This massive Wondercon trailer is one gigantic and beautiful scene after another. This film is really trying to beat the idea of giant scale into our minds and personally it’s working for me. I will be watching this film in IMAX, it will be the best film ever made and as God as my witness Del Toro will get an Oscar! On my previous review of Trailer #1 I confessed my ridiculous excitement for this film, and clearly this trailer doesn’t help, I might actually go crazy waiting for this! The thing you notice about the trailer is a lot more behind the scenes detail such as the command center and well just people in general, and we see Charlie day for the first time talking about understanding the enemy (he is a scientist). Then we go over a few scenes showing how the Jaegers work with mind melding and such. We also get an insight into how the war with the Kaiju has been going, but after that its 2,500 tonnes of awesome with lots and lots of battle scenes and Giant Robot action! 12th July save the date!
I think it looks good, nothing amazing so far but it definitely looks like a fun western with a great cast. Just a warning, I haven’t actually seen any Lone Ranger… well anything so if I sound like I don’t know what I am talking about it’s because I don’t. The two unlikely heroes line be done before but so has this material and as someone with no experience with the story I would quite like to see a retelling, hopefully it won’t be catastrophic disaster. Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp seem like a good team up from what I can see from the trailers and with the Pirates of the Caribbean director and producer helming we should get some good action adventure. Oh and Hans Zimmer on score very nice. I do however have a fear that with a budget of over $250M!!! It won’t be the success Disney are predicting, still going to be fun for us. Now let’s check out the trailer.
