The international TV spot for the sci-fi action flick Pacific Rim has been released online.
The clip from director Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming big-budget summer movie doesn’t deviate too far from what prospective moviegoers have seen in the past. However, there’s just enough robot-on-monster action to give fans a quick adrenaline rush ahead of the film’s release.
Warner Bros. Pictures is looking to release del Toro’s Pacific Rim into theaters this July. The film is being dropped into what’s shaping up to be a very busy movie season. Action and superhero movie fanatics will have plenty to choose from in the coming months.
The studio is banking on the movie being a huge hit when it finally arrives in theaters. Warner Bros. has embarked on a very extensive marketing campaign in order to get folks excited about the flick’s pending arrival. In addition to a slew of cryptic images, the studio has also unveiled a number of posters featuring the movie’s robots.
Here’s how Warner Bros. describes 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 (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.”
The movie also stars Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke, and Diego Klattenhoff.
Warner Bros. will release Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim into theaters across the country on July 12. Are you planning to catch the movie in theaters?
