Since August last year, we here at AndyErupts have been bringing you news on Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, sneaking you peeks at stills, rumours of casting news and plot outlines.
Now, we can continue this drip-feed of info with a little look at some artwork that has been released in advance of the San Diego Comic-Con, where GDT will be in attendance with some of the stars of Pacific Rim Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, and Ron Perlman on Saturday July 14th, in Hall H at 1430… but the film is still about one year from being released in cinemas worldwide on July 12th 2013.
If you’ve missed our coverage so far, here’s the synopsis, fiends…
“From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure 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.”
