Not much is known about the plot of Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim yet other than the fact that it features giant robots squaring off against mountainous monsters. But with a premise as epic as that, we don't even need to hear any other details. Essentially, Pacific Rim is del Toro's way of paying tribute to the old school Japanese giant monster films, known as the daikaiju eiga genre.
The movie stars Charlie Hunnam as a former mech pilot who has to help the citizens of Earth fight off an army of giant monsters that rise from the sea. The film will also feature Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff. And now, courtesy of Coming Soon, you can check out the first poster from the movie below.
