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.

    NICE! No…where are the action figures??!!


    Another Stupid Movie..Whats wrong with Americans??
    They are highly depended on action sequences..and coz of that a movie with a good plot is hard to find.
    Now a days when i am watching hollywood movies i feel like i tuned into cartoon network and watching a 2013 version of Tom and Jerry!!

    • Rich woa

      For all we know this movie will be amazing. I don’t know anything about the plot so I could be wrong. But saying a movie sucks simply because it is an action movie is just wrong.

      Well, it’s coming from Guillermo del Toro, who is known for great storytelling as well as beautiful visuals. If you are expecting something akin to Transformers, you’re most likely greatly mistaken.

      you should really pay more attention to grammar and spelling before you start calling movies stoopid.

      You realize that “Hollywood” also put out LINCOLN, right? And THE DARK KNIGHT? And AVENGERS? Problems with these movies?

      And of COURSE brainless action movies will always get made because they MAKE GLOBAL MONEY. I don’t know where you’re from, but I guarantee they ate up BATTLESHIP and gave it huge grosses, ’cause it did nothing over here but went on to make it’s money back. If the world stopped giving it’s money to movies like this and suddenly ATONEMENT made a billion dollars at the worldwide box office, I GUARANTEE Hollywood would be in the business of plot-and-character-driven literate fare. The majority of the world just isn’t that savvy.

    Coyote Tango is one of the toughest and you guys left it off the top four.

  • Dave

    I hope the robots won’t start fighting with each other.

    I wanted a British Jaeger called Vinnie Jones…

  • Blather

    Nice to see we Aussies put together a Jaeger. Though they might not be so happy when it stops fighting to find a 500 gallon tinny.
