Pacific Rim Mondo Comic-Con Posters

SDCC 2013: Mondo Unveils “Pacific Rim” Comic-Con Posters

Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim will be in theaters this Friday, and is also expected to make a huge splash at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. To commemorate the event, Mondo will be offering exclusive, limited edition posters at their booth at Comic-Con from Wednesday the 17th through Sunday the 21st. Several of these epic posters will feature Pacific Rim. Entertainment Weekly has the details.

“Mondo has always been instrumental in cementing world creation in pop culture — these posters by Ash Thorp and Kevin Tong and Vania Zouravliov capture perfectly the wild, gleeful spirit of Pacific Rim – here’s to a mad world of Mecha and Kaiju!!” said del Toro in a statement to EW.

“I love monsters. I love robots. I love Guillermo del Toro. When he asked us to do posters for a movie he was directing with both, how could we say no? GDT wasn’t a bystander in the process, though. As he did in our previous director’s series, he helped hand pick the artist and gave notes on the designs. We’re all very proud to have worked on this project with him,” said Justin Ishmael CEO of Mondo.

Who doesn’t love Mondo or Guillermo del Toro? Those guys are masterminds!

Synopsis:

“When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanitys resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankinds last hope against the mounting apocalypse.”
