Hot d*mn. Warner Bros. is really going for it this week in regards to pimping the Guillermo del Toro-directed Pacific Rim, and I can’t blame them. Massive movie. This poster, described as the “main” one, is more of the same but still pretty cool regardless.
“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.“
Here’s 5 things we learned from the trailer, head inside for the poster. Pacific Rim hits July 12th.
