Pacific Rim (2013)

Summary

Pacific Rim is a 2013 American science fiction monster film directed by Guillermo del Toro, and starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Perlman. The screenplay is by Travis Beacham and del Toro, with a story by Beacham.

The film is set in the future, when Earth is at war with the Kaiju, colossal monsters which have emerged from an interdimensional portalon the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. To combat the monsters, humanity unites to create the Jaegers, gigantic humanoid mechas each controlled by at least two pilots, whose minds are joined by a neural bridge. Focusing on the war’s later days, the story follows Raleigh Becket, a washed-up Jaeger pilot called out of retirement and teamed with rookie pilot Mako Mori as part of a last-ditch effort to defeat the Kaiju.

History

Principal photography began on November 14, 2011 in Toronto and lasted through April 2012. The film was produced by Legendary Pictures and distributed by Warner Bros.. It was released on July 12, 2013 including in 3D and IMAX 3D, receiving generally positive reviews; the visual effects, action sequences and the nostalgic style were highly praised. While the film was a box-office disappointment in the United States, it was highly successful in other territories. It earned a worldwide total of more than $411 million—$114 million in China alone, its largest market—becoming Del Toro’s most commercially successful film to date.

A sequel with the working title Pacific Rim: Maelstrom was announced in 2014, and, following delays, is now to be directed by Steven S. DeKnight and produced by Del Toro, for a scheduled release of February 23, 2018.
