Monsters and robots go head to head when the action-packed spectacle Pacific Rim is released on DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray on 11th November 2013, courtesy of Warner Home Video.
Directed by Oscar® nominee (Best Writing, Original Screenplay, Pan's Labyrinth, 2006) Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim follows a team of unlikely fighters who unite for a final attempt to save humanity from terrifying monsters that emerged from the sea. The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV's Sons of Anarchy), Idris Elba (Thor), Rinko Kikuchi (Babel) and Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses), along with Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins Jr., Burn Gorman and Rob Perlman.
In Pacific Rim, legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, have started rising from the sea, beginning a war that takes millions of lives and consumes humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.
On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) - who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
