What’s that you say? You can’t possibly ever get too much of Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim”? Well I’m glad to hear that, because here are even more from the monsters vs. robots movie, or as I like to call it, “Robot Jox with Monsters”. Check out a new, extended 2-minute TV spot and a fresh batch of monster mayhem images from the upcoming sci-fi flick.
For those of you who think all of this is a tad overkill, feel free to keep on driving down the road. Nothing to see here, keep on moving…
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.
