Yes, We Have Another Pacific Rim Video

Another day, another new video from Pacific Rim…not that we mind as this Guillermo del Toro robots versus monsters film looks like it could be fun. This latest-but-nowhere-close-to-being-the-last-video for the sci-fi action thriller is all about the Jaegers (German for ‘hunter’). The Mech Warriors featurette shows off the 250 foot robots while Guillermo del Toro, who says he was influenced by anime, talks about how he made the robots bigger and badder than what we’ve seen on screen before.
 
The PG-13 thriller hits theaters on July 12, 2013.
 
The Plot:
 
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.
