’s monsters vs. robots film Pacific Rim
We get a glimpse at the characters played by Idris Elba
and Rinko Kikuchi
in what looks like some sort of control room… but what does it control?
Given that we’ve had time to digest the spectacular first trailer
for Pacific Rim it’s the kind of movie we wish existed back when we were six years old. It’s also safe to say del Toro isn’t pulling any punches either.

, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke

Check out this new still from upcoming sci-fi action adventure as a part of our 2013 film preview.
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.
