Around this time of the year many of us expect to see the blockbusters. You know: the record-setting, high-flying, sometimes-overhyped action films that draw consumers into theaters by the droves. You may have heard of Pacific Rim, but don’t count this film as a typical summer flick lacking solidity – especially when it was co-written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, and stars the award-winning Idris Elba. The science fiction film finds Earth taking a last stand against monsters residing deep in the ocean, using abandoned technology and two untrained pilots to lead the path to survival. What’s more, it looks just as amazing as it sounds. Enjoy a trailer for Pacific Rim above, releasing July 12.
