No doubt you're just itching for more PACIFIC RIM goodness after the trailer stomped across your brain and left an indelible impression. The wait for the film's July release is simply too damn long, but you just need something from Guillermo del Toro's epic to fill the void, right? Well, today's new look at the trailer should put a big old smile across your face.
MTV sat down with del Toro and watched the trailer along with him, and the master director was able to explain a plethora of the more striking shots in the teaser. It's actually rather informative and serves to make us that much more excited for the monster battle.
Opening on July 12, PACIFIC RIM has the following plot synopsis:
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.
