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.

If this keeps up, by the time Guillermo del Toro’s mechs-versus-monsters science fiction flick Pacific Rim finally hits theaters on July 12th, we’re going to be on a first-name basis with all of the film’s giant mechanoids. The latest poster dropped by Warner Bros. and Legendary pictures introduces us to a Russian mech — or “Jaeger” — named Cherno Alpha.

Pacific Rim Poster Introduces Coyote Tango Jaeger

What’s the best way to combat a scourge of giant monsters that emerge from the depths of the ocean? Why, by building an army of massive mechs, of course. That is exactly what happens in director Guillermo del Doro’s upcoming science fiction film, Pacific Rim. Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have been going a wee bit nuts lately, releasing picture after picture from the movie, and today is no different.

The latest image, a character poster of one of the skyscraper-tall robots called Jaegers, introduces us to Coyote Tango, also known as the “Giant Japanese Techno-Tyrant.” Reading this title, you can’t help but be reminded of the world of professional wrestling. Take a gander at this massive, mechanical ass-kicker for yourself.

Pacific Rim’s Early Buzz Is Insanely Positive

Expectations and anticipation were extremely high when we first heard that Guillermo del Toro was making a movie about giant mechs battling giant sea monsters. When Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. first screened the film for test audiences back in February, reactions were mainly positive. Now more screenings have brought even more praise.

This past weekend, Warner Bros. screened another cut of Pacific Rim. The reactions afterward were even more positive than originally expected, and unless Guillermo Del Toro dramatically changes Pacific Rim between now and July, you can expect it to be one of the biggest movies of the summer.

The lucky few people who attended the secret test screening took to Twitter to voice their opinions. Although reactions were extremely positive, keep in mind how Twitter tends to exaggerate. Read some of the positive reactions below:

As science fiction fans, we’re well aware of many potential hazards posed by giant monsters. There’s the possibility of being stepped on in the midst of a violent rampage, you or your loved ones are in imminent danger of being eaten, many of them shoot fire, they topple tall buildings, the list goes on and on. A pair of new images from Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming monsters-versus-robots picture Pacific Rim, however, reveal problems that most of us hadn’t thought of.

When Pacific Rim’s Mechs And Monsters Collide, Things Can Get Messy

When giant creatures engage in life or death battles with skyscraper-tall robots, no matter the outcome, the result is sure to resemble a junkyard explosion. All of this mech-versus-monster pummeling is sure to cause quite a mess. On the other hand, this could be boon to the economy. Cleaning up after these catastrophic clashes may lead to the creation of an entirely new industry, and provide important new jobs in an otherwise tough economy. At least that’s what you might gather from this latest picture from Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming sci-fi epic Pacific Rim.
