Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have released the official trailer to the upcoming science fiction movie, Pacific Rim.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea, a war begins that takes millions of lives and consumes humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon is devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers prove 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.
The movie is directed by Guillermo del Toro and also stars Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Ron Perlman with music by Ramin Djawadi.
Pacific Rim is set to open July 2013.
