The monster-bashing continues in wild new Pacific Rim trailer

Pacific Rim - Official Trailer #4 (HD) Guillermo Del Toro

The studio has unleashed a brand-new trailer for Pacific Rim, which digs deeper into the crazy monsters-vs.-mechs world that director Guillermo Del Toro is building.

Framed around Idris Elba’s character’s speech about canceling the apocalypse, the new trailer focuses more on how the Jaeger mechs work and how the world has changed in the wake of the Kaiju attacks. 

Check out the film’s synopsis below:

“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.”

The flick opens in just a few weeks, on July 12.
