The marketing campaign has been a busy one for Pacific Rim and now they have released a new banner and what they’re calling the “main” poster for the movie. I’m already beyond excited for the film (if you haven’t watched the new trailer, check it out here) and these posters just add to the excitement. Pacific Rim is directed by Guillermo Del Toro and stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Rinko Kikuchi. It hits theaters July 12.
PLOT: 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.
