Meet the American Jaeger Out Of Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’

Warners has released yet another Jaeger poster for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, this time depicting a giant “Gypsy Danger” robot out of the U.S.A. The pic is 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.

Prepare for war this July 12.

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.

    All the others seem to have so much character, yet this one seems to be so… bland? Ah well, maybe it’s just because the others are such brilliant designs and this is *meant* to look that way, like in Real Steel?
