Have you ever seen a giant robot use a massive oil tanker as a baseball bat to pummel and equally giant monster? Well, that’s just one of the awesome things you can see in this new trailer:
I’m in geek-shock right now. There are several things I like about this trailer, and it’s not just seeing the badass looking monsters fighting freaking huge robots. First, I like how it runs down a little more of the history and mechanics behind the Jaegers, and we get to see a little of how this world is working. Apparently humans were winning the war, but something has changed. It’s a nice tease of the story without giving too much away. Plus we see shots of a jaeger in space, suggesting the film is even more epic in scale than what we’ve seen.
The special effects look pretty solid. I know some people had issues with them in the first trailer (though I didn’t see an issue), but it’s obvious there’s another layer of polish that’s been put on the creatures. In all, this trailer does everything it needs to do; get you pumped to see this film. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it, and have been pretty much spamming the replay button on the video most of the morning. What do you guys think of it?
