From the recent WonderCon, comes this exciting trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s July releasing film, Pacific Rim. Seeing it’s from del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) , we get plenty of cool looking action, and of course, Ron Perlman.
I have the two re-done Blu-Rays of the excellent anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion, which Pacific Rim has been compared to, with its giant mechs vs giant monsters set up. Still, certainly worth seeing on the big screen.
The prequel comic, with a cover by Alex Ross (below) hits stores form Legendary Comics a few weeks before the film.
Hitting stores June 5, PACIFIC RIM: TALES FROM YEAR ZERO serves as a prequel to the highly-anticipated motion picture — Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim. Chronicling the very first time Earth is menaced by incredible monsters known as Kaiju, these inhuman beasts rise from the ocean depths and threaten to extinquish all mankind! Witness the race to develop massive robot fighting machines called Jaegers, each one controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. This action-packed book features many of the key characters from the film as we follow them in their early careers. Written by Pacific Rim screenwriter himself, Travis Beacham, and with del Toro’s hands-on supervision, this volume is beautifully illustrated by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, and Pericles Junior; inks by Steve Bird and Mark McKenna.
