Fancy sci-fi movie with giant monster (think about Godzilla) and giant robot (think about transformers)? Your wish will be granted soon (you just have to wait for another 7 more months). In July 2013, Pacific Rim, the highly anticipated sci-fi by Guillermo del Toro will be released internationally. Guillermo del Toro last brought us an visual treats in fantasy-drama, Pan's Labyrinth (2006).
Pacific Rim carries no A-lists casts as the main characters are the monsters and the robots. Short synopsis of Pacific Rim (source: GeekTyrant):
"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."
