New “Pacific Rim” NYCC Poster

Aside from that highly impressive sneak peek at San Diego Comic Con this year, the first footage for Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” will make its big public debut attached to the first of “The Hobbit” films in December.

Now an old war-time propaganda style poster for the film, created by Spanish artist Raúl Monge, has gone online via The Nerdist. The poster, which debuted at New York Comic-Con this week, features one of the giant robots that our heroes will use to fight the monsters that threaten our world.

It’s also been announced that the film’s scribe, Travis Beacham, has penned a three-part graphic novel that will essentially serve as a prequel for the movie and provide important character and story details. Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost character is said to figure prominently in all three parts.
