Watch PACIFIC RIM Featurettes! Let's Take A Look...

I know what you're asking yourself: "How many trailers and featurettes should I watch without spoiling myself too badly?" And justifiably so. Yes, there are visual spoilers in these and background stories as to how things work which could be deemed 'spoilery'. It is totally your call to watch them or not, but so far I have sat through them and don't feel as though my experience will be lessened by it.

I've been holding off posting these until we get a couple to discuss and now's the time to start. Just amazing stuff! Especially the dual cockpit and how that works. But I won't get into it here - have a watch and then we can discuss if needed in the comments.

Here's the movie's storyline:
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.

PACIFIC RIM opens on July 12. Oh man, I can't wait for this one.
