‘Pacific Rim’ Trailer: When Man and Machine Become One
Just when you thought there couldn’t be another ‘Pacific Rim‘ trailer to show us any new footage of Guillermo del Toro‘s epic fight between robots and monsters, here comes the “main” one from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.
Sure, there are more mentions of those catchphrases we’ve heard countless times — “today we’re canceling the apocalypse!” and “go big or go extinct” — and more of the same footage that got us pumped in weeks past, but there are a few gems. Like how about an image of one of the Kaiju monsters unleashing a storm of electrical pulses capable of laying these Jaeger bots flat on their asses?
‘Pacific Rim’ imagines what would happen if Godzilla-sized sea monsters known as Kaiju rose from the ocean depths and ravaged major cities. Well, what happens is that humanity rises up against them by initiating the “Jaeger program” — the creation of these giant robots each manned by a pair of pilots. Who will win out in the end?
‘Pacific Rim’ features a cast that includes Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman, and hits theaters this July 12. Check out the main ‘Pacific Rim’ trailer below and re-watch some of the footage we are all looking forward to seeing on the big screen.
