This footage from Pacific Rim caused quite a stir when it came out at Wondercon last month. Originally, it was only meant to be presented for those lucky con-goers, but now, Warner Bros has graciously released it online for the whole world to see. Have a looksy. I think it sells the movie even better than any of the trailers up til now.
There are many great things in this footage. More info about the world. More robots. More monsters. More smashing of various things and cities. Charlie Day. Ron Perlman. Idris Elba. But look, there’s only one really important thing to take away from this:
A giant robot
picks up an oil tanker
and smacks a giant monster in the face with it.
A GIANT ROBOT PICKS UP AN OIL TANKER AND SMACKS A GIANT MONSTER IN THE FACE WITH IT.
We cancel the apocalypse July 12th. My ticket is bought.
