Pacific Rim is getting a lot of attention for a film that’s not even releasing this year. Almost too much. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the exictement and I’m firmly seated on the Guillermo Del Toro bandwagon but it’s a little surprising that this promotion is going on at this time. I guess he read Ridley Scott’s notes on how to promote a movie. It’s probably for the best and I’ll do my best to adapt to this approach. Anyway some new photos have been scanned in and uploaded to the internet for all of our ocular digestion, check ’em out:
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.
