Check out this new trailer for "Pacific Rim," Guillermo del Toro's latest sci-fi action flick that centers on the epic battle between giant robots and giant monsters. This brand-new preview was shown during tonight's Qualcomm keynote CES gathering in Las Vegas. It features more mind-blowing footage from the film, and largely focuses on the human alliance who's been given the monumental task to save humanity from these malicious alien monsters that have risen from an inter-dimensional portal deep within the Pacific ocean.
"Pacific Rim" stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Clifton Collins, Jr, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman, and is scheduled to open in theaters on July 12th.
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.
