Warner Bros. has decided to kick the PR into high gear for the Guillermo del Toro-directed Pacific Rim.
After blowing our minds with the Con trailer premiere, we now have a tremendous banner that sizes up the enormity of the battle ensuing on July 12. I’m a huge fan of Robot Jox and think this looks like the next best thing since 1987!
“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.“
