PACIFIC RIM - Kaiju Crush Banner and 2 New Character Posters

A new banner has been released for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim representing New Zealand's Jaeger called the "Kaiju Crush." There are also two new character posters featuring Idris Elba's PPDC Marshal Stacker Pentecost and Rinko Kikuchi as Jaeger pilot Mako Mori.

It was pointed out to us, that the poster above is part of a marketing campaign for a site that allows you to build your own Jaeger. Check it out here!

The insanely awesome looking movie also stars Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff. It's set to open in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on July 12th!

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 (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (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.
