'Pacific Rim' Gets a Cool Jaeger Featurette and Heroic New Banner
Though Guillermo del Toro's giant-sized, sci-fi action flick Pacific Rim doesn't hit theaters until July, there's plenty of hype going around, mostly because it seems like audiences still need to made aware of the film. There's exposition in the trailers to set up the reason we have giant robots fighting humongous monsters, and then the action speaks for itself. Now a new featurette dives inside the Jaeger robots controlled by two human pilots, and it's a pretty cool little video. Plus there's a cool new banner features Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi standing with their massive robot counterparts. Look!
Here's the newest Jaeger featurette for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, originally from Yahoo:
And here's the heroic Pacific Rim banner featuring three of the robots, debuted in high def on Twitter:
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?

Looks hokey. Gimmicky. Still not buying why it takes 2 pilots.

It just does for this movie. Are you not buying why because no other movie has used 2 pilots before? This is called "originality".

or why they can't operate it remotely? But then they'd have no story and no film 😉

Teal and orange: the official colors of Hollywood movie posters (and many films).
