Two new posters have been released for two of the years biggest films, and both are in the sci-fi genre. First up we have a brand new, and totally awesome banner for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim (above and below). This is the first artwork to properly show one of the giant Kaiju monsters: ready to square off against one of humanity’s Jaegar robots, no doubt this will be a fight of truly epic proportions!
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

Star Trek Into Darkness:
Next up we have a brand new, and quite menacing new poster for JJ Abram’s Star Trek Into Darkness. If you have seen the latest trailer, then you will have seen this scene already. It features the USS Enterprise under attack from a huge ship called USS Vengeance, the same ship which is waiting for the Enterprise in a trap designed by the films villain, John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch). Check out the poster below, and I am sure you’ll agree that that attacking ship is bloody huge!
