Warner Bros. has released a new TV spot for director Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film Pacific Rim. The pic still looks incredible, and this TV spot focuses a bit more on the human characters from the film rather than the fantastic-looking fight sequences between the kaiju (giant creatures that rose up out of the Pacific Ocean) and jaegers (giant robots built and piloted by humans). We see a couple of dialogue scenes between Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba’s characters, and I absolutely cannot wait to see the film in the theater on a giant screen.
Hit the jump to watch the TV spot, and if you missed Matt’s interview with screenwriter Travis Beacham about the film and its tie-in graphic novel, click here. Pacific Rim opens on July 12th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Pacific Rim:
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.
