New ‘Pacific Rim’ Poster Shows Off A Giant Japanese Robot [Photo]

Pacific Rim

The latest poster for director Guillermo del Toro’s science fiction flick Pacific Rim shows off one of the film’s many giant robots.

In order to battle the enormous monsters that threaten to crush mankind’s future, scientists develop giant robots that are remotely controlled by two humans. The latest poster for del Toro’s big-budget outing gives moviegoers a glimpse of Coyote Tango in action.

Judging from the artwork embedded below, the enormous mechanical fighters can do just as much damage to surrounding cities as the creatures they’re designed to fight.

The recent Pacific Rim images have certainly been intriguing. In addition to the latest poster, Warner Bros. has released intriguing pictures of monster poop and a city being constructed around an enormous set of bones.

Prior to those images hitting the web, a picture of a Godzilla-style footprint started making the rounds. The photos were designed to look as if they had been pulled from an official news broadcast.

All of the latest images can be found in the gallery below.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures provide the following synopsis:

“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.

“On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the apocalypse.”

Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke, and Diego Klattenhoff. Look for the film to arrive in theaters on July 12.
