Guillermo del Toro Talks Us Through The 'Pacific Rim' Trailer

In case the robots housing monsters weren't clear enough the first time around. We were all treated yesterday to our first good look at robots housing giant monsters when the trailer for Pacific Rim premiered. Now that enough time to drool has passed, MTV caught up with Guillermo del Toro to get an explanation about what the trailer shows. Also to discuss del Toro's fondness for punching giant monsters with the aid of elbow rockets, and how the finished film makes this preview look like Howard's End. I don't recall the punches in Howard's End being this awesome.


Robots House Giant Monsters In 'Pacific Rim' Trailer

Suck it, monsters! The first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim has debuted and it is a real wake-up call for monsters from the deep. When gigantic creatures emerge from an intergalactic portal in the Pacific Ocean, they just assume that humans will let them destroy our best bridges and throw cars into the water. Think again, monsters. Little do they know that we possess the technology to make gigantic robot suits that will march right up to them and punch them in their monstrous faces. Didn't see that one coming, huh? Just wait until we figure out how to give swords to those robots. 'Merica!!


The Final 'Pacific Rim' Trailer Explains The Science Of Punching Monsters

It doesn't have to make sense. Less than two weeks away from its theatrical release, Pacific Rim is back with its biggest and most final trailer yet. Which I have to applaud. Not because its that great of a trailer but because the marketing team has gotten an amazing amount of mileage out of robots punching monsters and Idris Elba yelling about canceling the apocalypse. At this point, I'm numb to that line. They'd better sprinkle an F-bomb in the theatrical version if they want me to cheer and scream 'Murica!!


Giant 'Pacific Rim' Monster Attacks The Heck Out Of San Francisco

Oakland just got sh*ttier. As if life in San Francisco weren't difficult enough with the high rents and modern times inciting the slow extermination of the city's bohemian roots and culture. Now they've got to worry about giant kaiju climbing from the ocean and trashing the place. If it's not one thing, it's another. The new viral clip for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim shows a giant monster destroying the Golden Gate Bridge and fighting jets via crappy news footage. And while we don't get a great peek at the monster or the giant mechanized robot suits that will be used to slay these Godzillas, it's enough to get everyone excited. Those monsters started this and mankind will finish it. That was our best bridge.


Charlie Day Does A Killer J.J. Abrams Impersonation In The 'Pacific Rim' Trailer

Big robots are the natural predators of big aliens. Here's Charlie, and some giant robots, and some giant aliens, courtesy of Guillermo del Toro in a film that promises to be everything that Godzilla and, more recently, Battle: Los Angeles couldn't. It looks to be a huge scale for any director, so let's hoep that del Toro's smaller sensibilities allow him to toe the line here and create something that isn't just a Roland Emmerich redux. Hiring Charlie as "disheveled scientist" may not exactly breed confidence there, but it's Charlie, and we'll take him when we can get him.


Trailer For 'Legend Of The Fist' Has Kicking, Punching, And Shooting

Sorry, this is not the Dreamworks Animation film 'Legend of the Fish' You might not be familiar with the character of Chen Zhen, who is "returning" in the new Hong Kong action movie Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen. A quick lesson: The character was originally played by Bruce Lee in the 1972 kicking/punching film Fist of Fury. Since then, the character has been played by several different actors in several different remakes/sequels/television adaptations, the most recent of which is Legend of the Fist. Whew! Remind me not to complain about sequels and reboots here in the United States, where compared to China the situation is neat and orderly. Anyway, the trailer is pretty cool, with a lot of swanky period sets and awesome stunts from Donnie Yen. He also puts on a costume inspired be The Green Hornet's sidekick Kato, who of course was played by Bruce Lee in the 60s TV show "The Green Hornet." Sold yet?
