Jaeger Repair Personnel Only: Four New 'Pacific Rim' Viral Posters
For Jaeger Pilots Only. One this summer's other highly buzzed about action movies is Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, featuring giant robots vs giant monsters. Warner Bros has been teasing the sci-fi world del Toro created through viral photos of the Kaiju destruction, now things continue. MovieViral and STYD have found two brand new viral posters, created by the Pan Pacific Defense Corps (the group making the Jaegers) which also has its own website. These are probably better seen actually printed and on display at somewhere like Comic-Con, but nonetheless it's cool to see them as we near the start of the summer season.
Update! Two more Pacific Rim viral posters, with more being revealed daily on the PacRim Facebook page:
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. Warner Bros will release Pacific Rim in theaters in 3D on July 12th. See the full trailer.
