Giant robots versus giant aliens, sounds like the makings of classic B Movie but Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ looks like a Hollywood blockbuster! ‘Pacific Rim’ is set in a world where soldiers controlling giant robots battle against giant monsters who have risen from beneath the ocean via a portal. The film will is a homage to Japanese giant monster films, known as Kaiju worldwide, so no doubt there will be some references to the likes of ‘Godzilla’. Nice to see Charlie Hunnam as the lead in this film, he has become a really strong actor since landing the main part in tv series ‘Sons of Anarchy’, his ‘SOA’ co-star Ron Perlman will be by his side in ‘Pacific Rim’ as well.


‘Pacific Rim’ will be in cinemas July 12th 2013.
