What a week for trailers its been. STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, OBLIVION, AFTER EARTH, MAN OF STEEL and now this, the long awaited first look at Guillermo del Toro's Monsters vs. Mechas smackdown PACIFIC RIM. And as good as those aforementioned teasers were, this just might trump them all. 2013 couldn't come soon enough. 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.
UK Release Date: JULY 12TH 2013
