Epic sci-fi actioner from Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) centering on a battle for Earth between massive monsters that arise from the Pacific Ocean and human-manned robots, created to defeat them. Stars Idris Elba and Charlie Day.
When legions of creatures, known as Kaiju, rose from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives. To combat the Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: huge, manned robots, called Jaegers. On the verge of defeat, the forces protecting mankind 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. The pair are the world's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Del Toro promised at Comic-Con 2011 that the film will feature “the finest f**king monsters ever committed to screen.”
