We're still over a year out from Guillermo del Toro's return to the big screen. The below synopsis will make the wait that much harder.
Marketsaw revealed the official synopsis for the upcoming epic and, well, read on:
"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."
Rinko Kikuchi, a badass fighter pilot? Plus, Idris Elba, Clifton Collins, Jr., Charlie Day and Ron Perlman?
