Atlantic Rim Trailer

Hey, despite zero thought into this except a direct steal from the upcoming Pacific Rim, they did put this together quite fast.

I would have to guess this kicked into gear after Del Toro's first trailer. There is just way to many similarities going on here.

Atlantic Rim may look like lawsuit bait after the last year’s legal woes The Asylum had over their Battleship and Hobbit mockbusters. It better not because it also looks pretty damn cool if you’re like me and believe you can never have enough movies about giant robots battling giant monsters.

Now that I think about it, “to fight monsters we created monsters” could almost be The Asylum’s mantra when it comes to competing all these years in a marketplace dominated by big Hollywood blockbusters.

When the floor of the Atlantic Ocean rips open, flooding the East Coast with giant monsters, Academy Award nominee Graham Greene recruits ex-"Baywatch" lifeguard David Chokachi to join Naughty by Nature’s Anthony “Treach” Criss and 100 Ghost Street: The Return of Richard Speck’s Jackie Moore in piloting giant robots built to protect the world from these monstrous menaces. If Atlantic Rim has a sense of humor about its origins, one of the giant robots will be named “Toro”.

Piloting the film is Jared Cohn, director of The Asylum’s first-ever theatrical release Hold Your Breath.

The role of the East Coast of the United States is played by the Gulf Coast’s Pensacola, Florida, the actual location where the movie was shot.

Though the trailer and artwork bills the movie as Atlantic Rim, according to Amazon and all other retailers, the film Asylum is releasing to Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on July 9th - three days before the opening of Pacific Rim - sports the lackluster alternate title Attack from Beneath. I’m hoping that’s going to change back to Atlantic Rim because if you’re going to go full-on mockbuster, then you might as well go all the way with it. Go big or go extinct, right?

Can’t wait to see what mockbuster they come up with for next year’s Godzilla reboot.
