The final trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim is now online.  With a week to go before its release, Warner Bros. wants one last chance to convince movie goers to lay some cash down on their epic monsters vs. robots film.  The trailer focuses mostly on the pilots behind the Jaegers, the robotic behemoths the humans use for defense.  I was already convinced to go see this film from the first trailer, so seeing this one only confirms that I’m in for one hell of a ride.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman.  Pacific Rim opens in theaters on July 12.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.
