Pacific Rim’s official main trailer has been finally released, and it’s awesome

A couple of months ago Michael Bay made some nasty remarks saying every robot movie after Transformers was a “rip-off.” Well, I don’t think any of his Transformers movies come close to what Pacific Rim is, just watch this trailer.

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 (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko 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.

That looks absolutely awesome, and I don’t think I could be disappointed by it. The ship/sword alone makes it worth it.  Just so you know, the word “kaiju” means more or less “giant monster,” which pretty much describes Godzilla movies.
