Do you want to taste some Kaiju blood? We're waiting to see a follow-up trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim since the first one debuted last December, and while we got a good look at the enormous Kaiju monsters in that footage, there's still more to see. Warner Bros has started teasing even more of the Kaiju with some teaser images that have started to pop up on movie websites this past weekend. Another one has shown up today giving us our first look at some dark blue blood of these destructive creatures that we build gigantic robots to fight off. I'm sure these viral photos are leading somewhere, and I'm intrigued to find out.
Here's the original viral photo, which came from SFX without any message besides the imagery. Take a look:
Here's the next photo with the statement (via BD): "This is as close as you ever want to get to Kaiju blood."
Update! Another new viral photo to add, this time it shows "clean-up detail: an endless, thankless task."
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.
