Pacific Rim viral campaign kicks off

November 29th, 2012 by Marc Comments

We’re BIG Guillermo Del Toro fans here at FTN, so anything from his newest movie, Pacific Rim, will get us, em, excited…

The movie, which revolves around the premise of a giant aliens invading earth and our last line of defense being massive robotic fighting machines, is ticking all the right boxes. With Idris Elba and Ron Perlman starring, what’s not to love?!

Follow the chaos here, here, here and here

So here we have the first ‘footage’ from the movie in the form of two viral teasers. The first is a bit of a let down, but the second certainly gives us a feel for the scope of this. While it feels a bit like Cloverfield and Godzilla, we have every faith in Del Toro…

It certainly seems to reflect the buzz from SDCC earlier this year that, from the footage shown, the movie really sets out to capture the horror and trauma and, most importantly, the reality of an event like this. Now, tell us you’re not excited too?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
