Watch: Awesome Con Footage from del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' Online
Go big or go extinct! For those who weren't lucky enough to attend either WonderCon or CinemaCon this year, Warner Bros has decided to unleash the sizzle reel of footage from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim seen at both of those Cons to the general public. A lot of the footage we've seen in trailers before, a lot we haven't, but this also gives us the insanely awesome shot of a Jaeger hitting a Kaiju with a freakin' boat. Charlie Day makes an appearance along with Idris Elba and Ron Perlman, plus the two leads Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi. This looks so so so awesome, it's going to be a hell of a summer of movies!
Here's the WonderCon/CinemaCon footage for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, uploaded to YouTube:
Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) is directing Pacific Rim from a script by Travis Beacham. The film follows a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi), who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger, a massive robot designed to fight legions of monstrous creatures known as Kaiju, which started rising from the sea years ago. They stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse. The film also stars Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day and Clifton Collins Jr. Warner Bros will release Pacific Rim in theaters in 3D on July 12th. See the full trailer.
