Last month, we got our first official look at Guillermo del Toro’s mysterious giant monster movie ‘Pacific Rim’ in the form of Idris Elba in costume. Now, we have another look at the 2013 release courtesy of Entertainment Weekly (via Collider). In this photo, we see Charlie Hunnam, who plays a washed-up pilot, and Rinko Kikuchi, an untested trainee. Both are shown wearing flight suits similar to Elba’s in the first released picture.
Check out the picture below, followed by the synopsis for the film:
“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 and an untested trainee—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.”
‘Pacific Rim’, starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman, opens in theaters on May 10, 2013.
