This official synopsis for Pacific Rim doesn't mind blowing you away with its awesomeness

05.24.2012

Pacific Rim better banner

Hints and hopes for the plot of Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM have been floated around for over a year now, but never with any sort of significant flesh on their bones.  Until now. Until I have no words that compare with this awesomeness:

"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."

Guillermo del Toro looking up

Because f*** yeah.  I really don't have a single thing to say except "stop teasing me with all this waiting bullshit, del Toro! I want it now! RIGHT NOW!"

Besides the aforementioned Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kinkuchi, PACIFIC RIM also stars Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Ron Perlman, Rob Kazinsky, and maybe Willem Dafoe.

You can marvel at all of the monstrous mayhem for yourself on July 12th, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: 3D has been rumored for PACIFIC RIM - even with it being del Toro and all I still am not really inclined to catch a 3D showing, but what about you?

Tidbit: 3D sucks, moving on.

What makes that plot synopsis so awesome though is that it is in the hands of a brilliant director. You know Del Toro can deliver on every single word of that synopsis.

Agree. It's not like the plot is something to behold, but is Del Toro we're talking about and we all know the man delivers.

this sounds ALOT like Neon Genesis Evangelion. If he can make this cool, though, it might open doors for well done anime-style films. Maybe. At least that would give Hollyweird some "new" material to bleed to death.

Agree with violentbuddha...

From the very beginning when I started hearing about massive robots battling monsters, I was only hoping it to be like NEON GENESIS EVANGELION....And now with this synopsis, I think its purposefully (or maybe unpurposefully) going with the NGE root, having pilots as the main hero to boot. Which is totally awesome! If anyone can make a liveaction NGE type badass fantasy action movie its Del Toro. And I really hope they not only capture the action part perfectly, but the philosophical debate, the

Which is totally awesome! If anyone can make a liveaction NGE type badass fantasy action movie its Del Toro. And I really hope they not only capture the action part perfectly, but the philosophical debate, the psychological pressure of the pilots would also come to play in the movie...Given that its helmed by GDT, I definitely know it won't be another Transformers with monsters!

P.S. Anyone into Anime but didn't watch Neon Genesis, I'm requesting them to give a shot. Its MINDBLOWING.

The plot sounds by-the-numbers, but I can't wait to see a trailer because del Toro has never let me down. As for the tidbit, I'm not gonna race and see it in 3D. The only movies I like in 3D are gimmicky horror movies (Piranha, My Bloody Valentine), however I will see Prometheus in 3D because it was shot natively and it was done by a brilliant director whose vision I trust.

Reminds me of every mech-anime i've ever seen... but it is Del Toro and he would be one of the few who could pay proper homage to that genre

Whoa.

This is going to be huge. I will not be seeing this in 3D either. Mainly, because I only have one eye that works! *Maniacal laugh*?

Vamos Del Toro, that's too long to wait. At least give us some glimpses of the concepts!

Robot Jox sucked, this should be way better, this actually sounds more like Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla!

Standing in the shoulder of a giant?

It screams Neon Genesis Evangelion. Like too much. Should have made the live action adaptation the world has been waiting for instead. Not sold until I watch a trailer that convinces me this is not a disguised and toned down copy of that anime.

That's it?

That sounds lame just from that small bit of info. I like Guillermo del Toro don't get me wrong but I have to give it a solid ''meh''

Are the pilots "Jaeger-maestros"?

Sounds like Robot Jox. That was fucking badass. I hope it doesn't turn out like Hugh Jackman's robot-pilot opus.
I don't know what to think yet. Sort of an "underdog saves the world" kinda thing, right? Might be fun. Or not.
The pilots should take a shot of Jaeger before driving. Would make the movie interesting, if not just for the college drinkers watching it. ;)
