The film tells the story of colossal monsters known as Kaiju emerging from a rift in the Pacific Ocean. They threaten humanity’s existence, and to combat these otherworldly creatures, massive robots are built called Jaegers. These behemoths are operated by skilled pilots who connect their minds in a neural bridge called the Drift.

The film’s impact cannot be overstated.

It became a box office hit, bringing in over $400 million worldwide. The franchise gained a devoted fan base that eagerly embraced its rich mythology. Its influence extends beyond the big screen, inspiring an animated graphic novel series, a sequel, “Pacific Rim: Uprising” (2018), and animated Netflix series.
