I didn't see an official thread for this (alone, at least). The viral is gearing up, so it's time to ramp up the hype machine for this movie even more. For those unfamiliar, the official plot synopsis:
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 and an untested trainee — 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.
Guillermo del Toro put together a solid cast with Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day for what is sure to be an awesome summer blockbuster when it hits July 12th next year.
The viral for the trailer release was released today at www.panpacificdefense.com, where you can see the trailer will presumably hit in two weeks. In the meantime, enjoy the suspense.

Always thought it was interesting how similar it sounded to Evangelion. But I like Del Toro, interested.

Pan's Labyrinth is one of my all time favorite films. Definitely looking forward to this.

HOLY. BALLS. YES. (and this is just the viral) I should mention that this movie is not POV cam shot like Cloverfield. It will be a full-on epic movie akin to Godzilla and other kaiju movies.
Also, a look at one of the Jaegers.
