Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.11.12] scifi horror action adventure

Another piece of artwork has appeared at the New York Comic Con (NYCC), this time a propaganda style poster for Guillermo Del Toro's crazy ass robots Vs. Kaiju movie, Pacific Rim.

Maybe it's because I'm super excited to see more from the movie, but this feels like a neat idea, poorly realized. Certainly we've seen this kind of thing before. But hell, it qualifies as our first look at what is probably one of the robots from the flick, so it works for me!

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.

Oscar nominee Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth) is directing Pacific Rim from a script by Travis Beacham (Clash of the Titans). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.

Here it is again, but bigger:

The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV’s Sons of Anarchy), Idris Elba (Thor), Rinko Kikuchi (The Brothers Bloom), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses), and Ron Perlman (the Hellboy films). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.

The film is set to hit theaters on July 12

Hmm. Kind of a disappointing silhouette there. Shades of Transformers and not enough 70s Japanese robos. We'll see I guess, still stoked!
