Did you feel that? A mech-sized look at PACIFIC RIM has been unleashed.
Just a few weeks ago, PACIFIC RIM and its mechs, called Jaegers, were teased via blueprint and I doubt that prepared us for the astounding scale and just stirring world with which Guillermo del Toro's new film presents itself. Both the Jaegers and Kaiju look absolutely immense and the promise (it's del Toro here, so it's a promise) of a defining new monster movie is one we can't wait to see this production make good on. Submitted for your approval below is the official synopsis, the official trailer and an unofficial screencap of a Kaiju getting knocked the fuck out.
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.
PACIFIC RIM stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman. It blows our minds July 13, 2013.
