Eight new images have made their way on-line from Guillermo del Toro’s highly anticipated sci-fi epic, Pacific Rim. The images come courtesy of USA Today, and you can view them all in our image gallery below. Most if the images are from the trailers we have already seen, but one or two are brand new, so enjoy!
Pacific Rim had a test screening a few days ago in Burbank, California, and the buzz surrounding it has grown even stronger. Those who have seen it have been posting their thoughts to Twitter etc to praise the film. One such person was Looper and Brick director Rian Johnson, who tweeted the following:
Go into Pacific Rim prepared to be transmogrified into a 12 year old. And then to pee your pants with joy. I love it so much.

Directed by Guillermo del Toro and written by Travis Beacham, Pacific Rim stars Idris Elba (Prometheus), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Charlie Hunnam (Horrible Bosses), Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr, Rinko Kikuchi and Robert Maillet.
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.
Release Date 12th July 2013
