If you didn't think today's movie marketing contains many spoilers have a look at this comment (excuse the misspellings) left on the latest Pacific Rim TV spot.

This Trailer preety much confirms the following: Cherno alpha, Crymson Typhon, and Coyote Tango get destroyed during the battle of Hong Kong (the big climatic battle where all 5 jaegers are deployed). Im almost certain the scene where Jipsy and Striker are in the ocean is post HK battle, and there going on´╗┐ a final assault against the Portal to stop further Kaijus from crossing again.

For someone like Darklarik3, who has clearly paid attention to a lot of the film's marketing, it would seem the only surprises the film would have left to offer would be the survival of Cherno alpha, Crymson Typhon and/or Coyote Tango before the Hong Kong battle where all the Jaegers get all whatnot on the Kaiju with Jipsy and Striker leading the way. Right? Or, I mean, huh?

Now, if you can handle the noise, give the trailer a watch and let me know if you were able to come away with just as much information.

Pacific Rim hits theaters on July 12.

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' epic sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Oscar nominee Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) is directing Pacific Rim from a script by Travis Beacham (Clash of the Titans). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV's Sons of Anarchy), Idris Elba (Thor), Rinko Kikuchi (The Brothers Bloom), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses), and Ron Perlman (the Hellboy films). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.

    Pacific Rim is starting to feel like one of those movies where I Wikipedia the plot after it comes out because I just don't care enough to wait either until or if I see the film. That's what I ended up doing with Fast and Furious 6.

    Sometimes it isn't even really a spoiler to do that. My interest in Pacific Rim is also waning every time I see trailers for it though. Which reminds me..............outside the internet is there much buzz starting for this yet? I'm not sure I'm detecting any significant levels yet.

    • Brad Brevet

      I can't figure out what to expect. The marketing has been like a sledgehammer to the face and I'm praying it isn't representative of the film at all.

      • Winchester

        It feels that way. If I see that boat getting lifted one more time............

        I could be wrong, I may well be I just think it's too neon looking to probably do much more than it says on the tin. But part of me thinks Del Toro is just looking to try and get a bone fide big hitting blockbuster under his CV to try and grease the wheels on other projects he wants funding for.

        I don't know what this cost but it looks like it's built more for the Japanese/Chinese market more than anywhere else.

    • G-Man

      I don't think it will be hugely popular, but think there will be reasonable interest in the States (probably more internationally). It's opening against Grown Ups 2, which I think it will beat in the first weekend domestically. My preliminary guess for opening domestic is about $45 million.

    I am excited to see it; have avoided most of the marketing; just saw one complete trailer...I think it might be a flop in the U.S but should do more than decent numbers overseas.

  • Good Grief

    What I got from the tv spot...


    Was I meant to be able to get ANYTHING from that thirty seconds of footage? Apparently robot 1 punches monster 1 in the face, Samcro turns up to sort things out and...DUBSTEP ENSUES.

    ADD like cra-zy!

  • Mario Daccarett

    Cayote tango isn't in the Hong Kong battle. He got a lot wrong in that youtube comment. 3 jeagers are deployed to fight 2 kaijus, only confirmed destruction is cherno alpha.

  • G-Man

    I'm guessing the plot will be nothing earth shattering, but I'm looking forward to turning my brain off and having some fun checking this out. This is coming from someone who has never seen a Transformers movie.

  • Driver

    I saw the comic con footage today at a Man of Steel press screening and they spoiled that whole fight on sea outside Hong Kong. Even with that, I'm still excited to see it, and it was a 16 minute video, that included the introduction, a fight and some dialogue.

    According to Del Toro, that fight in Hong Kong is 25 minutes long so I guess I got a lot more to see, even if I already got the plot. By the way, the film's sound its amazing.

  • Yaz

    Damn. Eye candy galore. I liked the way the spot is cut. Looks badass. No idea what to expect from the film, but I think there's an artistry to this kind of work, especially in an IMAX environment, and I'm excited.

  • Chris138

    The marketing for this film has really done nothing to pique my interest. Watching a bunch of robots smashing each other for a couple of hours sounds like a snooze to me. But, I do really like Guillermo del Toro's work so I'm willing to give the film a chance his involvement alone.

  • EPayneDDS

    If you have to turn off your brain to enjoy a movie, does that make it a good movie?

    • Yaz

      Depends on what you'd classify as 'a good movie'.

    • Winchester

      I think sometimes it does, yes. It really depends on what a film offers vs what a viewer is wanting for the time it lasts.

  • andyluvsfilms

    im quite looking forward to this one but as each new trailer comes out my enthusiasm seems to get less and less, the first trailer is still the best

  • maja

    It seems like the marketing on this film just gets worse and worse. They have really managed to make this movie look like garbage and I have completely lost interest in it.
