Someone (Marketsaw) got the plot details to del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM, someone else (me) shit their pants at the ungodly amount of cool that is about to be unleashed on audiences in a year or so. Check this out and then slap your mama.
“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.”
Jesus tits, I think I just made my underwear pregnant.
The film stars Charlie Hunnam and (del Toro pal) Ron Perlman (from SON’S OF ANARCHY), Idris Elba (THOR), Rinko Kikuchi (THE BROTHERS BLOOM), and Charlie Day (ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILIDELPHIA).
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
