Shut it. This looks awesome and has a great director attached to it.

Cake, and grief counseling, will be available at the conclusion of the test.

Honestly, if it weren't for Idris and Del Toro, this would look like a lazy Michael Bay movie. I hope I'm wrong.

Trailer didn't really give me the "lazy Michael Bay" vibe at all, but yes Del Toro is the main reason I am excited about this. It's a project I have been following for a while and have faith they are going to get it right. I wouldn't assume that just because Hollywood has cranked out some dumb popcorn flicks involving giant robots, that this is such.

I wanted this to be more like Neon Genesis Evangelion but it feels more like Real Steel meets Godzilla.

I'm still interested though since we haven't seen any footage of this "ancient Jaeger" that is written in the synopsis. It could be more bio-mech than the ugly/utilitarian looking ones shown in the trailer.

Well yeah, the whole thing is Del Toro's love letter to Kaijin. It's homage to classic Japanese giant monster films, so it makes sense that you would get the Godzilla vibe from the trailer.
