New Pacific Rim Viral Video Gives Us Our First (Shaky) Look at the Kaiju [VIDEO]

Are you excited about Pacific Rim yet? If not, take a look at this viral video, featuring the first look at the alien monsters (or Kaiju) that serve as the film’s antagonists. It might do the trick.

Admittedly, watching the video I found myself getting distracted by how similar it is to Cloverfield, so my thoughts were only 75% “I’m so excited for Pacific Rim!” to 25% “This whole monster-showing-up-and-destroying-a-bridge thing is very familiar.” That’s not a concern that should carry over to the film itself though, as it starts after the whole alien-invasion thing has already gone down.

Hit the jump for a (relatively clear) screencap of the Kaiju chilling atop an aircraft carrier.

    Cloverfield… but in SF! I love movies that take place in my city, even if they are destroying it.

    I love a good gigantic monster movie ;w;

    I’m excited about the picture, having heard about it since almost immediately after Del Toro’s adaptation of “Mountains of Madness” fell through. This particular teaser goes so over board in trying not to give the movie’s visuals away that it’s actually irritating to watch. If this had been my first exposure to the movie, I wouldn’t be interested.

    Man, I hope the movie is better than that.
