VIDEO: Giant Monster Attacks San Francisco in "Pacific Rim" Viral Short!

Summer 2013 can't come soon enough!

A 7.1 earthquake in the heart of the San Francisco Bay…something moving under the Golden Gate Bridge… a city becomes a kaiju war zone in a striking new viral spot for the upcoming Guillermo del Toro movie Pacific Rim! Watch below!

 

 

del Toro’s film, set to open next summer, promises to be a giant monsters vs giant robot fest that already has fans of the “kaiju” (giant monster) genre on their feet. Some viewers of the clip are pointing out certain visual similarities to Neon Genesis Evangelion, and that can’t be a bad thing. Although I hope the whole film isn’t presented in this “shaky cam” video footage style, because lord knows that we had enough of that in Cloverfield. Still, any major motion picture that’s not afraid to casually throw down the word “kaiju” in their marketing campaign seems to be on the right track. Consider yesterday’s viral video for the Kaiju Emergecny Alert System below…
