Pacific Rim Trailer 2, Poster. Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim (2013) movie trailer 2, movie poster stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day, and Clifton Collins Jr. Pacific Rim‘s official plot synopsis: “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.”

On the Pacific Rim trailer and its initial presentation:

Del Toro premiered this trailer at the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Film Festival over the weekend and said the following about the film:

        If I showed you all the money shots [in Pacific Rim], you’d have a 70 minute orgasm.

What I find intriguing and encouraging about this trailer is while there are plenty of those moments, its also shows a real care for this world. Del Toro and screenwriter Travis Beacham have obviously gone deep when it comes to how and why the humans developed the Jaegers as well as conceived them as more than just mindless robots. They’re connected to their pilots. It all points to a film that, we hope, delivers on all levels.
