    My assumption is... It will be crap, but people will defend because its del Toro and Pan's was stupendous.

    I hope they make some other references to Black Mesa and Aperture Science....

    After all, Del Toro's fandom was what got Ellen McLain a role.

    He already said that voice will be changed and sound a lot less like GLaDOS.

    I forgot Ron Perlman was going to be in this too. And the world needs more Idris.

    Is it just me or do these mechanical beasties look like Weapon rejects from FF7?

    Ahhhhhhhh, like a classic Toho movie brought into the 2010s. Looks like exactly what I wish the 1998 Godzilla had been.

    Or it could be the Battleship of 2013. So hard to tell.

    Ron Perlman dressed as a pimp in the Matrix. That alone is worth the price of admission.

    EDIT -- And was that the Cloverfield monster getting coldcocked with the tanker?

    Everything about Pacific Rim screams "Big, loud, blockbuster fun". And being a Guillermo Del Toro movie I'm pretty sure there will be some decent human interaction among all the spectacle and creative set pieces. Which instantly elevates it above pap like Battleship or Transformers.

    Imagine if Pacific Rim turned out to be Cloverfield 2 in disguise. After all both are big budget American films based off of Japanese Kaiju movies! And Hollywood doesn't like spending big bucks on anything that isn't an established franchise these days. Gosh it all makes sense now!
