Luke Owen discusses the new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro homage to classic kaiju cinema, Pacific Rim

As a member of the male species, I am tuned into thinking that giant robots are cool. Couple that together with some giant monsters and have the pair duke it out over easily-destroyable landscapes and you get the debut trailer for 2013’s Pacific Rim from Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro.

This is a movie that I have kept on my radar since it was initially announced mainly due to my love of the kaiju genre and my appreciation for the work that del Toro has produced. The viral marketing campaigns kicked in a few weeks ago and got me even more excited beginning with the Kaiju warning test and the Kaiju attack news footage. And now we have a trailer, and it has risen the excitement bar to a whole new level. »
