We've already seen a couple of 'character posters' for Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM (check out Cherno Alpha's right HERE and Coyote Tango HERE) and today we introduce you to another Jaegar, this one in the form of China's Crimson Typhoon. I'm starting to get a TRANSFORMERS vibe from these designs but I'm sure del Toro will deliver something much more interesting with his giant robots. Check it out 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 will crash into theaters on July 12th.
