Kaiju + Giant Robots + Guillermo del Toro = Awesome! Pacific Rim trailer!

The trailer for Pacific Rim is out and damn does that look like something I am really going to have fun with.

Official Synopsis:
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Wow

Leave it to guys like Del Toro to make giant robots fighting giant monsters more acceptable in Hollywood.

Also... was I the only one saying giant robot attack cries during the trailer? ...nobody else shouted "Booster Knuckle" or anything?

Oh, I immediately thought

Oh, I immediately thought "Rocket Punch". That one robot's head also reminds me of Tetsujin28's head.

Please, Rob.

Please, Rob. This isn't one of those childish "Japanimations," this is a serious Hollywood production. Yelling something like, "boost knuckle," wouldn't be appro--hahahaha!

Sorry, sorry. You bet your ass I was thinking it.

I couldn't actually shout anything on account of my grin, however.
