FINAL TRAILER FOR PACIFIC RIM
The ‘Monsters vs Robots’ concept of Pacific Rim appears to be one of those dumb ideas that Hollywood blockbusters turn into money. There’s nothing wrong with dumb ideas and when executed in the right way they can be highly entertaining.

Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim is released 12 July 2013 in the UK and the US
