    I'M CONFUSED. Is this film supposed to be set in present-day or in the future?

    i don't really know either, but i think it's sort of an alternate universe present.

    The viral marketing material (leaked documents and all) have been dated 2014 to 2016. So... very near future?

    Yes I've been meaning to watch Luther for quite some time now. But that's set in his home country. :p

    According to IMDB's cast list it's a near future where people have names like Raleigh Antrobus and Stacker Pentecost.

    Its about giant mechas fighting alien monsters from the bottom of the sea. Does it really matter?

    :D

    They certainly lack the iconic potential of a name like John Harrison.

    So basically H.P. Lovecraft's Tranformers?
    I'm so definitely in, the trailer was so mind-blowing that the back of my skull exploded showering bits of skull and brain on people around me. I'm still in intesive care, but I'll make it.

    There are scenes from both.
    The shot of the creature attacking the bridge is where the movie starts and takes place in the 'present day'.
    The rest takes place about 15-20 yrs in the future.

    Check out the video in this link to get more info from the man himself:
