Man of Steel and Pacific Rim compete against each other to capture the attention of moviegoers in recent days.
Now it’s Pacific Rim’s turn to show us some new footage from the movie. Here’s the latest TV spot for Guillermo del Toro‘s epic monsters vs. robots showdown flick with an even closer look at Charlie Hunnam‘s character, Raleigh Beckett, and his recruitment into the Jaeger program.
Beckett is tasked with piloting one of the robots alongside rookie officer Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) to save the day and avenge the family she lost in a Kaiju attack on her native Tokyo.
Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinski, Clifton Collins Jr., Diego Klattenhoff, and Burn Gorman all lend support.
Sci-fi action-thriller, set 15 years after the kaiju creatures emerged from the sea, destroying everything in its path. To combat this scourge, several countries built enormous Jaeger robots to try and win back the planet.
Take a look at the latest footage from this upcoming summer thrill ride, filled with gorgeous special effects that will smash its way into theaters 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 (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.
