Guillermo del Toro’s eagerly awaited giant robots vs giant monsters smash-up Pacific Rim has a new featurette, focusing on the designs of the various robots, or Jaegers, that humanity’s last hope pilot to save the world from the otherwordly menace from the deep. We have it for you below the synopsis, along with the previous featurettes. Pacific Rim opens July 12.
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.
