So far this week we have seen stand alone ‘character’ posters for a collection of giant Jaegar robots from Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. The giant robots are controlled and driven by a team of highly trained soldiers, and each day this week saw the release of a new poster.
We have seen Japan’s Coyote Tango, Russia’s Cherno Alpha and China’s Crimson Typhoon. Yesterday the collection of five separate posters was completed as the revealing of Australia’s Striker Eureka and the USA’s Gipsy Danger made their way on-line. You can see the full collection of posters below.
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
