Fan trailer turns Pacific Rim into coolest Power Rangers movie ever

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:
