Yes, the Summer movies of 2012 haven’t finished unspooling yet – we still have “The Dark Knight Rises“, “The Bourne Legacy“, “The Expendables 2” and, if the weather gets warm enough and I really need some air conditioning in a hurry, the “Total Recall” remake to look forward to – but it’s never too early to look forward to next summer.

To the likes of “Iron Man 3″, “Star Trek 2″, the next “Fast & Furious” and Superman reboot, “Man of Steel“, many a discerning nerd will be anxious to see Guillermo Del Toro‘s deeply artistic and emotionally resonant take on the Giant, Ass-Kicking Mech Robots genre, “Pacific Rim”.

Idris Elba, looking absolutely bad ass in “Pacific Rim”. Not that this is news, frankly…

I’m hoping for this to give one of the best living film makers out there a huge platform and the blockbuster hit which he really deserves – if the notion of the director of “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “Hellboy” doing a massive summer sci-fi pic and bringing his unique level of strange and beautiful vision to it isn’t exciting on several levels to you, there may be no hope for you.
