I could be wrong, but this new trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming sci-fi monster actioner looks like it has a tad more giant robot mayhem than the previously released trailer. It also gets to the action way faster with almost no set-up, a short voiceover by Charlie Hunnam, that rah-rah speech by Idris Elba, and wham-bam robot action ma’am. Robot punch away! Ahem.
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.
Also starring Ron Perlman, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Max Martini, Robert Maillet, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, Heather Doerksen, and Larry Joe Campbell.
