It's nice to see Gavadon getting work these days.

They just borrowed the Plot from Frank Miller's Big Guy and removed the annoying Rusty the robot.

Nah,  it's just Giant Robo without that annoying little Johnny Sokko kid running the machine.

Can't farking wait for this movie, but seeing Charlie from It's Always Sunny immediately took me out of that trailer.

All I kept saying was "Charlie's a scientist?! That's more far-fetched than the actual plot!"

Personally, I'm lamenting the completely lack of foam rubber, but I do like the suit the woman wears.  If only Fuji had worn something like that...

Methinks I'll have a hard time selling this one as a "date-night" flick with Mrs. Henry.
Is Hugh Jackman or Jon Hamm in it with their shirts off?

All I told my girlfriend was that Jax from Sons of Anarchy is going to be in a summer movie. She said to buy her a ticket. I asked if she wanted to know what it was about, she said it doesn't matter.

Jax and Clay star in: "Some VFX Guy's Demo Reel: The Motion Picture".

Loved it.

Movie looks cool.

Are you kidding? He's been inventing new weapons against terrible monsters for years!

It reminds me of "The Big O".
 
2013-04-29 04:47:10 PM  
I don't know why, but this gets a huge meh out of me. Maybe I need to see it in IMAX or something.

Anyways glad to see glad0s getting more roles. Did not expect her in oblivion

I thought that was J.J. Abrams at first.
Lured in by the next shot of a monster that looked like Cloverfield.

Same thoughts over here.

After seeing the one trailer with Ellen McLain's voice in there, I had no desire to see this movie.  Maybe it will be executed well, but I hate the idea of taking GlaDOS's voice out of the Portal universe.

texdent: [encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com image 284x178]


This. I know it's trite, derivative, CGI porn, but it's everything I wanted out of Cloverfield and Transformers in that trailer already. Plus, the voice for the mecha-startup process is GLaDoS!
 
2013-04-29 04:57:16 PM  
I know that people have been trying to get Evangelion greenlighted for years. This is probably the Hollywood tardification of those efforts.

Nope. Pledged my loyalty to Liberty Prime and I'm sticking with it. Communism is the very definition of failure!

They are not using the GlaDOS voice effect in the actual movie, just in the trailer.
 
2013-04-29 04:58:12 PM  
Was surprised to see Ashida Mana in the trailer.  I know she's popular in Japan but I didn't think she'd end up in a Hollywood blockbuster.

And now I have that damn song stuck in my head again.

It reminds me of every other over done, IP stealing, POS, sci-fi crap hollywood has tried to cram down our throats for the last 10 years.

funny, as she's credited as being in the movie.


that said, i REALLY want to see this flick, if only to relive my childhood with saturday morning kaiju...

Yea! What's up with these voice actors using their voice for other things!

/That was an easter egg for fans, the GlaDOS voice isn't in the actual movie

So it's Neon Genesis Evangelion but replacing ultra-mega-whiny teenagers with the Sons of Anarchy cast?

I'm okay with that.

This will be the best/worst movie of the year.
 
2013-04-29 05:06:48 PM  
Sorry this thing looks like "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" and I have no desire to see it.

Monsters fight Guys in Giant Robots. That's the exact plot of Power Rangers.

I kind of feel the same way.  I think partly it's because transformers has made me very wary of giant robots fighting things.  I think I just need my faith restored.

I will watch this movie though.  At the very least I expect it to have some quite impressive 'epic' moments.

Her voice, but not that specific effect. You didn't think she sounded like that in real life did you?

Ron Perlman's not good enough for her? Women used to go crazy for him in "Beauty and the Beast".

Did he just hit him with a boat?


Looks cool, but I'll wait for the DVD most likely.

you don't think some as nerdy as del toro wouldn't be like 'hey just do the voice from portal, yeah, that's good. ' and call it a day?

It's shocking that Hollywood hasn't milked the giant robot suit thing before. But I'm looking forward to this one.

So, it's Robot Jox in the water?

I don't think a super tanker would maintain its structural integrity when picked up like that.

Looks like the robot dragged an oil tanker down the road, then used it for a club. That's badass.

Ya that was pretty much my roomates reaction as well, she got to meet him 3 years ago when they were in town on a promotional tour. Said she woulda raped him in the bathroom. We had to hose her down and towel her off that night.
