PACIFIC RIM Posters Drop a Jaeger Bomb

     March 29, 2013


A blitz of new posters from Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim features all five of the giant mecha suits known as Jaegers.  Built for battling the monstrous Kaiju that wreak havoc on our world, the international team of Jaegers includes Japan’s “Coyote Tango,” America’s “Gipsy Danger,” Russia’s “Cherno Alpha,” Australia’s “Striker Eureka” and China’s “Crimson Typhoon.”  The posters look fantastic and highlight the varied designs of the battling bots; I want them on my wall to go along with the eventual toys.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman.  Pacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th.

Check out all five Jaegers on the following Pacific Rim posters (via @wbpictures):

Here’s the official synopsis for Pacific Rim:

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.
