First Trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM – Plus New Poster
The first full-length trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming sci-fi flick Pacific Rim has been released. With a lot of hype behind the film, the first trailer certainly delivers. Showcasing amazing visuals, the scope of the film looks massive. Pacific Rim finds humanity at war with giant monsters called “Kaiju.” The only way to defend themselves against the Kaiju, humans must create massive robots for combat – hence the tagline of the poster “to fight monsters, we created monsters.” Hit the jump to check out the new trailer and poster!
Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff and hits theaters in 3D on July 12th, 2013.
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.
