"Pacific Rim" (movie) is a sci-fi action adventure film from acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. 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 synched via a neural bridge, called "The Drift." But as the enemy grows more powerful with each attack, 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 seemingly obsolete Jaeger. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

The cast includes Charlie Hunnam ("Sons of Anarchy"), Idris Elba ("Thor"), Oscar nominee Rinko Kikuchi ("Babel"), Charlie Day ("Horrible Bosses"), Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, and Ron Perlman (the "Hellboy" films).
