NYCC: PACIFIC RIM Promo Poster Revealed
Director Guillermo Del Toro will be signing copies of this propaganda style poster for his upcoming monsters vs robots flick at NYCC tomorrow, and you can check out the artwork by Raúl Monge here. A tie-in graphic novel has also been announced..
"Raúl is one of my top concept designers. The idea with this particular piece was to emulate an old WWII propaganda poster/flyer that went along with the world we were creating. It symbolizes rationing - voluntary work force, no guts, no glory kind of heroism." said Del Toro of the poster and its artist. In addition, it has been announced that a graphic novel penned by the movie's writer Travis Beacham is also in the works, that will serve as a prequel in three parts.
Del Toro will be signing copies at the Legendary Entertainment booth on Friday, October 12 at 2 pm. The art will also be unveiled at the Legendary panel at 5:15 pm.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's 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 mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
