So What's Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM All About? Official Synopsis Revealed!

You guys are going to love what Guillermo del Toro has in store for us! I got the lowdown from a guy (Spydaweb) who is pretty close to the maestro director himself and he says this about the movie: "This isn’t quite what you’re expecting. In a good way."

He also says that we can expect a first reveal at San Diego's Comic-Con, so if you're already booked into attend the show - you're in luck!

We have also already heard unofficially that the movie will be in 3D.

Here's the storyline for PACIFIC RIM:
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure “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”) is directing “Pacific Rim” from a script by Travis Beacham (“Clash of the Titans”). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Idris Elba (“Thor”), Rinko Kikuchi (“The Brothers Bloom”), Charlie Day (“Horrible Bosses”), and Ron Perlman (the “Hellboy” films). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.

Warner Bros. has moved the release date of PACIFIC RIM to July 12, 2013.

Don't you love it?! Two pilots with a neural bridge? Oh yeah - can't wait to see what kind of problems can arise out of that scenario! What do you think of the synopsis?
