First thought: It's basically Evangelion with a budget and live action.

Second thought: But it looks soawesomeomgomgomg!

Never thought I'd see anyone on DD who's seen Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Here's hoping the second trailer shows us some glimpse of what the actual story is, since two hours of giant robots battling giant monsters doesn't exactly set my pulse racing...

I had the same feeling when I saw the Prometheus trailer, but we all know what happened.

First thought: Seriously? Someone's going to pay to see this?

Second thought: I've lost all respect for Emily.

Hmmm... That was disappointing.

GDT was the wrong choice for this film.

In fact, the whole concept is wrong, just dull and played out.

I mean seriously, some of those shots look lifted straight out of Godzilla.

The mechas are not cool, they are too big, slow and ungraceful. Just like they can't get Jetfire or Starscream right in Transformers because it requires style and flair, so to Eva's end up looking like industrial washing machines with legs.

What they should have made is Macross/Robotech.

What did a whole generation grow up watching... Robotech... Beautiful women, sleek transforming fighter jets, interesting aliens, it's all there.

Imagine a Zack Synder slightly arty Robotech trailer that was faithful to the Japanese designs. I'm just stunned that no one has done it yet. I'd make it in a heartbeat if I had a spare 200 mill, instead we get this unholy mix of GI:Joe, Transformers and Godzilla.

No this is gonna be great. I read the two versions of the script. It has a good story. This isn't just standard Tentpole bs. I think it's gonna be a hit. It will make a killing overseas.

Why is GLADOS from Portal the voice of the robot? Or did I just accidentally out myself as a game nerd.

I do agree, Snyder would kill this. Still think GDT will impress the doubters.
