New PACIFIC RIM Still; Name Of The "First Kaiju" Revealed
The official Pacific Rim Facebook page has posted a new still of the corpse of a Kaiju. It's an image we've already seen in the first trailer for the movie, but here we learn that the creature was the first to appear, and he has a name!..
The Facebook page posted the above pic along with the following:
"The infamous first Kaiju, Trespasser, slaughtered hundreds of thousands."
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 will be released on July 12, 2013.
