New Trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM
Yet another trailer for director Guillermo del Toro‘s monster epic, Pacific Rim, has been released online. The film pits humanity in a fight to save mankind when legions of monsters, known as Kaiju, rise from the sea and threaten the extinction of the human race. In order to engage the Kaiju in combat, massive robots were erected, called Jaegers. “In order to fight monsters, we created monsters of our own.” The new trailer rehashes some footage from the WonderCon trailer from a few weeks ago and, yet again, boasts stunning visuals and impressive action sequences. There is no doubt that Pacific Rim is meant for the biggest screen possible. Hit the jump to take a look.
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.
