This is an interesting look at what the actors had to go through and what methods Guillermo del Toro used to bring the world of Jaeger’s battling mammoth monsters to the big screen. Toro pitches Pacific Rim as:
“The action in the movie is what you would have dreamt to see when you were eleven years old.”
It’s Rock’um Sock’um Robots on a giant scale with Godzilla like monsters thrown in. I’m all about that. Take a look at the featurette below and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
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 hits theater screens on July 12th and stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman.
