(Apple)   Summer 2013 just got insanely better. Guillermo Del Toro, giant robots, Kaiju on a grand scale and freaking Idris Elba. It's the trailer for "Pacific Rim"   ( trailers.apple.com) divider line

buntz: No way they use GLaDOS in this movie and NOT have it mean something. It's TOO distinctive a voice to have it just be "a voice"
It would be like having Darth Vader's voice, WITH the breathing, as another voice over. It's too iconic to be coincidence.
I say this movie is a precursor, and it's all part of the same universe? Maybe now we know what Cave Johnson was doing all this testing for? To fight monsters?

Cave Johnson here. Now, I've been hearing that there are rumors circulating among Aperture employees that we've discovered giant monsters from outer space. Let me be clear that those rumors are a bunch of bull.

Believe me, if there were giant space monsters out there we would have found them, and the boys down in Giant Space Monster Fighting Tech Development wouldn't be sitting on their asses all day playing cards. Do those layabouts think I'm made of money? Well they shouldn't because those transfusions didn't take.

Now there also have been rumors that the new Portal Device XK-6 we've been trying out have been turning test subjects into giant monsters. We'll be reverting back to the old reliable XK-5s until we get that worked out.

So get off your duffs and get to work, Giant Space Monster Fighting Tech Development. Science marches on.

Chariots chariots.

They should have called up this guy.

Seriously, if you've not seen Big Man Japan (trailer) treat yourself.

If Idris Elba and Del Toro weren't attached, everyone would be calling this Battleship 2. The trailer inspires no confidence.

does it better.
/screams at his dad instead of BWAAAAARRRRRRR

That's what we need, entire episodes of "I mustn't run away. I mustn't run away. I mustn't run away..."

/Thank goodness Rebuild of Eva has a more tolerable Shinji

Great series, but man, that kid was the most intolerable whiney biatch (I know that was kind of the point, but damn did it get grating).

For what its worth (nothing i guess), I didn't like the lack of buildup and total mental breakdown after his eva goes bezerk and crushes the other eva's pilot plug thing in the re-do

He doesn't get the chance, but he still goes nuts and threatens his father and Nerv HQ. The fight against that Eva, and the fight against the next angel are far more brutal affairs in the re-do.

Also, Mari's english voice is absolutely awesome, and her fights were fun as hell.

Shinji isn't really whiny to me, hes a 14 year old who honestly wants to be anywhere but in the cockpit of a 30 story weapon of mass destruction fighting a war he knows pretty much nothing about. It's like having a jr high student storm the beaches of Normandy without prior knowledge of the Nazi war machine.

Best part of the remakes is the stronger focus on Rei and Shinji in the films. Their relationship takes center stage, as far as character interactions goes.

This. It's what made the characters in shiatty series like Gundam Wing look like psychopaths. No sane fourteen year old would relish killing.

I can't help but feel like you missed the point of that show. The characters WERE psychopaths, the whole show was about how horrific war is and how it mentally damages people. The pilots of that show were the ultimate representation of that, children raised in Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness' essentially.

But del Toro is attached, and that's what gives it so much more promise. What in lesser hands would turn out to be stupid is likely to be a great work of art under his guidance.

hubiestubert: Seriously. He puts out a movie, I'm in. He's one of only a few directors that I will see anything by him. Every one of his movies, has been either an enormous amount of fun, or so bittersweet and moving, and often combinations of both, that I've put them on my MUST SEE list. That means, channel surfing, I will stop on his stuff, no matter what. I'm in. All in.

Pan's Labyrinth is one of the most amazing movies that I have ever seen. I could gush for hours. I cried. And even Hellboy I love. But this looks like a movie trailer that would be laughed at if Michael Bay's name were on it.

crypticsatellite: I'm surprised they're using the voice of GLaDOS.

Unless, there's an Aperture connection...

I thought that part was the awesome icing on the kickass cake
