Del Toro, who has been a fan of Japanese horror since he was a kid, personally asked Yoji Shinkawa to draw a poster for the film. Yoji is best known for his work on the Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders game series. In his classic inkbrush style, Yoji illustrates the Jaeger mecha Gypsy Danger standing on top of the defeated Kaiju Knifehead.
These Kaiju came to Earth through a portal that opened up in the Pacific Ocean, and have been eradicating humans since their arrival. To fight the Kaiju threat, humans have developed a mecha called Jaeger which is German for hunter and prepare to definitively end the war. The creator of Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders himself, Hideo Kojima, had some high words for the movie: I have never imagined that I would be fortunate enough to see a film like this in my life. Animation and special effects movies and shows that I loved in my childhood days — they all truly exist in the screen.
This film is not simply a film to be respected, but most importantly, it let us dream the future of entertainment movies.

I hope you would accept this inspirational love letter that had traveled across the Pacific, written by Director Guillermo del Toro.
