‘Pacific Rim’ Trailer Hits With A Lot Of Explosions
From the first trailer for Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro’s epic creature feature, the film appears to land somewhere between Power Rangers and last Godzilla flick. Not to say the film does not look awesome due to those references but it was my first thought.
The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day, Pacific Rim opens July 12, 2013.
Pacific Rim Synopsis
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.
