Godzilla, Giant Robots, Soiled Pants


It’s official – Gareth Edwards, the guy who did the astonishing Monsters (2010), has announced a remake of Godzilla.

You know how occasionally/intermittently/often you crap your pants because you’re sad or in big trouble with the law, surrounded by creatures of unknown origin, about to be probed by aliens, just for the hell of it, or extremely happy? Knowing there’s a new Godzilla movie coming out makes this one of those extremely happy moments.

This, of course, is prefaced by the impending Pacific Rim, another movie about giant monsters from filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. (Pronounced “ghee-air-mow-del-tore-oh). Inspired by the Godzilla ’n friends legacy, here’s that PR’s all about…

Pacific RimWhen legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end.

To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.

Pacific Rim

But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes – a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee – who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Giant robots named after booze and battling giant monsters? Is it possible to crap one’s pants twice within moments of each event horizon? I’ll update this blog shortly.
