Pacific Rim debuts a new trailer at CES, featuring more robots and less humans
In Guillermo Del Toro I trust, but I still can’t help but feel underwhelmed at the first two trailers we’ve seen for PACIFIC RIM. Is it just me, or does the film feel overly familiar? I know I’ve already complained about the resemblance to TRANSFORMERS and other films, but the new trailer that debuted at CES is really just more of the same. Guillermo Del Toro got to be a fanboy favorite by combining amazing visuals with beautiful, human stories and aside from part of a Idris Elba speech, we haven’t seen many humans in PACIFIC RIM. Is he going to bother telling a human story, or is he just going to have giant robots fight giant sea creatures? Anyway, decide for yourself and check out the new trailer, which was part of Qualcomm’s presentation at CES.
PACIFIC RIM stars: Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Rinko Kikuchi, Robert Maillet and Burn Gorman. The Guillermo del Toro film will hit theaters on July 12, 2013.
