    Hmm, yeah... not feeling this one unfortunately. GDT's was original and exciting, whereas this just looks like a Transformers/Power Rangers rip-off. All those teenyboppers makes me think they're hoping to make this the next big thing and start a franchise out of it or something... no thanks! :wtf:

    So I've watched this trailer approximately a dozen or so times now and this is what I've come to...

    While yes, it does look more Transformers/Power Rangers than Pacific Rim, it still looks kinda fun, so I'm going to watch it. When I watched the trailer for the first PR, I was immediately smiling. For this trailer, it took me about 5 or so watches before I started smiling. The little bit of the PR theme at the beginning of the trailer made me grin, but as soon as it cut to that crappy hip hop song with all the teenyboppers running around, my grin faded.

    Now I've just come to realize that this was never going to be the sequel to PR that any fan would want, so I'm going to take it for what it is -- a soft reboot aimed more towards kids than adults like the first film. Mako Mori being all business-like kinda annoys me, and the toned down Newton and Herman is not really what I wanted... but at least they're all there.

    The scenes in the sunlight look bad. There's a reason why GDT shot his film in the dark... in the rain.

    But yeah, I'm finally smiling while watching the trailer. It's not what I wanted from my PR sequel, but if this succeeds and makes more bank than the first film, maybe we'll get a third film... and maybe that can bring back Raleigh Becket and Hannibal Chau (I want him to find his shoe).

    I'm willing to give Uprising a shot, but please, Legendary... get rid of that crap music and bring back Ramin Djawadi and Tom Morello instead.
