One of Renegade Cinema’s most anticipated movies of 2013 is Pacific Rim, Guillermo Del Toro’s awesome looking giant robots vs monsters epic. With Son’s of Anarchy stars Ron Perlman and Charlie Hunnam stepping into the lead roles, how can this be anything but awesome.
While we are waiting for someone to finally green light the third movie in Del Toro and Perlman’s Hellboy series, I’m more than content to let Pacific Rim pass the time. These new images released by Total Film make me even more excited about the movie. This is some great concept art, and I have no doubt that Del Toro can knock one out of the park with this new movie.
Pacific Rim opens on July 12, 2013.
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.
