Studios need to get a handle on the trailer naming situation for movies. Just number these GDMF’ers. This is the main trailer for Pacific Rim, from Guillermo del Toro, and it features plenty of new action and story.
The main trailer for Pacific Rim gives a better explanation of what the hell is going on in the movie. That’s good because when I watched the WonderCon footage all I could really put together was “man/robot versus alien.” I even went so far as to compare it to the Power Rangers, which I’m sure is not a connection that they want to have.
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.
