A new Pacific Rim poster surfaced today to reiterate the enormous scale director Guillermo del Toro is playing with for his upcoming giant monsters vs. robots summer tentpole.
The poster features Gypsy Danger, the hero giant Jaeger robot, walking through a city that is under seige by the Kaiju monsters. The Jaeger’s kneecap is several stories off the ground, while cars in the foreground look like ants in its presence.
You haev to love del Toro and the artist’s attention to detail with rubble falling off the Jaeger as it maneuvers through the street and smoke rising from the destruction left behind. We have only gotten a tiny glimpse of what combat in the film will be like when Jaegers and Kaiji clash. I expect the next trailer will blow our minds.
Pacific Rim aims big when it releases in theaters on July 12 in 3D and IMAX 3D.
