Trailer: Pacific Rim – Guillermo Del Toro’s Bigger-Than-Big Robots Vs. Monsters Film

Don’t expect any other film in 2013 to be on a bigger scale to Pacific Rim. Here’s the first trailer, at long last. I’ve been waiting hungrily to see this since some footage unspooled at Comic-Con.

Pacific Rim will hit UK cinemas on 12th July 2013. The US will get stomped one day earlier, on Thursday 11th.

Here’s the blurb, if you want it.

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.
