In all honesty the more assets we see for the Guillermo Del Toro helmed monster/robot the more absurd the movie seems. A new set of character posters from the production have arrived featuring the man-made Jaeger robots Striker Eureka and Gypsy Danger as well as a couple of the Kaiju creatures named Leatherback and Otachi. Presented more like top trump cards as opposed to character poses we're starting to expect nothing more than a big screen video game come next Friday. 'Pacific Rim' stars Charlie Hunnam ('Sons of Anarchy'), Rinko Kikuchi ('Assault Girls'), Ron Perlman ('Season of the Witch'), Idris Elba ('The Wire'), Charlie Day ('Horrible Bosses'), Robert Kazinsky ('Eastenders'), Clifton Collins Jr and Max Martini. Check out the new posters below.
"When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse."
'Pacific Rim' arrives in theatres on 12 July.
