In the last featurette, we learned more about “The Drift”. Now Guillermo del Toro takes us behind the scenes to show us just how extraordinary his set were for Pacific Rim. The next three minutes and fifty-one seconds will give you a whole new appreciation for del Toro and his gift for telling unbelievably captivating stories.
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.
Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim SLAMS into theaters on July 12 and stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.
Check out the featurette below and wait impatiently like the rest of us for July 12th. This summer is so packed with great movies but THIS one looks like it will be extremely hard to beat. I REALLY can’t wait….YOU?
