PACIFIC RIM ‘Under Attack’ featurette

Guillermo del Toro is a director we love here at, so we’re looking forward to his latest flick. Take a gander at this little featurette, hopefully it’ll whet your appetites for a film that he says will be “unlike anything you have ever seen before.”

Here’s the dealio. When legions of monstrous alien 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 shit doesn’t work out well and on the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind 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.

This epic sci-fi action adventure will be released in Australian cinemas on July 11 and is prolly out around the same time in other regions. Or maybe it’s already out. Dunno, that’s what Google is for, dudes.
