Pacific Rim
#1
For those who haven't heard, Pacific Rim is an upcoming movie about mecha versus kaiju. It's supposed to be a tribute to Japanese monster movies a la Godzilla. It's set for release on July 12, 2013 and is directed by Guillermo del Toro, famous for the Hellboy films, writing The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and so forth.

Basically, the kaiju (Japanese for "strange beast") invade Earth through a portal rim deep beneath the Pacific Ocean. They immediately start assaulting countries worldwide and since the military stands no chance, the "Jaeger Project" surfaces. Jaegers (German for "hunter") are giant robots which are humanity's last hope for survival. Jaegers are dispatched all over the world to destroy the kaiju abomination and secure mankind's future.

I am a HUGE monster move fanatic, having been a major Godzilla fan since I was a toddler; not even lying. I also don't lie when I type that I was one of the first fans excited for Pacific Rim before it became "mainstream". In other words, before the marketing, trailers and teasers arrived.

It's cool, because Guillermo del Toro wanted it to be a movie about "the world saving the world", not "a group of people saving the world". On a trivial note, the Jaegers and Kaiju would make BEAST B-Daman undoubtedly.

Saw it at the 7pm Thursday premiere in IMAX 3D and got a super sweet poster as a freebie because of it. I highly anticipated this movie and all I can say is that it didn't disappoint. Made a Lego Gipsy Danger over on my main channel on YouTube, actually.

When I first saw the trailer, the concept of someone being on a giant Robot Vs Monsters reminded me of an anime : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEjZe6N3nH0 ( This anime is a little perverted )

Before I clicked that link, I thought you were making a reference to Neon Genesis Evangelion since many people seem to draw comparisons between it and Pacific Rim, lol.
