It has been a long time since we have seen Guillermo Del Toro in the director’s chair – his last film was Hellboy II: The Golden Army… but this summer he is back.
Pacific Rim is his new project and it is set to be one of the must see sci-fi films of 2013.
Check out some new images from the film:
Del Toro has assembled a great cast for the movie as Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman and Charlie Day are all set to star in the film.
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.
