There have been a lot of trailers and ads for Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro’s take on the Kaiju genre. As a whole though, they seem to have focused on the film as a special effects spectacle, and to be fair, it does look amazing and just filled with cool stuff. The campaign has been missing one thing, however, and that’s just about any idea of the human characters piloting the giant-ass mech suits.
Now, a week before the film’s release, there’s finally a Pacific Rim trailer that features the people whose names are on the posters.
There’s a ton of new footage of
gundams jaegers smashing up monsters, but there’s even more about the humans. It’s nice to know that they’re, you know, in the movie.
