The first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim has debuted. The giant monsters-fighting-robots film has been pretty secretive outside of the Comic Con footage description this summer. With the first trailer released, we can finally see what Del Toro has in store for fans. The film seems to be of epic proportions and stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, and Rinko Kikuchi and hits July 12, 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.
Starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman, Pacific Rim will be released on July 12, 2013.
