Pacific Rim is using volunteers to create more buzz

If you haven’t heard about the new science fiction action movie Pacific Rim you must not watch much TV since Legendary is having a media blitz for their summer blockbuster hope.  As part of the theme of the film that the earth is endangered by monstrous creatures that rise out of our own planet they are having a volunteer Beach Clean Up at three beaches in SoCal.  Huntington Beach, Santa Monica Pier and Santa Barbara to bring positive press coverage as well as making our beaches beautiful for the summer months and tourists.  I’m sure that the idea behind the trifecta of ‘doing good’, beach cleanup and fun knew that this will get people talking outside of SoCal since it’s a tourist magnet for people from all over the world.

To promote the July 12th release of Pacific RimGiant Robot and Campus Circle invite you to enter to win a prize pack for Pacific Rim and a gift certificate to Giant Robot.

What is Pacific Rim about?
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. From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.
