One of the big summer blockbuster bets of next year is Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim. It’s out July 12th, but so far we’ve seen little from it, other than a few relatively nondescript pictures. Now the first footage has shown up online, allied to a viral site that’s just launched.
There are two vids, one a ‘Test of the Kaiju Emergency Alert System’, which is little more than a test card, while the other is a news report about giant monsters attacke San Francisco. As monsters, aliens and the likes have an inborn hatred of world famous landmarks (according to the movies, anyway), it doesn’t bode well for the Golden gate Bridge.
It’s not clear if this is footage from the actual movie or specially created viral marketing footage. Either way we get our first look at the 300ft Kaiju monsters, that in the film come through some sort of portal in the Pacific. Mankind’s only way to respond if putting human pilots in massive robots, who take on this deadly threat. Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Rinko Kikuchi star.
