A few days ago, we saw that the people of Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ have a huge mess to clean up from the Kaiju that walk the Earth, but now we have some new pictures of the giant robots that exist to protect us from those giant monsters.
On their Twitter account, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have just released a new poster from Del Toro’s upcoming homage to giant monsters vs. robots movies. In the world of the movie, each country gets it’s own robot, which is known as a Jaeger and is controlled by two pilots. America claims Gypsy Danger, Russia has Cherno Alpha, Australia’s is known as Striker Eureka, and China gets Crimson Typhoon, but this new poster shows off Japan’s Jaeger known as Coyote Tango.
You can see the new poster starring Coyote Tango, along with the robot’s blueprint, below:
That is one mean looking machine. I can’t wait to see it in action. And based on what we’ve seen so far from ‘Pacific Rim’, we’ll be seeing our fair share of action.
For more information on the film, here’s the official 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. 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.
What do you think of Japan’s very own Jaeger, Coyote Tango? How do you think it will fair against the Kaiju in Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’? Let us know in the usual spot.
‘Pacific Rim’ starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff invades theaters on July 12, 2013.
