Entertainment Weekly have unleashed another exclusive pic from the Guillermo del Toro's new sci-fi epic 'Pacific Rim'. The still comes ahead of its upcoming panel appearance at this years Comic Con and features our first peek at star Charlie Hunnam ('Sons of Anarchy') as well as cute co-star Rinko Kikuchi ('Assault Girls') donning their awesome looking flight suits. Although if you squint hard enough it could almost be mistaken for a shot from Ridley Scott's recent 'Prometheus' project. Anyhoo Ron Perlman ('Season of the Witch'), Idris Elba ('The Wire'), Charlie Day ('Horrible Bosses'), Robert Kazinsky ('Eastenders'), Clifton Collins Jr and Max Martini also star in the action flick due for release around this time next year. Check out the plot deets and the new pic below.
"Legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and begin a war that would takes millions of lives and consumes 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' invades theatres from 12 July 2013.
