Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam leads the cast of the sci-fi action thriller, Pacific Rim, now playing in theaters. And in this interview courtesy of Warner Bros Pictures, Charlie discusses his character and how the pilot he plays ‘drifts’ his mind to connect with his co-pilot. He also talks about working with writer/director Guillermo del Toro, the story, and his admiration for co-star Rinko Kikuchi.
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.
