Earlier today, we posted a new viral video from the world of Pacific Rim that features Ron Perlman’s Hannibal Chau advertising his black market Kaiju organ business. Now, it seems that he’s sent us along a special delivery! A silver briefcase showed up in the mail with “samples” of Chau’s products along with new artwork to promote the July 12 release.
Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters, the Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures release also stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, 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.
