    On the one hand, Pan's Labyrinth, Idris Elba without a fakey American accent and kaiju.

    On the other hand, Hellboy 2, Hellboy 2 and Hellboy 2.

    On the one hand, I won't be able to not think of GlaDOS.

    On the other hand, it looks so ridiculous, so stupid and so pointless that I can't help but think "...man, I'm going to see the crap out of this!"

    Get out! NOW!

    On a more serious note, sure it could be taken as a NGE american style, but why would that be a bad thing? It would remove all the stupid aspects like people becoming computers, clones and questionably ethical relationships but keep all the good things. Giant fighty robots.

    Mechs, GLaDOS and Stringer Bell (Idris Elba is popping up all sorts of places these days, I like that)? Sign me up.

    I want the red one. Because it's red and thus goes faster. Also four arms.

    Hey look, another trailer with the horn sound effect between shots!

    Also, I didn't know GlaDos would be in this.

    This is the sort of film that I shouldn't go to see in the cinema, because I'll be making stupid comments and laughing at all the wrong bits (I feel sorry to anyone who has sat by me and my sister in a film). I imagine it will be nothing I haven't seen before, with the same plot and utter lack of logic, doesn't mean I won't enjoy it while I'm watching it.

    Oh ,and since when is the most effective way to attack a monster with modern weaponry to get up nice, close and personal with F22s so you can use their cannons?

    Why does people insist on acting like stupid mindless fun is bad?

    Why do people insist on acting like stupid mindless fun can only equate to uninspiring, unoriginal, cliched, macho crap?

    Not that this means that Pacific Rim will be any of those, but you can forgive a few of us for having that impression after all the orange and teal action films of late. I think the trailer alludes to the film having some vague social critique. All I know is, elbow rockets. Fucking. Elbow. Rockets.

    Indeed, the perfect movie for a movie night with a bunch of buddies.( at home, not at the cinema.)

    It also looks like a sly way to present the concept of Power Rangers in year 2013. ;p

    There's a distinct lack of terminally depressed teenagers for this to be like Evangelion. If we really want to make an anime comparison, it seems to be closer to Gundam and its spin-offs.
