Just How Big Are the ‘Pacific Rim’ Monsters? THIS Big.


We live in a time of monsters, teases this new promo image from Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. The still also shares a look at one of the film’s monsters, which really gives perspective as to how large they are.

In theaters 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.

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

    That’s pretty big, I guess. Hoping they were bigger.

    I was thinking the same as Golic. I saw the Pacific Rim and for a second I thought “Man, someone needs to reboot Power Rangers”.

    This is a nice shot – I love the fog effects – gives it an atmospheric and doom-y feeling
