Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro and some of the cast members explain a crucial element in the film - the drift.
The giant robots, called Jaegers, are operated by two pilots. Of course, it sound a little ridiculous for one entity to be controlled by two parts, but del Toro came up with an awesome way to make that work by creating a sophisticated computer program. However, nothing is that simple. There are some disadvantages to that method of piloting. Watch the video below to see how the Jaegers and the people who control them are intertwined in a complicated triangle, where one small mistake can be fatal.
Pacific Rim synopsis: 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.
Starring: Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Rinko Kikuchi, and others.
