"In order to fight monsters, we created monsters of our own."
Warner Bros. has just released a new trailer for this summer's Pacific Rim and while it doesn't reveal much more about the plot than the previously released trailer and clip, it does feature plenty of action. Aliens are emerging from the seas, Earth is getting destroyed, and battleships are being used like they're t-ball bats. While we're guessing director/ co-writer Guillermo del Toro is saving some pretty major surprises for opening day, it's still a safe bet that anyone who is a fan of giant robots engaged in battle is going to have a good time at Pacific Rim.

"Two thousand five hundred tons of awesome."
Last month, Guillermo del Toro took some footage from the upcoming Pacific Rim to WonderCon, and he has now released it as as a trailer online. Fans of the director may be surprised by this new flick because while del Toro is best known for movies like Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy, it appears that this new monsters vs. machines pic is far more sci-fi than it is dark fantasy. Though the first Pacific Rim trailer was criticized by some for looking like a Transformers rip-off, it's hard to imagine anyone describing the movie as such after seeing this footage. watch the trailer >> Posted 04.30.13 by reelz
Meet the giant robots that will protect us from giant, invading monsters.
The first footage from Guillermo del Toro's upcoming sci-fi monster movie, Pacific Rim, was revealed at a packed San Diego Comic-Con panel last summer, eliciting responses from online journalists like "freaking amazing" and "pretty badass". Those that missed the panel had to wait until the movie's first trailer was released last month to catch a peek at what everyone was talking about, but, thankfully, there's already another trailer online which debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) going on in Las Vegas.
Unlike the previous trailer, which started by showing some of the creatures, the latest trailer focuses almost solely on the giant robots mankind has created to dispose of the monsters. giant trailers every show

A quick peek into what lies ahead this year.
Now that 2012 is behind us (and the Mayans were wrong), 2013 is rolling ahead as scheduled (and like most of us assumed it would). That means a whole new year of movies are scheduled to open, starting this Friday. However, to help us prepare for the coming onslaught of sequels, reboots and potential franchise starters, YouTube user M Walls has put together a 2013 movie trailer mashup (via ScreenRant) that includes footage from Man of Steel, Iron Man 3, Lone Ranger, World War Z, After Earth, Oblivion, Gangster Squad, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, and Star Trek Into Darkness and reveals a taste of what audiences have to look forward to in the coming year. watch the video >> Posted 01.03.13 by Ryan
"You will give the people an ideal to strive towards...you will help them accomplish wonders."
This has been an incredible year for sci-fi and fantasy fans alike. Blade Runner and Alien director Ridley Scott returned to sci-fi after a 30-year hiatus with the visually stunning and highly divisive Prometheus, while the superhero sub-genre of sci-fi continued its ascension, with The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises claiming the first and second spots on the list of the highest-grossing movies of the year. Fantasy fans had fewer options in 2012, but they flocked to theaters to see two Kristen Stewart-led movies — Snow White and the Huntsman and Breaking Dawn: Part 2 — and to return to J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth with Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
The coming year in movies promises to be just as epic for genre fans, filled with dozens of big budget movies populated by superheroes, zombies, wizards, knights, robots and monsters. We don't want you to miss out on any of the wondrous adventures that await you next year, so we've compiled a list of the big ones, the must-see movies that fans simply can't stop talking, blogging, and tweeting about, the Top 10 Most Highly Anticipated Sci-Fi & Fantasy Movies of 2013.

"Today we are cancelling the apocalypse!"
From the beginning, we've been anxiously awaiting Guillermo del Toro's upcoming sci-fi monster movie, Pacific Rim, a project the director has called "the biggest giant monster movie ever made." Del Toro has admitted that Pacific Rim would be inspired by "the kaiju genre in Japan," the subgenre that introduced Godzilla and other "giant monster" movies to audiences. However, at AICN's annual Butt-Numb-a-Thon, del Toro said that Pacific Rim was "a movie made by a fan but not a fan film," so that anyone that watches it, regardless of their knowledge of kaiju movies would still "get a boner."
The first footage from Pacific Rim was unveiled at Comic-Con this summer, but unless you were there in Hall H, the first trailer for the movie is most people's first opportunity to see del Toro's monsters do battle with massive robots called Jaegers, which are controlled by two human pilots. monster trailers every show

Up until now, we've seen very little of Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim but that changes with today's debut of the movie's first poster.
The poster illustrates the size the of the massive robots, called Jaegers, controlled by two human pilots, which are used to do battle with monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju. The two pilots standing on the shoulder of the Jaeger in the poster look like ants in comparison to the skyscraper-sized robot.
Warner Bros. released the poster to coincide with the movie's appearance at this week's Comic-Con. Del Toro will host a panel for Pacific Rim on Saturday in Hall H at Comic-Con. The director and stars Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kicuchi, and Ron Perlman will also be hand to sign autographs at a session following the panel.
Unlike most of the projects making an appearance at Comic-Con, little is known about Pacific Rim, which is still shooting. Here's the movie's synopsis:
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Kikuchi) — who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse. check out the Comic-Con poster >> Posted 07.07.12 by Chris
Even though director Guillermo del Toro is not quite ready to share with us the designs of the gigantic "Kaiju" monsters that will terrorize the Earth in his new sci-fi epic, Pacific Rim, or the enormous piloted robots called "Jaegers" that humanity will create to battle the monsters, del Toro has been willing to share just enough details to get us salivating. Del Toro recently disclosed that "several blocks of Hong Kong" were built and "literally demolished" to show the devastation of the conflicts between monsters and mechs. And, in the most recent issue of Total Film Magazine, del Toro explained why some of the locales where the action takes place will make Pacific Rim a visually stunning action movie and a unique entry in the kaiju eiga ("monster movie") genre. what did del toro say? >> Posted 06.22.12 by BrentJS
If you've seen Pan's Labyrinth or either of the Hellboy movies, then you know that director Guillermo del Toro prefers to use costumes, makeup, and practical effects whenever possible, rather than computer-generated imagery. Del Toro's predilection for doing things "in-camera" continues in the production of his latest movie, Pacific Rim. In the new issue of Total Film Magazine, del Toro revealed that "several blocks of Hong Kong" were created only to be destroyed during the conflict between the titanic "Kaiju" monsters that threaten to wipe out civilization as we know it and the enormous piloted robots called "Jaegers" that serve as the last line of defense for the human race. what did del toro say? >> Posted 06.14.12 by BrentJS
