It’s been a great week for sci-fi fans when it comes to movie trailers! Just in the last week alone studios have released the trailers for ‘Star Trek into Darkness,’ ‘Oblivion,’ ‘After Earth,’ ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation,’ ‘Man of Steel,’ and now add Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ to that list!
‘Pacific Rim’ is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated films coming out next year. Not only because it will be del Toro’s first film he’s directed in five years, but also the premise of giant monsters against giant aliens sounds so epic! So far, Warner Bros. has teased us with a viral campaign consisting of Jaeger blueprints, a “news” segment reporting on the attack of San Francisco and even a countdown clock on the Pan Pacific Defense Corp website. And now the time is finally here! The first trailer for what looks to be an awesome film.
The trailer doesn’t disappoint as the premise of the movie is explained and we finally get to see what a Kaiju and Jaeger look like in full fighting action. All that can be said is “Wow!” This video has just placed ‘Pacific Rim’ as the must see movie of the year.
Move over Godzilla! There’s some new players in town and they are fierce!
Check out the trailer below and tell us if you agree!
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.
