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!

Here are the new photos from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim from Empire (via ComicBookMovie):

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?

  • This movie is going to be utterly fantastic. Anyone who watches a few Del Toro interviews from around the time of Comic Con will know.

      History tells us It's always wise to believe the hype of the director- lol.
      • For starters Del Toro is a director with some great films under his belt. I say we can give him the benefit of the doubt. But I was talking about his appraoch. If you WATCHED the interviews you'd know what I was talking about. The way he is handling this film makes it sound extremely unique and one of a kind. His passion for the project is remarkable. He isn't pulling a 'by the numbers' big budget movie like Bay did with Transformers or like what was done with Battleship. You can tell he is trying everything to make a movie that is as memorable as it can be on every level. "When you have a budget you can get lazy or crazy, and I chose to get as crazy as I could."

          Too bad about At the Mountians of could have been something really spectacular...
          • I'd love for him to get a chance to do that one, maybe if PR is a huge hit. But then again...he did mention an interest in wanting to do a 3rd Hellboy movie.
          • Another Hellboy would be good!
    I hope this is Idris Elba's big break.
  • Rain Spider
    I'm just hoping a movie like this paves the way for a Gundam movie.
  • Why?
    Man you would think with the connections you guys have accumulated over the years these magazines would give you high res images and you wouldn't have to scan them straight off the racks. Nice pics though.
    • We didn't scan them. Another outlet did. The reason they aren't online yet is because Empire published them in their print edition first, so they aren't available in high resolution versions online yet.
  • why does it feel like a dud? Del toro is a great director but have strong doubts about this one..
    • This one is going to be spectacular. I promise you.
      • i am not always convinced about my own opinions so i hope you keep your promise!
        • You can trust me. If you like blockbusters of any variety, this will be for you.
  • George Costanza
    Charlie Hunman in the second photo looks like an escaped gay character from Tron. Not that there's anything wrong with that ...
  • This movie has Evangelion written all over it...and by that i mean it has EFFING AWESOME written all over it!!
  • sindai
    The first pic is of Idris Elba and Robert Kazinsky not Charlie Hunnam.
