One of the smartest things that the creators of Pacific Rim have done is not to try to tie it in to any previously established continuity or characters. Though it obviously wears its influences on its sleeves, since they obviously had their own story they wanted to tell, they thankfully didn’t try to use the name of a previously established character or franchise to hide behind in order to do that, allowing the movie to stand or fall on its own. (And yes, I’m looking at you, Man of Steel and any number of other “remakes” or “reimaginings”.)
Look for it (and me) in theaters July 12th.
