We've seen plenty of PACIFIC RIM trailers in the past, but here's the mother of them all: the official, full 2:30 version, hot off the presses. We assume this one will be tacked onto all prints of STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS this weekend, so by the end of the weekend, most of the world should be pretty familiar with PACIFIC RIM.
In case you need a plot refresher:
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.
PACIFIC RIM opens on July 12th. Watch the new trailer right here:
