A new picture from film Pacific Rim has hit the internet, displaying Idris Elba and Rinko Kikuchi in some type of control room setting with a map of the world in the background. In the photo, Elba looks as though he is giving Kikuchi an order as Kikuchi stands fully alert.
Pacific Rim is based on the story that finds humans in a hectic losing battle against giant monsters called Kaiju. To build a defence against the beasts, the humans will have to turned to technology and build their own superior robots called Jaegers.
The official synopsis describes Pacific Rim as:
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.
Besides Elba and Kikuchi, Pacific Rim, stars Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman, and it’s slated to hit theaters on July 12, 2013.
