Check Out a Couple Awesome Pieces of Concept Art from 'Pacific Rim'
Yes, we've already seen a trailer for Guillermo del Toro's epic blockbuster Pacific Rim. And while there was plenty of monster and robot action to ogle, it was still just a tease, especially since the movie doesn't come out until July. Now a couple new pieces of concept art have emerged, and it's clear why Legendary Pictures wanted in on this giant sci-fi project. These two pieces from artist Doug Williams give a bit of scale to the humans compared to the Jaeger robots, and also highlight a Skull Temple, which looks to be the remnants of a Kaiju killed many years ago and now is part of an underground, urban environment. Look!
Here's the concept art from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim via Total Film:
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 Pac Rim in theaters in 3D starting July 12th, 2013. Excited?

The concept art in a movie it's an amazing job already, and watch the effort and the progress of productions like this one, it's just out of proportions. the creativity is still the best entertainment ever

Looks cool, I always thought the government would quarantine any of the aliens bits though, but super excited for the film!

There is something about the way Del Toro depicts the size, scale and movement of large mecha versus Transformers that just looks better. Its more gritty and real. You get the massive sense of scale and weight. Really looking forward to it.
