PACIFIC RIM Graphic Novel and Trading Card Art
Pacific Rim looks to be an epic affair and one that can't come soon enough. Everything I have seen looks spectacular!
The GeekTyrant crew was at WonderCon and caught the panel for the movie, which featured director Guillermo del Toro. To help promote the blockbuster Warner Bros. has released trading cards that feature detailed breakdowns of five of the Jaegers (Giant Mech Robots).
The cover art for the prequel graphic novel has also been unveiled, which was done by none other than Alex Ross! The comic will provide back stories to many of the main characters in the movie, and will also give us a look at the early incarnations of the Jaegers.
Pretty freakin' cool!
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.
The epicness will hit theaters on July 12th.
