We are getting our first look at Charlie Hunnam doing his thing (which apparently includes a John Holmes codpiece) in the latest shot from PACIFIC RIM. July 12 of 2013 is more than a year away but I think it’s safe to call this one of the most anticipated films of next year. Guillermo del Toro has the geeks whipped up into a frenzy with this monster pic which follows a squad of robots known as “Jaegers” fighting off monsters called… wait for it… “Kaiju”! The official skinny on the plot is down below the image, have a look at the post-cod write-up.
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.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
