Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim is a science fiction movie that will see Guillermo del Toro return to the director's chair for the first time since he helmed Hellboy II: The Golden Army back in 2008.

The movie sees him bring together a cast of established and up and coming stars as Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Rinko Kikuchi are all 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 (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (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.
