Am I wrong if I say that all the promotion, as of late, for Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, is pretty damn sexy? Okay, I thought not. It just is, it’s really tapping into areas of my masculinity I had no idea even existed. Too much? I mean come on, after that Wondercon trailer ,that was amazing! This may be my only saving grace if I expect to get my wife in the theater to watch this film. Sexybots!! Hey maybe they will unveil a female mech, oh man…we’ve crossed into uncharted waters, but I know there are those of you out there willing to take that voyage with me.
Opening July 12, Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.
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.
