Pacific Rim feels so far away, and that’s because it kind of is. We’re a little under two months until the movie’s release, and there are plenty of blockbusters before Guillermo Del Toro‘s monsters-vs-robots picture hits the big screen. But Warner Bros. is already making sure that TV audiences are aware of the flick, and the first TV spot has been released. There’s some new footage in here, but every thing I’ve seen just leaves me with the same thought: I need to see this on a movie screen.
Hit the jump to check out the TV spot. The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman. Pacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th.
Another trailer has been released for Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim. The story is kicked off by the emergence of monsters (known as Kaiju) who start a war that devastates humanity. To fight back, humans build giant robots (known as Jaegers) that are controlled by two pilots. The latest trailer explains how the Jaegers work, but the main focus is the scale of the kaiji-vs-jaeger battles. Nothing is really spoiled here, and watching this in a YouTube player is almost a disservice to the size of the action. I still can’t wait to see this flick up on the big screen.

Pacific Rim owes a great debt to Japan. Director Guillermo del Toro‘s upcoming film draws from the country’s monster movies and manga, and in a new Japanese trailer, del Toro acknowledges these influences. Pacific Rim doesn’t look like a homage as much as it appears to simply be the loving offspring of some of Japan’s most beloved entertainment. There’s also some new footage lurking about in the trailer, so that’s worth checking out as well.

Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim had a presentation at this year’s WonderCon, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. They showed off plenty of new footage in a new trailer for the upcoming giant-monsters-vs-giant-robots flick, and now that trailer has landed online. As Charlie Day‘s character says, it’s “2,500 tons of awesome.” The new trailer provides a lot more info on the story, but it’s the visuals that will really blow people away. I felt bad watching it on my computer monitor because this is a movie that clearly demands to be seen in theaters.

Marvel has released the first trailer for director Alan Taylor’s (Game of Thrones) sequel Thor: The Dark World and it looks great.

Warner Bros. has put together a new trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim for Qualcomm’s presentation at CES 2013. The story is kicked off by the rise of monsters (known as Kaiju) from the sea who start a war that devastates humanity. To fight back, the humans build giant robots (known as Jaegers) that are controlled by two pilots. We here at Collider support a movie that gives Del Toro $200 million dollars to design sea monsters and giant robots that fight each other. The trailer delivers on that promise with new footage.

A new image from director Guillermo del Toro’s monsters vs. robots film Pacific Rim has landed online, and it features neither monsters nor robots. Instead, we get a look at the characters played by Idris Elba and Rinko Kikuchi in what looks to be some sort of control room setting. The story finds humans towards the end of a losing battle against giant monsters called Kaiju. In order to combat the creatures, humans have developed their own giant human-controlled robots called Jaegers. Given what we saw in the film’s excellent first trailer, it’s safe to say del Toro isn’t pulling any punches.

With director Guillermo del Toro’s trailer for Pacific Rim making a big splash recently, we thought we’d put together a collection of screengrabs for you to enjoy.

We’ve got great looks at the Jaegers Gipsy Danger, Crimson Typhoon, Cherno Alpha and what may be either the Striker Eureka or Coyote Tango. There’s also plenty of detailed shots of the mech pilots in their suits for all you Comic-Con attendees/cosplay fans.

Luther is back! Well, nearly. The BBC has posted a new video to answer fan questions about the its dark crime series’ return (which we have been salivating for for quite some time now, since the second season wrapped in June of 2011).

The buzz on the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall, has been ecstatic, so of course it’s time to rush past the present and look to the future. And the future could hold a black James Bond. If that seems like a highly unlikely possibility, then it should come as a surprise that Bond producer Barbara Broccoli met with Idris Elba (Prometheus) for the role according to Skyfall actress Naomie Harris. “I didn’t realize that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris,” said Harris, “and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond.”

Though Phase One of Marvel Studios’ film slate came to an end just a few months ago with The Avengers, production on Phase Two is already well underway. The studio is currently in the midst of filming two upcoming sequels at the same time: Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World. The Iron Man production is winding down to a close ahead of that film’s May 2013 release date, but filming on Thor: The Dark World is still going strong in London and today the first official synopsis for the Asgardian pic has been revealed.
The logline essentially tells us what we already know: Thor (Chris Hemsworth) must fight against Maleketih (Christopher Eccleston) and his race of Dark Elves, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is back, the fate of the universe is in the balance, etc. However, the synopsis does tease the film’s epic scope and the fact that Thor is forced to “sacrifice everything” in order to save us all (Thor dies?!). Hit the jump to check out the full synopsis, which includes the full cast list. Directed by Alan Taylor, Thor: The Dark World opens on November 8th, 2013.
It looks like director Guillermo del Toro’s much-anticipated Monsters vs Mecha movie, Pacific Rim, is about to get a graphic novel companion. Penned by Travis Beacham (Clash of the Titans), the same screenwriter behind the feature, the graphic novel will be put out through Legendary Comics and will be available before the film’s July 12th, 2013 release date, as its story is a prequel of sorts. Del Toro talks about the decision to release the comic as a prequel rather than adapt the movie after it debuts. See what the director had to say, along with a brand new poster for Pacific Rim after the jump.
