Trailer Talk - Pacific Rim (2013)
The trailer gives us the basic premise: giant monsters rise up from within the Earth and mankind takes to piloting giant mechs to fight off the threat. It may be a very basic and nerdy plot, but with previous films like Blade II, the Hellboy movies, and Pan's Labyrinth under his belt, Guillermo del Toro has proven to have an unbelievable creative mind, both story and design-wise. I love that his cast is littered with great character actors such as Idris Elba and Ron Perlman (even Charlie Hunnam, Burn Gorman and Clifton Collins, Jr for that matter).
There are already quite a few movies on the slate for next year to get excited about, but after seeing this trailer I think that Pacific Rim takes the cake for me. Unless a teaser for something else absolutely blows my mind in the next couple of weeks, I fully expect this to top my Most Anticipated of 2013 list!
