7 New Images from Guillermo Del Toro's PACIFIC RIM

Pacific Rim Poster
A new set of 7 images from Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" have been released. The images feature leading actors Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi and give us a glimpse of the robots piloted by humans to fight the giant creatures which threaten our world. The film has received some positive buzz from recent test screenings. One such particularly enthusiastic reaction was that of director Rian Johnson ("Looper") who twitted : "Go into Pacific Rim prepared to be transmogrified into a 12 year old. And then to pee your pants with joy. I love it so much." "Pacific Rim" will be released in 3D on July 12, 2013.

Check out the new images after the jump.

"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."
