Check out two new and very cool posters for Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi monster mash “Pacific Rim”, which features a Russian and Japanese Jaegar (the movie’s word for their giant, towering, human-controlled mechs). The Japanese one is very cool, but then again, giant robots with shoulder-mounted guns are my thang. Not my thing, but my thang. You know?
Anyhoo. Check out the posters, folks who enjoy checking out posters on the ‘net.
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.
Starring Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Max Martini, Robert Maillet, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, Heather Doerksen, and Larry Joe Campbell.
