Before, we may have wondered how Pacific Rim was able to get the budget it did. It isn't based on a previous franchise. It's directed by Guillermo del Toro, who can't carry films by himself. Its biggest star is Idris Elba, who doesn't have very much star power. In this day and age, what studio greenlights that? Thanks to the newest trailer that was released today, I now understand. And I'm pretty sure that after viewing it, you will too.
