The first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" has landed. The film is an homage to Japanese giant monster films (called "Kaiju"), and features Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day as humans caught up in a robo-monster war. It looks like Godzilla vs. Transformers, stylishly made. "Pacific Rim" is the first film in five years that del Toro has directed. His last was "Hellboy 2" in 2008, following lauded "Pan's Labyrinth," which in 2007 was nominated for Best Foreign-Language Film at the Academy Awards. It won three Oscars, for Best Cinematography, Art Direction and Makeup. "Pacific Rim" lands July 12, 2013. »
