Just yesterday we got a look at Coyote Tango, a "Giant Japanese Techno-Tyrant", and now Warner Bros. wasted no time in unveiling their next poster for Russia's Cherno Alpha. By now I know we are all pumped to see what Guillermo del Toro does with a premise that involves giant monsters and giant robots so I'll just leave you alone so you can check out the new poster!
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 will crash into theaters on July 12th.
