Pacific Rim: Trailernomics

Guillermo del Toro has been exciting fans about his giant mecha movie since early 2012 when the first extended session with actors and the cherubic director in Hall H at Comic-Con International shed new light on the then mysterious movie. Guillermo’s films are usually crafted with an excruciating attention to detail and feature protagonists that embody wonder, heroism and honor. Children’s stories, comedies and fairy tales used to be his forte but more recently the Spanish born writer/director has branched out to tackle stories with darker underpinnings and more complicated characters. His new film Pacific Rim will pit towering mechanized contraptions each having two pilots against otherworldly monsters who’ve passed into our world through a dimensional portal deep in the ocean.
