Get your first fleeting glimpses of the monsters from Pacific Rim in this new viral video

3 years agoby:

It did not take long after the viral launch this morning that we got our first look at footage from PACIFIC RIM. While this is not a trailer by any means, this is definitely a teaser in the most literal sense of the word.

This viral video is a series of news broadcasts surrounding the first attacks by the PACIFIC RIM monsters, or Kaiju as they are called. The attack is centered in San Francisco and shows quick glimpses of destruction, the legs of the creature, and the military attach to bring the beast down. While the images are intentionally hazy, you get a very good idea of the scope Guillermo Del Toro has been telling us the movie would have.

This footage is awesome. As a fan of CLOVERFIELD, I love that this viral campaign is kicking off with nothing more than flashes of what will be in store for us. I am anticipating full on monster versus robot insanity in the final product, but until I am watching the movie in the theater, I want nothing more than this. I hope the trailer doesn't give away the creatures, either. Del Toro has the potential to give us something amazing here, and I cannot wait.

PACIFIC RIM, starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., and Rinko Kikuchi starts calming the seas on July 12, 2013.

Stupid!

THIS SUCKS! In this day and age, there are no video-taking pieces of equipment in the world which take such shitty cut-out videos. There are likely 10,000 iPhones within range of the Golden Gate bridge right now...there would never be a newscast with such piss-poor video. This would've been "realistic" in the 1970's, but it's just a nausea-inducing ridiculous mess to watch today. If this is how Pacific Rim is going to be, then I have yet another reason to hate GDT for not making ATMOM!!!

Um, this isn't a trailer or even a teaser. This is viral marketing. A marketing team took actual footage from the movie and dressed it up to look like found footage. The movie itself is a traditional movie, not a found footage movie.

Also, FYI, most of the distortion in that video looks like digital tape distortion. FYI, most news stations still shoot on tape.

THAT WAS FUCKIN INSANE

I love this viral getting me pumped like clover did. I am fuckin stoked to see robots beat the shit out of monsters and full on destruction hope we see many city's fall and lots of fighting. Hope this will be in IMAX and at least 2hrs and 40 mins long. not short like 2hrs.

Honestly. This is nothing we've never seen before. And between X-Men and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, destroying the Golden Gate Bridge is getting a little fucked out. Until I see something better, I'm reserving my excitement.
