'Pacific Rim' Robot Blueprints & Viral Videos Released

Pacific Rim

If you haven't heard anything about Guillermo del Toro's alien invasion flick Pacific Rim, you will soon. Warner Bros. is currently producing a media blitz by releasing viral videos and blueprints of the giant robots that will appear in the movie. Check out the videos and blueprints below.

For those who don't know anything about the movie, 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.

As you can see, the story itself sounds like something from a Japanese anime except it's live-action with way better production value.

The movie stars Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam, Clifton Collins Jr., Idris Elba, Max Martini, Rinko Kikuchi, and Ron Perlman and is coming to theaters on July 12, 2013.
