New Images from Guillermo del Toro's Sci-Fi Action Flick 'Pacific Rim'
Though Comic-Con audiences were treated to some action-packed footage from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim earlier this summer (check out our video blog here), the Hellboy director said that was the only footage from the film he would show until a trailer was released sometime this winter. In the meantime, we've seen one official first look photo from the film, and now some new images have surfaced from the film giving us a glimpse at Charlie Day from a distance and a shot of Idris Elba with Charlie Hunnam in Jaeger (giant fighting robots) operator suits. They're not thrilling, but see the photos below!
Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) is directing Pacific Rim from a script by Travis Beacham. The film follows a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi), who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger, a massive robot designed to fight legions of monstrous creatures known as Kaiju, which started rising from the sea years ago. They stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse. The film also stars Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day and Clifton Collins Jr. and Warner Bros. sends the film to theaters everywhere on July 12th, 2013. Excited?
