Pacific Rim goes viral!
Guillermo Del Toro's behind one of next year's biggest films. The director of Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth is set to deliver an epic monsters vs robots sci-fi slug-fest. With Del Toro's visual flair and storytelling skills this promises to be a whole lot more than just another FX heavy mash up.
In this neat viral we get a first glimpse of the alien beasts pushing Earth towards an apocalypse. Move over Cloverfield, this looks awesome!
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.
Also starring Idris Elba and Ron Perlman, Pacific Rim is in cinemas July 12th 2013.
