PACIFIC RIM Viral Launches As The Countdown To The Trailer Begins

The viral campaign for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim has begun! After the jump, you'll be able to find a memo details Great Britain's plans to find pilots for their "mechanical goliaths" to battle against the mysterious "Kaiju", as well as a video and link to a site with a trailer countdown.

Thanks to Total Film, we have the first part of the Pacific Rim viral campaign. As you can see, the first two parts are pretty standard - a video and letter. However, the website that has been launched leads to a countdown which is presumably leading to the debut of the trailer next month. Check it all out below and be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

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.
