A poster for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim has surfaced online showing off more than expected. Not only do we get a look at one of the mechs used to fight against the monstrous threat, but we get to see its massive scale with the pilots perched on its shoulder.
We can expect more information on Pacific Rim this Saturday at Comic-Con in Hall H — you can already tell where you’ll find me, right? Right.
What’s that? Your interest is piqued and you want to read the official synopsis too?
“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.”
Pacific Rim is slated for release July 12, 2013.
