What the hell did I just watch..

Cody Holden:
This is going to be the most awesome terrible movie I'll have seen in a while.

This guy said it best, I was thinking this the whole time watching the trailer as well.

HOLY MOLY that movie looks awesome! Wait a second... a portal under the sea... Is this what happened to the Borealis?

Also: This was a triumph...

(I am disappointed that this was not posted earlier)

I know everyone has already said this but yes, I also saw traces of Evangelion in this trailer. Still, pretty cool they got Ellen McClain (aka GLaDOS) involved. I like Guillermo del Toro as a director (Pan's Labyrinth is one of my favorite foreign language movies). I think I might check this out if I'm bored and I'm in desperate need of a movie date night with the BF; other than that, I'll just wait for the DVD and rent it.

Movie not out, fans already discussing sequel. God I love fans. When they're not rabid, that is.

It is all a clever ruse by Valve.

Gabe is really planning on releasing a tie in game thats good to be the sequel.

I'm going to need a minute to recover from my nerdgasm.

I watched it and I was mostly eh about the whole thing.

The plot basically sounds like its just an excuse to have giant robots fight monsters. Unfortunately for me, those giant robots looked like shit. I'm not a huge fan of the "realistic" lookin robots because they're tryin to be realistic with a premise that is completely ridiculous. Why can't they just let the robots be pretty instead of just giant gray blobs?

Two things wrong with that video: unskippable advert that wastes far too much time, and not enough Ellen McClain.

I also note from this trailer's very quick credits that the film will also star 'Sons of Anarchy' luminaries Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman

Any one else think the monster looks like a Dodongo from Legend of Zelda?

What are you... oh, I see. Yes, technically that is the only mecha in the series. However, for the purposes of generalisation, the EVA units count as well, and goddamn do they look sexy. The mecha in this trailer just look like clumsy supersized versions of the Crysis suit.

But that's entirely because the Eva armour is just a suit.

Could it be that the robot in Pacific Rim are similar to the Evangelion Units in that they are also suits of armor built on top of an alien body to control and additionally empower/arm them?

Not unless the blueprints are intentionally misleading; besides, all the joints are very mechanicsl - if there were organic parts in PR's bots, they'd only be the torso, I think. Also the monsters in this film would seem to be quite inhumanly shaped, so it'd have to be a plot twist to rival that of Shamalamadingdong's.

Maybe for a sequel.

Yup me too lol, but I'll still watch it. Who knows it might turn out so terrible its decent for a laugh though, like sharktopus.

You know, just because it has a goofy premise doesn't mean it's going to suck. There's nothing wrong with having a huge explosion-fest. It just has to be done right.

It's Guillermo Del Toro, of course Ron Perlman's in it.

Well that's Hunnam doing the narration at the opening of the trailer. Didn't know Perlman was in it, though (which is awesome!)

From motorcycles to Mech suits, I guess.

Seems like a natural progession...

Fighting Giant Monsters with Mechs. For Science. You monster.

Also, so we missed out on him making an At the Mountains of Madness movie, and we get this instead? I'm completely okay with this.

So...much...awesome. Having GLaDOS just makes it even cooler. It almost kinda sorta makes up for "At the Mountains of Madness" was effectively scrapped. Gimme some Cthulhu already!

Treblaine:
I wonder how Valve feels about this?

It would be so awesome if the AI was actually called GlaDOS

Or even...

... what if it directly reference Half Life/Portal lore with an Aperture Science company? I mean we already have established "inter-dimensional aliens travelling via portals to invade earth" that's already SO HALF LIFE! What if Pacific Rim was riffing on Half Life canon?!?!

*squee*

Thats what Im hoping, and at this point, Im ready to start making wild conclusions based on next to evidence to support the fact that this is now Half Life canon...see the portal under the sea? It was yellow, same as the resonance cascade!!! PROOF!!

Cave Johnson here,
Now you might be asking yourself, "Cave, just how big are these robots?", "What was in that phonebook of a military contract I signed?", "Just, why?". Let me answer those questions with a question: who wants to smash some monsters with a battle mech the size of Lady Liberty?
These unstoppable destroying behemoths are the pinnacle of Aperture Science technological development. While those pantywaists at Black Mesa are jerking around with gravity guns - which will never work by the way - we've taken tried and true technology: killer robots, and scaled them up to the size they were always intended to be.

Reaper sounds, GlaDOS, Mecha with aren't from Japan... what is going on here?
Anyways, it's gonna be a terrible movie and I'm gonna love it.

Wow, they didn't get Ellen McClain, they literally just took the GLaDOS voice XD. I'd have thought they'd use atleast a slightly different voice filter, but i guess they were going very directly for the 'awesome, a movie with glados in it! definitely gonna see this' crowd. Especially apparent with the countdown XD

It actually seems out of place when I listen to it, a little too 'cutsey' and light for the hardware it's meant to be attached to.
