Pacific Rim: Man, Machines & Monsters, the ultimate companion book to the upcoming movie Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim, is set to hit bookstores and online retailers on June 12, 2013. The film, an epic sci-fi action adventure from acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro, opens in theaters July 12, 2013.
The film takes on humanity’s struggle to defend itself from a monstrous, otherworldly invasion. When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea, a war begins that will take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special weapon is devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, that are piloted by an international crew of soldiers in the Pan Pacific Defense Corps. But even the Jaegers prove nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, two unlikely heroes—a washed-up former pilot and an untested trainee—team up to pilot a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger on a mission to halt the mounting apocalypse.
