By Josh Wilding - 8/30/2012











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 and an untested trainee — 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.


STARRING:

Charlie Hunnam as Raleigh Antrobus
Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori
Idris Elba as General Stacker Pentecost
Charlie Day as Newt Gotlieb
Ron Perlman as Hannibal Chow
Clifton Collins Jr. as Tendo Choi
Max Martini as Herc Hansen
Robert Kazinsky as Yancy Antrobus

RELEASE DATE: July 12th, 2013

The concept is very simple, almost basic- like television material, but something about it has me very, very excited.
