Guillermo del Toro's latest action-adventure flick "Pacific Rim" will soon make a big splash in theaters this summer. And here's something to tide you over until then: it's the first 30-second TV Spot, which apparently is airing overseas. The spot, sadly, doesn't feature any new footage from the robots-vs-monsters spectacle. It seems to be a simple breakdown of the previous trailer. However, a full-length 3D preview with all new footage should be arriving in theaters soon. So keep your eyes peeled for that.
"Pacific Rim," starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Clifton Collins, Jr, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman, opens nationwide 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.
