‘Pacific Rim’ Trailer: Idris Elba Saves The World

Idris Elba stars in 'Pacific Rim' Trailer

The trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim was released today and there’s a lot of water and noise involved. The pic follows the epic battle of Sea Monsters versus humans in giant machines. The official synopsis reads:

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.

Pacific Rim is scheduled to hit theaters July 12, 2013.
