Re: Pacific Rim - Grading and Discussion

I saw this on the basis of a single poster in a movie theater and seeing the trailer a couple of times waiting for other movies. I didn't see a bunch of commercials for it n TV and I wasn't desperate to.

Fill it with big names, flood all media with ads, give away toys with happy meals, it wouldn't have mattered. The concept is ultimately what sells a movie, and this concept was never going to appeal to a broad audience in the United States, and the concepts that do already have established, money-generating franchises.
