May 3rd, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Director Guillermo del Toro introduces this new trailer for Pacific Rimspecifically cut for Japanese audiences, as he wanted to pay tribute to all of the things from Japan that inspired him to make this movie. There are a few little bits of new footage in the trailer, so enjoy!

“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 and an untested trainee — 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.”

Get ready to cancel the Apocalypse on July 12th!
