Idris Elba's First Image From 'Pacific Rim' Is Powerful

Here is the first official photo of Idris Elba in the Warner Bros. epic sci-fi film Pacific Rim.

The Guillermo Del Toro’s film is set in a future in which aggressive alien-like creatures attack the planet. The human-manned robots on Earth must come together and use highly advanced technology to stop the growing number of odd beings.

Del Toro recently mentioned that they would be building several blocks in Hong Kong just for the film, which they will use for the movie and demolish them all in the process.

Here is the synopsis for Pacific Rim below:

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action-adventure Pacific Rim.

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 slated for a Summer 2013 release.
