View the Trailer: “Pacific Rim”


You might recall back in July when we first brought you news of Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming Kaiju film Pacific Rim. Well we’re happy to report that today Warner Bros. has finally released the first trailer – as well as some awesome looking blueprints of the giant Jaeger mecha.

This is the kind of film that in less accomplished hands could easily come out looking like a made-for-TV SyFy channel movie, but if this trailer is any indication, del Toro is once again going to be delivering the goods.

Check out the trailer and new images below – and a bonus newsreel video!

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.
