On the shoulders of giants, and such.
In anticipation of the very exciting first look panel at next week's San Diego Comic-Con, we've been gifted with a teaser poster for next summer's PACIFIC RIM. Guillermo del Toros' giant monsters vs. giant mechas picture certainly seems to be delivering in size factor, with stars Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba in place for a bit of scale.
"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."
PACIFIC RIM and del Toro take over Hall H next Saturday, July 14 at 2:30 p.m. in San Diego, and Fango will be there to report on all we see. PACIFIC RIM is out July 12, 2013.
