Giant monsters attacking your civilization? Well I guess the only solution to that problem would be to fight back with giant robots. Naturally. The wonderful Guillermo Del Toro is back in the director's chair with this epic 'get the F off our planet, we have giant robots' tale, titled, "Pacific Rim"
A viral campaign for Guillermo Del Toro's newest film has been thrown online and is ready for your viewing pleasure! The video shows the Kaiju Emergency Alert system. The Kaiju are the monsters in this film by the way, and a leaked documentary of a discussion of the "Jaeger Inititive." Jaeger, being the massive robots.
Honestly, I can't see this movie being anything but epic at this point. Not only is Del Toro ridiculously imaginative and bold with his type of directing, he's got an all-star cast consisting of Idris Elba, Ron Pearlman, Charly Day, and Charlie Hunnam.
Be sure to catch this flick July 12, 2013!
