From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes the action-packed, thrilling film Pacific Rim, which he directed and co-wrote the screenplay with Travis Beacham. It stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day, along with Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins Jr., Burn Gorman and Ron Perlman.
Legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, have started rising from the sea and threaten to destroy humanity. To save Earth, a war has begun that takes millions of lives and consumes humanity’s resources for years. In a last ditch effort to combat the colossal Kaiju, massive robots called Jaegers are devised; each humanoid mecha is controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are joined by a neural bridge. However the relentless Kaiju prove to be even too much for the Jaegers to handle. On the verge of complete defeat, the world’s last hope lies in the hands of Raleigh Becket -- a washed-up former Jaeger pilot whose co-pilot brother was killed by a Kaiju while they were still connected -- and an untested yet eager rookie pilot, Mako Mori. Teamed up to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past, will they be able to win against all odds and save mankind from the apocalypse?
DVD and Blu-ray bonus features include audio commentary by Guillermo del Toro, deleted scenes, a blooper reel, focus points, and featurettes: “Drift Space,” “The Digital Artistry of Pacific Rim” and “The Shatterdome.” Additionally, there are a plethora of featurettes that provide in-depth looks at Kaijus, Jaegers, sets, stunts, sounds, effects, and the mythology and making of the film. Exclusive to Blu-ray is “The Directors Notebook” featurette.
