Cargo ships aren't structurally sound enough to be wielded as clubs, but I like the idea.

Also, I hope they harness Ron Perlman's brusque persona as an AT Field generator.
Pillager - 2013-04-29
If humanity can flaunt the Square-Cube law with Jaegers, then the same engineering had to be done with cargo ships to better deal with Kaiju assaults.

My 2 cents.

SolRo - 2013-04-29
The cube law kinda assumes the object is solid and/or the same design is just made bigger.

It applies perfectly to biology, but I think when it comes to mechanical systems there are ways around it even today (aside maybe from armor plating, but even that stuff has lightweight alternatives)

The exotic materials (carbon-titanium for example) are expensive as all hell, but if you're fighting off extinction, I'd assume the R&D checks would be blank to fill in with whatever number needed.

"We started winning... then it all changed."

perhaps our strategy of beating the monsters to death with giant robots using cargo ships as clubs was ill-considered.

The only movie I'm looking forward to enough that I'm going to go out of my way to avoid seeing it in fucking 3D.
Jet Bin Fever - 2013-04-29
No kidding. Fuck that 3d bullshit. It hurts my eyes and takes away from every movie I've seen with it.

Hooker - 2013-04-29
It totally ruined The Avengers for me. When I finally watched it at home in glorious 40" 2D stereo sound, it was a pretty decent movie. In the theatre, it was just awful.

SolRo - 2013-04-29
I'll watch it in IMAX 3D because the glasses work for me and the imax sound vibrates my skeleton.

Kabbage - 2013-04-29
Jurassic Park in 3D was inexplicably fantastic. Best I have ever seen, by far. 3D actually made that movie better.

With Charlie from It's always Sunny.

Is it bad that I want to see this movie just because I think that dude is hilarious and awesome? I'm glad he's crossed over into movies.

La Loco - 2013-04-29
dvd extras better have behind the scenes footage of him in a green motion capture suit.

chumbucket - 2013-04-29
Yay for you Charlie Day.

You see this, Drew Goddard & J J Abrams? This is how you do a dai kaiju movie.

Nobody gives two squirts of piss about generic twenty-something douchebags and their relationship issues. We want big-ass monsters wrecking shit and the military rolling out awesome hardware to stop them.
Sanest Man Alive - 2013-04-29
We also want some warning theme about the dangers of nuclear proliferation that gets increasingly muddled and distorted into a weird victim complex over decades of sequels. Oh, and time traveling psychics, fish-head disco freakouts, tiny enka singers, and FRIEND TO ALL CHILDREN.

But mostly that "monsters wrecking shit" thing. It gels pretty nicely with our penchant for apocalyptic disasturbation flicks.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-04-29
Right, 'cause Japanese movies never stick idiotic relationship crap in their films, especially ones with giant robots fighting monsters.

I'd point out that the Matthew Broderick version of Godzilla met all of the criteria Binro listed and sucked balls, hard.

Binro the Heretic - 2013-04-29
But the Broderick version also had douchey twenty-somethings and their relationship troubles.

"Cloverfield" is still thin gruel

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-04-29
If you consider Japanese Godzilla films the pinnacle of this genre, let me just quote to you from the plot summary for the first film:

"Meanwhile, Emiko, Yamane's daughter, decides to break off her arranged engagement to Yamane's colleague, Daisuke Serizawa, because of her love for Hideto Ogata, a salvage ship captain."

You probably just don't remember this junk because you saw the old movies when you were ten.

Hooker - 2013-04-29
The pinnacle of the genre is the 90s Gamera trilogy.

fedex - 2013-04-29
Gamera vs. Guiron to be exact, although that's actually 1969
(hey the year I was born, well of COURSE)

Hooker - 2013-04-30
No, seriously. The three Gamera films from the 90s are the best kaiju films ever made (except maybe The Host).

kingarthur - 2013-04-30
The 90s Gamera films are amazing. The American 90s Godzilla film completely ripped off the plot to the first 90s Gamera movie and somehow still managed to suck.

Welcome to the status quo, Guillermo del Toro.
misterbuns - 2013-07-12
I was so very wrong about this comment.

EvilHomer - 2013-04-29
I'm not watching this. I'm already sold on the movie, so further previews are just going to get me pumped up for nothing.

Take your stars and get out!
DriverStabby - 2013-04-29
This is like ants learning to make mechs to fight us. I think this is a very dangerous concept.
fedex - 2013-04-29
I think you should launch a one man campaign of violence to erase this movie from our society entirely.

DriverStabby - 2013-04-30
I need to make a mech for that.

misterbuns - 2013-04-30
Curious to see how / if nationalism plays a role in the tone.

Hopefully the shot of the Old Glory banner around the mech is telling, hopefully del toro took a out of verhoeven's Heinlein playbook, because this genre depends on camp.

Hopefully this trailer played it straight because of Warner Brother's notes.

Hopefully you guys weren't this excited about transformers.
