Pacific Rim marketing has been cranked to 11 for the last couple of weeks with some new images and trailers being released, and their newest trailer, which their calling the “main” trailer, features more of the monster action than ever before. We’ve seen a lot of the robots before, but this trailer finally lets us get a bigger and better look at the massive kaiju the robots will be taking down. Check out Pacific Rim in theaters starting July 12.
PLOT: 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.
