PACIFIC RIM continues its marketing blitz as it barrels towards its release date of July 12th, and the latest piece of promotional art for the film may be the coolest yet. (Well, it's up there anyway.)
Below you'll find a new one-sheet, from artist Sergio Grisanti, which is part of the IMAX FANFIX series. Evidently, one of these will be handed out to everyone who attends an IMAX showing of PACIFIC RIM. We're in!
Guillermo del Toro passed along these words to Total Film regarding the poster:
I am thrilled to introduce Sergio Grisanti to the world. For years he has been a highly respected commercial artist. When I was first exposed to his art for Pacific Rim I knew instantly that he was a powerhouse of talent. He created the Jaeger posters/card art we used at Wondercon. Without any hesitation I asked him to create this new IMAX FANFIX art. Look at it closely - with a magnifying glass! So much going on! Such power! Such beauty! Sergio loves his Kaijus and his Mecha, and it shows. The poster, like my film, is a tribute to well-loved things. I wish all the fans the best time at the first IMAX screenings of Pacific Rim. Enjoy!”
I can't believe there were no expletives in that paragraph!
PACIFIC RIM opens on July 12th.
