Warner Bros. Pictures is kicking the San Diego Comic-Con off early releasing the first ever teaser poster for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, his giant monsters/alien vs robots action flick opening in theaters July 12, 2013. The below one-sheet shares a first-ever look at one of the film’s robots, also known as Jaegers, used to battle the Kaiju (monsters). On its shoulder stands two stars so tiny they’re unidentifiable.

Set in a future in which malevolent creatures threaten the earth, the planet must band together and use highly advanced technology to eradicate the growing menace.

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.

Charlie Day, Idris Elba, Robert Kazinsky, Ron Perlman, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, Brad William Henke also star.

    this looks promising. It’s been a while since Del Torro made a film. I am looking foward actually to see sci-fi destruction. I just hope that the studio is not going to follow the transformers route :P

    This is going to be massive, those robots are huge. I didn’t think they were going to be nowhere near that big. LOL I thought like robot like robocop LOL. Can’t wait to see some pics of the monsters now. Jeez they are going to look crazy. I am hoping for a huge epic film and I hope this’ll be in IMAX too. This needs to be at least 2hrs 45mins and really needs to be in IMAX
