blog by Kathryn Przybyla • July 04, 2013 @ 9:00am
Buffalo.com wants you to be the first to see the new modern-day monster movie “Pacific Rim,” officially hitting theaters on July 12.
Today through Friday, we are giving away 20 pairs of advanced screening passes to catch the film at 7 p.m. on Tuesday (July 9) at the Regal Walden Galleria.
Here’s a synopsis from the film:
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 the comments, we will randomly select 20 winners to receive a pair of passes to the advanced screening. Winners will be announced on Friday afternoon (July 5) at 3 p.m. All comments must be submitted before 3 p.m. on Friday to be entered to win.
