New Pacific Rim Trailer Wants to Shake Your Hand…Neurally

We don’t care how many times you make that stupid “cancel the apocalypse” speech in these Pacific Rim trailers, Idris Elba, we are still going to like this movie. Bad writing, attempts at characterization…these won’t stop us! You’ve got mechs fighting monsters and it looks gorgeous and that’s all we want.

Still, this new trailer for Rock ’Em Sock ’Em Everything Pacific Rim gets points for turning what is essentially noise in movie form into something creepy and understated. And for providing a new office in-joke with the needless repetition of “neural handshake.”

Also check out that newsreel of the robot parade.
