New image from Pacific Rim

A new image has been released from Guillermo Del Toro’s sci-fi epic, Pacific Rim , and oddly enough, it contains neither aliens nor giant robots.

Instead, the new image is a rather sober shot of Idris Elba conversing with Rinko Kikuchi against a backdrop of some sort of centre of operations.

The film finds Earth in deadly peril, when a race of bizarre aliens known as “Kaiju” pitch up on our fair planet and start throwing their weight around. A lethal invading force, it isn’t long before they’ve all but taken over the planet.

However, humanity does have one last throw of the dice in the form of an army of giant robots, controlled and piloted by a crack unit of military forces. Take that, aliens!

Directed by Del Toro and co-starring Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and Charlie Day, Pacific Rim will open in the UK on 12 July 2013.
