New Poster for Pacific RimApril 22, 2013
Join the Pan Pacific Defense Corps!
A film that is dear to our hearts here at The GCE, Pacific Rim has released a new poster online to remind us of the upcoming film. Although viral marketing for the film began in November 2012, it’s hard to compete with the recent media blitz with Iron Man, Star Trek: Into Darkness and Man of Steel. To remind us of the film coming out July 12 in 2D, 3D and IMAX, Warner Bros. released the poster seen below.
Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Clifton Collins Jr., Rinko Kikuchi and Robert Maillet.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanities 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 mankinds last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
