Watch The New Extended Trailer For ‘Pacific Rim’ With Idris Elba

Watch The New Extended Trailer For 'Pacific Rim' With Idris Elba

Here’s the new extended trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s giant monsters vs. giant robots movie Pacific Rim, with Idris Elba, opening July 12th.

This is the trailer that was shown first exclusively at WonderCon, which I’ve never heard of before but, no doubt, it’s one of those conventions
where adult loser geeks dress up as comic book heroes.

But Del Toro, being the generous guy that he is, decided that everyone should have the chance to see it.

Or as he put it:

was originally intended for only WonderCon, but after listening to so many of
you asking for more of the movie online, I think it’s time for me to show you
more footage. Enjoy, my friends!”

P.S. How much you wanna bet Idris is not going to make it
alive by the end of the film? He’s the leader/mentor of the team and, judging from the cast list, the only black guy in the film. Either one guarantees he’s a goner,
knowing movie clichés. But both? Bye-bye!

lol @ "bye-bye". I need an Idris victory speech at the end of this film. I love when he uses his real accent!


Let Idris live!!! LOL!!!


I can't wait to see this. Guillermo del Toro is an awesome director. Great specific vision… I think Idris Elba is awesome. So two pluses for me.
