Charlie Hunnam and Guillermo del Toro in photos from the set of his next film Pacific Rim
Some new behind-the-scene set photos for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film PACIFIC RIM, which stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and Charlie Day, have been released and though it’s tough to tell what exactly is going on in the photos it’s still exciting to see the director work on a new film. Apparently PACIFIC RIM impressed the crowds at ComicCon 2012 when some early clips were released and really who doesn’t secretly love the idea of a film where aliens have to battle robots operated by humans? No one, that’s who.
Directed by Guillermo del Toro, PACIFIC RIM takes place during an alien attack where giant robots piloted by humans have to ward off the invaders. PACIFIC RIM stars: Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day and Burn Gorman. PACIFIC RIM will hit theaters on July 12, 2013 and if we’re all lucky we’ll get to see a trailer before the end of this year, possibly in front of THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. (Empire)
