Ok then, today we’re here to update our giant-robots gallery ’cause we have eight new photos that will give you much better look at Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and… well, robots! Check them out in the rest of this report & let us know what you think!
Guillermo del Toro directs the movie from a script he co-wrote with Travis Beacham, and the film centers on a washed out pilot of a series of robots called Jaegers, which are put into production when Earth invaded by a species of giant monsters, the Kaijus.
Beside Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi, Pacific Rim also stars Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke, Diego Klattenhoff, and the movie is set to open on July 12th, 2013.
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 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.
