‘Pacific Rim’ Poster: Creating Monsters to Fight Monsters
You’ll be forgiven if you’re still reeling from last night’s trailer debut of ‘Pacific Rim,’ which we think we can objectively say looks utterly fantastic. If Guillermo del Toro’s monsters vs. robots epic wasn’t already near the top of your 2013 “must see” list, it surely is now.
The hits keep on coming from the sci-fi epic, as today we’ve clutched on to the new ‘Pacific Rim’ poster, which debuted along with the trailer on Apple. Head beyond the break to see it in full.
The new ‘Pacific Rim’ poster chooses to highlight the “jaeger” element of the film, meaning the giant robots created to combat the hellish creatures from another dimension that put a hurting on our planet. The tagline featured in the trailer is also prominent here: “To Fight Monsters, We Created Monsters,’ which is still giving us chills.
For those who are in the dark about the film, this is a tantalizing tease: “What monsters?” they may ask, while the rest of us simply smile knowingly and dreamily. Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba are part of an elite team of pilots who command these robot monoliths as humanity’s only defense against these giant creatures known as “kaiju.”
‘Pacific Rim’s’ release (which has never seemed so far away) is set for July 12, 2013, but until then, check out the latest poster below.
