Giant Kaiju Attacks San Francisco! Get Your First Look At PACIFIC RIM Beast!

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
The viral campaign for Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim continues with the release of newsreel footage of a giant kaiju monster attack on San Francisco and, yes, if you pay close attention you can catch a glimpse of the big beastie in action.

Starring Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day and Rinko Kikuchi, Del Toro's giant robots versus giant monsters flick opens July 2013.

    Looks good. Hope that thing on the ship ain't big daddy, though. Way too small

  • Martin Wagner

    Gotta agree, this is looking like Cloverfield 2. They should really rethink this fake "viral" stuff.

  • Jim

    Right now this looks like some Asylum rip-off movie. I love giant robots and giant creatures, but this does not look like something from Del Toro, it looks cheap.

  • Michael

    It's inconceivable that this is a teaser for a Del Toro film. I haven't seen anything this bad in a long time. No camera would produce such a jittery, distorted image. What's the rationale for manipulating the footage to simulate something that no one has seen in decades. More bizarre, why does this affect the Breaking News graphics that have been superimposed over the footage after the fact? There's no reason for them to shake and change at all. This is just so amateur.

  • Matt

    I'm excited about this movie, but this viral "teaser" is pretty weak. If people don't already know about this movie, this will steer them away as another hand-held Cloverfield. I hope that's not the case.

  • It's still eight months away from release, they've got TONS of time to release more conventional footage ...
