This is a triumph

CES isn't known for its big movie news, but we do usually get a little bit of love out of it. This time around it's in the form of a new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim, a movie clearly all about giant robots punching monsters while Idris Elba gives stirring speeches about controlling jaegers (the giant robots) to punch monsters in the face. 

I don't think there's a person on earth who grew up watching (insert giant monster movie/TV show here) that isn't excited for this film. The only downside I can find is that the casting of the voice of GLaDOS means I don't trust the robot voice at all. I'll be waiting the entire movie for her to turn on humanity.
