Pacific Rim CES Trailer

Whoa! With the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) underway in Las Vegas this week, it's no surprise we're getting some teasers from the showfloor. JoBlo found what is labeled a "CES Qualcomm" trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, the giant monsters vs robots movie that just got its first full trailer back in December. I'm guessing this is playing around the Qualcomm booth in some promo, given tweets from those at the convention. This trailer is much more action-heavy and shows us more of how the robots work, and fight, and kick ass, starring Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba with the "apocalypse".

Watch the new CES Qualcomm trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, found via JoBlo on YouTube:

Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) is directing Pacific Rim from a script by Travis Beacham. The film follows a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi), who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger, a massive robot designed to fight legions of monstrous creatures known as Kaiju, which started rising from the sea years ago. They stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse. The film also stars Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day and Clifton Collins Jr. Warner Bros will release Pac Rim in theaters in 3D starting July 12th, 2013. Excited?

      That makes more sense than what I heard first time.. "We are Cancer in the Apocalypse!"
  • Idris got a cool commander Sheppard suit.
  • flbball23
    Looks pretty cool but does anyone else kinda think the robots look like giant Spartans from Halo?
  • Kwaz
    Wow I'm so giddy for this film, definitely on my top must watch list.
  • The_Phantom
    Is there only one monster?
    • Manuel
      There can only be one.
      • Spider_Man
        You, sir, are a true genius! 😛
  • HyperJ
    BWWWAAAAAOOOOOMMMMM A better trailer for sure, I always wanted a Robot Jox 2 film. 😉 BWWWAAAAAOOOOOMMMMM
    • Professor Brian O'blivion
      YES! So glad someone made a Robot Jox reference here!
  • Gonna say it but just looks awful. I was hoping the first trailer was just a bad trailer but this is no better. I just think Power Rangers all the way through and the way they control the robots also looks cheap and stupid. I am not trolling but does anyone else get a bad feeling about this?
    • hg
      wtf were you expecting we have known it is about giant robots controlled by humans within them fighter giant monsters this is a genre b film through and through and this film looks exactly like it's synopsis has said for months
      • nate
        This is not b movie. Both of you guys are crazy. This looks nothing like a b movie power ranger-esque. You guys need to watch a b movie.
      • Yeah. I know what you are saying but as for 'event' or 'summer' movies the bar has been raised so high by the likes of Nolan, JJ, Synder, Jackson etc that things like this fail to impress. I hope I am wrong and it is just a really bad trailer.
  • WBsGreenLantern
    This looks like garbage. Today, I am canceling my orders for this film.
    • Bob
      Mr brain! could you make a frame in whole your life time?
  • Ehsan Davodi
    MAYBE Transformers 10 or Avatar 10 reach the place that Pacific Rim would reach to that. Fantastic Wishable SiFi that was in my dreams when I was kid , when I had watched japanies animes and I got close my eyes and get sank in the only world that I want just live it that.
  • Bob
    This is a great trailer from a great movie from a great talented director, Guillermo del Toro.
  • East coast Canuck
    J'pense Robert Maillet garde pretty Badass.
  • thechillerdewd
    I'm not convinced/sold just yet. So far it looks like another CGI-fest, I'm tired of those...Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to this movie, especially because of Del Toro, Idris Elba and Charlie Hunman (who is rly getting more and more hollywood roles as of late, well he is great in Sons of Anarchy). But by now the marketing looks like Transformers 3 with seamonsters to me,,,
  • It looks like a cross between the Power Rangers movies and Transformers. I hope is good but I am not sold yet.
  • bombayrefugee
    So, basically, a mix of Transformers, Independence Day and Godzilla, with a few squirts of Iron Man, Battleship and Matrix Revolutions. Why am I supposed to get excited about another characterless, plot-weak, CGI-heavy crash-bang retread?
    • Because if you'd like you can watch a double feature of Les Miserables and Pacific Rim. Both genres have a place in Hollywood and I like to be able to choose if I feel like turning off my brain and watching explosions for a couple hours. And you're not allowed to say it's characterless and has a weak plot until you actually watch the film. The trailer shows crash-bangs because it's eye popping and gets your attention so don't judge a book by its cover.
      • bombayrefugee
        I like good sci-fi stories. I'm betting Pacific Rim isn't going to be a story but yet another CGI spectacle: shouting, explosions and big things clobbering other big things. And you know what? I am allowed to say that. In the last few years most of what Hollywood has produced in the sci-fi genre is mindless spectacle with feeble stories and characters. There have been exceptions but this does not look like one of them. I'd love to be wrong.
        • Good script, good director, solid cast, Legendary involved...I think this will be the exception to the trend of Hollywood just cashing in on mindless explosions. This is not a reboot or a sequel and is based on entirely new material which was conceived by the film maker and not some studio suits. I think we need to wait and see, but to me, seeing original concepts is a breath of fresh air. The attention to detail, such as getting GlaDOS to do the admin voice, tells me that they know what the fans want and are going to deliver. I think Del Toro has something to prove with this film after The Hobbit debacle and Mountains of Madness getting shut down so I sincerely think that this is going to be something very special. But I could be completely wrong as I thought The Last Airbender was going to be Shyamylan's saving grace too.
          • castingcouch
            I have to agree with the other guy that this movie looks like another mindless spectacle. If it's not, then great. It just looks that way.
        • You act as if all Sci-fi from before was all story / amazing characters lol. Please. The ratio is still the same no matter what genre you look at. Some are more brainless than others. It's just mathematics. Stop getting upset over movies YOU don't enjoy, and instead just enjoy the ones you do.
    • You forgot Cloverfield.
  • avi
    i am in! Sometimes i like big giant robots doing nothing more than destroy and destroy! Del toro is not Peter Berg and every movie from him is very satisfying so this will be awesome! I like every genre and i can guarantee that del Toro will do a great job with it! Number 2 on my to see list after onley god forgives...
  • nathan
    I have zero interest in this - looks awful.
  • Dearsleazy
    Did I just hear GLaDOS at 00:37? :O
    • Kaim
      Only appearing in the traielr wont be in the movie from what I read
  • This looks like something I would have enjoyed when I was 5 years old.
  • jah p
    Okay, so why do they keep showing the same fight, and robot against monster in every trailer?In the rain and at night?This is what Tim Burton was supposed to be doing for Monsterpocalypse at Dreamworks, but I guess that movie won't get greenlit unless Pacific Rim, Godzilla, and the upcoming Gaiking movie does extremely well.
  • Tester
    Still looks like crap, still not in my 2013 Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies
  • I liked the first trailer more.
  • Elkensteyin
    With the exception of Ender's Game, the movie I most want to see in 2013.
  • Last Son
    This year's Battleship.
  • Wow! Nice movie? Is this going to come out soon? Are there any more info about this?
