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

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."

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?
