Reel Images | Pacific Rim Redux


Recently, we’ve spotlighted Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim with several posts in the past couple of weeks. The studio has posted a new banner and two new character images, including one of the film’s star, Idris Elba.

The new images include a banner that features a Jaegar made with the app using parts of others along with two new character images showcasing Elba’s PPDC Marshal Stacker Pentecost and Rinko Kikuchi’s Jaeger pilot Mako Mori.

Pacific Rim follows what occurs 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 (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (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.

Pacific Rim also stars Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.

The film opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on July 12.
