With this year’s Consumer Electronics Show kicking off in Las Vegas, manufacturers of the world’s finest in entertainment need something to showcase their latest gadgets and what’s better than the loudest, most expensive upcoming summer films? Qualcomm took such advice to heart and during their panel tonight, they showed off a brand new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro‘s monster mash-up Pacific Rim.
While the structure is more or less the same as our first theatrical trailer, this one if complete with new footage, showing off more of our crew, as well as some massive monster vs. robot action. While one is certain to deliver large-scale thrills, I’m still curious to see if has the meat to back it up, story-wise. Check it out below for the film starring Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman and Charlie Day.
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ sci-fi action adventure “Pacific Rim.” 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 and an untested trainee 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 lands on July 12th, 2013.
