Giant robots battle gargantuan marauding aliens for the future of mankind in this awesome sci-fi epic!
The alien invasion of Earth has begun! But it didn't come from space, as we anticipated. Instead, a portal between dimensions opened up beneath the Pacific Ocean. Hordes of enormous monsters known as Kaiju emerged from the depths, claiming millions of lives. Mankind fought back by developing vast 2,500 tonne robots called Jaegers. Each is controlled by two pilots acting in unison by means of a mind meld. But after years of warfare, it seems the relentless Kaiju are gaining the upper hand. Our only hope lies with washed-up former pilot Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and inexperienced trainee Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), piloting an obsolete Jaeger under the command of inspirational General Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba). Legendary 'Hellboy' director Guillermo del Toro's jaw-dropping blockbuster was inspired by Japan's Toho studio - creators of the classic Godzilla movies.
