Opening in theatres this Friday from director Guillermo del Toro, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures comes the technological battle of PACIFIC RIM.
This film tells the story of Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam), part of a two man crew with his brother in a Jaeger. What is a Jaeger? It is a man made robot of massive size created to fight alien creatures called Kaiju. Entering through a portal they try to destroy mankind.
That’s where the Jaeger’s come into play. Under the command of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) the Kaiju get smarter and destroy more Jaeger than they can build. Pentecost takes it upon himself to continue the fight with the man made machines when the government offers no more support.
He gathers the last of the Jaeger fighters with Herc Hansen (Max Martini) and his son Chuck (Robert Kazinsky), a Russian couple and a trio of fighters. Convincing Becket to rejoin the group he is paired with Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) against the better wishes of Pentecost.
