While the big must see movie of July is "The Dark Knight Rises," one week before Batman returns, geeks will be getting in a froth at Comic-Con, the annual San Diego shindig that offers up a bounty of genre/fantasy/action fare as the studios show off their baubles, with presentations that they hope will help boost box office dollars. And with less a week to go, two of the biggest movies, by two of the biggest Comic-Con faves, will be on the convention floor to start building up the buzz, with posters now landing for both.

Meanwhile, the man who was originally going to direct "The Hobbit" movies, Guillermo Del Toro, will be unveiling something quite different with the big sci-fi flick "Pacific Rim." So far all we've had from the movie is literally two stills, but we'd wager Comic-Con will be the start of a big push for the movie that features no A-list names (Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff) in a tentpole-sized movie not based on a comic, brand or toy. The poster seems to give a close-up look of the robot our heroes will piloting to defeat the monsters that attack Earth. What else will Del Toro be bringing with him? You'll just have to wait until next weekend. "Pacific Rim" opens on July 12th. [Cinema Blend]
