Theatrical Trailer for Pacific Rim

Posted May 16th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

A brand new trailer that will be seen in theaters has arrived for Pacific Rim. Directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Idris Elba the film centers on the use of giant robots by humans to fight off an attack by aliens/monsters. Pacific Rim is slated to release on July 12.

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.
