The first image from director Guillermo del Toro's (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) highly secretive giant monster movie Pacific Rim has been released, giving us a look at Idris Elba (Thor, Prometheus) suited up and ready for action as General Stacker Pentecost:

A homage to Japanese kaiju movies (Godzilla et al), Pacific Rim is set in an alternate future where giant monsters have risen from the ocean, leading to an all out war against humanity, who fight back by piloting massive robots known as Jaegers. With defeat looming, the fate of mankind comes to rest in the hands of two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam; Children of Men, Sons of Anarchy) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi; Babel, The Brothers Bloom).

Pacific Rim is currently set for release on July 12th, 2013. »
