Ok, ‘Pacific Rim,’ you look like Rock-Em-Sock-Em robots meet Godzilla and – honestly – that’s enough to reel me in.
Sure, I would have liked to have seen more of the film earlier so I could be this excited as of last July. But I didn’t slit anyone’s throat to get into Hall H and apparently, that was my mistake.
Total Film has the exclusive concept art from Doug Williams. One shows just how big a Jaeger (the robot) is as he towers over some sort of secure Russian facility. The other shows, like, a Skull Temple, probably made from a dead Kaiju (giant monster). Which seems odd because the Pacific Rim trailers thus far made it seem like Kaiju attacks are fairly new, so I’m interested to see if the Asian metropolis shown built around this skull adapted to it or if the skull predates the city.
WORLD BUILDING, yo!
Which I find very comforting. I was in when I thought it was just monster fights, but any sort of Del Toro-created world is bonus.
Pacific Rim is coming to theaters this summer which is not soon enough.
