At WonderCon last month, fans were offered an advanced look at the new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming sci-fi action flick Pacific Rim. Those who weren’t so lucky to see the trailer at that time were envious of those who did. Now we all can finally feast our eyes on the new full-length trailer. The footage showcases a little bit more story, a bit more Charlie Day, and a lot of eye-popping action sequences and visual effects. Check out the new trailer below.
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.
Pacific Rim unleashes into theaters on July 12th in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D. The sci-fi action flick stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman. What do you think of the new trailer? Post your thoughts in the comment section below.
