Warner Bros. has brought online a new TV spot for Guillermo del Toro‘s highly anticipated Pacific Rim, featuring new dialogue and stunning footage. The studio has already dropped the jam-packed trailer, TV spot and featurette two months before the release of a monsters-vs-robots picture.
Del Toro also unveiled a large amount of detail surrounding the mythology of this futuristic apocalypse as well as numerous behind-the-scenes secrets.
At this rate, from all of the footage we’ve seen from the movie it looks leaps and bounds beyond what we usually get from CG-heavy film.
Pacific Rim stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Robert Kazinsky, Charlie Day and Max Martini.
The summer blockbuster opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on July 12th, 2013.
Pacific Rim, Man of Steel, Lone Ranger, Wolverine … This summer will be amazing!
Check out some bits of new footage.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
