Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film Pacific Rim will pit monsters versus robots in a way unlike anything we’ve seen before and the entire world will be getting in on the action. With events as global as the film appears to have, it makes sense for the world to remember those moments afterward. The official Twitter account for Pacific Rim posted this picture of what appears to be a museum exhibit featuring a Kaiju’s skull. They captioned the image with this: “What once evoked fear now inspires awe.” Check it out below.
Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on July 12, Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.
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 (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (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.
