Anything Guillermo del Toro does has our attention. Sure, we’re disappointed he’s not going to get the chance to make At The Mountains of Madness, but whatever his giant robots vs. giant monsters movie turns out to be, it is sure to have giant robots. How giant? Well, the first poster for the movie is above and gives us a sense of scale with the two humans on the robot’s shoulder.
io9 has a few more details: “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.”
Didn’t realize it was starring Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Green Street Hooligans), who is an underrated presence, so that’s a welcome bit of news.
