Pacific Rim – New footage says BYOB!

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!
