Idris ElbaCharlie DayCharlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman in a Guillermo del Toro movie about humans fighting aliens with giant machines? I’m definitely going to be seeing this one in the theater!

I know nothing about this movie. In fact, this is the first trailer I’ve actually watched for it. I have been aware of the hype for a while but I’ve kept my distance. It actually made watching the new trailer that much more enjoyable.
