Five New Posters for Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM Features the Jaegers
A handful of new posters for director Guillermo del Toro’s monster epic Pacific Rim have been released. Each of the five posters features one of the gigantic jaegers constructed by their respective countries to defend mankind against the Kaiju. Pacific Rim has been met with very positive reaction from those who claim to have seen special advance screenings, but us less fortunate won’t be able to get our taste until the summer time. The posters feature USA’s “Gypsy Danger,” Japan’s “Coyote Tango,” China’s “Crimson Typhoon,” Russia’s “Cherno Alpha,” and Australia’s “Striker Eureka.” Pacific Rim certainly promises to be a visual spectacle, but can it deliver with substance? Only time will tell. Hit the jump to check out the posters.
Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff and hits theaters in 3D on July 12th, 2013.
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.
