Directed by
Guillermo Del Toro

It's robots versus aliens in a supersized sci-fi action blockbuster from the director of Hellboy.

For many years, humans have been fighting a desperate battle against gargantuan monsters - Kaiju - that emerge from a crevasse beneath the Pacific Ocean and annihilate everything on the surface. Holding them back (just) are the Jaegers - massive tooled-up robots manned by specialist pilots. But with the Kaiji adapting to everything the Jaegers can throw at them, and humanity facing complete alien takeover, the top brass are thinking about pulling the plug.

Step up Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), a hard-as-nails old-school soldier with a hunch about two recruits: washed-up former pilot Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and untested newbie Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi). With a cry of "today we are cancelling the apocalypse!" Pentecost sends his Jaegers out for one final blazing showdown that will end the Kaiju reign of terror forever - or spell the end of the human race.

From offbeat director Guillermo Del Toro comes a supersized action mash-up of Transformers and Godzilla that delivers a sensory walloping over two hours of relentless bot wars. Envisioning a film of "epic beauty" that would celebrate the massive-monster genre started by legends such as Ray Harryhausen and Ishiro Honda, Del Toro has created a visually magnificent blockbuster that, in one directorial masterstroke, has moved him straight into the mainstream.
