Giant monster, meet giant robot fist. After a storm of teasers, posters, viral clips and other sundry marketing materials the official main trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim has arrived. And it has lots and lots of what people want from the summer blockbuster: Giant monsters being punched in the face by giant robots.
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.
