The first 30-second domestic spot for Guillermo del Toro's giant robots vs. monsters flick "Pacific Rim" which aired during last night's season finale of "The Simpsons" has now arrived online. This new TV Spot has little new footage, but does give a great feel of what spectacular effects and intense action fans will have in store for them when they go see del Toro's first 3D film in theaters this summer.
"Pacific Rim," stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, 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.
