New posters for two of this summer’s most anticipated films have arrived online. First up, hot on the heels of yesterday’s excellent banner comes a new poster for Guillermo del Toro’s Warner Bros. tentpole Pacific Rim. The film’s story is kicked off by the emergence of monsters (known as Kaiju) who start a war that devastates humanity. To fight back, the humans build giant robots (known as Jaegers) that are controlled by two pilots. This new poster shows a host of Jaegers assembling either for battle or one epic pool party. The film opens in 3D on July 12th.
Additionally, a couple of new character posters for Todd Phillips’ trilogy closing The Hangover Part III features the return of Heather Graham’s stripper-with-a-heart-of-gold Jade and her baby “Carlos,” as well as John Goodman’s villainous character. If you missed any coverage from our set visit, you can get caught up on interviews with Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Zach Galifianakis, Phillips and screenwriter Craig Mazin at the corresponding links. The film opens on May 24th. Hit the jump to check out all three posters.
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.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Hangover Part III:
“The Hangover Part III” is the third and final film in director Todd Phillips’ record-shattering comedy franchise. This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.
