VIDEO: CES "Pacific Rim" Trailer Offers New Look at Hollywood's Mecha Blockbuster

Qualcomm presents special trailer at Computer Electronics Show

Qualcomm has put together a special treat for the Computer Electronics Show (CES) running in Las Vegas this week. The Qualcomm Born Mobile keynote address by Paul Jacobs is presenting a special trailer for next summer's mecha versus kaiju Hollywood blockbuster, Pacific Rim trailer with an introduction from director Guillermo del Toro. 

 

 

 

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume 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.
