That seems like it should legitimately be enough to get people in theaters next summer for Pacific Rim, but Warner Bros. is nonetheless going with something a little more cryptic and elaborate to kick off the promotional push for their film.

SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN. How exciting! I know what I'm still taking my meds for! In the meantime, here's that emergency test and memo:
