Check out the interactive Pacific Rim content vault

In just two days’ time, fanboy favourite Guillermo del Toro unleashes his kaiju homage Pacific Rim [read our ★★★★ review here and listen to the Flickering Myth Pacific Rim review podcast here] and Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released interactive ‘Content Vault’ which has been designed with input from the director and features videos, stills and vlogs, as well as 3D models of the film’s Jaegers…

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.

Pacific Rim opens this Friday (July 12th), with a cast that includes Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Idris Elba (Thor: The Dark World), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Rinko Kikuchi (The Brothers Bloom), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses), Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises) and Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek).
