Pacific Rim is a film that was clearly designed to give us all nerdgasms.  It features giant robots vs giant monsters.  An easy sell to us geeks if there ever was one.  Warner Bros. showed off some footage at WonderCon along with a new trailer.  For those that couldn’t get to attend (like myself), Warners Bros. as deemed it fit to post the trailer online for our viewing pleasure.  And what an awesome trailer it is.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Clifton Collins Jr., Idris Elba, and Ron PerlmanPacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Pacific Rim:

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.
