Warner Bros recently unveiled a Wondercon/CinemaCon trailer for the upcoming film, Pacific Rim, from director Guillermo Del Toro. I gotta say, as much as Ron Pearlman and I (and a million other people, lol) wish he would make Hellboy 3, as frustrated as I am, I still have a soft spot for this awesome filmmaker. He has a great and intricate vision for all of his movies. But even more, Del Toro knows how to ante up, take that vision, throw it on a grill and fire that bastard up to a nice, delicious flavor, with just the right special sauce to boot!
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.
I friggin love this guy.
Check out the embed from ComingSoon.net. The film opens in 2D and 3D, and in IMAX on July 12, 2013, starring 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.
