It’s Kaiju Versus Jaeger in Latest Feature Trailer for Pacific Rim
We are now full steam ahead in regards to the Summer blockbuster season. Already, Iron Man 3 is breaking the $1 billion mark, Star Trek Into Darkness is looking to have a massive opening this weekend and we’re only just a few weeks in! One of the films that many fans are looking forward to is Pacific Rim, the latest from visionary director Guillermo Del Toro. The film centers on mankind’s battle for survival after aliens emerge from the sea. To fight these monstrous Kaiju, humans initiate the Jaeger program, which consists of giant, human-piloted robots. So far, the trailers have been action packed, dotted with the always inspirational pep-talks from one of the main stars.
The latest feature trailer is no different, but this one ups the ante in regards to the Jaegers battling the Kaiju, and this is just a small sample of the action. Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Idris Elba and Charlie Day. The film is slated for a July 12th release. We’ve seen a lot of alien invasion style films over the years, but I think Del Toro has added a new element here with the Jaegers. Usually, we see mankind fighting back with the typical military arsenal: jets, artillery, tanks, etc. With the Jaegers, it adds a new, giant-sized hand-to-hand combat feel, something we haven’t previously seen before.
