The robots are called Jaegers, and this new featurette explains their inception and features director Guillermo del Toro talking at great length about how they were designed and just how important the science behind the robots turned out to be. Cast members like Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba also detail the different Jaegers across the world with great new footage. Watch!
Here's the new featurette for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, in high def from Apple:
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. Are you ready?
