Four new photos have been released for Guillermo del Toro‘s upcoming sci-fi monster flick Pacific Rim. Most of the photos are from the set of the film and feature Idris Elba (The Wire, Thor) and Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Children of Men) in their robot pilot suits, sitting in a cockpit while talking to Guillermo del Toro.
Here’s the official synopsis for Pacific Rim:
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.
The film also stars Ron Perlman, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Max Martini, Robert Maillet, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, Heather Doerksen, and Larry Joe Campbell.
