Pacific Rim (film)

Pacific Rim is a 2013 American science fiction action film directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Perlman. The screenplay was written by Travis Beacham and del Toro from a story by Beacham. The film is set in the future, when Earth is at war with the Kaiju, colossal sea monsters which have emerged from an interdimensional portal on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. To combat the monsters, humanity unites to create the Jaegers, gigantic humanoid mechas, each controlled by at least two pilots, whose minds are joined by a mental link. Focusing on the war's later days, the story follows Raleigh Becket, a washed-up Jaeger pilot called out of retirement and teamed with rookie pilot Mako Mori as part of a last-ditch effort to defeat the Kaiju.

Travis Beacham, the man behind this story of massive monsters. He is the author of this story, and this is his tumblr. He often answers fan questions, and "re-blogs" any fan-art for the movie. His blog is a wealth of cool stuff for this film.

Pacific Rim is a 2013 original film, directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, and Rinko Kikuchi. A war has broken out between humanity and monsters called "Kaiju". In response to the Kaiju attack, humanity has created their own monster, Jaegers; robotic goliaths that require two pilots. The film, with it's spectacular animation and ensemble cast, manages to create likable characters with interesting back stories in 2 hours and 11 minutes, all while immersing you in an action packed world filled with all the robot on alien violence you didn't even know you wanted.
