PRESS RELEASE: Pacific Rim Wondercon Exclusive!
“This was originally intended for only WonderCon,” said del Toro in a statement, “but after listening to so many of you asking for more of the movie online, I think it time for me to show you more footage. Enjoy, my friends!”
The response to the footage at this year's WonderCon was overwhelmingly positive. As Charlie Day‘s character says, it’s “2,500 tons of awesome.”
The main sets are focused on the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness which will be shown on May 15, 2013 which arguably anticipated especially for the media who had a privilege to see the 34 minutes rough cut of the film. If you haven’t seen the new Kre-O Star Trek building toys see more images…
In “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.
Opening across the Philippines in July 11, 2013 in 3D, 2D and regular theaters, “Pacific Rim” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
