Seriously impressive new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim

Seriously impressive new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim

Warner Bros has released what they’re calling the official main trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim. Suffice to say that this is the most epic one to date.

The story is basically the plot of Monsters vs Aliens, except that the Monsters are the bad-guys and giant robot mechs called Jaegars are the good guys. But hey that’s in no way a bad thing.

The top drawer cast features Charle Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman. Couple that with uber-stylist Del Toro behind the camera and we have a winner!

Pacific Rim (in IMAX and 3D) hits our shores on July 12th, 2013.

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.
