The first TV spot has taken over for Guillermo del Toro’s awesome Pacific Rim, and you had better check it out below! The TV spot is short, but very very sweet and even features a small amount of new footage for your viewing pleasure. It also features the now infamous speech by Idris Elba where he announces “We are cancelling the apocalypse!!!”
Not only that, but a very awesome new image has been released which shows a rather large Kaiju on the attack. The image has been seen in all the trailers and the very first footage, but to see it as a still allows you to take in the view and fully appreciate the enormous size of the monster. The image is also below.
Directed by Guillermo del Toro and written by Travis Beacham, Pacific Rim stars Idris Elba (Prometheus), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Charlie Hunnam (Horrible Bosses), Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr, Rinko Kikuchi and Robert Maillet.
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.
Release Date 12th July 2013
