New Trailer: 'Pacific Rim' Monster Mash
May 16, 2013
There's more monster-mash action in the main trailer for Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi thriller Pacific Rim, and we've got a first look!
The Hellboy director's love letter to the giant monster movies of his youth finds a whole new race of fierce creatures -- called Kaiju -- who emerge from the Pacific to wreak havoc on our cities. The only way to defeat the relentless opponents is by building a fleet of giant robots -- called Jaegers -- to clash with the titans.
With the human race 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.
Also starring Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Clifton Collins, Jr., Pacific Rim stomps into theaters in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on July 12.
