The latest and greatest trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” spends its two and a half minutes focusing on Charlie Hunnam’s character, who is also the film’s male lead. Yes, it’s true. “Pacific Rim” does not actually star sentient giant robots fighting monsters. It’s about people inside those giant robots! Well, here’s the guy who leads them, played by the dude from the “Sons of Anarchy” TV show.
Please to enjoy.
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.
Starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, and Ron Perlman.
