We get two more images from the Guillero Del Toro-directed monster movie, Pacific Rim, that seem to reveal the aftermath of a battle with one of the Kaiju.

The Kaiju are some sort of otherworldy monsters attacking from some sort of portal out of the ocean.

In response, mankind creates gigantic "monsters" of their own in the form of gigantic metal mechs known as Jaegers.

Legendary Entertainment revealed the following two image stills which included the following captions.

"We will rebuild the city around its bones" and "Kaiju Blue clean-up detail: an endless, thankless task."



Pacific Rim opens July 12th, 2013, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman.


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.
