Pacific Rim Trailer Becomes 127th to Use Inception Sound.

Earlier this month we saw the new Star Trek poster shamelessly rip off Nolan's Dark Knight Rises poster, and now the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's giant robots fighting giant monsters movie, Pacific Rim, becomes the 127th film to rip off the Inception trailer BRAAAAAAAAAARH sound. Although this time it seems to have a bit of a Transformers twist. I know that I get far more excited about a film when it sounds like Optimus Prime is farting all the way through it!

Honestly Hollywood, instead of continually ripping each other off (by "each other" I mean "Christopher Nolan" why not put all your heads together and just release one single week long movie for the entire year? Call it BRAAAAARRRRRH: The Movie. It will make a trillion bucks.

But if you can get past the Inception sound, there are still plenty of other wonderfully derivative things to enjoy about this trailer...

All requisite snarkiness aside, I do enjoy del Toro's work and I am looking forward to this one. Looks like it should be a lot of epic monster punching fun. And maybe that's enough? What do you think then if you're so damn clever?

  1. So what if Iron Man was as BIG as Optimus Prime and he fought GODZILLA???

    I don't know what it would be like, but now we have a way to find out!!!

    That Inception noise is still kind of annoying, but I am becoming deaf to it...sort of how I became deaf to everything that whizzed by quickly in the 80's sounding like a tie fighter...
