You most likely don't need to be sold any further on Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM... but here's that little added boost in case you need it. A new featurette on the film, courtesy of Yahoo, that takes us inside the Jaegers, the giant mechanical robots built to withstand the Kaiju invasion. As always, del Toro is descriptive and enthusiastic in talking about his creation, so watch the video below and enjoy!
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanityís 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 mankindís last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Robert Kazinsky, Ron Perlman, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff and Brad William Henke all star in PACIFIC RIM, which opens on July 12th.
