Giant Robot and Monster from Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" Revealed

Posted: November 29th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Giant Robot and Monster from Guillermo Del ToroSubmit Comment
Today we have a bunch of viral marketing material for Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming "Pacific Rim" sci-fi film. The first piece is a blueprint of the giant robot, called Jaeger. The second is a news report of a giant monster (Kaiju) attacking San Francisco. Check everything out below.

Plot: Legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and begin a war that takes millions of lives and consumes humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.

On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) - who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Wow That first image is pretty awesome. Looks like how Michael Bay's Transformers should have looked. Nice work to whomever.

As for the second link, more found footage sh*t. Too much like The Day Godzilla Came to Tokyo. Really. Seen this sh*t before.

And here I was thinking del Toro was some sort of seminal cinematic savant. Guess not.

Ultraman the movie, then.

Just don't let the Asian woman drive the robot, or we're f*cked.

the image resembles Evangelion, so forget to ever see a live-action rendition of it, although with the release of the forthcoming tetra-logy of films probably that will be it.

ha, Probably it wont be a found footage film, but I'm afraid it might be something like Evangelion, indeed.

You know, The Remakes of the Chan-Wook Park trilogy of films, All you Need is Kill and all that.

And Angus T. John reading and preaching the Bible and Charlie Sheen thinking he is John Constantine.

'ok guys...let the woman drive for a bit...'

"Robot c*cks", if we're talking JB's fantasy mecha-manga film.

Oh Alex, I admire how slow you are.

First of all, the robot in the first picture isn't called "Jaeger". It's very clearly called "Gypsy Danger".

Second, you're missing two other robot blueprints. The Russian Jaeger "Cherno Alpha", and the Japanese Jaeger "Coyote Tango".

Goddamn.

And the Austrailian Jaeger "Striker Eureka".

You know what, why the f*ck am I even bothering.

You think this looks way better than Cloverfield based on that short clip? Mmmkay.

From what I saw of the monster the effects looked a bit shoddy. But hopefully that's not the end result.

This looks like sh*t!

And if the final film resembles to anything close to Cloverfield than it's ÜBER sh*t!

I won't even download it, I swear.

I have high hopes for this one. Guillermo Del Toro is one of my favorite directors. Huge fan of Pan's Labyrinth and the Hellboy series. The robot designs are really awesome. I'm just hoping the monsters are on that same level. At this point, the plot doesn't interest me. Let's get some beat downs and visual aesthetics.

I really appreciate that Man in Black. I really do. Thank you :)
