'Pacific Rim' WonderCon Trailer

Guillermo del Toro releases the highly praised footage previously intended only for audience members in Anaheim this March.
Director Guillermo del Toro has decided to release the much-hyped Pacific Rim footage from WonderCon 2013, which was originally only intended to be viewed by audience members in Anaheim this past March. Watch as giant Jaegers tear into giant earth-destorying Kaiju monsters, using an aircraft carrier as a baseball bat, then read on for the official statement from Guillermo del Toro himself.


"This was originally intended for only WonderCon, but after listening to so many of you asking for more of the movie online, I think it's time for me to show you more footage. Enjoy, my friends!

- Guillermo del Toro"


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.

This film has been rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief language.

Pacific Rim was released July 12th, 2013 and stars Charlie Hunnam, Diego Klattenhoff, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky. The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro.

    @cartman they may set it up in the story that the creatures are nockturnal. I kind of like the night battles, in the way I prefered the night battles in Terminator as apposed to McG's Road Warrior daytime battles. The nightime lends to the mood and creepiness of what's lurking below. I have been jonesin' about this since day one, just like I have been since the first word of the Robocop remake. Glad to see everyone's aboard now.

  13. Replicant

    Yeah, this is looking great, much more excited now.

    Only thing I'm not feeling are the robot designs, specially that one with a fan on his chest... they just all look too toyish. The suits and the monsters look great though, so does the overall look of the movie!

    So much better than the first trailer. This one lifts my spirits and again makes me believe that Pacific Rim won't be a bomb. Also it's good to see Ron Perlman. You can't have a Del Toro film without him.
