Viral Videos + Artwork: First Look At The Monsters And Robots From Director Guillermo del Toro’s Sci-Fi Epic, ‘Pacific Rim’
Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ wowed fans at this years Comic-Con when they seen a special preview of the upcoming sci-fi epic. We too finally get a first look at what is shaping up to be next summers biggest blockbuster, with a preview of the massive Mech robots and the Kaiju monsters that will feature in the film.
The movies stars Sons of Anarchy actors, Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman. Here’s a plot summary, followed by viral videos and images:
“Legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and begin a war that would takes millions of lives and consumes 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 (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.”
First up check out the blueprints for 4 of the 7 unique Mechs, which are called Jaegers. The ones that were released are the Jaegers from Japan, Russia and the US.
The website Pan Pacific Defense Corps has gone also online and is currently counting down to December 12th. December 12th is the release date for The Hobbit. So we can probably expect the first full trailer for Pacific Rim to be attached to The Hobbit in cinemas.
Now for the awesome viral video monster tease! EnJoy!
Pacific Rim is due to hit theatres July 13th next year.
