New ‘Pac Rim’ Trailer Takes Awesome to the Next Level


Something tells me this number is going to show up before screenings of Star Trek Into Darkness tonight…

This new Pacific Rim trailer has the same beats, and features some of the same footage that the Comic Con trailer that was released a few weeks ago featured, but there’s some new stuff in there too. Regardless, I think at this point, if Pacific Rim blows it will be the biggest nerd disappointment since The Phantom Menace, and I don’t think we all want to revisit that kind of disappointment.

Plot SynopsisWhen 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 and an untested trainee — 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 will be in theaters on July 14.
