That’s Bring Your Own BOAT!!!
Pacific Rim and Man of Steel are sitting pretty at the top of my most anticipated summer films list. So it was with enormous excitement that I received notification of Warner Bros. releasing new footage for Pacific Rim, that was recently unveiled at Wonder-Con.
I am speechless.
Actually I’m not but you know what I mean. The more I see of this film the more I am totally convinced that Guillermo Del Toro has knocked it sailing out of the park and then some! He just gets it. He knows monsters and he knows how to craft a shot to wring every last bit of awesome from it.
That final shot of a Jaeger smashing a Kaiju over the head with a container ship…….it’s mind blowing. In a couple of months time we are going to see gigantic scale monster vs mechanoid warfare on a scale that has never been done before. I cannot wait!
I can only hope that Pacific Rim takes a Kaiju sized box office haul and then maybe….just maybe we’ll get At The Mountains of Madness and Hellboy 3. Come on people, we can make these things a reality.
See you on opening night!
