Guillermo Del Toro Pacific Rim sure has some giant fighting robots. The poster reveals the robots may be the biggest I have seen in a while and very well may be the largest in non-anime movies. They make the transformers look like play things. The giant robots, Jaegers, were created to fight the Kaiju, monstrous creatures from the sea.
The Jaegers in Pacific Rim are controlled by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. The Jaegers are however almost overwhelmed by the almost endless Kaiju. The last hope now comes in the form of a legendary Jaeger from the past. The old and seemingly obsolete Jaeger must be piloted by two unlikely heroes. Washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested new trainee (Rinko Kikuchi).
Are they enough to battle the swarm of monstrous creatures plaguing mankind?

Official Synopsis: When 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.
