New Pacific Rim Videos Reveal Kaiju Monsters and a Robotic Showdown

Director Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim continues to tease its incredible science fiction world with the release of two new videos from the July 12 release. The first features an action-packed showdown between a robotic Jaeger and a monstrous Kaiju beastie and the second video goes behind the scenes of the Kaiju designs.

Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters, the Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures release stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.

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 (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (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.
