We are just mere days away from converging at the mecca of all things geek: the San Diego Comic-Con. And to tease some of the highly anticipated Hall H panels, Warner Brothers has released a few exclusive posters for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Pacific Rim. Now a big title that’s missing from this collection is Zack Snyder’s Superman film Man of Steel, so hopefully we will get to see that one days before the opening of the Con. Check these posters out below.
First poster (via Bloody-Disgusting) is that of Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim. The film tells the story of giant robots versus giant monsters. We previously saw a tease of Idris Elba in a high-tech suit. But the poster puts an emphasis on the robots and shows just how large the mechanical beings are when compared to that of their human operators.
We will be sure to detail all of it for you. Pacific Rim is scheduled to open July 12, 2013.
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.
Next up The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Peter Jackson‘s adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien beloved novel. We previously posted Jackson in a photo signaling the end of principal photography for the film and now we also have a poster that we’d like to share.
The poster features Gandalf the Grey walking along a path away from the Shire. There’s a lot of imagery that reminds of us of where’s Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings trilogy started. Of course this is the first time the general public will be able to see 48 fps in action. Hopefully – after receiving some harsh criticism – Jackson’s preferred method of shooting can live up to its hype.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, hits on December 14 of this year.
