This new Pacific Rim trailer focuses a bit more on the people and internal tech than the giant robot/monster fighting. The Mary Sue points to an interesting quote from Legendary Entertainment’s Jon Jashni:
Jashni maintains that the “fanboy psychographic” isn’t limited to men anymore, and that character helps sell a movie to all audience segments. “There’s an emotional aspect to this movie, and there’s a bombastic aspect,” he says. “Some women will respond to the emotion inherent in the movie, some will respond to the spectacle. Same is true for men and adults. ”
Well, at least someone gets it.
