A new Featurette came out today for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim. I’m not going to watch it because, well because it is one of my most anticipated films of the year and I feel like I’ve seen a lot of great footage already. I don’t want to spoil it for myself. That said, check it out and watch what I am sure is more awesomeness.
Pacific Rim opens on July 12th and stars: Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba and Ron Perlman.
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.
