Pacific Rim - 'Exploring Jaegers' Featurette

Reported by Outsiders - 09:27 PM 2013.06.13





In the newest featurette for Guillermo del Toro's upcoming monster-bash "Pacific Rim," we get another look at the jaw-dropping designs behind the giant mecha warriors, known as Jaegers. In the film, these human-operated machines have been manufactured as Earth's last line of defense after massive creatures suddenly emerges from the Pacific Ocean to wreak havoc on the world's defenseless cities. The clip, embedded above, offers the first peek at the international line-up of Jaeger robots, which includes a Russian Jaeger, a Chinese Jaeger, and an Australian Jaeger (the real stars of the film). And we can't wait to see what del Toro's has in store for a Mexican Jaeger.

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.

Oscar nominee Guillermo del Toro is directing ‘Pacific Rim’ from a script by Travis Beacham. Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day , and Ron Perlman. The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.

Del Toro’s behind-the-scenes team includes Academy Award®-winning director of photography Guillermo Navarro, production designer Andrew Neskoromny, editor Peter Amundson, and costume designer Kate Hawley.

Slated for 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 12, ‘Pacific Rim’ is a presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
