the PACIFIC RIM trailer
Of particular note is the number of fans on Twitter that immediately recognized the voice of GlaDOS in the trailer (actress Ellen McLain), lending more street cred to trailer’s premiere.
So, without further ado – here is the trailer, and couple of one-sheet posters making the rounds. Enjoy!
