While you can see Idris Elba pilot a spaceship on screens this weekend, you'll only see him in a badass uniform below.
Moviehole scanned the first photo from Guillermo del Toro's highly anticipated giant monster movie, PACIFIC RIM. It features Idris Elba, suited up and ready to kick kaiju ass. And as Guillermo del Toro told the publication, "we ended up building several blocks of Hong Kong. And literally demolished them." And I'm ready to watch just that.
Here's the recently uncovered official synopsis: ""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."
PACIFIC RIM is out July 12, 2013.
