Tuesday 30th April 2013 by Shawn Madden

Following the release of a new trailer for the film, Warner Bros. Pictures & Legendary Pictures have released  a brand new banner for the Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. The banner features a battle between one of the film’s Jaegers and a Kaiju that is sure to be bad news for that bridge.

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.
