I think the new trailer from Wondercon is pretty much showing it to be a strong contender! There’s aliens and robots punching the snot out of each other. Hopefully there’s a script the strong enough to pull it all together, but not so much to take away from the actual reason most of us are going to go and see it. Which is cheering loudly for some MASSIVE battles and awesome effects that only come with a Guillermo Del Toro flick!
Add to that the awesome talents of Idri Elba (Stringer Bell: The Wire) and Ron Perlman (Clay: Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy) and this is going to be all flavours of amazing!!!
Watch and enjoy, Dammit!
