After the first trailer hit, the Pacific Rim marketing machine had taken a surreal path. Intended to give us little glimpses at the world of the film, we’ve seen “a day in the life” pictures of everything from huge footprints to ginormous piles of monster dung. This past week or so things have returned to a more traditional approach, serving up some truly badass posters of the film’s “jaegers,” the giant mechs created to battle the “kaiju,” enormous extradimensional creatures who emerge from beneath the Pacific and begin ruining humanity’s day.
The one up above is “Gipsy Danger,” the mech piloted by two of the film’s leads, Charlie Hunnam as Raleigh Becket and Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori. Gipsy is American made, but as you might imagine, fighting giant sea monsters is an international affair. Each of the posters we’ve seen recently shows off another nation’s contribution to the Jaeger lineup. Here are the two other new posters, introducing Australia’s Striker Eureka and China’s Crimson Typhoon.
