Wow! Seriously, I mean WOW! The first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim is here and it is just awesome. Giant freaking robots (Jaegers) fighting giant monsters. Yes please. My inner 8-year-old self is screaming up and down with excitement right now. This looks like a really fun movie. Can’t wait to see it. Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day, and is directed by Guillermo del Toro. Pacific Rim will be released on July 12th, 2013.
SYNOPSIS: When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
