With the Comic Con in San Diego nearing, it seems as if the popular trend this year is to bring forth some eye-candy before the Con opens its doors in order to attract more attention to the 4 day event, and director Guillermo del Toro's upcomng monster flick Pacific Rim is no exception to this new marketing scheme.
Stars Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, and Ron Perlman will join del Toro for a special look at the upcoming film at the SDCC on Saturday, July 14th, in Hall H at 2:30 pm.
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 humanity’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 mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse."
Look for Pacific Rim to hit theaters on July 12th of 2013.
Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff star.
