Pacific Rim

Following the stunning, explosive new footage from Pacific Rim that was shown at WonderCon earlier this year, the hype continues with this cool new banner. It's the Sydney Harbour Bridge at the center of destruction this time as a Kaiju has torn a huge chunk out of the structure while a Jaeger robot is poised to attack (though it might also be doing more harm than good to that bridge). The scale of this movie is just epic, and while the action does feel like Godzilla versus Transformers, audiences should know that there is a great human element to the script, so we're not just looking at another junky Battleship here. Poster below!

Here's the new banner for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim from the film's Twitter page:

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.

This is literally the movie everyone has wanted since the beginning of movies

Agreed. Although...a mash up of the avengers and star wars would be second in line to that.

I'd have to say I'm more excited at the possibility of a zack Snyder Star Wars spin off

Not really.

I get the feeling that Asia will bring in 2/3's of the gross 😉

Exactly, just in general, this movie is going to make a killing abroad. This feels like one of the most intentionally diverse blockbusters ever. The top 3 leads are white, black, and asian. In terms of nationality, they are American, English, and Japanese. There are smaller supporting roles played be Mexicans, Russians, and Chinese(and I believe Aussies). Beyond that, the super-team of giant robots represent that USA, China, Russia, Japan, and Australia. It also features international locales including San Francisco as well as Hong Kong, which is a main location for the film. I mean, we've seen time and time again that big blockbuster spectacle has more or less universal appeal...but this movie has extra elements that could definitely help it pull in more diverse crowds all over the world.

Orientals? Classy.

I guess I should have said 'Asian'...Not very knowledgeable when trying to sound Politically Correct.

I've already started covering my garage walls with whatever poster I can find online. They look amazing side by side...I better hide the bank statement from my wife... 🙂
