There’s a new “PACIFIC RIM” trailer! Enjoy!
We’ve seen most of the Jaegers, gotten a good look at some Kaiju and already know this is a Guillermo del Toro joint. I’m sold, guys. I’m hopping off the promo train, but will not begrudge you more of Idris Elba, monster action or Ron Perlman’s suits.
Warner Bros has gone ahead and unleashed what’s called the “Official Main Trailer” for PACIFIC RIM. I’ve skimmed through and want to live in this world. Not literally, but come this summer, I’m ready for total immersion in kaiju escapades and jaeger resistance (especially from Cherno Alpha).
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.
Written by Travis Beacham and directed by del Toro, PACIFIC RIM is out July 12.
