Pacific Rim Becomes an ‘Art Film’

imaxrimIf you need just one more reason to attend tonight’s advance screenings of Pacific Rim — which technically opens tomorrow, July 12 — how about this sweetener: Fans who attend an IMAX screening at designated theaters can get this frankly awesome-looking free poster print!

Director Guillermo Del Toro has commissioned Los Angeles artist Sergio Grisanti to create a poster of the Jaeger Gipsy Danger battling the kaiju Leatherback, and it will only be available as a giveaway tonight.

Guillermo said of the poster:

“I am thrilled to introduce Sergio Grisanti to the world. For years he has been a highly respected commercial artist. When I was first exposed to his art for Pacific Rim, I knew instantly that he was a powerhouse of talent. He created the Jaeger posters/card art we used at WonderCon. Without any hesitation I asked him to create this new Imax Fanfix art. Look at it closely — with a magnifying glass! So much going on! Such power! Such beauty! Sergio loves his Kaijus and his Mecha, and it shows. The poster, like my film, is a tribute to well-loved things. I wish all the fans the best time at the first Imax screenings of Pacific Rim. Enjoy!”

Remember, the poster is only available at tonight’s 10 o’clock IMAX screenings.

Oh, yeah? Sez you!
