The Pacific Rim Official Synopsis

The next film from Guillermo del Toro

By Robert T. Trate     May 23, 2012
Source: Legendary Pictures

Last year at Comic Con, there was some news about Guillermo del Toro’s next project. Well the official synopsis and cast have been released now. The script for Pacific Rim was written by Travis Beacham (Clash of the Titans), and it stars Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Idris Elba (Thor), Rinko Kikuchi (The Brothers Bloom), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses), and Ron Perlman (Hellboy). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.

Pacific Rim’s Official Synopsis:  “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”.

Expect more word on Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim this July at Comic Con.

 Why do they always rely on the washed up pilots and technology that are relics when all else fails?...that seems to be a popular plot device these days.

 Godzilla meets Gundam.  I'm in geek heaven.

Why does this sound like a SyFy Originals plot?

Wiseguy 5/23/2012 3:00:52 PM

Not as excited for this as I thought I'd be. Still sounds like it may fun.

Also sounds like something adapted from a manga

Not a fan of the plot... but Guillermo hasn't let me down yet.

SarcasticCaveman 5/23/2012 3:49:11 PM

ThrillerSam, just curious...Hellboy: The Golden Army didn't let you down?  I had to turn it off once the singing started.  Ugh.

That said, aside from ONE instance, I agree.  Guillermo is an awesome film maker....still glad he's not doing the Hobbit movies though...LOL.  I'll give this a chance.

i like that toilet seat, caveman

 Thanks, vitieddie...me and my wife bought a house that we're fixing up...doing a Marvel theme in the downstairs bathroom...toilet seat was her idea, actually...I bought a toy of Thor's hammer that we're going to affix to the wall to act as a TP roll, and she got some great fabric made up of vintage comic book covers to do drapes in there...can't wait till it's done.

Charlie Day? From its always sunny in phlidalphia? I wonder if the rest of the gang will be there because that would be funny as hell.

SarcasticCaveman 5/23/2012 5:42:23 PM

 It's Always Sunny in the Pacific Rim...LOL
