4 Questions Regarding the New Pacific Rim Trailer

Warner Bros. Pictures has shared the new trailer for Pacific Rim which is directed by Guillermo Del Torro. I wanted to ask a couple of questions pertaining to this new questions and maybe get you guys to solve the riddle.

1. Who are the new Jaegers?

We’re all familiar with the first batch like Cherno Alpha, Striker Eureka and the jaeger that Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi pilots which was Gypsy Danger. So who are these new guys? It looks like the film still has more secrets that it doesn’t plan on revealing until July 11.

2. What is Ron Perlman’s role?

If you ask me, the man who played Hellboy could be the boss of the whole operation. Actually this is the first time we’ve seen him in any of the trailers. Originally I was assuming that Idris Elba was just a pilot but it looks like he got bumped to a commander or something.

3. Flying Kaijus

So we’re seeing flying kaijus now which makes me wonder what are the other ‘specialized’ kaijus we might be seeing here in this epic movie. Also, it’s interesting to note that this might just be a throwback to an old Godzilla foe called Rodan.

4. Who are they fighting in Space?

So not only is Pacific Rim about giant robots fighting giant monsters, it looks like the fight might be brought to outer space as we can see in this. But who are they dealing with? What kind of Kaiju has the capability to fly off to space, let alone carry a giant mech along with it.  Sounds interesting.
