Charlie Hunnam has quietly been building quite the career for himself and has certainly come a long way since Byker Grove and Queer As Folk. Most famous for his turn as Jax Teller in the excellent Sons Of Anarchy, he has to this point appeared in some quality films, but it might just be his lead role in Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim that proves to be his star-making moment.
It's seemingly no secret that Warner Bros is pleased with Pacific Rim, and it's shaping up to be one of the highlights of a rather impressive line up of summer cinema.
