Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim is still some months away from its US release date of July 11th, one day further from its bow in the UK on the 12th, but progress is apparently good.
Rian Johnson, the director of Brick and Looper, has seen an unfinished version of the film and reviewed it, perhaps more properly previewed it, in a single tweet.
Go into Pacific Rim prepared to be transmogrified into a 12 year old. And then to pee your pants with joy. I love it so much.

Sounds like it taps right into the bit of the heart that wants giant robots for giant robots’ sake. In my case, that’s not such a pronounced bit, I have to admit, but Del Toro’s such a fine storyteller that I’m looking forward to the film hugely.
