Pacific Rim

Though the film is still a couple of months away, there's no denying Pacific Rim is one of the biggest films of the summer, literally and figuratively. It's hard to get much bigger than skyscraper size robots fighting giant monsters across the country on the ground, in the sea and probably even up in the air. While we're waiting for a new trailer to show us more of Guillermo del Toro's summer action extravaganza starring Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam and more, a new poster has just shown up with a robot trying to hail a taxi or something in the city. Also, construction crews in that city are going to be rich. Look!

Here's the new poster for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim from Warner Bros. Pictures:

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. Warner Bros will release Pacific Rim in theaters in 3D on July 12th. See the full trailer.

Judging by the awesome poster, it must be one hell of a movie. Just so awesome! πŸ™‚ Oh yeah, and... poor cars. I hope none of them was/will be harmed in the making of this movie. β€”β€” R. Valentino, Caricature & Portrait Artist.

I'm not excited for this the trailers haven't done much for me but seeing as Pan's Labyrinth is one of my favorite films and i did enjoy Hellboy a lot (both of them) there is no doubt in my mind I will be there opening night! And the Poster is neat.

Agreed. I love Del Toro's films so i'll definitely be seeing it, but overall the trailers have done anything for me. Hoping to be pleasantly surprised!

Loads. Personally, I can't wait for MONSTER. I loved that anime, and I know he will do it justice.

I feel like an outcast when I say I am not hyped for this movie, not that I don't want to watch it, I just don't feel any sort of urge to watch it.... Yet I'm probably going to watch it anyways haha.

When are we gonna see some Kaiju?Im sick of seeing robots every week! We want Kaiju!!!

The Kaiju are likely being saved as a surprise for the finished film. I actually like that...sell us with cool robots, and then let us see the monsters firsthand in the theater.
