The last couple of trailer for Pacific Rim have concentrated on the monsters, robots and action, and while there’s still a lot of that in this final promo, it also wants to remind us there’s a human side too. There’s also a fun vid featuring Ron Perlman as a monster parts salesman which you can watch below!
Here’s the synopsis: ‘From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, and starring Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Ron Perlman, comes the sci-fi action adventure, Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ PACIFIC RIM.
‘When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that took millions of lives and consumed 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. But in the face of the relentless Kaiju, even the Jaegers prove defenseless.
‘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.’
It’s out in cinemas on July 12th.
