Three Massive New 'Pacific Rim' Blueprint Viral Posters Discovered
Time to meet the Jaegers! After kicking off a rather exciting set of viral images and videos for Guillermo del Toro's monsters vs robots movie Pacific Rim, a few extra goodies have arrived to keep our interests piqued for now. During the reveals yesterday, there was a giant blueprint poster of one of the human-controlled Jaeger robots that we see fighting the giant monsters (seen attacking in this news video) in the movie. A number of websites around the world have been slowly revealing more blueprints of the giant bots one at a time, and now we have three more showing other international Jaegers for us to meet. There's also a tease in the first Russian design about the two-human control system that we'll plenty of in the movie. Take a look!
Here's the full blueprint poster for the Russian Jaeger called Cherno Alpha, found on ComicBookMovie.
Here's another new blueprint for the Jaeger named Striker Eureka. This guy looks like a total badass.
Finally, here's the Japanese Jaegar called Coyote Tango, who also looks pretty mean. Found via Eiga.
Also, just for reference again, here's the first Gipsy Danger Jaeger robot revealed yesterday with the viral.
Those are the latest updates, with that YouTube "Breaking News" video being the most exciting thing to arrive yet. We'll keep an eye out for more updates from the Pan Pacific Defense Corps regarding Pacific Rim.
Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) is directing Pacific Rim from a script by Travis Beacham. The film follows a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi), who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger, a massive robot designed to fight legions of monstrous creatures known as Kaiju, which started rising from the sea years ago. They stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse. The film also stars Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day and Clifton Collins Jr. and Warner Bros. sends the film to theaters everywhere on July 12th, 2013. Stay tuned.
