New Featurette and Banner Poster for PACIFIC RIM

Pacific Rim Rinko Kikuchi

A new featurette and banner poster for Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" have been released. In the featurette, del Toro explains how the sets for the Jaeger cockpits were conceived and built. It's truly impressive. I personally thought that there was more CGI used for those cockpits, but apparently I was wrong. They are fully operational mechanical sets that look awesome. The banner poster is a composite of leading actors Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba, and the Jaeger robots in the background. The film also stars Charlie Day and Ron Perlman. The release date is July 12, 2013.

Check out the featurette and poster after the jump.

Pacific Rim Guillermo del Toro Poster
"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."
