Pacific Rim - 'Destroy All Kaijus' Featurette & Two New Movie Posters
Reported by Outsiders - 2013.07.02
Check out another behind-the-scenes look at the real stars of Guillermo del Toro's latest action flick "Pacific Rim," the giant-sized monsters, otherwise known as 'Kaiju' in Japanese. In this latest featurette, Guillermo explains that he wanted to have his monsters to rejuvenate the feel of the classic man-in-suit movies he grew up with. The Kaiju also somewhat resemble real animals like the gorilla-like creature Leatherback that has risen from the depths of the Pacific Ocean to wreak havoc on puny humans.
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.
