It's been a heavy promotional week for Guillermo del Toro's upcoming PACIFIC RIM as the studio has been rolling out kickass posters highlighting the films heavy machinery, the Jaegars. We've already seen Japan's Coyote Tango, Russia's Cherno Alpha and China's Crimson Typhoon get introduction one-sheets, and today we have Australia's Striker Eureka in the spotlight. Peep this badboy below!
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 stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman and Clifton Collins, Jr. It stomps into theaters July 12.
