[adrotate banner=”1″]We got another Pacific Rim trailer with a bunch of new action and I think it’s impossible for me to be more hyped for this film. If I were to express my excitement in text form there would be a solid line of exclamation points until the opening night! For the sake of readability and my database size, I’ll not do that…yet! Until then, let’s just geek out on the trailers and posters because that’s what we do!
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.
