Giant Robot & Giant Monster Square Off in These New Posters For Pacific Rim!

Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters, the Guillermo del Toro film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.

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 (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (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.

    2. I have to agree. This has been a pretty epic summer for movies. I can't get enough Pacific Rim news....I've been following the film since before it even had a title! I remember when it was announced that Del Toro was working on At The Mountains of Madness and then it was announced that he was shelving that project in favor of another original piece.....

    4. I do too. I'm a huge Lovecraft fan and I would love to see a big budget adaptation of ATMoM (or any of Lovecrafts stories for that matter!) Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Stuart Gordon's Lovecraft films....but I mean COME ON! Can you imagine Del Toro's Old One's on screen?!?!?!?
