Warner Bros. has released really cool new posters for Pacific Rim. In the upcoming Guillermo del Toro directed film, Godzilla-sized monsters known as Kaiju rise from the ocean depths and launch an attack on humanity. In response, the Jaeger program is initiated in which military pilots man these just-as-hulking robots to take down the threat.
Pacific Rim which Del Toro co-wrote with Travis Beacham and starring Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day, opens in 3D, IMAX 3D and 2D theatres on July 12th, 2013.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
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.
