New Pacific Rim Stills Show Off the Aftermath of Kaiju Attacks

Legendary Pictures continues to tease their monster-sized summer release, Pacific Rim, with a series of stills showing off the aftermath of deadly Kaiju attacks.

“We will rebuild the city around its bones,” is the caption for the first image.

“Kaiju Blue clean-up detail: an endless, thankless task,” reads the second.

In the film, opening July 12th, legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and begin a war that would takes millions of lives and consumes 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.
