I want to perform an experiment. I want to walk into a movie theater with a friend who has no idea what Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim is. We’d stroll by the latest poster. I won’t say anything about the poster, I’ll just see if they notice it. Because they will. And the reaction will most likely be, “Oh wow, I want to see that movie right the f**k now.”
The latest poster for del Toro’s monsters vs. aliens mega film promises big things. And it’s as eye-catching and awesome as we expect the film to be. It’s out July 12, check out the poster below.
Thanks to Coming Soon for the poster.
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.
