Yesterday we had our minds blown by the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM. In fact, we're still reeling over here. In addition to the preview, we caught a look at the sci-fi epic's teaser poster, which displays one of the story's "jaegers" getting a final tune-up before heading into battle with the "kaiju". (You can see it below the trailer.)
Today we've gotten our hands on an international one-sheet for del Toro's film, which you can see below. Here we see a jaeger looking not so tip-top; our friend has apparently just gotten his metal ass handed to him. (In fact this image can be seen briefly in the trailer.) Not to worry, though: I'm sure there are more where he came from.
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 opens on July 12th.
