Newest trailer packs in plenty of action.Summer blockbusters are unlikely to come any bigger than Pacific Rim, certainly in terms of scale as the recently released trailer shows. The video explains the threat facing humans as the Kaiju rose from beneath the Pacific and set about destroying cities around the world. Rather than simply accepting fate or depending on old war machines, the humans decided to fight back with giant robots.
There’s plenty of action on display here as we see how the pilots control the hulking beasts, yet how nimble they can be occasionally in melee combat. The Kaiju are no slouches either, so this promises to be a herculean battle.
Pacific Rim is directed by Guillermo Del Toro, who has built somewhat of a reputation for himself in the realm of special effects, and stars the likes of Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day. However, the real stars of the film are likely to be the robots and Kaiju. We’ll see how this battle plays out when Pacific Rim hits cinemas on July 12th.
