Guillermo del Toro is one of the most exciting directors working in Hollywood and he is FINALLY returning to what he does best this summer with Pacific Rim.
This will be del Toro’s first directorial outing since 2008 as he tackles sci-fi.
The movie promises to be one of the best science fiction movies of the year as robots – controlled by humans – take on an alien invasion.
Check out the latest banner for the film:
Idris Elba and Charlie Hunnam lead the cast list and are tasked with saving the world while Charlie Day and Ron Perlman are also on board.
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.
Pacific Rim is released 12th July
