Mecha Scale Up for Hollywood in "Pacific Rim" Comic Con Poster

Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba dwarfed by the scale of Guillermo Del Toro’s giant robot

Gearing up for hype at this year's San Diego Comic Con, the gigantic scale of the mecha protecting Earth from alien invaders in Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim are on display in a new event poster.

 

From Warner Brothers' official description:

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.

 

Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba (apparently on the shoulder for scale) star along with Rinko Kikuchi as pilots.
