In just under six weeks time, mankind will make one last stand against the Kaiju in filmmaker Guillermo del Toro’s eagerly-anticipated sci-fi blockbuster Pacific Rim and Warner Bros. has released a new TV spot, which is packed with plenty of giant robot vs. giant monster mayhem. Check it out after the official 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 and an untested trainee —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.”
Pacific Rim invades cinemas on July 12th, with a cast that includes Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Rinko Kikuchi (The Brothers Bloom), Idris Elba (Prometheus), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses), and Ron Perlman (Hellboy).
