Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ poster shows a giant robot apocalypse
The Comic-Con poster for next year’s biggest scifi action flick is truly gigantic.
One of the biggest ovies of next year that no one is talking about yet is Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ and it does look like it’ll be a grand affair, if this new poster is any indication.
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.
Yep, that’s right. You thought ‘Transformers’ had giant robots? Look at the placement of those puny humans on the size of those robots.
The movie opens July 12, 2013.
