By Paul Romano - 3/26/2013
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.




Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman. The film is set to hit theaters July 12th.

Cherno Alpha? Seriously? How can they think that Russians would name it after a terrible disaster that killed hundreds?
MrYurMomm - 3/26/2013, 10:17 AM
This movie is gonna cause bricks to be shat, I guarantee it.

Oh and @Jollem... In Soviet Russia, Yoda speaks perfect English.

See Hugh Jackman? That is REAL steel.

Hope we get to see the sentinels from DOFP soon.
LordOfTheZegaRealm - 3/26/2013, 10:21 AM
See how Russians do it.
stevebrt - 3/26/2013, 10:24 AM
@DanteSparda would be cool to think of this as being set in the same universe as Real Steel

I'm so glad the art direction in this film is of an insanely higher quality than "Transformers" and their "just make it super complex with tons of tiny bits!" theory of design.

@hayyam "Cherno Alpha? Seriously? How can they think that Russians would name it after a terrible disaster that killed hundreds?" "Cherno" is a Russian short form adjective that means "black".

DanteSparda - 3/26/2013, 11:15 AM

Finland's Jaeger: Drunken Suicider
DanteSparda - 3/26/2013, 12:24 PM
@batesmotel

I'm mexican AND from Guadalajara you psycho.
Nomadic1 - 3/26/2013, 12:25 PM
@Dante Swiss Jaeger: Useless Neutralis
SpideyQuad - 3/26/2013, 1:13 PM
The French Jaeger comes complete with autopilot directing it promptly to the North Pole where it could hide until the fight is over.

The Russians could be memorializing Chernobyl, the bucket head does resemble the tomb they built over the disabled reactors. T

@ Guston - Don't forget his partner...Captain Freedom.

Is the English one called America's bitch?

=D
CavEl - 3/26/2013, 1:18 PM
Canada doesn't have one...they don't have a military. =D

Pussies.
Ramiel - 3/26/2013, 1:24 PM
Will Superion or Devastator make an appearance?
SimyJo - 3/26/2013, 1:27 PM
@JaketheSuperguy;

America's one is built with China's money - and as such it has to put out every night, bend over the Golden Gate bridge and take it up the thermal exhaust-port by the Chinese bot.

=D
batesmotel - 3/26/2013, 1:53 PM
@ DanteSparda. My parents are from there too hermano
CavEl - 3/26/2013, 2:09 PM
@ SimyJo - You English?
SimyJo - 3/26/2013, 2:21 PM
Yes, and I have the bad teeth and repressed sexuality to prove it!.

*wanders off into the thick London smog*

My favorite so far.
TheSuperguy - 3/26/2013, 3:39 PM
So there's one robot for each country?
sephiroth211 - 3/26/2013, 4:54 PM
"So there's one robot for each country?"

Yep, sorta like this.

SimyJo - 3/26/2013, 5:19 PM
Yeah..... Apart from North Korea,

Whos robot looks like shit, is a good 20 years away from working well enough to be of any use - but (according to propaganda) is apparently is soooo badass it can take on every monster at once with one hand behind its back.

Gypsy Danger FTW
RonSwanson - 3/26/2013, 6:51 PM
I must say I do enjoy the bulky, armored quality of Cherno Alpha. It's my favorite Jaeger so far.
RaythBane - 3/26/2013, 6:53 PM
@Hayyam Ever heard of google translate?

Cherno Alpha means Black Alpha

Nothing to do with Chernobyl A$$Hat.
