The comparisons came fast and furious when the first synopsis for Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim leaked out. Giant robots fighting giant monsters? For kids of a recent generation, it sounded a lot like the cheese-tastic Power Rangers series. Only, you know, awesome.

Members of Generation X, we have some good news—the two have joined forces in a pretty spot-on fan trailer cut. Chopping up the snippets of footage we got to see in the new trailer with a great theme and voiceover track from Power Rangers, the dark sci-fi footage takes on a completely different tone with that jittery techno backing track.

If anything, this makes you wonder how long it will be until someone tries to reboot the Rangers with a decent budget. It might be cheesy, but the name still holds weight. You know, it's only a matter of time.

Check out the trailer below:

What do you think? Do you miss the Rangers?
