I am geeking out for this movie! Giant Robots piloted by humans as they fight against giant monsters…anyone else immediately think that this is just Voltron (the version with the space cars not the cats) under a different name? Not that there is anything wrong with that mind you. The premise for Pacific Rim is just ridiculously cool, it has a very appealing cast and it is from the mind of Guillermo del Toro. If Man of Steel wasn’t coming out in the same year I would be majorly obsessed with this movie above all others.
So here I have gathered all of the goodies I have found across the Internetz pertaining to Pacific Rim in one place from the trailer to the viral vids to the promo images.
