New trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ VIDEO

Warner Bros. has put together a new trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim for Qualcomm’s presentation at CES 2013.

The “Hellboy” director presents a story about rise of monsters (known as Kaiju) from the sea who start a war that devastates humanity and to fight back, the humans build giant robots (known as Jaegers) that are controlled by two pilots.

Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff star.

Pacific Rim opens July 12, 2013.

 

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.
