Opening 7/12: Pacific Rim

Pacific_Rim_FilmPosterIn the near future, giant monsters identified as “Kaiju” have risen from a portal in a crevasse beneath the Pacific Ocean, resulting in a war that takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity’s resources. To combat the monsters, a special type of weapon is designed: massive robots, known as Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But as the war continues, even the Jaegers struggle to win the war against a relentless enemy. Against all odds, the remaining forces of mankind make a final stand.

Pacific Rim is an American science fiction film directed by Guillermo del Toro and written by del Toro and Travis Beacham.

Del Toro intended the film to have an “incredibly airy and light feel”, in contrast to the “super-brooding, super-dark, cynical summer movie”. The director focused on “big, beautiful, sophisticated visuals” and action that would satisfy an adult audience, but has stated his “real hope” is to introduce the kaiju and mecha genres to a generation of children.

The film is produced by Legendary Pictures and will be distributed by Warner Bros. It will be released on 12 July 2013 and will include releases in 3-D and IMAX 3D.
