One of the most anticipated movies of next summer is Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim. The sci-fi story about a cross-dementional rift in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, where monsters and sea creatures spill onto Earth has been in developmental hell for quite some time.
To get ready for San Diego Comic-Con in a few weeks, Entertainment Weekly has released its annual Comic-Con issue featuring exclusive images of actor Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) and actress Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, The Brothers Bloom) from Pacific Rim. The pair are wearing amazing looking mech battle suits as they’re about to put on their helmets set in a strange robot deck. Hunnam will play Raleigh Antrobus, a washed up former pilot, who is teamed up with his trainee Mako Mori, played by Kikuchi. Together they are Earth’s last hope.
The above scan comes from photos of Idris Elba as Stacker Pentecost from Pacific Rim were released a few weeks ago. These mech suits look so much better than the similar mech suits featured in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra a few years ago.
Pacific Rim will be part of Warner Bros’ panel on Friday July 13th at Comic-Con, along with The Hobbit and The Man of Steel. The movie was directed by Guillermo Del Toro and will also feature Ron Perlman, Charlie Day, and Clifton Collins Jr. Pacific Rim will also be released on July 12th 2013.
