From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Picturesâ€™ and Legendary Picturesâ€™ epic sci-fi action adventure "Pacific Rim."
In the film, "When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanityâ€™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 (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankindâ€™s last hope against the mounting apocalypse."
OscarÂ® nominee Guillermo del Toro (â€śPanâ€™s Labyrinthâ€ť) is directing the film from a script by Travis Beacham (â€śClash of the Titansâ€ť). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.
The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TVâ€™s â€śSons of Anarchyâ€ť), Idris Elba (â€śThorâ€ť), Rinko Kikuchi (â€śThe Brothers Bloomâ€ť), Charlie Day (â€śHorrible Bossesâ€ť), and Ron Perlman (the â€śHellboyâ€ť films). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.
