Not to be mistaken with The Asylum’s “Pacific Rim” knock-off (or as they prefer to call them, “Mockblusters”) “Atlantic Rim”, of course.
This is being called the “official main trailer” for “Pacific Rim”. I honestly don’t know what that means. Does that make the other trailers not “official”? I dunno. Maybe they mean this is the trailer they’ll be using to promote the movie from now on. Whatever the case, it’s chock full of giant robot action and Charlie Hunnam’s very helpful voiceover narration. The trailer features some ridiculously killer shots of the Jaegars and Kaiju in action (lots and lost of Jaegars and Kaiju in action!), which, let’s face it, is what you kids want. Looks like you’re going to get it!
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.
