I think most Guillermo del Toro fans wish that he were currently shooting his James Cameron-assisted At the Mountains of Madness, but at least he is finally shooting something. That something, if you have not been keeping tabs on the man, is Pacific Rim. From a script by Clash of the Titans‘ Travis Beacham, the story is set in a future where a dimensional rift has opened up in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, through which an assortment of otherworldly beasties can sneak through. So Earth builds some giant robots to punch the beasties. Now, thanks to a ComicCon poster, we get our first peek at what at least one of those giant robots will look like and just how giant it is. Feast!
And here I was waiting for someone to remake Robot Jox.
