PACIFIC RIM is one film CineMovie is excited to see in 3D when it opens July 12 and the wait is killing us. These new movie posters and banners from Guillermo Del Toro's sci-fi action adventure certainly wets our appetite even more.The PG-13 film is Godzilla meets Transformers, but we're sure Del Toro will add a lot more story and meat that those recent films lacked. And of course, no sexy big-lipped model turned actress in this one Michael Bay. Check out the key players in this must-see summer movie including one kick-ass lady manning those giant robots.
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.
PACIFIC RIM opens in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on July 12.
