Check out the four new Mondo prints of Guillermo del Toro science fiction movie's Pacific Rim that will be made available for sale at the Mondo booth at Comic-Con from Wednesday, July 17 to Sunday, July 21.
“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.
“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.

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.
Oscar nominee Guillermo del Toro is directing ‘Pacific Rim’ from a script by Travis Beacham. Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.
The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day , and Ron Perlman. The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.
Del Toro’s behind-the-scenes team includes Academy Award®-winning director of photography Guillermo Navarro, production designer Andrew Neskoromny, editor Peter Amundson, and costume designer Kate Hawley.
