What a great new trend in teaser posters: Giving us NOTHING to work with. Look: A Giant Robot and what appears to be the little Angel and/or the little Devil sitting atop his shoulder. What’s this movie about, anyway?

“When an alien attack threatens the Earth’s existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace.”

From I09:

“This is our first glimpse of what might be the Jaegar, the obsolete giant robot that a washed-up pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) have to team up to pilot, as humanity’s last hope against the rampaging giant monsters that have decimated our other giant robot forces.”

Wait? I thought we already had a Bathtub Transformers called Battleship. At the very least, Pacific Rim boasts a fantastic cast: Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, and Rinko Kikuchi. It will also be Del Toro’s first film in five years.
