Pictures has released a short featurette for Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim. The featurette discusses the robot concepts for the film. The sci-fi action film is scheduled to open in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 12. It stars Charlie HunnamRon PerlmanIdris ElbaBurn GormanRinko Kikuchi, and Charlie Day. The script was written by Travis Beacham.

Warner Bros. Pictures has summarized the film as followed. 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 and an untested trainee 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.
