‘Pacific Rim’ Goes Viral with New NYCC Exclusive Poster
Studios are hitting this weekend’s New York Comic Con fast and hard with new marketing materials, like this cool poster for Guillermo del Toro‘s ‘Pacific Rim.’ The film doesn’t hit theaters until next summer, but this new poster can hit your wall by Sunday.
‘Pacific Rim’ is Guillermo del Toro’s next big epic — a major sci-fi actioner about people in giant robot suits fighting huge monsters. Remember all that time you spent playing with toys that didn’t belong together, like dinosaurs and G.I. Joes? Basically, Guillermo del Toro made a career out of having an awesome imagination, so your mom was totally wrong about you.
The film has an awesome cast including Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, and Rinko Kikuchi, and while we’re a little miffed that the studio pressured the director into post-converting the film to 3D, we’re still super stoked about what promises to be one hell of an experience at the theater next summer.
We won’t be able to see the fruits of Del Toro’s labor until July 12 of 2013, but you can check out this cool viral poster right now. And thanks to Charlie Day’s part in the film, Guillermo del Toro will be making a guest appearance on ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘ this season, and we think that’s pretty amazing.
