Humanity is under attack and dammit, we’re not going to take it anymore! Of course, it means a 20-year war against giant monsters from the sea, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, right? Can’t let those monsters be stomping all over our city and whatnot. If anyone’s gonna be stomping on our buildings, it’s gonna be us, dammit!
Anyways. Check out a new three and a half minute featurette for Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim”. It’s just as awesome as you thought it would be. Probably more so. Cause there are giant robots stomping around using oil tankers as a weapon. I mean, how badass is that!
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.
