Guillermo del Toro definitely isn’t making a Power Rangers movie. Although you’d be forgiven for thinking that after watching the new trailer for Pacific Rim.
Focusing on robo-fighting action, the clip also features a stirring speech from Idris Elba who seems to be doing an impression of Tom Hardy’s Bane, sans breathing apparatus. Meanwhile the trailer’s audio suggests that the mega mechs are powered by trumpets.
We’re only six months away from the film’s UK release and it’s shaping up to be one of the year’s most anticipated titles. Let’s hope del Toro can rein in the preposterousness of the conceit and balance the bold action with some interesting characters.
