Essentially this is the guy who made 'Hellboy' and 'Pan's Labyrinth' directing a film with big f*cking robots fighting big f*cking monsters.

Enough said.

Don't forget he is also the director who did two of my favorite movies. Cronos and especially The excellent and underrated The Devil's Backbone.

Also this will be great to have Ron Pearlman back with Del Toro again! They both fit very well together for Cronos.

It looks okay. Not really my thing and the GLaDOS voice is mad jarring.

Finally, exceited a big budget/blockbuster/summer movie is being made by a good director, like, an actual director that knows how to do some great art direction and designs.

Looks alright. But if it didn't have Del Toro's name all the counter-culture people here would be calling it some generic CG wannabe Transformers crap.

Pretty much. It looks ok, and I'm holding out hope and higher standards because it does in fact have Del Toro's name on it, but the trailer doesn't make it look like a masterpiece or anything.

Looks like a live action version of Neon Genesis Evangelion, minus the kids. *shrugs* What the hell, I'm sure I'll end up watching it, but it doesn't really look like anything more than robots vs monsters. As much as I complained about it, the Man of Steel trailer interested me a lot more than this. Granted,

I'm pleased to see mention of my favourite Del Toro movie: So much tragedy and injustice and then, at the end, a brilliant and fitting catharsis!

The trailer was quite bland, but the film has more than enough talent behind it to make me want to see it.

It sounds cheap that they borrowed a video game sound effect (GLaDOS's synthesized voice of Ellen McClain). Did del Toro run out of money with the special effects that he had no money left to spend on sound? It would be awesome if the actual "character" of GLaDOS was worked into the movie, but I don't think that is the case.

Mmmm.. thats a good cup of monster movie.

I wonder if the giant monsters are the invaders or if they are just some huge juggernaut war beasts kinda things sent by some other intelligent race.

Make it sound like he ripped lines straight from the game. More like he's shouting out to how awesome the game is and giving an actor an even bigger audience. Millions of people that don't even care about Portal will see this movie and hear her voice.

Anyone who has seen any interview with Del Toro would know why he would cast her to do the voice.
