Watch Now: The Latest ‘Pacific Rim’ Trailer Focuses On The Humans Inside The Mechs

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have unleashed yet another trailer for Guillermo Del Toro‘s apocalyptic action epic Pacific Rim. Since the movie is just a hair over a week from its theatrical release, this has to the final preview left in the studio’s arsenal. Whereas the marketing campaign so far has emphasized the CGI-enhanced spectacle Rim promises to deliver, this latest trailer concentrates on the characters that inhabit the universe created by Del Toro and screenwriter Travis Beacham.

You can watch the trailer here below.

Stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman all make appearances in this trailer. We get a better sense of what is at stake in the story and that it’s not just about giant mechanized men powered by human pilots beating the holy hell out of the kaiju beasties straight out of the filmmaker’s imaginations (though we get to see a bit of that obviously).

Consider me sold. With the exception of Iron Man 3, the summer movie season thus far has been an overhyped bust in my opinion. Guillermo Del Toro knows how to install a soul and beating heart into the typical tentpole blockbuster. I trust him, and I believe in this movie.

Pacific Rim opens on July 12, 2013.
