Two new images and TV spots have surfaced online for director Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim. The film in a nutshell is giant sea monsters (Kaiju) battling human-built giant robots (Jaegers).
This just looks awesome and I can’t think of anyone I would rather have in charge of this than Del Toro. His ability to create unique-looking monsters seems perfectly fit for this project.
Warner Bros. is bringing the thunder this year. They missed early with Gangster Squad and Jack the Giant Slayer, but with smash hits 42, The Great Gatsby, The Hangover Part III and upcoming blockbusters Man of Steel, Pacific Rim, Gravity and the next Hobbit film, it should be record-breaking year at Warner Bros.
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.
