Guillermo Del Toro builds anticipation for "Pacific Rim" with the release of three new videos, including a new trailer, a featurette and a viral video. In the fourth trailer for the action-heavy film, Charlie Hunnam takes center stage. His character Raleigh Becket is featured in most parts of the video, which, of course, still includes epic battle scenes between Jaegers and Kaijus.
The featurette and the viral video, meanwhile, offer interesting tidbits about Kaijus. In the first one, Del Toro and cast members Idris Elba and Rinko Kikuchi talk about the meaning of the word "Kaiju" and the making of the creatures. As for the latter, it features Ron Perlman as a black market Kaiju organ dealer, who gives details of health benefits of the monster organs.
"Pacific Rim" centers on washed up former pilot Raleigh Antrobus and an untested trainee called Mako Mori. Together, they drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.
They stand as mankind's last hope when legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and aim to take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end.
Also supported by Charlie Day, "Pacific Rim" is slated to open in the U.S. on July 12.
