Pacific Rim Trailer Released

Rinko Kikuchi and Ellen McLain feature as a giant robot pilot and an artificial intelligence respectively in Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, which will open in American theaters on July 12, 2013.

Gamers will recognize McLain as the love-to-hate-her homicidal AI GlaDOS in Portal and Portal 2.

 The whole thing is quite distracting, since the movie also features giant monsters, giant robots, robot suits, and Idris Elba giving the best we-will-not-lay-down-and-die speech since Independence Day.

Del Toro described the film as a love letter to Japanese monster movies, and the trailer shows it.

I'm honestly a bit too overwhelmed to analyze anything about it, since it just looks awesome. Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman as neurally linked mech pilots.
