With San Diego Comic-Con 2012 less than a week away, studios are rolling out some promo material to psych up the masses before even entering the hallowed halls. We’ve already seen one for ‘The Walking Dead’ and now we have a new one for Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’.
Previously, we got a look at actors Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, and Rinko Kikuchi in costume, but this time we get our first look at one of the gigantic robots called Jaegers that will fight off the monstrous Kaiju that threaten the population. Check out the Comic-Con preview poster below, courtesy of Bleeding Cool:
It kind of reminds me of the Iron Giant. And who are the two figures on it’s shoulder? Possibly Elba and Hunnam? Or maybe one of them is the ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ star Charlie Day who is also starring in the film. Regardless of who’s in this poster, I’m sure that attendees of SDCC will get a better idea of all things ‘Pacific Rim’ and the Warner Bros. & Legendary Pictures panel in Hall H on Saturday at 2:30pm. Though it’s not guaranteed, it’s likely that Del Toro will bring some sort of footage to get our mouths watering before the movie’s release next year.
‘Pacific Rim’, starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman, opens in theaters on May 10, 2013.
