Pacific Rim Drift Space Featurette

When we caught up with Guillermo del Toro at NY Comic Con last October, he explained how the massive Jaeger robots required two pilots to handle the load and even hinted we'd see what would happen when only one pilot was left to take on the task single-handedly. In this new Pacific Rim Fearturette, we explore the relationship between man and robot and more importantly, how two human beings become one pilot.

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.

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes "Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures' Pacific Rim." In theaters July 12th.
