About Pacific Rim
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes the sci-fi action adventure "Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim."
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.
Oscar® nominee Guillermo del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth") directed the epic sci-fi action adventure from a script by Travis Beacham ("Clash of the Titans") and del Toro, story by Beacham. Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Guillermo del Toro and Mary Parent produced the film, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.
Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam (TV's "Sons of Anarchy"), Idris Elba ("Thor"), Rinko Kikuchi ("Babel"), Charlie Day ("Horrible Bosses"), Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, and Ron Perlman (the "Hellboy" films).
Del Toro's behind-the-scenes team included Academy Award®-winning director of photography Guillermo Navarro ("Pan's Labyrinth"), production designers Andrew Neskoromny and Carol Spier, editors Peter Amundson and John Gilroy, and costume designer Kate Hawley. The music is composed by Ramin Djawadi. The visual effects supervisors were John Knoll and James E. Price, and Hal Hickel was the animation supervisor.
