'Pacific Rim' Teases the Size of Its VilliansDamon Houx |
Though we haven't heard much about 'Pacific Rim' lately, it's one of our most anticipated movies of the year and of the summer. We're sure that a new trailer for the Guillermo del Toro film will hit sooner or later, but until then here's a teaser image that shows how big the bad guys are.
And here it is:
This is likely from the beginning of the movie, before chaos breaks out, which means it may start in a similar fashion as the 1998 version of 'Godzilla,' but news reports at the beginning of a disaster movie are par for the course.Who cares, though, the movie looks amazing, and we can't wait.
Here's the film's synopsis. 'Pacific Rim' hits theaters July 12.
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.
