I am a big fan of director Guillermo Del Toro. His first feature CRONOS was an impressive debut. I never saw MIMIC or DEVIL’S BACKBONE, but I loved BLADE 2, the HELLBOY movies, and especially PAN’S LABYRINTH. After flirting with directing the HOBBIT films, Del Toro finally settled on makingPACIFIC RIM, which opens in July.
At first this new preview looks a bit like CLOVERFIELD (minus the handheld POV shots) with creatures destroying a city, but then in sort of turns into a big budget ROBOT JOX (a super cheesy z-grade film from the early 90’s…. google it), which definitely gets me excited. Big giant robots (with humans inside controlling them) battling huge monsters! This could be fun. Sign me up!
