Summer’s biggest monsters vs. robots film (well, the only monsters vs. robots film of this Summer, anyway) is set to duke it out with the box office in July. Until then, check out a handful of new images from the upcoming sci-fi actioner. If you didn’t get excited about seeing this thing when you first heard about it, then went bonkers when you saw the first trailer, let’s face it, this isn’t your kind of movie. Too bad for you, bub. For the rest of us? “Pacific Rim” is the kind of movie we’ve wanted to make (or see made) since we saw our very first episode of “Robotech” or “Voltron”.
All I can say is, Thanks, Guillermo del Toro, for making the 12-year old in me all kinds of giddy. You rock, man.
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 and an untested trainee -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, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Heather Doerksen, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Max Martini.
The brawl begins this July 12, 2013.
