New Featurette For Pacific Rim Explains “The Drift”

pacific-rim-poster-bannerWe previously showed you the extended trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming sci-fi action flick, Pacific Rim and now we get a fantastic behind-the-scenes featurette.  The featurette explains how the two Jaeger pilots are connected through a neural bridge, something they call “The Drift“.

Screen Shot 2013-05-21 at 9.11.42 PMWhen 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.

Screen Shot 2013-05-21 at 9.14.16 PMOn 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.

Screen Shot 2013-05-21 at 9.17.28 PMPacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.  The movie slams into 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on July 12.
