Watch & Listen: Tom Morello's 'Pacific Rim' Song & Extended TV Spot
With just over a couple weeks until release, the hype machine for Pacific Rim is wrapping up, and one of the final touches is this extended, 2-minute TV spot with plenty of action. It's getting to the point that if you're not convinced that the new film from Guillermo del Toro is something to be witnessed on the big screen, then it's a lost cause. Plus, for the music fans, the title theme track from the film's soundtrack from composer Ramin Djawadi and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello (the two collaborated on the original Iron Man soundtrack) has just been unveiled, and it's quite an epic orchestral rock track.
Here's the new extended TV spot for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim from Facebook:
And here's the title track from the Pacific Rim soundtrack, via Rolling Stone:
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?
