Synopsis: When an alien attack threatens the Earth’s existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace.
Release Date: July 12, 2013
Thoughts: Though at first glance this may seem like a simple mash up of several other franchises, Guillermo del Toro’s long in the works Pacific Rim has debuted an exciting trailer that showcases the trademarks of the acclaimed director. With excellent visuals and a clear innovation of style, expectations are high for this summer 2013 release…and from what I see the buzz is warranted. Though he was on track to direct The Hobbit films before they hit production delays, del Toro shifted his focus to this and with the reviews that The Hobbit is getting…he may be glad he went for alien robots over hairy hobbits.
