New Banner for Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM

Posted April 30, 2013 by Rick in Movie News


Kaiju (monsters) rose from the sea causing a war that destroyed many lives and resources for years on end.  Massive robots, also known as Jaegers, were build especially to destroy Kaiju monsters but even the Jaegers were no match for Kaiju.  Two unlikely heros- a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)— must come together to defeat Kaiju and drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.  Mankind’s last hope against the Kaiju apocalypse lies in their hands.

Director Guillermo del Toro‘s “monsters vs. robots” movie seems interesting and thrilling.  Yesterday’s WonderCon trailer for the film showed what happens when a studio like Warner Bros. gives a visionary filmmaker like Del Toro an important significant budget and says “go play.”  A new banner has been released and it definitely shows the excitement that Pacific Rim has to offer.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Idris Elba, and Ron Perlman.  Pacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th.
