Pacific Rim trailer released

Visionary director Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi epic Pacific Rim debuts its first trailer and releases official synopsis.
After he walked away from directing duties on The Hobbit (although he’s still credited as a co-writer) and a failed attempt to get H. P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness made, Guillermo del Toro channelled all his creative energy into Pacific Rim his first film since Hellboy 2 in 2008.
Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures have just released the official synopsis for the eagerly awaited blockbuster.
“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.”
Co-starring Idris Elba, Charlie Day and ‘Hellboy’ himself Ron Perlman, Pacific Rim is released in 3D and IMAX screens on July 12 2013.
