New Pacific Rim Poster Online
With actual monsters!

01 May 2013  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: JoBlo

Clanking ominously towards a screen near you is Guillermo del Toro's tribute to Toho monster movies, Pacific Rim. There's been a poster or two - or 149 - along the way, but our appetite for Pacific-based destruction remains somewhere between 'feverish' and 'frenzied'. This new banner, courtesy of JoBlo, for the movie shows the scale of what Earth's saviours will be dealing with. Not the bridge. The ginormous stegosaurus-looking bastard that's about to eat Sydney.


Bearing in mind that Sydney Harbour Bridge towers a not-inconsiderable 134 metres about the surface of the harbour, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam and the rest of the Jaegers crews have their work cut out battling the towering, extra-dimensional Kaiju.

For more on the movie, revisit the trailer below and then head over to Empire's micro-detailed trailer breakdown here. There are extra pics to be found here and here, and a special primer can be found in a 10 Films To See Before Pacific Rim feature.

Pacific Rim arrives in UK cinemas on July 12.

I cannot decide which movie I'm more looking forward to - this or Man of Steel. I fully expect both to rock. I would pay for both Blu Rays right now. More

I think this movie is a good example of what I like to call the Conan test: in Conan the Barbarian, there's a scene where Conan punches a camel in the face. If that sentence makes you want to see the movie, you'll like it. If not, you won't. Similarly, my guess is that if the idea of giant monsters v giant robots appeals to you, you'll like it. If not, you probably won't. More

Still far from sold on this...
But that poster is pretty cool! More
