Guillermo Del Toro, in his pursuit of giving us the baddest of the bad, has gone and out done himself with this new trailer that was shown first at Wondercon last month. Aw man…this is going to be a great film! Just when I thought there may not be a real story behind this film, this trailer reveals much, much more and adds many more levels to a story, that on the surface looks like rock em sock em robots verses Godzilla. Check this baby out!!
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.
